Spring Portrait time!

Although the weather doesn’t feel like it, Spring is here!!! Time for shooting!!
The Murphy’s were one of my couples from 6 years ago who now have 2 beautiful little girls! I had already shot their oldest daughters portraits a few times but this was the first I had met their youngest daughter. Since it was a bit chilly, we stayed in the studio for the most part, but ventured outside for a minute to use the amazing light that was available. Here is a sneak peak guys before you head to Disney!!

Jenna and Ryan

About an hour before we were going to meet, Jenna and I realized that the St Patrick’s Day parade was starting around the time we wanted to shoot….. we scrambled for a new meeting place close by in the city. Jenna and Ryan were so good about changing things and wandering into not so great parts of the city when I had a crazy idea. These two are naturals and I can not wait for their wedding!!

So, let me explain this…
We were walking down the street and saw a little boy getting his photo taken by his Mom while he was hugging this fire hydrant. We only saw it from the back where it looked normal…. needless to say, it was quite hysterical. Then we saw the front and thought it was only appropriate to do the same.

I Do In Style… Amazing!!!

I Do In Style was a complete success! Jonnaysa from Planned Perfection put on another incredible show. So many talented vendors came together to make this show happen. The great thing about it was that it was not your typical bridal show. It wasn’t just tables set up around the room with vendors handing out info. It was everyone coming together to create such a collaboration of what your potential wedding could look like. Every table was set up differently showcasing most work. Everyone helped out one another and had a blast doing it! If you missed it, here is some of the hard work that went into the day.
I was so honored to have been part of this all!
