love + beach = awesome!

Yesterday I got a chance to photography Huy & Ruth. It was an absolutely gorgeous day on Lido Beach. The clouds were picture perfect! These kids are so stinking adorable, not to mention wicked photogenic! Good thing Ruth played the birthday card to talk Huy into it, cause they turned out so sweet & by the end, Huy was coming up with awesome pose ideas! I had a blast, hope you did too! Enjoy!



This one was Huy's idea... see what I mean! So romantic :)

PHOTO CONTEST FRIDAY... Tuesday Edition :)

Hello all! Hope your weekends were splendid! My little sister was in town visiting and it was simply having too fabulous a time to work. :) But without further ado, I give you the winner of the details contest.....


[click me for more awesomeness]

Awe! I mean itty bitty baby feet detail shot.... talk about a trump card!
Great shot Katye!
Thank you everyone for all the awesome entries!

Well party people, I am going to hold off on the contests for a bit. Things here are going to be simply mad until the end of September. I'm moving, finishing my website & traveling 3 of the 4 weekends in September... so look for the contests to make a comeback in the fall. In the meantime.... keep challenging yourselves, keep finding ways to make your work new & interesting.
Keep thinking outside the box!

Photo Contest Friday Returns!!

Wow, it has been AGES since the last photo contest and I am terribly sorry for my lack of foresight. I was traveling every weekend last month and even if the airport advertises free wi-fi... that doesn't meant it actually works at a speed conducive to um... loading google.

So to make it up to you, I give you not 1, but 3 photos from the contest for "Favorite Photo"


Beth Weaver

This beautiful photo is from her honeymoon in Florida. Awe, how romantic & obviously sentimental!
[Also... congratulations!]

Joel and the Pig Roast

Daniel Friedman
[click me!]

This photo was taken at summer camp of the head cook preparing a pig roast. There was much anticipation for this feast & it made for a memorable and well-framed photo!

Blow me some smoke

Karina Picache
[click me!]

This photo is from early on in the career of Karina, and understandably an enduring favorite! That face, wow, does it make anyone else think of Johnny Depp?

so there you have it... 3 awesome favorites and 1 penitent blogger :)

Moving right along and onto the NEXT... PHOTO.... CHALLENGE.......

D E T A I L S H O T !


Details, details, details, yes sir-e it only takes a teeny little interesting piece of the scene to tell the story, and often in a far more powerful way. So this week when you're shooting... stop & take a closer look. Then send your awesome detail shot to:

Happy shooting, and don't forget, less is more :)

My old stomping grounds

Yes, I am actually blogging. :) I have been traveling every weekend for the last 5 weeks straight! Can't complain, it has been such a blast, but I have definitely gotten behind on the blog!
Today I bring you a photos from the wedding of Jenny & Greg. They got married in Greg's parents backyard, just on the other side of The Charles from where I lived for almost 4 years! Small world!
Well I had an absolute blast working with the whole family. They are SUCH a sweet couple! I have heaps & heaps of favorites from this shoot. Enjoy the change of scenery around the blog. :)
