jessica's a former bride and i was thrilled when she called to schedule a maternity session. she is such a natural beauty and dan is a great guy and so fun to be around. they drove up from cincinnati on a cold winter day so we did most of the shooting in the studio. we had fun listening to the band cake on the i-pod and then ran out for some starbucks while grabbing a few outdoor shots. i'm dying to meet their little one in a couple months. stay warm and i'll see you soon!
sorry for the time away but i had such a crazy december that i took a break from blogging. many of you have hinted about when my next post was going to be ... and here it is! it's winter in ohio and lately a lot of grey skies, some snow but mostly wet and cold weather around here. i've been cooking up a storm at home with the kids, organzing my house and designing gallery wraps for my 2009 clients. i know i've said this before but i need to take pictures of the beautiful wall collages we've done because they are gorgeous! we just did a fun shoot for "flour and child". whitney the owner is a former bride, maternity and family client but most of all a fabulous baker and friend. she has a blog which you should check out if you want to get a hold of some of her goodies! her baked goods are scrumptious!!! i ordered some special for our family and friends over the holidays because they are sooo delicious. thanks to amanda for helping me shoot. whitney brought her kiddos to help style the session ... they were so cute!
i went up to chicago a few weeks ago to photograph jenny and jarrod's engagement session. it was a chilly but beautiful december morning. i had such a nice time meeting them and spending a couple hours running around downtown chicago. jarrod use to play hockey and we randomly ran into an ice skating rink ... i asked them if they wanted to take a few laps around the rink .... they said yes! of course i was excited ... i love when couples do things that are unique, different but meaningful in some way. thanks again for a great session and i can't wait to see you both again!
the night before christmas ... and all through the house .... i was cooking up our christmas dinner. while waiting for our roast to reach the perfect temperature i grabbed the computer to blog a quick post. i found this picture of our boys from a short 3 years ago. how time zooms by! we're enjoying every minute of it!!!! have a merry christmas everyone :)
