Sister, Sister

family lifestyle personal portraits

So I was in my home town last month. It’s up in the beautiful pacific north west, and I try to take advantage of as much as I can while I’m there (we just don’t have trees like this in Florida). I asked my little sister if she wanted to go for a walk with me. We had quite a few uncharacteristically sunny days while I was up there. It was so beautiful, but the days were so short. It felt like the sun had just managed to get up into the sky and it was setting again. Regardless I was spoiled.

Here’s my little sister. She has an adventurous spirit and is about to embark on another one. When I look at these photos, especially the close ups I see my older brother. I’m not sure how I turned out so different (I always suspected I was adopted, but too many people tell me I look like my mom, and that I’m just like my dad). As we get older though, I find we have more and more in common.

Here’s Char ::

Yes, I even talked her into doing some jumping photos.

Deneen and Peter: The Holidays
So you know when you meet a couple and you walk away thinking "wow, those two are so perfect for eachother."  They compliment eachother, they radiate back and forth from one another, and they're so happy together.  This is just another reason I love doing this.  Getting to meet people which such positive energy, who are fun to be around and effortless in front of the camera (despite what Peter may think).  And it makes the shoot more relaxed when you feel like you can really relate to the people in front of your lens. The highlight of the shoot was getting kicked off the little kiddie train because I kept turning around to take photos of t ...

Southampton Engagement Photography :: A Proposal
Happy Friday! One week from today and I will be on my way to Europe for 4 months. Today is also the last shoot I'm doing before leaving. It happens to be my favorite kind too. Can you guess? Definitely ending things on a high note. This is a proposal I shot a few weeks back for a friend of mine. Proposal turned mini e-sesh. It was a complete surprise and I was posing like I was just taking a photo of the sunset. Very fun to be a part of. Here is Andrew and Hannah ::

Sheesh! I ODed on wedding planning this past week.  Like right now, I don't even want to think about my wedding for the next month. This is probably why people hire wedding planners (silly us). But we are planning ours from afar, so given the opportunity and 10 days in the NorthWest, it's probably best that I made use of the time I had there to really tackle a huge part of the planning. And I keep asking myself: Is this all really going to come together? I'm almost in tears over what I feel like I have in front of me right now. But amongst all this planning I also got to sit down with our wedding photographer and talk to her about what us, ...
