I was SOOO fortunate, 13 years ago, to randomly be placed with this girlie as a college roommate.

SHE even introduced me to my future husband on my 21st birthday…how fun is that??? :)

H came to visit us from Colorado this weekend. We had *so* much fun playing with the kiddos (she completely spoils them rotten!), dining out, shopping, etc. I LOVE that she’s great friends with me AND my husband — we have so many awesome stories from the past and just have a great time together!

After a photo session on Sunday, I nabbed her away from my family at home and we did a session together! We had SOOO much fun and have so many gorgeous choices.

Have a super day — thanks so much for stopping by! ~m

{a lovely wedding}

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Lovely, lovely bride and groom!  SO creative, in LOVE, and what fun at this amazing location!  I LOVE that they wanted images in a bus…near an old green truck…in front of a dumpster…next to a bunch of bright blue recycling bins.  They saw beyond “junk” and recognized the beauty.  I LOVE it when clients have that kind of trust in their photographer!!!

I am so happy I had the opportunity to second shoot this wedding with the uber-talented (and super sweet) Jeanette LeBlanc. We were a great team and the day went by really quickly!

Have a super day! I have some shoots during the week (due to spring break) so be on the lookout for some fresh faces. :) ~m

It was *so* nice to see them again! Have a terrific day. :) ~m

A couple more from the vintage photo shoot. :) I’ve been having fun experimenting with texture & different processing on these.

I plan on posting some more on Facebook today so all the models can see! If you’re not my Facebook “friend” yet, request me! I’ve been having fun posting pics on there the last few days. :)

I’ll be out of the “office” through Monday — we’re off to visit family in Colorado. I plan on doing a couple blog posts while we’re there, but will be out of touch via phone. I have a super fun family shoot scheduled while we’re out there + we’re planning on having some fun in the snow again with the kiddos.

Have a great day. ~m

A couple days ago I was part of an awesome photography shoot — I think it’s incredibly important to just shoot for fun, and this is what we did! I met many super sweet photographers, models, AND an awesome makeup artist. We met at a nearby farm and had full access to animals, buildings, props, etc.

{As you can see, I was like a kid in a candy store} :)

Yup, that’s a bath tub. :)

And an orange grove.

And a leaf-filled ground.

And lastly, a coolio carport.

I have SOOOoo sooo many favorites it’s killing me! Today I decided to just put one in of each model –all with slightly different processing. It’s always fun to experiment!!! :)

Tomorrow, you get to see more! Wahooo. :)

Have a spectacular day! ~m

I remember when smooches looked and felt like this from my daughter.  :)   
Aren’t they adorable? 

Aren’t these fun? It’s just so apparent that the love is just flowing and flowing in this fam — it was so much fun to photograph them. Even more from this session soon!

Off to a photography convention in Phoenix so I can be a sponge for two days — have a great day! ~m

inside & out

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

THIS wonderful woman is gorgeous on the inside and out. I was fortunate to meet her when my hubs and I moved from Colorado to Florida several years ago. I met C in choir and after a little while, she invited me over to a social gathering at her place.

You see, C is 100% social, bubbly, genuine, real — always going a bazillion miles an hour. She’s on every committee or board that presents itself. A terrific singer, mom, friend, AND she’s awesome as a career woman, too. I am a better person for knowing her — I just wish she and her family weren’t so darn far away.

Anyway, at this point in C’s career, she’s going to be doing some branching out and when she visited several months ago, we decided she needed some professional photos…we knocked these out in a couple minutes in my garage. Gotta love garage light! :)

I was a tad behind on my “friend” editing, so I worked it OUT tonight!!! C–your images will be uploaded tomorrow and then we can chat — I can’t WAIT to see what 2009 has in store for your career. You’ll be amazing…

Have a super day! ~m

Happy Holidays!

Wednesday, December 24th, 2008

I just love everything about this time of year, and it seriously gets better every year, as I get to see this magical holiday through the eyes of my children. I’ll be taking lots of pics in the next few days and enjoying family time…sooooo…..I am going to be taking a week long bloggity break!!! Woo hooo.

I am thrilled to spend time with family from out of town, and I want to be able to spend 100% of my time with family & friends. It’s been entirely too busy around here!!! :) My amazing pal T is having a baby, literally hours away, so I’ll be surrounding myself in newborn goodness and family togetherness as they get to finally meet and experience this new miracle in their lives. I feel SO honored to be able to be a part of this with them.

I have a few sessions to still complete (including a SUPER fun going away party that got a little PG-13!!!) and then I start off 2009 with a super fun maternity shoot on the 1st. I cannot wait!!!

I’ll see you in 2009…stay safe, merry, and I can’t wait to see what the new year brings.

.:Young LOVE:.

I had an awesome Friday afternoon with this super cool couple. They were TONS-o-fun: constantly laughing, loving, & smiling. I have so many fresh and fun images from this session, choosing which images to present in their gallery is going to take me FORever!!! :)

These two are both dancers, so stay tuned for some *hot* dancin’ pics…with toe and tap shoes. :)

K and D — you two are incredible & I’m so excited for the both of you for your October wedding!

Have a great weekend. ~m
