Month: June, 2010
keosha is an award-winning teacher, and when we met up, i was so excited to capture the hold-your-breath-romance between her and hubby (one year this month!) and the adorable little bundle of energy that is their daughter.
the park you guys introduced me to was GORGEOUS! not sure i can ever find my way back there, but if i can it’ll sure be worth it.
keosha, i am a huge fan, girl! you are stunningly beautiful and your lil’ girl is taking after you. you guys have the sweetest spirits, and your little girl is yummy. thank you for a wonderful evening! anna and i had a fantastic time and giggled our buns off!
thank you guys for being so much fun! i can’t wait to see your cover feature. talk to you soon!
ed and eva are well-traveled – they live in taiwan and have spent time in places like tel aviv and egypt this year in travel for work and play. they came “home” (for ed) to get married, and it was our breathtaking whirlwind of fun to spend the week with them and their family and friends. you two are gorgeous, and you and your “people” are lovely. thank you for bringing us along, and for allowing us the privelege to capture your wedding day. we can’t wait to share those images, but for now, your morning of romance…
(funny lil’ story – a security guard from the park and asked us if everyone was going to be keeping their clothes on for this session… um, yes, we hope so… )
you made us wanna kiss.
eva, you are stunning and your groom is handsome and kind. thank you, thank you for wandering with us!
when i pulled in to the home of the so-sweet c. family lila-whose-eyes-sparkle was standing at the door. “angela’s here!!!” she bubbled. happy me! i just adore this family and their comfy, well-dressed little bungalow. i guess having spent a few hours in it at the newborn session for mr. aidan, i feel pretty comfy there. it doesn’t hurt that aaron and melissa are so gracious!
anywho, i arrived to deliver birth announcements and two of the most beautiful gallery-wrapped canvas prints ever (oh, how i secretly wished they’d hate them and i’d have to offer to keep them, silly me ). i had a blast watching aaron wield the laser-level and reading board books with miss lila.
sometimes it’s hard to express to friends and clients just how striking a color-corrected, professionally-printed canvas wall art piece is in your home. sometimes it’s hard to illustrate to someone just how small the “8×10″ we all remember from ordering school pictures, really is on a wall. so to give perspective and inspire, i made it my goal to get better at sharing images clients have placed in their own homes.
these images are 20×24 gallery-wrapped canvas. the bookshelf and table below are child-sized (well, look at my beautiful little friend next to them. )
my favorite memory will be of lila gasping, “sparkly eyes!” when she saw herself on canvas. may this little girl always see just how beautiful she is when she looks at the art her parents have chosen to grace their home… the art of their family’s legacy.
thank you, melissa and aaron – i am a blessed girl! you guys are awesome.
i pretty much adored john and shannon from the minute she called to talk to us about her wedding… she’d been engaged for about three minutes, i think, and she wanted to make sure of details like snagging us to spend the day with them (oh, how cool do we feel?!!)… and when we met she was just as adorable as she sounded, and john, well, he’s yummy. (i mean that in the sense of a happily married woman who is the mom of sons and is easily won over by a sweet smile and twinkly eyes ). he proposed by pulling out a custom designed skim board on a cold and grumpy night, and he’s been romancing her ever since.
and this is right after he said, “i’m gonna do my serious face.” and that is how the night went.
this one takes my breath away…
these are just a few to “tide you over.” we can’t wait to spend the day with you guys again!!
big hugs, brian sr., angela, and brian jr. (thanks for all your hard work, buddy! you rock!)
love that she had cool beachy “props.” love that the boys are giggly and speedy and camera-shy. love that dad offered to be part of more “just the two of us” photos… and rolled in the waves with his beautiful bride. love that we giggled till our sides hurt and they hung in for still more. thank you so much tifnie and ALL the guys, for a wonderful evening. thank you, sweet and wonderful grandma, for working as hard as we did (and thank you to two of MY boys for working so hard!). you guys are the best!
tifnie stole my momma’s heart with her total “let them be kids” attitude toward the session (and dad, you did, too!)… it’s so hard to let go and live in the moment when you’ve planned clothes and fun goodies, but it gave us the precious gift of capturing true family-joy… sigh…
please leave your thoughts and sweetness in the comments section.
hugs! –angela (and two of MY boys…)
