I have to start off by apologizing for the long lapse in posts.  Totally unacceptable, I know, but hey, I’ve been out taking photos instead of editing them!

It was my nephew’s birthday this past weekend, and he turned the big 0-1.  One today, ten tomorrow – they grow up SO fast. In honor, of his birthday, I’m posting some images from when my husband and I recently were able to see little Ethan and my husband’s brother’s new house in the mountains. Look at how cute the hubster is with the little guy!

I love photographing headshots if only because I get to participate, even if only for a day, in helping someone else follow their dreams of doing what they love and I just so HAPPEN to be a huge proponent of doing just that. Of course, I was thrilled when Sarah asked me to photograph her because a) she’s pretty AND hilarious and b) we’re friends from way back when. So when she came up from Atlanta for her session, not only did we have a fun afternoon in the park, but we also got to catch up over a beer (or two) afterwards.  Next time you’re down in Atlanta, go have a laugh with Sarah – you can catch her performing at Relapse Theatre, Push Push, or Dad’s Garage.

It’s been so nice out lately, and my front porch in NC has been bursting with flowers.  In celebration of this, I’ve decided to post an image from a recent Kissable shoot that I think is very “springy”. Enjoy!

Suzie & Matt are such a fun couple, and they happen to be photographers themselves.  It’s always exciting and challenging to photograph fellow photographers. Many of them hate being in front of the camera (Guilty!), but not these two!

And by the way they were so snuggly, you’d expect them to have been engaged or recently married. Also, not so with these two! Going on five years of marriage and these two lovebirds can ‘out cute’ any newlyweds.

is the lovely Jennifer. Though, I wouldn’t recommend pinching her because she’s one tough lady! But only she can look this good snuggling a teddy bear. Hope you enjoy this boudoir session!

And she’s also in a class of her own.  Would anyone guess that she was sick with a cold this day?  I usually lie shivering, swaddled in layers of blankets, grasping on to moments of clarity with daytime television blaring in the background. Not Christi! She scoffs in the face of misery and glams it up.

Or at least Jared & Travis were and believe me, those cats really ARE fast as lightning.  I couldn’t resist!  As many of you know, I’ve been taking Kung Fu and so I was super excited when Jared and Travis both agreed to be photographed.  They are much more advanced than I, but I can’t wait until I can do these moves!

So lately, I’ve been photographing a lot of boudoir type photography. I know the imagery that might pop into your head when you think boudoir, but I promise I don’t break out the Ron Burgandy costume to take these type of photos. For our sakes, I’ve come up with a term that I hope is a little less creeptastic: Kissable.

I’m sure Lisa’s boyfriend will agree, that she looks very kissable in the following photos from a January shoot. I love photographing Lisa who is also my go to make-up artist!

Ta Da!

I’m so excited to FINALLY announce my blog.  I had been feeling overwhelmed with all the technologies out there to market yourself: Facebook, twitter, buzz, tumbler, blogging….and then the room would start to spin. I mean, I still break out the carton of ice cream every time a film stock is pulled off the shelves! What business did I have in starting a blog?

I admit, I wield my digital camera alongside my five film cameras, and yes, I do love all my cameras equally, but for some reason I resisted creating a blog.  Then, I had the realization that having a blog is a heck of a lot easier then updating your website every time you have a shoot. Especially for those shoots that gives you that excited feeling like the first time you picked up your camera.  And that’s been happening to me a lot lately. Sorry if that got a little corny – but it’s true!

So ta da!  Here’s to a new(ish) year and a new blog. Enjoy!
