I was looking forward to this shoot for a long time.  Not only did I get to spend a bit of time with an old friend but I got to spend some time with her beautiful daughter as well.  The last time I saw baby Dom was when she was….well, a baby!

La-Toya is truly one of the most gorgeous women I know.  Flawless skin, perfect smile and she just oozes a welcoming personality.  She’s funny and courageous and a fabulous mom.  Her daughter now possesses all of those things.  Which just shows what a good job La-Toya has done raising her. 

La-Toya had asked if I could do some photos of her and Dom so she could capture the special bond they have.  I was a wee bit nervous as this is not something I know much about.  I know about baby and momma bonds, I know about the incredible relationship that mom’s have with their sons but I have no idea, from a mom’s point of view, what the relationship should look like, with a teenaged girl, from a photography point of view.  Well, I didn’t need to worry.  These two are such hams and so natural in front of the camera that it was easy.

I had a lot of fun with you guys 🙂  Thanks again and we’ll see Dom again when she’s got her braces off!!

Snuggling a fresh, adorable baby like this one just reminds me why I love photographing newborns!  So sleepy and hungry and trying to figure this huge world out.  And mom and dad trying to figure out when she’s sleepy and hungry and learning every minute of the day 🙂

Kinda makes me wonder what it would be like to have a little girl in this house full of boys 😉

You could not have wished for a more perfect Fall day.  Warm and sunny during the day and rainy at night.  Getting married outside in the Fall is tricky.  You never quite know what you’ll get.  Rain, wind, even snow!  Everything turned out the way we had hoped though 🙂

The silver dollar on the bottom of the bride’s shoe was worn by her Mom when she got married, date stamped 1968.

Thanks for putting up with me Craig 😉

LOVE this quote.  And, having two boys myself, I can verify that this statement is true 🙂

Boy, n: one of the most lovable creatures on Earth.  😉

Stunning blue eyes, all three of these cuties.  So close in age, these sisters all share the same eyes but have completely different personalities.  The oldest is a typical first child….loves to be the mom!  The middle one, is definitely a middle child.  mischievous, adventurous.  The youngest is the baby.  Cuddle monster, momma and daddy’s girl, sticking close  by.  I love being able to photograph these girls for my girly fix and to see how much they change each year 🙂

See mom, the hiking was worth it 😉

It turned out to be a perfect Fall day.  Sunny, crisp and full of laughs and love.  I met Amber and Blair the day before the wedding for the first time.  Amber is an amazing woman and I can’t even begin to list all of her stunning accomplishments, so I will say, she will make an outstanding physician very soon.  Blair.  Hmmmmmm.  Truthful would be the one word I would use to describe him.  Oh, and he LOVES getting his picture taken…..or was it that he DESPISES his picture taken???  He thought he’d be a challenge for me.  But I stepped up and he ended up loving me in the end 😉  Bonding over beers does that for a relationship.

The following, is an uncanny impression of Sir Sean Connery.

All the best to Amber and Blair.  You seem to be a perfect fit 🙂  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day.
