hope everyone had a fantastic holiday! we had a great time home in the ‘burgh, driving in snow, snow tubing, and scraping ice off our cars in the -8 degree windchill. :) we’ve been scrambling to get our lives back together and in order since we’ve gotten back…and this week we’re getting on the right track. :) new pricing for the new year, new packages, and a very busy schedule await us this year and we’re pumped! but now it’s time to play catch up.

shortly before the holidays my friend jennifer received the lovely gift of a beautiful niece! mackenzie was born november 23, 2009 at 6lbs and 15oz and is as healthy and amazing as can be. she’s really an adorable baby girl who is incredibly happy and content. jennifer bought her sister a session with me for christmas and i got to meet the lovely mom danielle and her gorgeous newborn! we all had a great time catching up with each other, admiring baby mackenzie, and enjoying the company of max…the greatest weiner dog ever.

the following two pictures demonstrate the impact a weiner dog has on the level of fun in your photoshoot.

and now for the adorable baby!!












we’ve booked ourselves a camp site in hanging rock for the weekend! we’re leaving friday afternoon. getting some more editing done today so it will be a quick and easy blog on friday and no blog on saturday. i haven’t been camping in a while, but the weather should be beautiful and i’m hoping to get some good pictures. last time i went to hanging rock i didn’t have a wide angle, so that will be incredibly useful for the waterfalls n’at! we’re also hitting up a waterpark on the way home… because what good is a 7 year anniversary without a waterpark?

and now kevin, nichole, & connor continued… the extended version. :)

i had a lovely shoot on sunday with kevin, nichole, and their baby connor. we did a bunch of shots of connor flying solo, a few family shots, and a couple of cute engagement shots. kevin and nichole were so awesome and connor is an absolute dream baby to take pictures of. we had a lot of fun and i’m super excited to be photographing their wedding next month!
