Archive for January, 2010

What a fantastic day for a session!  January usually means snow and very cold temps, but we had an almost spring-like day this past Sunday!  I met with such a fun mom and senior for my last senior session of the 2010 graduating class.  This poor guy had to be exhausted.  He does it ALL!  Football, baseball, basketball…he had 3 games last week alone including a 5 hour bus ride the night before our session.  I was worn out just talking to him about it!  I can only imagine how his parents feel!

It was difficult for me to narrow this sneak peek down to only a handful of images.  Some people are just naturals in front of the camera and G is definitely one of them (whether he wants to hear it or not!)  It was such a pleasure working with him and now…the session preview…

Now, I have to tell a little story about this last set of images.  Only under one circumstance will the local high school allow a player to keep his football jersey–and it’s not a reason that anyone actually wants to experience.  This fall, this jersey was cut from G’s body by paramedics during a game.  It may be difficult to see now, but fortunately, all that’s left of the event is a seam down the front where the cut was mended.  G escaped any permanent injury.  He finished the fall season, is currently battling through the midst of the basketball season and he’s anxiously looking forward to spring baseball!  What a blessing!

Well, I was totally looking forward to a vacation and my time off, but I just found myself bored and aching to pick up my camera for a session!!  I’m technically still on break, but thought I’d post this engagement session I shot while on vacation.  They were such a beautiful couple and SO in love!  I absolutely love shooting engagement sessions.  The love and passion the couples share have me on a high for days afterward!  Today I’m sitting bundled up in my home, cringing at the thought of going out in the snow.  However, one look at these photos and remnants of warm weather, salty ocean breezes and young love are enough to put a smile on my face and bring hope that spring will be here soon!

Enjoy the sneak peek!
