It was the last week end of May, a beautiful day on Perdido Beach. Leigh and Brian exchanged their vows, surrounded by their family and friends. They are both smitten with each other and it was a pleasure for Dorene and I to photograph their wedding, record their love. Nancy’s Hautes Affairs was in charge of the catering, and it was as usual beautiful and delicious.
Parker was born on April 20th and was 2 months old on these pictures. A couple years ago, I photographed his older brother, Austin, as a surprise gift for their mother, Michelle. This time I met Michelle, who looked lovely and blissful holding her baby. The sun wasn’t very cooperative that day and Parker didn’t care much for all my posing concepts, but we still managed to get a few tender moments. Michelle and Scott, thank you again for trusting me to capture this very special time in your little boy’s life.
This past week I have purchased a few new props for newborn photography that I’m very eager to put to good use, so keep an eye out for some innovative images.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful labor day weekend.
Waiting in a Dr’s office, one day, I saw this adorable little girl with her mother. I worked up my courage to introduce myself, give her mother Dawn, one of my business cards, all the while trying not to look like a pushy greedy photographer. I had wanted before to walk up to complete strangers to ask if I could photograph them, just because something about them inspired me, but up until that day had never overcome the fear to appear a like a deranged lady. Dawn never called me, but a wonderful opportunity came by, while one of my friends had Ella for an afternoon play date. It’s the red hair, her milky complexion, the beautiful auburn long eye lashes, her angelical face, her bright smile, all with the sweetest disposition, I’m swoon over lovely Ella. As the weather cools down, I’m hoping for an other chance, a little more time to capture her gentle spirit through my lens.
This has got to be the funniest and cutest little series of pictures. Ella had just put on her bathing suit, and was giving us a bootie dance, cheered by my friend Amy.
