Busy Summer Sessions

I can't believe the new school year is already upon us! My kids start on August 30th. The weather this summer has certainly been accomodating, at least for the activities we had scheduled. I'm a fan of hot, summer weather, so I have no complaints at all! Love when you can walk outside and have no temperature jolt from indoors, and when you can be outside by a campfire and the air is still warm enough to be in a sleeveless shirt!!

Specializing in outdoor, on location sessions can be a challenge, but not this summer! It was the busiest season thus far! I've had the pleasure of photographing family portraits, engagement sessions, high school seniors and am getting ready for several upcoming weddings this fall! Here are some of my favorite pix of the summer.

This is actually my hair stylist and her family! If you visit her salon, you'll see this portrait on display. See the links page of my website to view her Signature Style Salon website! If you mention this portrait and hold a session, you can receive a $25 gift certificate to the salon!

This family wanted a portrait taken to give to their Grandmother for her 80th birthday! I'm told she was quite thrilled when she saw it!! This was one of my favorites from the session.

Part of what I enjoy about being a photographer and doing these sessions and weddings is getting to know the people. It's fun to see families and couples interact, have fun, and be able to help them capture this time in their lives in portrait keepsakes.

And High School Seniors are always fun! We were having so much fun on this session, we spent 3 hours walking around the City! Not all sessions are that long, but this was very fun and she's such a great young lady.

I also fulfilled my first responsibility as 2nd Vice President for the Professional Photographer's Association, a role I officially entered this past June, having coordinated/chaired the Association's annual Summer Seminar. Elizabeth and Trey Homan were the guest speakers and had a lot to offer those in attendance including a live demonstration with a Mom with triplets! The topic of the day was ...from maternity, to children and beyond.

Me with the Homans as they accept their speaking certificates.

I truly hope you had a fulfilling summer and enjoy the next few weeks as the leaves start to change! Get out and enjoy the scenary!
