Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!!

My New Year's resolution is to be a better blogger...heck, I can't get much worse :)

I have decided to end the year with a bang and let you in on a few photos from a fabulous wedding back in November. Special thanks to Neysa for being my right hand woman and patiently waiting for me to post this wedding. Check out her blog fro more of the guy photos.

Congratulations to Jeni and Brian. The 5k was a blast, the wedding was beautiful, the reception was a true party. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness, you are truly a joy to work with.

My kind of woman...Jeni and her maid of honor ran a 5k the morning of the wedding. I would have been right in there with them, but I am not coordinated enough to run and take pictures with a giant camera.

Fabulous shoes with a Cincinnati background

While I was with the girls, Neysa got to hang with the guys. I'm told (by the groom) she earned her money.

Brian surprised her with some bling.

Glorious outdoor light!

A first dance...

A dance with dad...

A dance with mom...

and cake smashing!

I love newborn sessions! Now that my kids are getting big, these sessions are the way I get my "baby fix". And before you ask, no, I am not having any more kids of my own. I am perfectly content to photograph and hold the babies and then not have to get up with them in the middle of the night :).

Here are a few of my favorites of 4 day old Mr. A. Enjoy - he is such a cutie.

I have been photographing this family for a few years now, and am always happy with our sessions. Repeat clients are always a joy. It is also a bonus that I went to grad school with one of them (mom with short dark hair) and we get to catch up on our lives.

Typically our annual photo session co-insides with the coldest day of the year. So, they planned sweaters in preparation. Of was 80 degrees when I shot these (lucky me got to sport shorts and a tank top :)). They were a blast as always and grandma and grandpa even got join in on the fun this time.

The kids were bribed with jelly beans for each picture. So, when it was the adults turn, the kids had a blast taunting the adults with the jelly beans.

Brooke and Josh-

Brooke and Josh-

Before I begin with this wedding, let me start with some blog notes....I've been getting the third degree for not updating my blog more often (ahem...Neysa, Karen, Kevin). I guess I deserve it because I couldn't remember my password to log in to update the blog. Oops. My lack of updating is not because I have not been taking pictures. On the contrary, I have been so busy I'm feeling overwhelmed. Not to worry - even when I can't breath, I love this work and can't imagine anything better to be drowning in. Now for some photos.

I photographed this backyard wedding in early October. It was a nice family affair, and was a bonus that the bride actually is family (my cousin's daughter). A super huge thank you to Kevin for second shooting with me.

I started the day with the girls. While Brooke had her make-up done, all the girls sat on the bed to watch.

A ring detail.

Her make-up was fabulous!

While I was with the girls, Kevin got to hang out with the guys. The photo below of the groom and of the guys sorta sums up Kevin's experience with the guys.

Mom and Matron-of-Honor helping with the dress.

I love the way they were looking at each other.

A first dance.

Eventually everyone gets used to my crazy stunts to get a photo. Here I was laying on the ground (in the middle of the driveway) telling everyone to gather round.

If you don't smash cake in your bride's face, you get a kiss :)

The night topped out with some crazy dancing.

Thanks you to Brooke and Josh for letting me share your day. I had a fabulous time and I wish you a lifetime of happiness.

Thank you again to Kevin for keeping me on track and snagging some fabulous photos!
