i've been obsessed with this martha stewart ruffle cake ever since i saw it on pinterest. i realized that with four boys i probably wouldn't be making this sweet, pink, ruffle of joy anytime soon.  however, i found a really good excuse ... my neighbor patty's birthday. ok, so i ran out of frosting and the 2nd batch wasn't quite the same but there's always next time.  it was good practice and i really had fun making it anyway. of course patty, my other neighbor lynda and the boys loved it! happy birthday patty, we love you :)

i'm finally back to the blog world after a winter break i gave myself.  spent most of the time with my kiddos and i focused a lot on the family and home stuff. i have so many incredible weddings, engagement sessions and lifestyle sessions from 2010 that i still have not blogged. i'm hoping to start back up a trickle them in as time goes. i have my first wedding of the year on saturday and i am so excited for the season to begin.  taking a break really helps refresh my creative juices after such a busy year. i needed some down time to be the best i can be in the coming months.  not to mention my poor family missed me. so to begin here are emily and matt!  they are just adorable and i'm so excited for their upcoming wedding.  we used the red balloon bc i know emily loves red balloons. she's planning for all her guests to have one red balloon at the end of her ceremony ... in which they will let go all at once.  i can't wait for that photo op. so for now enjoy some of my favorites from their session and i'll be back soon :)

i'm finally blogging the last wedding of 2010! thanks to katie and david for such an amazing day and being so patient! katie was a dream bride and also a former bridesmaid. she is creative, sweet, and incredibly organized. david was also a sweetheart who comes with a big loving family. they had a beautiful fall wedding and i absolutely loved all the colors on their day! another thanks to the "other katie's" katie swift and my associate photographer katie albrecht for shooting this wedding with me. many of the images below are from them as well, i just can't remember which ones exactly, haha! just adored these two families and i can't wait to shoot maggie's (the brides sister's) wedding later this year! thanks again and enjoy some of my favorites of the day ...
