two awesome shoots!

I had two very awesome shoots this weekend!  First, Michelle & Graham’s wedding on Saturday was just so much fun.  I can’t wait to share more, but here’s one from them riding a tricycle back down the aisle.

Then on Sunday we shot Laura & Oliver’s newlywed/day after session.  I love these sessions because the couple isn’t worried about time or getting back to their guests, so we can take our time and really flex our creative muscles.  Ok, so, I can’t take full credit for this photo.  When Oliver said they had brought an umbrella, it reminded me of an image I had seen on someone’s blog (if I can find it I’ll post a link).  But, I must say, Oliver totally pulled off the relaxed face while jumping.  That is very hard to do!

And, one of me showing Laura her next pose. :)

I love these pics! Especially the riding down the aisle on a tricycle and jumping with the umbrella! Very cool!

Marli & James – baby photography

I am REALLY loving newborn photography lately.  It’s definitely something I’m working on expanding.  I’ve been hunting in vintage shops, or really any store I go to, for new props.  I always tell my boys, “Look for something I can put a baby in.” Ok, I actually us the word “shove,” but I would never do something that would put a baby in danger.  Whenever a baby is in or on something (like a sling or stool) at least one parent is just inches away in case they start wiggling.  So, meet Ashton’s sister, Marli!  She is such a sweetie!

At first, she kept sticking her leg out, but once she settled in, she was so peaceful I didn’t want to take her out!

Arghhh…the newborn pirate eye.

Brother and sister!  This pretty much sums up Ashton. :)

Marli & Ashton’s mom went to high school with me, and she is still friends with my friend, Laura.  So I had Laura come to see Marli, but also to get a few of her 6mo son, James!  He is the sweetest, most happy chubby baby I’ve ever seen!  I’m a proud auntie. :)

This is a pose I probably wouldn’t normally do, but since she had one like this of her first born, and since she is my BFF, I did it.  I just love his eyes and mouth in this one.

These are very cute! What is that little egg shaped thing Marli is in? It makes for very cute, egg-shaped/uterus-inspired shots! Love that! James is so cute too! You can hardly even notice his scar in the first one. :)
