Alison & Aaron

July 20, 2009

Alison came down to Naples visit her cousins here a few years ago. She joined us for Ultimate Frisbee and came to dinner right after. I had a wonderful time getting to know her during her visits, so I was thrilled when she married a local friend, Aaron. We all attend the same Bible Study on Sunday nights, and it is always wonderful to catch up with them. They volunteered to do a model shoot with us one night – we had such an awesome time at the Corkscrew Swamp!  I am looking forward to getting together with them often.

Isn’t Alison Beautiful?

We met up with Allison & Aaron to practice a few techniques I learned at a workshop.  We had a really great time romping through Corkscrew swamp!  I am super-excited about posting these, but our interent is going too slow, so I’ll just post one for now:

Peterson Family

We had such a wonderful time with the Peterson family when we met them at Clam pass in early April. I would say more, but these pictures speak for themselves!























Sarah & Dane – Part 1

March 27, 2009

We met Sarah and Dane during Ultimate Frisbee last August. Little did we know just how much fun they were to hang out with. They helped us with our photography at the Senior Christmas Party at church. Then we took them to Koreshan State Park for a fun and eventful portrait session. We had SO much fun we went to the fair with them two days later (Part 2 coming next week!). They have since moved back to New York, and we miss them dearly.



























Sarah and Rachel: the shoot

February 25, 2009

I had the pleasure of capturing sisters Sarah and Rachel a few weeks ago. I posted just two shots the other day. I wanted to add a few today. Sarah and Rachel are two really amazing people and I was so delighted to spend the afternoon with them.  I also had the pleasure of working with Heidi von Korff – she has an excellent eye and helped me with poses. The slightest changes make the biggest differences!






Sarah and Dane: Teaser

February 23, 2009

We got to hang out with Sarah and Dane just one week before they moved back to New York. We even got to hang out with them one night at the county fair.  It was very sad to see them go, but we had an absolute BLAST with them while they were here. I just had to post a few photos before I finish editing all of them.




Gavin’s First Birthday!!!

November 12, 2008

Cramer (as he is known around these parts) was with Matt as groomsmen in Ethan and Laura’s wedding last year.  We found out during our drive to the rehearsal dinner that Denise was pregnant!  And over a year later they asked me to document their little one’s first birthday, which was SUCH a treat.  Gavin is a real cutie and a little camera shy. Which made it a challenging and fun birthday to document. Don’t you think he looks cute in that little Happy Birthday hat? Aren’t you glad you don’t have to wear those anymore?







Gavin’s Friend!




Erin's Having a Girl!

April 28, 2008

I had the wonderful opportunity to do maternity shots for Erin as a surprise for her husband while he was away watching the Master’s Tournament in Augusta.  Erin was so much fun to work with and she was really upbeat despite fighting a cold.  I am also blessed with the opportunity to photography Brynlee Ann as soon as she is born.  I can’t wait!  Here are a few of our favorites from the photoshoot.
