Ahhhh, Weddings!

I had the pleasure of photographing a former student (the groom) & his bride a few weeks ago. His best man was also a former student. I love being able to stay in touch with so many of the students I've taught as they become adults with families of their own. I've even had the pleasure of being made the Godmother of a former student's baby! That baby is now nearly 8 years old already! Enjoy the images & remember to leave a comment so I know you stopped by.

Thanks for the support my friends!

 I love capturing the first moment the groom sees his bride!

I love the fact that the bride & groom's dads are both in a band together. They played at the wedding!

Focus 52: Morning Moments

Having shot but not posted for the last two weeks in the Focus 52 project I am determined not to miss this one! I caught these morning moments over a few days this last week. One day was my son's birthday.

A Broadway Revue

This blog is going to be short & sweet. My students performed a couple weeks ago with two wonderful actors from Broadway, as mentioned in the previous blog. After a couple days of hard work & rehearsals Chuck Wagner & Andrea Rivette generously shared the stage with several of my high school students. The opportunities this provides, the experience, & ego boost it gives to my students is priceless, but what I treasure the most is the wonderful friendships I've acquired from these master class workshops. Chuck has been a friend for a couple decades, first meeting at work at The Alley Theatre on Jekyll & Hyde when it was still in early stages of development, but it was through Chuck, & only recently (2 years ago), that I met Andrea. What a gem she is! Meeting new people with whom I can instantly hit it off at my age is always fun and extra special. I have Chuck to thank for that. These are shots from the show, rehearsals, and whatever else I decide to throw in. Take a look & imagine the possibilities for these aspiring young actors as they get the thrill of singing with two Broadway stars!

I had to add these...we went out to eat one night at the Steamboat Steakhouse & for dessert we got a Cannon Ball. It's vanilla Blue Bell ice cream covered in Oreo cookie crumbs with fudge poured over it. Later in the week I made one at home & it was a hit! YUMMY!!!!! Really easy to make too!
