Hello FALL

Summer, as much as I enjoy and love you, it's been real... Fall is here! My absolute favorite season, and no, not just because it includes my birthday. I adore the weather, the colors, the smells. Fall is just a beautiful and magical time of the year. Plus, some of my favorite holidays: Thanksgiving and Halloween (and my birthday, of course)! So, Fall, I welcome you! With a recent trip to Cox Farm's Fall Festival, I got the chance to take some fall inspired pictures, finally!

Oh, have I mentioned....I LOVE apples!!? Delicious! Cox farm has some of the best. And the cider is pretty delicious too.

This blog post is pretty over-due. So I'm overloading it will all my recent activity! I wanted to share my love for all things rustic and old. Check out some of these pictures, old cars, old barns, things covered in rust. And I had some artistic liberties here... Exploring some editing techniques. Let me know what you think!

Now for my most recent work! I had a busy few days... And got to meet some amazing people! Check out this picture below... Amazing colors!

I also did a shoot with some AMAZING kiddies... Colin & Valentina, at the National Zoo! More on the Facebook page :)

And check out these from Darbi & Jay's wedding. Can you say GORGEOUS?

Until next time!! And don't forget to enter the raffle on Facebook for a FREE portrait session! :)

My Second Passion

So, those of you who know me well enough (or even very little, I'm kinda obnoxious about the subject) know that I adore DOGS. I'm constantly talking about dogs, and oogling over them when I see them in public. Which makes me such an awkward person to take walks with, I'm sorry. I dream of the day I have my own army of dogs--I even joke with my mom, telling her that the reason I'm in college is so I can get a job and afford to have two great danes! I work for an awesome dog walking company, Pampered Pooch, and get to meet so many awesome dogs, cat, and other critters.

This week, I got to meet some awesome new pups... Check them out!!

So here it is--my BLOG. I can honestly say that I never really saw myself creating a blog, but it seems the hip thing to do, and it's been on my to-do list for quite some time now. I'm so excited to be entering into this "photography" world. As long as I get to take pictures...I'll be happy! I can't wait to start--so book me for some sessions! Anything and everything!
I really wanted to create this blog not as a great marketing tool or to get my name out there, but to really connect with my friends, fans and prospective clients, and share my latest and favorite images with all of you. I also feel like this is a terrific way for me to keep you all up to date with all of my ongoing plans & projects. I plan to post pictures with recent sessions, product news as well as other happenings in my life. So check back often & leave a comment if you'd like! I can't wait to hear from you!

And no photography blog is complete without pictures....
So here are some shots from a recent session with two beautiful ladies who happen to be two amazing friends!!

Until next time... :)
