Trash the Dress

March 31, 2008

Today we did a Trash the Dress session in downtown Harrisburg. If you don’t know what that it, it is doing a fun session after your wedding in your wedding dress. We didn’t actually “trash” any of the dresses, but they did get pretty dirty from walking all over Harrisburg. I took so many great photos today that I am going to post sneak peaks from each girls session separately. First up, my sister. She is wearing my wedding dress since she isn’t married. It looks awesome on her and I am so glad she decided to do this with us.

another rep

March 30, 2008

I met with another one of my senior reps this morning. She even brought her boyfriend along. I was so excited, since he is the first high school guy I have photographed. They were so cute. Here are a few of my faves.

Notice the overuse of my new favorite spot (my last high school girl I also took here).

junior girl

March 25, 2008

Yesterday morning “A” and I had fun walking around downtown Mechanicsburg, looking for fun spots to take pictures. She was up for anything. I have pictures of her jumping in the air and doing handstands. She even had a slight “wardrobe malfunction” at the beginning of the shoot, causing her to have to run home and get some new clothes! I had a hard time picking out which photos to show on the blog because I loved so many of them.

You will recognize this door from photos I posted of Reese a few days ago. I knew it would be great for high school kids.

On Friday, I had 3 sessions. This was my third that day and I am just now starting to look through all the photos I took. I am shooting this couples wedding in June and I can’t wait. We were talking during the shoot and it turns out bride-to-be and I graduated from the same high school. I asked her what year she graduated, thinking we were about the same age. She said, 2004. I couldn’t believe it, she looked older to me. I felt so old when I told her I graduated in 1997.

This is probably my favorite from their session.

These sisters volunteered to model for my senior portfolio. I don’t know how I have lucked out and gotten such pretty models! They were so much fun to shoot. I even had to pull mom in for a few shots at the end.

100

March 17, 2008

This is my 100th post since starting the blog in October!

Today I met up with one of the girls who is going to be one of my Senior Reps. This is the second time I have taken photos of her. You will recognize her from the header at the top of my blog, from my business cards and from my website. We were lucky to pick a beautiful day for her photos.

maternity

March 15, 2008

Today I shot my first maternity session. You will never believe that this mom is due in 6 weeks. She looks great and she was a natural in front of the camera. Her kids were great, too! I can’t wait to photograph the new baby once he is born.

This is one of my favorite images I have ever taken . They are so cute.

I love when we have warm days. I am so ready for spring and nice weather so we can go outside and play. Today was a tease, since it is supposed to be rainy tomorrow and cold for the next week.

I love this picture of Reese. I NEVER get real smiles from her, so when I get one like this I love it. This is the real Reese, not the grumpy, pouty face she usually gives me in photos.
