I finally finished editing the photos from the Steinhof Wedding and posted them on the blog. Check them out!
I recently helped a friend photograph her brothers wedding here in the Rheingau region. The ceremony took place on a boat while it toured a portion of the Rhine River. With green hills, quaint German towns, and castles on clifftops to either side, it was very picturesque.
This shoot presented a whole new set of challenges for me, in addition to it being on a boat in the intense sun, I had Emma strapped to the front of me. Luckily she slept through most of it! I don't think I could have done it otherwise!
I spent some time taking prints for Emma's birth announcement a couple weeks ago. I didn't end up using any of the photos because I liked a print I took randomly after one of her baths best, but I still really like these, so I wanted to share.
Recognize the headband?
I had the opportunity to shoot PJ's, Jason's brother, senior photos while in Ohio. PJ had the perfect spot picked out for it; an old abandoned mill. Although cold, it was very picturesque with the river in the background and tiny snow flurries falling on.

Some photos I took recently of my mother's finished Biscornu patterns. Visit her site for more information on the project and other creative adventures.
While home I had the opportunity to photograph Emily & Andy as they celebrate their recent engagement. Wedding is in September! We'll be back to visit, with baby, to celebrate with them!

I read this article this morning from a photographer on a regret she's made as a photographer and a mom - not getting in photos with her children due to her own insecurities. I can relate to this just from being a girl and from being the photographer in the family. We always have tons of pictures of Jason on vacation, but good ones of me are rare.
I've tried to get better since having a meltdown after a trip to Italy where the only pictures I was in were unflattering. I wasn't liking my body at the time and didn't feel like it was fair that I always tried to frame my friends and family so that they would look good, but then no effort went into photos taken of me. Really it wasn't anyone's fault but my own because I hadn't voiced how I felt until that moment, so things have been better since, but I do have to make a conscious effort to hand the camera over.
As we welcome our first child, I think this will be more important than ever. I liked the line of this article that stated:
"Photographs help children tell themselves the narrative of their lives, of how their parents loved them and how they were once small and then they grew and changed and prospered. Photographs stake a claim to our past–it was us! we were there!–that let us know that we matter."
I believe this to be so true. I myself, like the photographer that wrote this article, treasure photos of myself when I was little with my parents. Those photos matter so much more than the ones of just myself as a kid. SO learn with me and get out from behind the camera!
A glimpse into what I've been doing lately.
