I've been insanely busy this past weekend. Evidently October is THE month for weddings and family pictures. Shot 2 weddings and 2 portrait sessions in 3 days....crazy but fun. I'm still working on processing all the images so just putting up a few now for a sneak peak.
Friday, shot a wedding with the fabulous Brandi Brown. The couple, Nate & Suzanne, were married in Greece last month and Friday was their reception with family and friends at the Mad Art Gallery....a super fun and funky venue.
Then, on Saturday, drove down to Perryville for an even crazier party...uh wedding...shooting with Samantha Iverson of Mirage Photo. I can't remember the last time I had such a rambunctious group to photograph...I LOVED it!!! It was like being part of the wedding party. (No pictures will be posted on this wedding until after the bride & groom see the images).
Then, on Sunday, got together with my good friends Anna and Dan and their new baby girl, Samantha (who is 10 weeks old and just too stinkin' cute!) for baby's first photo session.
Also, had a mini-session with Anna's brother, Daryn and Lori and their crew...Kyle (center), and twins Clayton(far left) and Kerstyn (far right).

As I was downloading the images to my computer, a couple jumped out at me as some really great images and I wanted to share. What do you think?
I especially love this image below.
It makes me think of the sweet days of summer and how its fading fast with the onset of fall. The joy in her expression...how she's reminiscing with her girlfriends about this day...this beautiful day...perfect for getting married.
Well, back to editing now. . . and trying to pick out the rest of my favorites.
Check back to hear more about this truly beautiful day for Kelly and Brandon...there's some really fun, sexy shots of the ladies coming up too.
And Dorinda, thanks for having me along...really enjoyed shooting with you.

Everything has been freshly painted. A beautiful blue on the accent wall with random blocks of color in subtle shades of the same blue paired with a simple dark cream on the remaining walls...perfect for showcasing all the lovely brides and families I've had the pleasure of working with.
Thanks to my mom for coming out to help me paint (for two days...that blue wall was time-consuming for sure). My husband saw all my handiwork and declared I was in Martha Stewart mode...I guess that's a compliment.
I even got to use my new made over area right away. I had a client consultation on Sunday and they were pretty impressed with my wall. I was walking tall...well, as tall as a 4'11" woman can walk that is...I was so proud of my handiwork. I don't know what made me more proud, the fact that it turned out so well or that I saved money....maybe both.
I'm not exactly done yet...still need to get all my prints and samples on the wall but here's a few pics of what's done so far.
I'm particularly proud of this foyer area with the mirror and chest in this picture below. Didn't buy anything ...just repurposed stuff that was sitting around in the basement ...dabbd a little paint and wah-lah ...perfect for what I need.

Meghan and Kirk were up for just about anything I asked them to do...they were so easy going. I had sooo much fun. I hope you guys did too, Meghan.
As I was importing all my images into my computer, these few jumped out at me as some pretty awesome images. What do you think?
Wow!!! All I can say is Wow. This has got to be my favorite...
They brought Jack along...he was so well behaved.
I'm sure I'm going to have more favorites once I get everything processed. So check back for more.
Actually, I think I've missed (that is...totally skipped over) blogging about a couple of weddings and other stuff and so I should be having those up soon.
