i was so honored when melanie mauer one of my favorite photographers and friend asked me to photograph her family.  she has a classic and timeless style and i couldn't wait to go down to lexington, kentucky for the shoot.  i was even more excited when melanie said she booked me and my family a stay at shaker village.  the landscape could not have been more perfect. check out their website because this place is such a gem. melanie tells me ... it's one of martha stewart's favorite places to stay and i can see why.

it was so nice to finally meet melanie's husband jason, her mom and her adorable little girl!
