Cousins Rock



Ohh how this shoot made me miss my cousins in germany.
10 to be exact. All kinds of ages. A complete riot. Laughing, teasing, smiling, holding hands, hugging, kisses, talking and catching up, just an overall harmony you rarely see. It was very very nice. I had a blast with this family.
Thank you to you all for inviting me to do this wonderful and beautiful Photo shoot of you.
You guys represent the true meaning of family.

Senior 2010 - Rachel

I finally got to do it..... a Senior Portrait with a GIRL.
WoHoOo
Not just any girl though. She is the coolest High Schooler I have met. Very down to earth, calm and quite. Smart, intelligent, funny, athletic, mature and confident. However, she is also very very beautiful.
Pretty and Gorgeous. Perfection in every way. No doubt about it.

Here are a few of the things she loves:
Running
Reading
Daisy
Purple
Beach
Cheeseburgers and fries :)
and most of all hang with her friends

To her family, You have an incredibly beautiful daughter and a wonderful family. Thank you for letting me get to know you all. You all rock and are so awesome.

Rachel, you are an amazing person and you will have an amazing future. I wish you nothing but the very best in your journey thru life. Enjoy your last year of Highschool. It's one you'll never forget.
Thank you for being you and making this whole thing such a wonderful experience.

Until....next time

A. :)

Baby Baby Baby

How sweet it is to see a newborn baby. The smell and soft skin. The anticipation of getting a view of their eyes. 
Ohh how sweet it is.....

Meet handsome, small and tiny Ryan ~ 5 days old
He was the perfect little model. His mommies and daddies first. You can see the glow in both of them. If your a parent you know exactly what I mean. 


To the new parents, 
Soak in every moment and don't let a second pass you by, because it will be going super fast. 













Miracle times two


There are Miracles in life did you know that? 

I never was a big believer in miracles. I honestly have to say that. 
I mean I knew it was possible and perhaps a little true but I was more of a realistic person with medical explanations. My mind has changed since meeting Kelly and Nathan. You see, Nathan is a miracle by itself that took 3+ years in the making. Okay  fine, you say, that happens all the time. Yes it does, but for some it doesn't so when it does happen it is truly a miracle. However, when then Mom dies x 2 and ends up in the ICU for  a week due to several and severe major health issues that nobody was aware of after giving birth and doctors and nurses walking past her room when she was recovering saying " This is the one, she's alive ".
That IS a Miracle.
You see, Kellys mom passed away 6 months before Nathan was born. Did she have something to do with it? I believe so, most definite. Perhaps God and her.
 And let's not forget the nurses and doctors, because realistically + medically it was almost impossible.
So it is a MIRACLE that Kelly is with us today.
Her hubby, Nathan, family and friends I am sure think the same way. 

To Kelly and Nathan, her family and friends, 
I hope the future will bring you nothing but beautiful days filled with laughter and sunshine with nothing but good health.

Rock Stars

When my phone rang and I was asked if I can do a shoot of my 3 favorite kids I was thrilled. 
However, when  Mom asked me if I can do a Rock n Roll Theme I was jumping up and down for joy.  I was so excited are you kidding me. Wow !!  We started throwing ideas around and ended up we both had the same vision on what we wanted. It was awesome. The kids were a bit older so all in all it was a very good shoot. I mean we are talking a set of  2 year old twins and a 4 year old . 
I  just adore these kids, they are so cute and adorable, funny and lovable. 
Their Mom has also a very cute idea started, all their birthdays are right around the same time. So she started doing the 4th of July theme once a year. It's amazing !! 

To my 3 little friends, you guys did awesome. I am so proud of you. Can't wait to see you soon.

Go take a look and let me hear ya.

Plus I can't wait for you to see what is coming up next. 
 A 6 week old baby with a heck of a story, and then a 5 day old very precious little boy. 
Soon to come is one of my favorite model with a very special Photo shoot. 
I can't wait Viv. We'll have a great time. 

Until then... Rock on  !  :)
