My First Wedding: Sneak Peek

One of my good friends asked me to shoot her daughter's wedding. Although I was a little nervous about accepting, I knew it would have to happen eventually (me shooting a wedding), and I felt confident enough in my experience to do it. The couple were married at the Birmingham Alabama Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was a gorgeous overcast day and though it threatened to rain (and did as soon as we were done shooting), the wedding turned out wonderfully. Here is a sneak peek at some of my favorites so far.

A Family in Winter: Family Portrait Session

Before spring is entirely upon us, I better post these gorgeous family photos I did when the weather was (for us in Geogira, at least) wintery. This couple's little boy is about the same age as my son, so I knew what would make him smile: running, exploring, and the Thomas the Tank Engine "Roll Call" song . . . "There's two; there's four; there's six; there's eight. Shunting coal and hauling freight . . ." That resulted in my favorite picture (fifth one down), so I don't mind that I looked a little silly singing and shooting. My other faves are the the bird's eye couple shots (which the mom used to surprise her hubby on Valentine's). I love those pictures because they're beautiful, but also because I climbed up on top of a dumpster so I have a good perspective. So fun!

I love taking a series of photos that clients could put in a frame like the example below. Too precious!

Peter's Pavement Pounders

I've been busy designing and setting up a website for our son and our CF walk coming up. We did the walk last year, but this year, we are trying to pull together a big team (across the nation!) of people pounding the pavement to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I'm so pumped about our site and the walk. Even our team name--Peter's Pavement Pounders--makes me excited! Click on over!
