Baby Belly...

My friend (and oh, so amazing graphic designer) Kate and I got together this week to take some pics of her baby belly. She is so darn cute, even 81/2 months pregnant, so I definitely wanted to share just a couple of them. She is being induced this Saturday so I am sure I will have some pics of baby Finnley to share soon.

Kate is super creative. She got these letters for Finn's name from the craft store and then covered them with moss, sticks, leaves and paint. They are so fun.

Kate and her husband live in a condo and I found this really cool brick wall between some of the buildings. There was even green grass!! It feels like it has been so long since I have seen green grass.
I can never resist the doggies...Good Luck on Saturday Kate!!

Happy Dog-gone Holidays.

Mom made us get the family together for a picture for her Christmas cards, so I thought I'd share it here too. If only you all could have been flies on the wall watching us try to get a good shot with six people and five dogs. At one point we were laughing so hard most of us had tears streaming down our faces. Dogs were growling at each other (and at us), they wouldn't sit still...forget getting them to look at the camera. And meanwhile, I had to set the self-timer on the camera and then had ten seconds to grab Marlee (who followed me to the camera every time) and get situated on the sofa (pretending to be relaxed) before the shutter clicked. I thought we did pretty well considering. By the way... the only two doggies that belong to me are the black one with the white nose who looks as if he is ready to eat my father and the red-head on Jason's lap. She's the one you have to watch out for... we call her "the instigator." Just makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside, huh? Merry Christmas - Jennie

Carrie and Gabe

Ever so often a couple comes along that make me realize all over again how much I love, love, love my job.... Carrie and Gabe were that couple. They were fun, adorable, creative, totally in love and most importantly had a great sense of humor... I think the pictures in the sunglasses sum it up.... I get to do one more session with these two when the weather heats up a little. I'm not sure what they are up for yet, but what ever it is, I am sure it will be a blast.

This pic is from the bridal brunch... One of the girls set her plate down and I noticed the steam rising off of it looked so cool... Carrie's dress was probably my favorite I have seen this year, and she looked gorgeous in it. Lace is just so perfect for the fall...
Carrie has this old Hollywood glam factor about her... she is a classic beauty.
Gabe is a superhero in his other life... I am sure of it. He rocked too... funny, smart...and quite handsome.

So, Carrie and Gabe absolutely did not want to see each other before the wedding, so they put on sunglasses so we could do some shots with their eyes closed. I think it must have loosened them up a bit not being able to see each other (or themselves) because they were hilarious!
This was a sweet moment. Carrie is sitting on the floor reading the letter Gabe wrote and sent to her just minutes before the wedding.
I could seriously play with sparklers for hours!Thanks guys! and Congrats.
