I’m finally taking some time to introduce the little guy who has been my muse over the past four months. He has many nicknames ranging from Angel Baby to Crab Cake, but his blog name will be Little B. I think it took me so long to post photos of him on my blog because there are always more photos that I want to create. In fact, I just processed and retouched two more photos before sitting down to write this post. I guess you could say he’s my special on-going photo project that will last as long as he lets me. So here are some of my very favorites starting somewhere around two weeks old.
I know someday he’ll really dislike this photo below, but I hope he’ll eventually get a laugh out of it.
And here he is for his dedication with his Daddy!
Couldn’t resist a photo with the Miller jersey!
I was so excited that he could sit up in this chair—it’s a family heirloom. And I can’t help but brag because he is looking pretty dapper for his Christmas portrait.
I mentioned that he’s my muse for photos, but he’s also inspired me to get in touch with my crafty side. So in addition to snapping his photo, I’ve been sewing like a mad woman and made him this bomber jacket and aviator hat. He wasn’t too crazy about sitting in the chair so I didn’t push it by waiting for him to smile. Plus, I think I’ll like seeing his melancholy face some day when I’m looking back. I know most people like to see their baby smiling in photos, but I want to remember all of his precious faces.
I love finding things that I can sit him in or use to prop him up. And this suitcase from my mom and throw blanket from my sister were a perfect match.
That’s it for now. I’ll be sure to share more as we go. But for the moment, I think I’d just like to cuddle him.
Sarah and Mike were married one month ago today in a beautiful ceremony at St. Joan of Arc Church in Pittsburgh’s South Hills. This is my last wedding to photograph this season and I can’t think of a nicer one to wrap up 2012. A big thanks to Alex and Michelle who started at Sarah’s parents’ home where she and her bridesmaids were getting ready. They did an awesome job documenting everything before I met up with them at the church. I really like the images of Sarah’s dog in a dress and her flower girls playing dress up in heels.
Kristin and Nate were married one month ago today in a beautiful ceremony at St. Mary’s Parish in the South Hills with a Tiffany’s themed wedding reception at the Hilton Garden Inn/Southpointe. I’d like to thank Alex Jones and Rebecca Chiappelli for their wonderful job covering Kristin and Nate’s wedding while I was recovering from the birth of our newborn earlier that week. They started with Kristin at her parent’s home for some getting ready photos of the beautiful bride.
Lauren and Dan said “I do” on a gorgeous fall day in September at the chapel at Beulah Presbyterian Church with a reception that followed at the lovely Longue Vue Club. Their wedding just gushed with elegance from the details to their graceful choreography during the first dance. And I love the peacock feathers that they incorporated all throughout their day, from the boutonnieres to the table place cards. Before I get carried away with spilling the details, here are some images of Lauren getting ready. I’d like to thank Alex Jones and Sean Means for capturing these, as they covered the beginning and end of the day without me while I was on “light duty” in my last month of pregnancy.
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted anything because I’ve been busy getting ready for the arrival of our first son, so I’m glad to get back into the blogging groove and share Amy and Dan’s beautiful wedding from August. I guess you could say I have some blogging to get caught up on before my due date in October (and I’ll be photographing two weddings and an engagement session to boot)! The good news is, I’m staying on top of all of my client deadlines as that’s a really important part of my business philosophy. Anyway, this sunny August wedding had the most perfect weather. After the stretch of a long heat wave, Amy and Dan figured their day would be a hot one, but to everyone’s surprise the rainy Friday before the wedding cooled things off quite nicely. We started with Amy at her parent’s home, not far from Bethlehem Lutheran Church.
