Shawn & Brian ~ Macomb, MI 06.14.08

Last weekend was my first wedding back from maternity leave and it couldn't have been with a more perfect couple - the deadly combination - gorgeous AND FUN! The details were amazing as well. Shawn's mom worked so hard on them and my personal favorites were the table number signs - each one had different black and white images of Shawn and Brian from over the years. They have been together for 14 years so there were some great shots from the past spread around the room! Also, the reception was so much fun, with Robert from Encore Party DJ's playing some great tunes! He impressed me with his great idea - he sends out cards prior to the wedding so that the guests can request their faves before the big day. Then come the wedding - he has compiled a list of everyone's faves, rather than playing the same 'ole stuff at every wedding. Genius.

I had a great time capturing Shawn & Brian's day. Congratulations you two!! Here are some of my faves...


And for those of you wondering how our first air travel with baby Jay went... carry on items include camera gear, diaper bag, pump, and don't forget the child... (this picture does not include checked luggage - oh my.)

First Family Photos...

So my wonderful friend Maile of Relish Photography, took some beautiful shots of our new family! (I am now done with maternity leave, so I promise I won't keep bombarding you with baby/family pics). I'm just in love with these images and wanted to share. I figured for once in the early life of Jay, I'd like to be in some of the family photos with my family. Maile is awesome! She is hilariously funny and so very talented! Check out her blog and prepare to be entertained. Thank you Maile for the gift of gifts - memories to hold on to forever!

Little Man Jay

Here are some of my favorite images captured of little man Jay over these last weeks - posting due to popular demand. This time off to truly enjoy him has been so precious to me. Thanks everyone for your wonderful emails and comments! Jay and I travel to Michigan this coming weekend to shoot Brian & Shawn's wedding. So stay tuned!
