Ella on the way!

I got a phone call a couple of weeks ago from Monika. She wanted some maternity shots of herself with her husband, Jeff, but was a bit concerned about the timing. "I'm nine months pregnant!" she said. She was worried baby Ella would arrive before we had a chance to get some photos of the belly. A few days later (and still pregnant), she, Jeff and I were at Hoopes Park snapping photos. After the park, we went to the house to get some more intimate shots with the backdrop. I think I might hire Monika as an image consultant. She had some great ideas for poses including the one below of her and Jeff at the park. Best wishes for the safe and speedy delivery of baby Ella!

Sara & Hugh at The Center

I have never met a more laid back bride than Sara. Her decision to have The Center, a holistic wellness spa in Auburn, host her wedding may have been the reason she and her bridesmaids were so relaxed when I arrived to shoot her prep. Beautiful, smiling Sara and her ladies got off to a happy start, which led to a great day (The rain stopped!) I think that shot of Sara, Hugh and the whole crew highlights the vibe. These guys and gals were lots of fun!

Senior Banners

More new stuff! My lab now offers these fun 7"x24" banners. They're printed on a lightweight vinyl, and the quality is excellent! They're pretty enough to put in a frame, but durable enough to just stick to the wall like a poster and/or fit inside a school locker.

I recently ordered a folio and am really loving its simplicity and elegance! Folios are individually handbound with Japanese bookbinding fabrics and Swiss ribbons that come in 18 different colors. Each folio is designed to fold into a small book with a ribbon closure or be displayed open like a frame. They make for sophisticated showpieces and/or gifts.
