Meet Kayla

We photographed Kayla in our Studio so that we could create a signature photograph for her upcoming Quinceanera. Her Sweet 15 ceremony and party afterwards will be in a few weeks and we are looking forard to photographing this wonderful young lady as she becomes an adult.

We took LOTS of photos of Kayla, she brought two dresses with her too! It was very difficult to find favorites because I liked so many!

Here is the 11x14 (matted to 16x20) photograph that will be placed in the signature mat for everyone to sign -- you can see that she liked a good number of photos and we created a composite signature photograph for her rather than the typical one large 11x14 image.

You can view more of the photographs from her photo session here:

Alicia and Michael's Wedding

Here is a sneak peak at Alicia and Michael's wedding. They had awesome weather and overall just a spectacular wedding at the AquaTurf.

Tom had a lot of time with Michael and the groomsmen, which was quite nice. I usually have time with the ladies, but it is a treat that he got a bunch of images of the men being men before the wedding...

I just LOVE this couch! We have photos of Alicia alone and Michael looking at Alicia on this couch -- ooh! aahh!

We are now carrying thses great little 3x3 accordion albums. There are 10 photos in the accordion album with a magnetic closure. They make great gifts and people love to carry them around with them!

Meet Amanda -- a budding photographer! Amanda saw our display and called us up and will be working with us on some of our weddings and portrait shoots. She came to a recent wedding at the Aquaturf and helped Tom while he photographed the groomsmen before the wedding and the bride and groom after the wedding. She was a big help so it was a win-win for both sides!
I love the juxtaposition of these two center images -- she looks intense on the left one and so happy and fun on the right on. I think that we captured many aspects of her personality.

You can view the rest of the photographs that we took of her here:

Anne Marie

We photographed Anne Marie's wonderful kids this weekend, wait 'til you see them -- they are great! We had so much fun with them in the studio! Luke was a doll, doing pretty much everything his big sister did!

But at one point I had both kids in the second camera room with the Westcot constant lights and Tom managed to squeak in a half dozen images of Mom alone.

Check these out!

We will be sharing the images of Ava and Luke later, stay tuned!
