Be YOUnique!

I'm a big blog reader. I have a "bookmarks" list a mile long that I filter through pretty much daily and at the very least weekly. I do this for inspiration as well as to keep the creative juices flowing at all times!

As I was reading today, one of my many stops is a friend and fellow Photog, Todd Pellowe. He wrote a great post today about things he would like to see at weddings in 2009. He had some great ideas of things that are out of the norm, yet SO fun and unique! I LOVE this! I LOVE unique! I LOVE different!

Personally, I'm not a very traditional person. I don't like to do things because "that's how they've always been done". Maybe you like traditional, then GREAT! As long as its what YOU want. It's YOUR wedding day and one of the most important days of your life. Make it what you want it to be! Be fun, be creative, be YOU!

McMichael Family

Though I don't normally do family shoots, the McMichaels asked me a good while ago if I would shoot a few pictures of their growing family! After getting rained out 3 times, we finally made it work this past Wednesday! It turned out to be a BEAUTIFUL day and I genuinly had a great time getting to know them better! Chris and Leslie have two young boys, Daniel, and newest member of the family is Hudson!

Here's a few of my favorite images!

Things -a-changin!

Sorry for the laps in blogging lately!! Things have been pretty busy around here! You may have noticed a new look...a little blog face-lift if you will! We're gettin leaner and meaner...simplify and focus, that's the motto! Bare with me, I haven't forgotten!

Coffey/Paul Engagement - Full Post

After our session got rained out on Thursday, Aaron and Sydney met Jenny and I in the park to shoot their engagement pics. It was a beautiful day and I love shooting couples that are so excited and googly-eyed! When we asked Sydney about their story she got the biggest smile on her face that didn't go away the rest of the evening! Aaron and Sydney's families were very close growing up and they were somewhat childhood sweethearts. They went their separate ways until recently, when they were both home from school, the sparks flew! Aaron was quite the stud when planing the proposal too, including hours of planning, video's recorded for her, an elaborate decorative picnic, dancing in the moonlight etc. You can imagine how much Sydney loved telling the story! It was a great time!

We're Back!

Ok, so we've been back for a couple days now, but we hit the ground running! What a great time to be with family! My brother-in-law's wedding was beautiful and in the days following we got to just relax and chill! It was SO nice! It was hard to leave, but it's great to be home. I LOVE Louisville in the Spring!

I took surprisingly few pics while there but did get the camera out a few times! These were taken at Sonic with my new Bro and Sis when Jen and I were hangin out with them one afternoon! I like having younger siblings...its fun!
