My Muse!

Sometimes you meet people who simply inspire you.  Inspire you to try, to improve, to just do.  Justine does this for me.  She is a great friend, my #1 cheerleader, my go-to person for different ideas I have about my business and above all, my muse.  🙂  Aside from being obviously gorgeous, she’s also willing try anything- especially when it comes to my photography visions.  Like I said, she is a GREAT friend!   

This past Sunday Justine and I drove out to Harrisburg for a concept shoot with the ultra-fabulous, Kacy Jo!  I met Kacy this past summer and I just adore her.  She allowed us to play on her turf and although it was freezing cold, we had a great time and managed to produce some amazing shots!  Justine & Kacy- thank you for being awesome friends!  Enjoy!!

Reflection: 2008

Wow.  I cannot believe that a year has already gone by.  Where did it go?  Honestly…?  To say that this past year was busy would be a total understatement.  2008 was crazy- and I loved every minute of it!!  🙂  It has been a year of growth, discovery, purification and blessings.  I am so fortunate to have the support from family, friends and clients, to do what I love. 

As chaotic as this past year has been, I am hoping, praying and planning on doubling my workload as I push forward with my new brand, equipment, style and ambition!  2008 was good to me, but I can’t wait to see what 2009 brings!  Here is a little collection of some of my favorite images of 2008.  Enjoy!

Scott & Brittney- Engagement Session

As you can see from my earlier post, we made our way up to Seattle two weekends ago.  The main purpose of the trip was for my Engagement Session with Scott & Brittney.  🙂  Brittney and I are family.  Our Grandma’s are sisters, our dad’s are cousins, so I believe that makes her and I third cousins.  I can recall spending many days out in Crow, the tiny town our Grandma’s grew up in, riding quads, taking hikes and playing “Murder”.  🙂  (“Murder” is really “Aggravation”)  

Anyway, when I saw the little Facebook post late one night that read: “I’m Engaged”- I was so excited for them!  The wall-to-wall posts began and I demanded details!  🙂  When Brittney & Scott chose Jeff and I as their Photographers, we were thrilled!  We can’t begin to express how grateful and honored we are that you chose us for your special day.

The Engagement Session was so much fun- even if we did get lost a few times.  Hehe!  It’s all just part of the bonding, right?  🙂  We can’t wait for the wedding and I hope you LOVE your pics!!

When we were finished with the shoot, we drove by a building that was completely lit up.  We had to stop- I am so glad we did because I am totally in love with this shot!!  🙂  Personal fav!!

Brandon- Senior Shoot

Months ago my dear friend Bonnie asked me to do her Grandson’s senior pictures.  I was thrilled- not only because senior sessions are my favorite sittings to do, but also because I simply adore Bonnie.  🙂  We met up two weekends ago out in Marcola to do pictures on Brandon’s family’s property and some other meaningful places to them. 

This session will always stand as one of my all-time favorites, not only did I get to spend time getting to know Bonnie’s family, they were also gracious enough to ask me to bring my family, too.  🙂  This meant a lot to me because my kids rarely go with me on shoots and I love when they can be involved in something I love so much. 

Brandon, I hope you and your family love your pictures!!!  Oh, and we absolutely loved the Halloween Card- THANK YOU!!  🙂

This picture just warms my heart.  🙂  I had the honor of photographing this little cutie, Addison, while she was in her Mama’s tummy and again when she was a infant.  Brandon and Addison are cousins and although they are years apart in age, they share a very special bond with each other.  So precious!!

Brandon’s Grandpa built this covered wagon, along with a gorgeous carriage.  His Grandpa has some serious talent, I was in awe.  🙂  Thank you for allowing us to use both in some pictures!!

Mark & Justine- Engagement Session

Last Sunday was fabulous!  I am good friends with Justine and her fiance, Mark.  I was so excited to do their engagement session- they are honestly the cutest couple.  Ever.  🙂  I love engagement sessions because the sessions are very casual and in most cases, this is my chance to get to know the future Bride & Groom before their wedding day.  When the engaged couples are friends of mine, it makes the experience even more fun.  Mark & Justine, you two rock and I adore you both!  Although the wedding is a few years out- I can’t wait for it to happen!  🙂  I hope you love your pictures!!!

Alex- Senior Session

I was thrilled to get a call from some life-long family friends, asking me to pictures for their son, Alex.  Hollis and her sister, Erica, grew up across the street from me and my brother, Eric.  (Funny, right??)  They were older than us, we were the “tag-alongs” that wouldn’t leave them alone.  🙂  Anyway, I met up with their family on Sunday and we got some great shots of Alex.  Like all guys, he wasn’t really into having his pictures done at first, but when we got about halfway through, he was a pro.  🙂  I hope you guys love the pictures- Alex you were awesome! 

I had to include this precious picture of ALex with his little sister, Olivia.  🙂  Too cute!!
