Happy Birthday Brody!

This past year has been a whirlwind. I keep looking back through my archives thinking "really he is ONE, no this can't be?!" It seems like just yesterday I was checking into the hospital for my quick delivery, bringing him home, waking up in the middle of the  night, watching him roll over, his first smile, andall of those other amazing firsts. My little baby  no longer resembles a baby but he will forever be my little one. my youngest, my love. I was very curious what his personality would develop into as he has grown. He is such a relaxed curious little guy.  He giggles when his brother and sister walk into the room and chuckles when daddy gets him in the neck. He now walks with that mummy stumble which always  gets a laugh out of everyone.  One day I will pull out all of his pictures from his first year and show them to him. He will probably think I am crazy for the thousands of pictures I have of him or appreciate that I captured him in a different way everyday. I am one very lucky mommy to have a healthy beautiful child!
Happy birthday to my Brody!!

Brides Galore!

Several weeks ago myself and fellow photographer friend Danielle Neil team up to start working on off camera flash. I am personally gearing up for my weddings this season and working on my new lighting to offer to my clients. Something more dramatic.  I also was lucky enough to have my friend and hairstylist Nancy come in to do hair. I think we will all remember that evening well with the chill in the air and the crazy crazy winds. All 3 brides really worked it out and we came home with some awesome images. Here are just a few!

Hard Work Pays Off

Handwashing the floors!

Moving props from one side to the other...What a mess!

Trying to beat a 2 second timer....this should tell the story.
Friday evening was spent with 4 wonderful ladies who volunteered their time to help me in the studio. We spent 4 hours washing 700 sq ft of floors, touching up paint and most important staging the studio for the upcoming Grand Opening. Hard work really pays off! I hope to see many of you at the studio Friday June 18th between 6-10pm.
