coming to your city!!!! Well, eventually we hope to come to everyone’s city but for right now, we’re just starting with 3! Today we’re introducing COACHING HUDDLES!!! We couldn’t be more excited about this! For months now, Michael and I have been dreaming about the idea of COACHING HUDDLES. The goal of a Coaching Huddle is to provide a coaching opportunity for photographers a little closer to home as well as form a community (Or “Huddle” if you will) in their area. Huddles consist of 5-6 photographers who will join Katelyn for 8 hours of mentoring, problem solving and goal setting.
may just be one of my most favorite senior shoots to date! Beautiful girl, beautiful light and some fun locations and outfits made for a GREAT shoot on Monday! Kelsey is just the sweetest girl you’ll ever meet. I remember thinking that as soon as I met her at youth group a couple of years ago. Her smile and her personality can make anyone love her instantly!! I have been looking forward to her portraits because I knew they would be a blast! … And they were! I can’t wait to share my favorites and let you see some gorgeous portraits of this amazing girl!
knew this was coming!! Of course Bokeh Boy has a little halloween costume!! We wouldn’t miss an opportunity to dress him up! This year he’s our little “Rufferee”! We tried to get him to play with a real football but he’s just too tiny! Bokeh boy has no idea why he’s dressed like this but believe it or not, he actually likes it! He never fights us when we put it on and he stares at it when we take it off! haha I hope everyone has a fun, safe and spooky night tonight! Happy Halloween!!
met them at Gravelly Point, a park outside of DC right next to the airport! This was a perfect location for them because they spend many summer afternoons at this place on the water. Michael and I headed up to meet Adam and Sarah last Friday and we loved getting to know these two! Michael doesn’t always get to accompany me on engagement shoots but when he does, it’s a lot of fun. I love that Michael had a chance to meet yet another amazing 2014 couple!! Adam and Sarah are awesome. Their smiles and their joy is so evident in their images and if they were this happy on their
brothers stepped up to the microphone at reception and explained that even though they were young when Rosie came into Jeff’s life, they remembered seeing him change… and it was a good change. Rosie and Jeff started dating in high school… and while some say high school is too early to seriously date someone, I think these two would disagree. There are only a few people in the world that are lucky enough to meet their soulmate in high school and Jeff and Rosie are one of those couples!! Their love has been growing for one another for so many years! They fell in love as teenagers, went to college together and then moved to NY for grad school and now, as of Sunday afternoon, they are officially Mr. and Mrs.!!! I loved watching them say their vows and exchange rings! After each part of the ceremony, they would smile and squeee one another’s hands because they knew they were closer and closer to being husband and wife!!
