Wow, i sure disappeared there for a while! Trust me, I enjoyed the down time…except it wasn’t actually down time. Changes at the day job, a 3 year old and 1 year old running me ragged (rag-ed? spelling???), and just life in general. You might be like, “duh! what did you expect?!” And to that I say: back off, I’m a slow learner!!
Anyway, I was still taking a few pics here and there with some of my favorite and most loyal clients, so as a welcome back to summer and wedding season and photography in general, here are some of my favorite shots since I left you last October.
Second shooting with Allison Viron Photography and captured this moment. The groom’s dad was too sick to attend the wedding, so friends Facetime’d him in the entire day. Here, he is watching his son and new daughter in law exit the church surrounded by bubbles.
Same wedding. OMG, I love Pittsburgh! Who doesn’t want this shot on their wedding day?!
I love this for two reasons (one selfish). First, if you’re not smiling right now as you look at this, you may be dead inside. Look at that sweet baby’s face and how happy his momma is!! And second, this is the gorgeous Elders Ridge in all it’s glory folks! Yes, this is where I live and what I look at every day.
Tonya always wants to do something sexy and different and I dig it!
I love a family who wants to be creative with their Christmas card! Our dear friends, the Jones’, are that family! And just look at the dog! Cracks me up every time!
I’ve been photographing Hannah since she was a few months old and we sure pick good light! Loving the lens flare and the sweet moment!
Gotta love the honesty of children! Ian didn’t turn five until a few days later, so when I asked him to show me how old he was, well, I guess that one’s on me! This pic makes me giggle every time!
Ok, I haven’t told the client this, but when she proposed this idea, I remember thinking, “Seriously? How ’bout a little less Pinterest, there, Min.” (haha!) But, I do as I’m asked. And glad I did! The example she shared was a kid in a crib filled with balloons. That was shot one. Ok. But then I changed position, crouched down and saw this angle. Maybe my favorite of the year!
Well, that’s all for now, folks. Got a few weddings and portrait sessions coming up soon and I should probably take some family portraits of my own family here soon…since our last photo has me 9 months pregnant with our now 18 month old daughter!!
Have a great summer! It’s good to be back!
