Drew & Ryan's annual session

Super cute annual session with Drew and Ryan at Longwood. I just love photographing kids over and over. We have a great connection and the session becomes more play then a chore.
Thank you weather for giving us an amazingly warm December.




You may not be expecting to find cooking photos and recipes on a photographer's blog :)
but this time of the year when we have free weekends, we tend to enjoy our hobbies. Don't take me wrong, I am looking forward to documenting everyone's happy moments soon, but for now it is horse riding, walking the dogs, knitting, crafting, cooking, and spending time with friends and family - while taking photos of everything :).

If you scroll far enough in posts, you will find a post about my grandmother and her influence. As I lost my other grandmother last week, I couldn't help but laugh about how she hated kitchen stuff for presents at Christmas. She probably would not understand my excitement when I unwrapped my beautiful Empire Red Kitchen Aid this year - something I have been wishing for a long time. I have been putting it to good use. Jen was right when she said I would be using it at least twice a week.

Have a wonderful winter and enjoy everyone around you and the things you love.
Happy 2012

Breakfast with Santa

This time of the year is all about traditions. One of my favorites has been spending time at breakfast with Santa with Scott and Jutta and the girls at Longwood Gardens.
We buy tickets as soon as they go on sale and look forward to delicious food and seeing all the holiday decorations and some modeling.
It is amazing to see the images from all the past years and realize how much the girls have grown.
I am sure we are all looking forward to next year already!



Sue's Family

What a great session with my friend Sue and her family! The weather was rainy and unpleasant all day, but improved for just long enough to give us time for a few images outside. The wet ground and vivid colors looked amazing.
