:: The BOSS!!! ::

Wow! This was my first Bruce Springsteen concert and I have to say it was the BEST concert I’ve EVER been to. Yes, you read that correctly. The Boss ROCKS! The show lasted just short of 3 hours – no breaks. Bruce’s energy and showmanship are incredible. Me and Paul were down on the floor with the hardcore fans about 15 yards from the stage. The show was a sell out even upper level seats BEHIND the stage. The crowd was on their feet the entire time. They say Springsteen shows are like a revival, a spiritual experience. It’s true! Best song moments for me were “Out in the Street”, “Because the Night”, “10th Ave. Freeze Out” and the sparingly played on tour “Rosalita.” I’m a Bruce convert now.

:: Batman + doll = two adorable children! ::

I love photographing children and babies with the things that are dearest to them. Things they love to do and that represent who they are. So parents, you're more than welcome to bring items that you know will make your photographs special to you, and your children when they grow up.

Loved working with these two siblings! I love their hair, their smile, their serious looks, their playfulness, their eyes, what more can I say? Mua!

Mom bought a humongous canvas from this image. Can't wait to see it when it arrives! I will definitely post an image of the canvas itself :-)

Not that I'm making fun of my gender but this video is pretty funny! I would never do those things of course!

:: little guy ::

I'm going back to some recent sessions I didn’t blog about that deserve the spotlight nonetheless

I LOVE photographing this little guy! This is the second year I'm fortunate to capture his candid smiles and captivating looks. He moved so fast during the session that mom and I had to constantly chase him around. What a great way to get your cardio work for the day :-)

:: sleeping baby ::

I always consider myself lucky when the newborns I photograph go into a deep sleep. Most of the time, it requires lots of patience and time but the end results are worth it. I love the sweet look, the smiles and the peacefulness we can capture when newborns are asleep. Something very hard to do as they get older. Enjoy!

:: MIA ::

Ya'll have been there: moments that leave you frenzied and frayed, running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Well, that's how I feel right now ... the reason why I've been MIA from my blog. I have TONS of sessions to blog about but haven't had a chance to due to my busy schedule. I've been busy editing sessions, ordering photos, making Holiday cards, delivering photos and more. I'm hoping to be back to my regular programming next week. I hope you're having a wonderful Holiday season!

This is me right now :o)

:: twins + girl ::

How adorable are they? This is the third year that I get to photograph these gorgeous children. I love to see them grow and I'm proud to be the photographer that captures some of the wonderful changes that come with childhood.

The other day I was thinking that I'm like a grandmother to all of the children & babies I get to photograph. I play & have fun with them for a little while, then I give them back to mom & dad once they're tired and hungry. Isn't my job wonderful? :o)
