Every day, my life is consumed by my two greatest passions:  Family and Photography.  I truly believe that I have the best job in the world.  Being a mother, allows me to view the world differently.  You learn to cherish those small moments in a child’s life that are so EXCITING to experience, yet it gives me the greatest feeling to be able to capture those moments for myself and for the families around me.

Being a wife, reminds me of all the details you have to think of to plan a wedding.  All those emotions and how the smallest moments can make a difference on one of the most important days of your life.  Being able to be a part of your day, capturing those moments that you may not even realize are happening…is what my love for photography is all about.  A playful moment like the flowergirl playing Tag-You’re-It!, the bride and groom sharing a secret look, to the tear that may run down the cheek of the couples’ parents.  THOSE are the moments that you will look back on for the rest of your life and smile to yourself because you will be able to relive that loving feeling you felt on that exact day.

Photography is a passion of mine.  Pieces of art that I cannot wait to pass on to you.  🙂

This morning, I went to a boudoir workshop and wow, did we have a BLAST!  Shannon and Amanda were PHENOMENAL to work with! I’ve photographed a few boudoir sessions and I have to say that besides weddings, they are definitely my fave to do. I cannot wait to do more. 😉

Yes, I know there are a TON but I couldn’t help but post my faves…bare with me. haha

Gotta love the shoes….

Last year, I started the tradition of posting my top favorite client images of the year. I think it’s fun to reminisce and also, to see how my photography grows with each passing year.

I was able to narrow it down to 10 images last year but this year…it was a LOT tougher. So I narrowed it down to my top 20. I knew this year was SUPER busy but after going thru all of my sessions and weddings, I realized HOW busy it was. And for that…I truly am thankful to have such fantastic clients, friends and to share what I love to do as a profession.

I really had a hard time even narrowing it down to 20 but I tried to remember each time I was editing each session or wedding when that 1 or 2 images really jumped out at me; and that is how I chose. So even if you aren’t on this list, please know that I cherish each and every one of you, your family and the moments I captured for you to always remember. 🙂

Here are my top 20 images of 2009:

Last night, I attended a Holiday Party for a photography group that I belong to and we had the pleasure of working with Tyson, a new model from the MM site. He was awesome to work with!  Hopefully we’ll all work with him again for the bodypainting class coming up in Jan and in future workshops.

I like the way these turned out but I’d love to get him out of the studio and do an on-location session. These are a little “Senior Portrait” looking. Which isn’t a bad thing but ya know what I’m saying. haha

Here are a few from last night:

So I went to a recent photography class to learn a little more about OCF. A local photog group holds seminars, classes….it’s just a lot of fun connecting with local photographers of all levels. For this class, they had 3 models to assist. One was a daughter of a photographer friend, who was a natural in front of the camera. The other one is a 19 yr old who is absolutely stunning! Couldn’t believe she was new at modeling because she was very easy to work with and you can tell the camera loves her 😉 And lastly, was Bill. I couldn’t even tell you how much we all loved Bill. He was fabulous to work with, very funny…and I loved hearing his stories that he created while we photographed to “create” the mood.

And yes…the rum in the photos is real and he was drinking. HAHAHA He was too funny….

Here are a BUNCH of my faves from the class…

So yesterday, a bunch of photographers came together for a TTD (Trash the Dress) session at a farm in Exeter, RI.  Three models from ModelMayhem.com (Two RI locals and one from MA) came down to work with us and boy, did we have a blast!  It was just a fun time, to try some new things, testing studio lights outside and just overall…having fun!  Jose was such a good sport in letting us crazy photogs try out our ideas. HAHA, thank you, Jose, Katy and Jo-Jo!  You all were WONDERFUL to work with!

So a couple of days ago, I was contacted by a model asking if I would be interested in trading services.  My time for their time, basically.  They needed images for their portfolio for the makeup artist and hair stylist (who was also one of the models). 

They mostly were looking to add to their wedding makeup and hair styles (some elegant, some edgy), so obviously most of the images were to show those off.  I’d love to work with the models again, the two of them were stunning and great to work with!  Their friends were fantastic as well!  Here are a bunch of my faves:
