Michelle's Pre-Bridals...

A few weeks ago I shoot a prebridal portrait session with Armin DeFiesta for an upcoming wedding I was assisting him on. Well, this wedding was today! The rain held off for us and ended up being a really fun wedding. Now that the dress is no longer being kept a secret I'm excited to share! So, in honor of Michelle and Jared's wedding here are some of my favorites from her Pre Bridal Session! Check back to see the wedding, coming soon!

Little Miss Independent

Yesterday I hung out with little miss "R" and her mom and dad at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna. I had never been there before and it is beautiful! A really great place to take your kids and just let them run, which is just what "R" did! She is 1.5 and raring to go! One year olds are always my trickiest clients to keep up with but I did my best and good some really cute shots along our walk through the gardens.
She's a cutie, enjoy!

I thought this one was cute, it looks like she's wearing a flower halo.

There were a lot of geese waddling around and once she saw them she was mesmerized!

Have a great week!

A fun photo idea!

A good photography friend of mine, Stevie, also has a crafty side! She is so creative and has come up with some really awesome ideas for photo jewelery and ornaments. Check out her site by clicking HERE. If you'd like to order one of her items with one of the photos from your session with me just let me know and I will send her the image.
Here are some samples of her work:

3.5 going on 30...

Today I had a great time photographing Mr. "N" for his 3 year old pictures. He was so adorable and kept me laughing the whole time with the vocabulary of a 30 year old and the silliness of a 3 year old. He wasn't wearing a "Wonder Boy" shirt for nothing! The shirt fit the boy!

A fun accessory!

I just wanted to share an adorable Etsy designer that I've recently discovered that also makes me itch for the cooler days of fall. She creates the most adorable crocheted hats for babies, kids and adults! I think I'm going to pick up a few for Haley and maybe a stash for clients to borrow for fall pictures. They are so trendy and really help accentuate the eyes.
Take a look some of my faves from the Portland Beanie Company and let me know if you would be interested in using them in an upcoming shoot and maybe I'll pick some up!
