blue pink white yellow

Forget me knots and apple blossoms are some of my favorite splashes of color in the spring. I was photographing for a couple of hours last Saturday and I wanted to find an apple tree that was pink, not white. I found one! There was even a Bee who stopped by for a photo.

Both of these flowers were located in swamps...not sure what kind they are but I like the white ones with the fuzzy creepy arms.

Almost 7 months

R will be seven months in a little over a week, boy how time flies. These were taken at my parents house last night. He loves to be outside eating grass or flowers.

Dad wanted one of R on the snowmobile. (Nope it's not put away yet...still waiting for the last snow!)
A boy and his dog. R loves his dog Toby but Toby is not so sure about letting R attack him. He ran away right after this photo.

Sneak Peek

This wedding was very special for me. K is a cousin on my fathers side and J is a 1st cousin on my mothers side and I introduced them last July. J and K had never met each other before July and when K, K, and I were on our way back from Maine we stopped at my aunts for the weekend. I wanted K to have someone to hang out with so I called J. The two hit it off right away! J even stayed until midnight...that's pushing it for him when he had to work at 6am. They talked for a while then started dating. J made many 500 mile trips to visit K.
Balloons YEA!
Mine and J's grandpa has an old Model A and J's parents had photos with one just like it when they were married so it was so much fun to have the car as a "prop" for J and K. All J needs in this photo is a cigar and a tommy gun...we had a gun but didn't want to take it out in a state park.

I love this suitcase!

Perfect Start

T and J's wedding was the perfect start to this years weddings. It was at a park on the "big lake" There were about 20 people attending the ceremony and the reception was at a local restaurant. I had talked to T in the morning because we still weren't sure if the wedding was going to be outside or at a church. The wedding was at 4 and at 2:45 T decided that she didn't care if it was cold and windy she wanted to get married outside. Once we arrived at the park there was just a slight breeze and it was sunny! She made a great decision!We did some photos on the beach and then headed up into the woods for a few more.

Thank you T and J for letting me be a part of your special day! I was happy everything worked out and I was able to photograph your wedding!

These hats are props I have from B, stop by her shop on Etsy. (jitterbeans) I love when babies sleep through the entire session. T was awake for most of it but we were able to sneak a few photos with different hats on while he dozed off for a bit. This is one of her newest hats. I love it!

Oh to be young again

My friend H babysits for I and C. She asked if I would do some photos for their mother for mothers day and I was happy to have some younger models! I loved going down the slide time after time. She would come and look at the photo I took as soon as she got to the bottom. The energy of a two year old is so awesome! C loved climbing on the logs, she tried so hard to keep up with I!
Getting the two of them to sit together and look in the same direction...this was the best one I think I got.
Having I say cheese was not getting a smile with her beautiful dimples so we switched it up to ROAR! That got her to show her sweet smile.
C sat so nice for her photo while I ran around trying to distract her.

Great way to spend an afternoon.

Sunday I think I photographed my last senior for the class of 2010...but then again maybe not. B brought along two of her sisters and we headed to a local river and then to the "big lake." Oh ya, we did some indoor shots too.
There were tons of people at the beach. In this photo there was a man fishing behind her...he's not there now.
I've started using my reflector more. It gives a more natural light than just a flash.
