Spring is in the air

I should be able to debut my website sometime in the next week or so. I have a boudoir session coming up shortly that will complete it. Been working on that. Very excited for next month... prom portraits....
Has anyone else noticed the flowers blooming? They really perk me up. Got some good shots of birds across the street from my house.. and a close encounter of a squirrel on the playground.... swiping a french fry off the ground lol

Engagement Portraits in the Park

Last Wednesday I met with a very fun, super in love, newly engaged couple for some romantic portraits in the park. We also ventured downtown and even shot a few pics outside of the place they had their first date at. Janie is an absolute sweetheart with a contagious smile and her fiance Kevin, bares a slight resemblance to actor Rob Pattinson in the eyes. (or so I think, you judge) lol. But anyway.... they were very comfortable with eachother... and not only does that make a great relationship, but wonderful engagement portraits. Both of them were extremely photogenic and very open to fun ideas and even had some great ideas of their own and I loved it! I had a great time doing pics and visiting with them. I was so pleased when I loaded their photos and began editing. I really enjoyed the smiles they not only gave the camera, but to each other. Looking at their pictures so happy and in love together was just as refreshing as reading a romance novel..... not the cheesy kind.... the GOOD kind... the kind that makes you sigh.... I have no doubt these two will have an epic love story to tell their grandkids someday..... Enjoy the photos.....

True love is friendship -- caught on fire."

You are my sunshine... my only sunshine.....

It's been awhile! I'm back! I was never gone... just busy... *smile*

Yesterday I took my little one out for some park portraits... and for a chance to finally wear the dress my grandmother got her last year! ha! We had a great time and my little angel modeled like a pro. Keep in mind, I can easily do portraits just like this for your little girl! You'll love the pictures, and she'll have fun. It's a win, win, for both of you!

Engagement Session Park/Downtown

rain, rain, go away. It almost ruined my E-Session today. THANKFULLY... it held off for a little while and we actually got a whole bunch of sunshine. Maybe a little too much. I was really looking forward to a little overcast, but hey.... we worked with it. So it's all good.

Today I did an engagement session with a couple named Regina and James. I happened to meet Regina in the mall where she works, just a few days ago, and the rest is history. Well.... you know what I mean. lol. I have a boat load of pics from today. First we started in Crandall Park. Regina & James weren't as shy as they thought they would be. They warmed up to the camera very quick and it shows in their photos. *smile*

Here are just a few of their shots...

and as always... don't forget to read my "older posts" when you get to the bottom of my blog.

and she has jedi texting powers....

She's very spontanious & I think I love that about her. Plus she isn't too shy or proud to climb in a tree for me, jump in a giant cement fountain, or pose like "baby" on a bridge. This time we got together on a whim for some park shots at Crandall Park. It was a very cold windy day, and at times it was sprinkling but we managed to pull off some good shots.

....P.S. She can also run in wedges! I mean seriously? Who can do that? Cerina can do that. lol

Also be sure when reading my blog at the bottom to click "older posts".... there's more....CgW

I wear my sunglasses at night....

Actually.. I.... really don't. I was just singing. But I did get Cerina to wear my shades for a bit earlier for our last minute mini session of night shots!! We did a little experimenting and had a blast in the freezing cold and wind. Cerina has modeling experience and she was a great sport and didn't mind laying on the ground, the stairs, or the floor of the gazebo we shot in. There are many more but I'll post a few here for her sneak peak.... We'll be getting together again really soon for more casual day shots... and maybe we'll play around a bit again too....

Thank you Cerina! I look forward to working with you again!

Senior Portraits...

They said it would snow.... it didn't... they said it would rain... it did.. but only a little... and I'm very grateful for that... because I had a long awaited appointment for senior portraits and they traveled all the way from Tupper Lake! When we first hit Crandall Park it was beginning to drizzle a bit.... so we started out under trees and I think once the rain saw we weren't giving in... and how bright and pretty Miss Jenna looked in yellow just like the sun... the clouds gave in and let the sun come out afterall!

Don't let me forget to mention this is my baby cousin! Jenna was my new years kiss when it turned 1994! I was babysitting her at a hotel in Buffalo and she was only 6 months old.... but I was always superstitious about making sure you kissed someone at midnight, so Jenna it was! LOL

We began by trees in the park.... trying to warm up a bit... you know... there's always that ackwardness when someone gets in your face with a huge camera and starts clicking away... it takes a few shots to adjust and loosen up... lol.... after a few park shots we decided to head downtown.... the background at the park clearly showed we still have some snow left here.... and Jenna was in a short sleeved shirt.... ha.... I didn't want her to freeze and I didn't want her pictures to scream "hey look at me I'm an adirondack girl!", She is.... and I guess so am I... but that's not the point... so downtown we went. Before we knew it we were finding bright red doors to shoot by and my girl was climbing up in trees for me! It was a great day!

Here is Jenna's Sneak Peak of her Senior Portraits...

Congratulations Jenna! You can do anything you put your mind to! I can't believe you're all grown up! Much love from the whole family!
