I had a brand new client album come in last week and I just had to take a moment to share a few images. This one is a Queensberry Duo Album which I did for Kristan and Steve. I've been using Queensberry albums since I got into this business way back in 2003. Every year (for 8 years now) I head to the WPPI trade show in Vegas to make sure they are still the finest albums in the world...and they have never let me down. There are more and more album companies popping up all over the place these days but it always concerns me when I see wedding albums floating around out there that look like the pages might crease or the books might just fall apart any second. The craftsmanship of these babies is just unparalleled in this business as far as I'm concerned and the printing

Many of you know already that last month I traveled to Haiti with an organization called NRI, New Reality International. It was truly one of the most incredible experiences of my life and although I've had about 5 weeks to process everything emotionally, even now I can barely describe the amazing friendships I made, with both the North American medical team I traveled with as well as our Haitian translators. I will share my images and some stories here on the blog over the next few weeks but in the meantime I wanted to share this little video/ photo slideshow I worked on over the weekend. I hope you enjoy. If you'd like to do something to help the people of Haiti who still desperately need the help, please visit www.newrealityinternational.org to donate money, tents, medical supplies or to find out what other ways you might be able to contribute.

Well not me exactly because let's be honest, aside from my family, a few close friends and my dog Oliver, very few people really care enough what I'm doing on a daily basis to actually gossip about me. But I was sort of tickled to receive an email from my friend Jen Stiebel in DC who told me that one of my pictures of Palmdale is posted on PerezHiton.com today. So go check it out when you get a chance, and while you're at it, be sure to go download some awesome songs at www.wearepalmdale.com! By the way, I'm blogging right now during my jury selection break. Gotta send out a big shout out to my good pal Jay Goldman who has been my partner in crime all day.
I can tell you from experience that getting up the day after your wedding to do another photo shoot isn't easy. My husband and I dragged ourselves out of bed around noon the day after our own wedding when my good friends Nicole & Brad Wolf showed up at our hotel loaded with gear and assistants to photograph us for our "Mr. & Mrs. Session". We were both exhausted and could have easily just slept the day away if we'd been allowed to, but in the end we were so so glad to have the images that we now have hanging on our walls. The truth is, most couples these days don't particularly want to spend their whole wedding day posing for pictures, and I can't blame them. I always try to make the most of every second that I have with a couple on their wedding day. Sometimes it's a
I have so much good stuff in the queue to blog so hang in there people. But seeing as how I'm trying to be a better blogger , I figure that posting a few sneak peeks would be a good place to start. So here are a couple of favorites from Jane & Mark's lovely DC wedding on March 27th. This first one might seem simple and unfussy but there is just something about it that I am so in love with. I just feel like it is the perfect essence of Jane & Mark. This is just who they are. If you know them personally, please feel free to agree or disagree with me but this one just grabs me and holds me. And here's a fun one of the whole wedding party which we shot in one of the classrooms at Georgetown University where the ceremony was held. I stood
