i heat faces; wedding post

This week's entry from "i heart faces" is wedding bells. Here is one of my favorites that captures true expression from one of my brides last year. Kristin's wonderful husband Barry was making some fun crack and this was her wonderful response. To view the entire blog post, click here to see more from their March wedding!

I love faces entry: just for fun

Today while checking out all my favorite blog sites, I came across this super fun web-site I heart faces (open to all photographers in all walks) that displays just that! Every week there are new judges and new themes. This week there are 2 different themes; a wedding faces photo, and a "just for fun" photo. Below is my just for fun entry.

My oldest, Lydia 4, absolutely hates ( ok really dreads, is disgusted, repulsed, need I say more...) by having her hair done. One winter day in the midst of boredom I suggested we make her look like a bride (one of her favorite things to do right now). I pulled out the hot rollers and started at it. This is the expression that I got about half way through, not because the rollers were too hot, but because she was done with having her hair done. I had to send it to my hubbie at work. We both got such a kick out of it. This is just our Lydia!

June 19th and 20th Sneak Peeks

I'll admit, I have been terrible at blogging this past week. Here are the some sneak peeks from the 2 weddings that I shot last weekend. It was a whirlwind, the 19th I headed down to Rochester to do a late night wedding, and then back up the the Cities later that evening only to start with a wedding at 10 the next day! Thankfully I had 2 amazing couples to work with and beautiful weather to shoot in, more to come later this week before we head out on vacation!!

Ben- 6 months

Yikes! Where has time gone?! My little guy just hit 6 months about 2 weeks ago and I seriously can't believe how fast it has gone. This guy is so easy and laid back (probably like most 3rd borns). Rarely cries and is SO happy. Love the chubby cheeks and thighs. Neither of the girls had those rolls so I have to say I am so thankful to be squeezing them! Yesterday we all headed outside despite the cloudy skies and just used our wonderful old garage as a backdrop.Love the expressions here, so much like his dad.We headed to the park and my 2 year old, Elise was just dying to be photographed, so here she is showing me her tricks on the swing.

Web-site down

Unfortunately through a wonderful technology glitch (we all love computers!) my web-site is down and malfunctioning. I am in the process of working with my site manager and the company that I am creating a new web-site with, so please e-mail me directly if you have questions. Stay on the watch for the new site, and posted here for more photos this week on the blog!

Nora- 18 months

Angie was one of my college roommates and lives only a city away from us! I met up with Ang, her wonderful husband, Max, and their 18 month old Nora last week. We had a great time exploring Theo Wirth Parkway and eventually ended up at a beach and playground with some great "props". Believe it or not, this beautiful, smiley, little girl gave us a run for our time! We had a few melt downs, only to be followed by bursts of laughter. I have to say I am not in the least bit surprised. My girls are the same way, so I just had the camera ready, aimed, and fired when those bright smiles came. Thankfully there were plenty!
