Julie, Jeff & William (+ baby)

I  had the pleasure of meeting up with up with a few of my favorite cousins over the weekend. We really lucked out with a nice day (for January) to take a few maternity/ family portraits before baby arrives, literally any day now!

It is pretty easy to see why this little guy melts my heart...

At the last minute on Friday  I decided to rent a camera lens I have been dying to test out, thankfully I still had my camera with me and  a very cute little puppy as a willing model. Here is Bella, an adorable little 3 month old Puggle. Enjoy!

Lights, Camera...Action!

There is so much I want to learn and try (and buy) when it comes to photography. I started off 2010 at an amazing inspirational 3 day photography conference in Mystic with some of the worlds greatest photographers.  I followed Mystic up with  another awesome Ten Eyck Tuesday Workshop with the fantastic Carla Ten Eyck, this time the class was all about lighting, and man did we light it up!

Carla's friends Sarah & Zacharia were our models. It wasn't too hard to convey how much these two love each other, they are super cool all the way from Utah. Sarah & Zacharia braved the cold, dark windy night, and they never complained or stopped smiling, and then they put on show for us!

We started off with natural light...

and then we added a little off camera flash 

then  I got to experiment with a video light -  so  dramatic I love it!
and then Sarah put on a show for us and threw fire! Seriously she lit up the sky!

Aimee & Asa

My cousin Aimee & her husband Asa are expecting their first child this March. There has a been a serious baby boom among my family, it has been amazing to watch the next generation come one after another all so close in age. I can only imagine the fun they will  have when they all get together. Here are a few pictures of Aimee's little baby bump that we took at a little get together in CT. Hopefully we will be able to meet up again and take a few more pictures before this little baby makes her arrival.
