married: Amanda + Gideon

what happens when a handsome guy meets a gorgeous girl?
well, sometimes they are very lucky and fall in love and choose to get married. and then if i am very lucky, they give me a call and i get to be a part of making their special day a lasting memory!
my job is easy when the couple is this beautiful. and i feel especially blessed when the bride is so near and dear to my heart. i have known Amanda for the past 3 years, and she continues to astonish me with her kindness and grace. it makes me unbelievably happy that she has found someone who mirrors that kindness and enables her to grow and shine. thanks you two, for including me in your wedding!

engaged: Amanda + Gideon

beautiful girl + handsome young man = one happy couple

i have known Amanda a long time, i have only known Gideon a short time. but what i know about Amanda is that she is one smart cookie, who works hard, plays hard, and knows how to make good choices. therefore, what i do know about Gideon is he is one lucky guy.

i can't wait for December 18th!!!!

baby Scarlett

this girl was born to be a princess. when i was preparing for Scarlett's shoot, i knew exactly what i wanted to do. her mom's front room is luminous, literally, it is silver. so, i knew i wanted drama. i threw this red tutu into my bag of tricks for Scarlett. it seemed appropriate.

was it ever! mom did not shy away from the "Scarlett in red" idea. she was already planning on it with this big red daisy!

this baby was a dream, sleeping the entire time. but she did not want to change sides, she was comfy just the way she was!

three times the fun

when i agreed to photograph a family with 20 month old triplets, i have to say, i was a little nervous. my fears were put to rest immediately upon meeting these little angels. meet Rhianna, Jessica, and Aissa.

they were a littel wary of me when i invaded their house, but when we got over to the park, they started to like me. especially when i told them they could go play while i got to know mom and dad.
these two are the cutest, down to earth couple. obviously devoted parents, (he works days/she works nights, so the girls don't have to go to daycare), they are set to get married in April! with triplet toddlers Tara and Juan don't get a lot of one on one time. they laughed at how long it had been since they sat and looked into each others' eyes.

i hope you guys are taking a LONG honeymoon!

Tara, you will be a beautiful bride!
we headed on over to the playgound - really, just looking at this picture makes me feel tired. three under two!
the whole family got in on the act!
then we settled down, and got ready to trick or treat!
hope you guys had a happy halloween! thanks for sharing your day with me. i know your future is looking rosey with your happy little garden!
