Aaron’s coconut

My son just had to have a coconut and I just had to play with my new 16-35 lens. 

The booth see you at booth 102!

Chris rocked out putting holes and grommets in my pictures for the backdrop.  He is so awesome and I know it was a lot of work.  I will be hanging out at booth 102 at George Mason on Sunday.  Here are some silly images of the pictures. 




Fort Armistead Park Model Session

My good friend Jamie invited me to hang out with 3 amazing models from Model Mayhem last Saturday.  It was awesome to play around w/lighting and angles in an extremely edgy location.  I loved it!

It is always so hard to choose. 

 





















Laura and Rich’s wedding 4/5/08

Since taking my photography to another level I really shocked myself with my ability to shoot images of something happening in life I am not sure I could ever look out without the camera. I feel I am to document what I see. But very rarely do I attend a wedding and not cry. I am not sure why my emotions take over me; I watch the bride and groom when they first see each other and feel something magical in myself take over and smile inside remembering my special day with Chris. I watch the ring bearer and flower girl run up the isle looking for their Mother and smile knowing they are just like my children. I hear the speeches and laugh and cry. But lately the Mother and son dances are really hitting home with me. I think of my son one day finding his love and leaving home to start a new life. I watch the Father and Daughter dance knowing one day Chris will have to do the same with Lauren and how I will be sitting on the side crying and laughing just like they are. Then the speeches start and all the tears I have attempted to hold in start flowing. The family and friends start to speak from their hearts that’s it I am attempting to hide my tears behind my camera. This really happened to me at Laura and Rich’s wedding. I saw so much tears of joy and knew exactly what Rich’s Mom was feeling and trying to keep inside. Laura’s sister had me in tears and thankfully made me laugh too. This wedding was full of love and I was so happy to be there and know why I do this. Besides being creative I get to be part of a lot of amazing people’s lives. It is not my norm to talk about weddings because they are all awesome, amazing and special. One never tops the love and beauty of another one but for once the person that never writes anything because frankly it’s not my strong point did. Thanks for having me guys and I look forward to the rest of my weddings this year knowing I will get to do it over and over again.
