New Year........Stunning New Baby

This was my first attempt at the classic baby-girl shots with the outlandish hair accessories- posed and primped. I LOVE THESE!!! But, not so easy, especially since this little princess was just at the "three week window" which usually marks the end of the earliest stage of life when babies sleep very deeply and are naturally curled up. Thank goodness she gave her wonderful mom and I a few minutes of heavy slumber so we could adjust her into a cuddly position!!! I am a sucker for newborns, they bring back memories that are so dear to me. We tried a few different hair looks, but there was no way I was changing that pink tutu- it was PERFECT against that lush, dark background. I think this shoot was a smashing success, especially for a "first try"!!!

Seize Happiness

How lucky was I to get a last-minute referral to shoot a wedding on New Year's Day? How utterly blown away was I to learn that the groom was an octogenarian and his bride a close friend for 30 years? How unlucky was I that my camera was broken?? How lucky was I that a friend came through and lent me equipment? A perfect New Year's harbinger of good things to come in 2011. What do I come away with after having the honor of documenting this beautiful event? Life is so incredible, seize happiness wherever and whenever you find it, and it's not over till it's OVER!
