You may remember Melanie from awhile back, when she came to me for some post-wedding photos.  Well, she came back for a boudoir session for her one year anniversary!  Afterward, she told me how beautiful she felt, and was showing the pictures to everyone (so, yes, I have permission to post these!).  She even took the “Groom’s book” to her family vacation in Australia!  She took a risk, and did something that was out of the ordinary for her, and in turn her confidence was boosted, and she realized how beautiful she is on the outside, as well as the inside.  Her response inspired me to start something that I will be sharing next week or so, so stay tuned!

    Beautiful pics! Melanie is totally hot! I’d be more confident and show off pics like these too if I looked anywhere near as good as she does! Lucky hubby! ;) Happy first anniversary to another beautiful couple!

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these pictures!! She is so amazingly beautiful… and you captured that.
    Great work, and great subject!

Happy New Year!!  It seems like, after reading so many other blogs and Facebook updates, that pretty much everyone is relieved 2009 is over, and is ready to start a new decade!  I really didn’t expect to, but after Christmas and then New Years, I did feel a sense of relief and am re-energized to start the new year.  That could have something to do with me being really sick the last two weeks of 2009, though.  lol  After the craziness of work after my surgery, then the holidays, I feel like I can now really focus on expanding and improving my business.  In fact, there’s something I’m very excited about, and will be announcing very soon.

One new thing for me is an ad in Portland Bride & Groom!  I’ve always really liked this magazine, and even found my own wedding photographer in it (6 years ago!).
