A Formal Wedding with A Costume Celebration

Filed under: Photo Sessions, Photography — Tags: , , — candid reflections @ 9:36 am

On Saturday, Ironman and I photographed a candle lit wedding, with the help of the best assistant I could ask for, my sister Suzy.  Then we had fun snapping shots of all sorts of characters during the reception, as the couple encouraged their guests to change into costume to help them celebrate.

The groom slipped into “something a little more comfortable” for the reception.

Storytime Family Photo Shoot, with a cookie to go…

Filed under: Photo Sessions — Tags: , — candid reflections @ 8:33 pm

My wonderful “assistant for the day” Katy and I had a photo shoot with the most adorable family last week.  We went for a walk, read books, and ate the most delicious chocolate chip cookies EVER!  This family was such a pleasure to photograph, I could have shot them all afternoon… but then… they got the cookies out.   A girl just can’t hold her camera and savor her chocolate chip cookie at the same time!

She Writes

Filed under: Photo Sessions — candid reflections @ 11:30 am

She’s amazing.  She writes historical fiction and she’s brilliant.  She speaks with conviction.  She’s Ironman’s cousin.  She lives clear across the continent, and when we get to spend time together, it’s never enough!

She’s working toward getting her books published so we thought it would be fun to do a professional photo shoot while she was in town.  Here are a few random ones of several that I took.  She’s photogenic; she’s got a lot to choose from!

A Fun Gift Idea

Filed under: Photo Sessions, Photography — candid reflections @ 6:28 am

I recently had someone request a gift certificate for a newborn photo session to give as a baby shower gift.  I had a lot of fun designing one for her:

gc

                                                                                                                                                 ~ B A C K ~

bgc

and I know that I’ll have even more fun honoring it, because taking pictures of newborn babies is one of my favorite things to do!

I thought that the gift certificate was such a fun idea that I’m offering them up as an option to anyone that may want to give them as Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, anniversary gifts, babyshower gifts, etc.   Check out my website www.candidreflections.net to see prices for photo sessions, email me if you’re interested, and I’d be happy to personalize a gift certificate for you!

La Famille Photo Session

Filed under: Photo Sessions — Tags: , , , — candid reflections @ 7:15 am

I mistakingly thought that the season’s change and cooling weather drawing us indoors and back to our studies would actually allow our schedules to subside from all of the activity that summer provided.  Ha!  Autumn has a basketful of it’s own demands!   most of which I’m quite happy to oblige. 😉    To those who check in here:  I treasure the thought of you stopping by and I’m sorry to have greeted you with the same boring post all month!  We’ve been up to lots of  fun things that I’m excited to get back to posting about.

We’ll start things off with a sneak peek at a recent photo session with the beautiful “T” family.  Thanks for a fun afternoon guys!  Ohhh, and while you’re off on vacation, exploring the beauty of France… you must find some time to climb into a boat and then ask someone to snap a shot of the two of you smooching as you float past the Pont Neuf for me, will ya?  Now that would make a pretty canvas to hang on your wall, would it not?!!

All eyes are on Ben, and do the looks on their parent’s faces not tug at your heart???

Ben and Brittany wrote and read their own vows to eachother, very heart-warming.

Brittany’s sister and brother-in-law made the wedding cake (if I’m not mistaken) and cupcakes… beautiful, and delish!

Lindsey+Peter & one fun bridal party

Filed under: Photo Sessions, Photography — Tags: , , , — candid reflections @ 3:59 pm

Before the wedding, we hung out on the waterfront with Lindsey, Peter, and their fun group of close friends.  We had a great time, I can only imagine how much fun they would be to hang out with if high heels, pretty dresses, and tuxedos weren’t in the way!
