This little blog of mine has definitely slowed down over the past few weeks. The holiday madness is over and now I am down to my last couple of weddings/shoots that I get to share with you for awhile. It’s always so crazy to me how my life goes from full blown 5th gear craziness for the months of Sept-December and then comes to a screeching, tire squealing, rubber track leaving , smoking halt once January comes. In about a month I will be wandering my house, unshowered, looking for a purpose in life and waiting until it is time to make dinner so I feel like I contributed to the world. It’s the same every year. I welcome these first couple of weeks of January though when I feel like I can get a handle on my life and my business and not feel like I am hanging on by a rapidly fraying rope (like I feel like in mid November, for example). I like looking forward to all of the awesome couples that I have coming up in 2017. It’s definitely going to be a good year:)
My last engagement session of 2016 was with my Lisa and Shane. Ummm…I’m not entirely sure that there is a sweeter, more enthusiastic, more bubbly girl in the world than my Lisa. We “met” over the phone and even just in a phone conversation her enthusiasm for life just radiates all around her. There is no way not to be instantly drawn to her and I thank whatever little photography Gods there are that pointed her in the direction to my website. Lisa and Shane took a bus in from Brooklyn on the day of our shoot. Got on a bus 6am, traveled all the way here and then hopped into my car to immediately begin shooting. I personally, would have curled up and died at the prospect of getting in front of a camera after a 5 hour bus ride but Lisa swiped on some lipstick, put on a pair of heels, looked beautiful and laughed her way through it with the most positive attitude of anyone I have ever met. Shane was an awesome sport and it is clear why these two people are heading into forever together. They are perfect for each other.
Look how beautiful she is. The squirrels that day were like crazy, maniacal robot squirrels that had no fear and tried eating us whole. I swear to God. It was frightening. The little girl in the window KILLS me. You guys are the best. I’m so glad you are mine and I can’t wait until July to see you again!
