It was truly a pleasure to take these photos today. Catherine and Jill have been close friends for like six years and have shared and experienced so much together. But nothing is more special than two friends being pregnant and having babies at the same time. Cath and I know that Jill is going to be the most amazing mommy and Brian, a phenomenal dad. Taylor is precious and we wish their family love and happiness forever. Enjoy every minute guys!!
One of Cath’s best friends, has a friend who is an editor at FitPregnancy. An email was sent out asking for shots of pregnant bellies of all shapes and sizes! And that email luckily came to us. Of course I had like hundreds. So we submitted one and it got printed in the February/March issue. Way in the back, last page, dead center. I managed to get little G in the photo as well.
And here is the shot.
Since the beginning of my photographic career, I have been searching for unique business cards. I can’t stand poorly designed logos and business stationary. I am so lucky to have found what, I think, is the coolest business cards around. Letterpress. For those of you not familiar with letterpress stationary, it is a very heavy paper stock with the printing debossed into the paper, then inked. I found a company that has done many cards for photographers. Studio Z in California. Zida was an absolute pleasure to do business with and really helped with the final layout and design of the card. For all of you that really want a rare style invitation, I strongly recommend something letterpress. Seriously, you will never see anything like it. Don’t believe me stop by and pick up one of my new cards!!
When it came to photographing it, I certainly could not just take a simple picture! I had to do something out of the ordinary. The fact that the cards are so thick made them perfect materials to build a house of cards!
After we were done, it was more fun to take it down! : )
I thought it would be really cool for everyone to see just how much goes into each photo we create. If we already shot your wedding then you know how we climb just about anything in our way to get the shot! So I made this sideshow; then after making it, I realize that maybe nobody cares to see how much fun and energy we put into each job? But it took me over an hour, so I’m showing it anyway!!
The bonus to all of this is you will get to see Ronnie’s hair go through many, many stages. How exciting! Its a little unfair actually, that he gets to have so many hair styles. However, that’s for another time involving me and a therapist!
Oh and why is Ronnie riding a duck and giving a lion pounds? I have no idea. : )
On with the show!
Welcome to the new and improved blog. This new version takes off where the previous one left off.
If you want to see last years blog please click here.
The improvements include a cleaner easier to read page, private hosting (not really anything you will notice), easily viewed comments and the best of all I can play sideshows set to music, like the one below. woo hoo.
I can’t think of a better way to kick of the new blog, in a new year, than with a slide show recapping all my couples from 2008! This is by no means a “best of”. That would be impossible to compile. With over 200,000 images captured last year, I would hate to have to narrow that down to 66. This is simply a quick recap of all the wonderful people that invited my crew and me to their weddings. Besides, each wedding has way more than one image that I consider to be the best. Hell, if I wanted to get crazy, I could have categories and have Dave edit the show! That would be awesome. But not this year. For now, enjoy this slide show. I will soon do another one recapping all the fun Ronnie, Jason, Joe and I had this year. (that’s coming very soon) Happy New Year!
