Nikki + Jesse Engagement

Don't ya just love looking at adorable couples? I do. I love shooting them too; especially the ones who love to laugh like these two. Everyone, meet Nikki and Jesse; two of the most adorable people I've worked with this year. So easy and natural to shoot, and a ton'o fun to play around with. Rain or shine, this session was NOT getting moved and even though we didn't have much sun to work with, it didn't make the shoot any less fun and beautiful. How could it... Look at those smiles!

Jeanette - Bridal

It's not often that a bride brings her groom to her bridal shoot, but if you want to have the time to take quality photos together and know your wedding day won't really allow the time, this is the way to do it for sure!  Jeanette and Daniel aren't new to this blog, but they are recognizable because of their amazing chemistry shooting together. This pair almost needs zero direction because they are so comfortable working together in front of the lens. Aren't they beautiful?!?

Briana - Boudoir

It was a busy weekend with lots of shooting involved and I'm marking another studio favorite down with the shoot I had with Briana.  As pretty as she is sweet, this was not only a breeze for the both of us to get through, she came packed with a toy box full of props, ideas, and changes that complimented everything about her personality and made her shoot terrific! I LOVE my job :-)

Rachel - Boudoir

Hi everyone and welcome to the new studio! This year's Boudoir Bash is turning out fabulous so I am so excited to finally be able to post some sneaks of the fun stuff we're creating in there. Meet Rachel. Pretty much perfect in every way; can wear a trash bag and still look absolutely beautiful in front of the camera lens. But to make things extra perfect, she packed a fantastic toy box of fun clothes and ideas to play with. To sum it up, this was a fun shoot!

Looking forward to ALL of the fantastic sessions at the new photo crib.

Kristie - Bridal

What a terrific week! This was a busy one for me (still is), but it's turning out to be a fantastic one for shooting. I think most of you have met Kristie and Ric before... But here they are in their day after/bridal shoot. These sessions work so much better than on the actual day because the couple is much more relaxed about their wearing formals, not having to worry about timelines, worrying if they're going to slip on the vow front, etc. It's just a casual time to be together and take some really great photos. OH! And looks who else made a return appearance; DUDLEY!!!!! Soooo sweet!!!

And thanks Heather for doing another show-stopping job on another beautiful subject. I think we can call Kristie a Paper Dolls "All-Star" now, can't we?!?  So pretty :-)

Julia - Bridal

I love bridal sessions. I never feel like I get to do enough of them because I just love them so much. Why? Sessions like THIS! This was the perfect day for shooting an outdoor bridal session; the sun was starting to go down so I could get that fabulous "rim light", the breeze was pleasant, the gardens were stunning, and well, Julia is just a complete doll and is so wonderful in front of the camera! 

Another great day :-)
