Fun with Fall!! - Ethan, Hannah and Emma

I have to admit, I was a little intimidated going into my first kids shoot. Mostly because I didn't know what to expect. But I think anyone would have been crazy to not fall in love with these three. Ethan, Hannah and Emma were so much fun and had such personality. Not to mention they are the poster children for all things adorable. It was tough to narrow down the shots for this post but here's what I came up with! Enjoy!

Thanks so much Sabrina and Rob for letting me capturing these great moments! I had a blast. :)

One Life to Love - Kerry and Jeff

I had so much fun doing this shoot. I'm used to working with Kerry in a professional capacity so the words, "This is a sexy shot... Show me sexy," didn't exactly roll off the tongue. Still we had a blast. Jeff and Kerry were all smiles the whole time and afterward we broke bread (where bread equals booze) at the local watering hole, Dogfish Head Alehouse. I will take photos of you any day!

And for those of you true One Life to Live fans (dad), you might recognize the handsome gentleman on Kerry's arm as Jeff Bankert (aka Tyler McGillis).

Kerry you are GORGEOUS and such a great friend! A million thank yous for being such a great sport!

Only You - Ash'Leigh and Marcus

Ash'Leigh laughs when she tells the story of how they first met. "I just walked up to him, because I was tired of him staring and not saying anything."

"That's not true," Marcus says.

I wait for his side of the story... He's got nothin'. So I'm guessing Ash'Leigh was right and that was in fact how it all went down that faithful day she decided to give fate a nudge and beckoned Marcus out of room #112.

On September 10, 2011 Ash'Leigh and Marcus will join together and mark the beginning of the rest of their lives as Mr and Mrs. I personally cannot be more happy to see these two tie the knot. They were amazing to work with and as you can see, madly in love. Congratulations on the engagement and I wish you both the very best!

Michele and Michale's Wedding Highlights

I know... Michele and Michale... Insert 'gaffaw' here. While they'd hired the amazingly talented Meg Baisden to shoot their wedding, and didn't "need" my services per se, I decided to use their wedding as practice and test out my photog skills to see if I'd made any improvements since my brother's wedding this past August. Fortunately for me, I had. Not so fortunate for my brother... Sorry Evan and Sarah!

A little about my cousin Michele... One of my first memories of Michele is this amazingly cool older cousin clad in a karl kani sweatshirt and "kicks" and an infectious laugh that could put a smile on anyone. Every time she visited I would get super excited because I knew that she'd share with me some tip on how to be cool like her. One visit, she taught me to twist my hair when it was wet to give it cool wavy curly effect. Another visit she bought me my first pair of cool sneakers, K-Swiss (and even showed me the cool way to lace them). And she gossiped with me, a little 13 year old, about my boy drama and helped me pick out a cool bodysuit to wear that would wow said boy with my oh so stylistic sense of fashion.

One thing I forgot to mention about my first memories of Michele was that in addition to being amazingly cool, she was also amazingly nice. A great person with a big heart. Nothing has changed in that department. So it was especially nice to see that she'd found someone equally as wonderful.

A BIG Congratulations to Michale and Michele Winn!
May you have a life filled with love and happiness.
