Mandi and Ryan were married just a few weeks ago on a beautiful, early fall day. The high point had to be Mandi getting ready in her grandmother's home. It was an amazing time capsule, I don't think the selection of vintage decor could be done better if one tried. The rest of the day was relaxed and I had a great time hanging out with the two of them. I get asked frequently if I ever photograph weddings in churches, well yes I do, here you go...enjoy!
Nora and Brian are great clients and friends of mine - I shot their wedding a few years ago, then the extended family, then a maternity session and Dylan's newborn pictures - and now that's he's hit that magic 6 month mark it was time for another session! I love this little guy, between those big cheeks and and giant brown eyes, he's going to be a lady killer. Enjoy some of my favorites!
For the Alvarado family's session, we decided to shoot in their home - my favorite kind of location. We spent a little time inside and outside in the back yard making lots of fun images, full of personality.
This serious little sweetheart is turning one and I had the pleasure of documenting the milestone. There is one image in the gallery above - the close-up of her fingers twisted in the blanket - that is among my favorite images in recent memory. It's one of those things that any parent can understand - this is her special blanket and she loves to poke her fingers through the holes and hold on tight. I feel that, combined with her and her bottle in the background, this image completely tells the story of this time in her life. It's an image that will only become more special as she grows.
