Out of Town!

Hi everyone,

We will be out of town until Sunday night. We will respond to your e-mails on Monday! Have a great weekend.


Allison + Rob – Norwalk, CT Engagement Session Photos

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

Yesterday I met up with Allison and Rob at Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk. Allison met Rob through one of Rob’s co-workers, and they fell in love almost immediately. Within a couple of months they were talking about marriage. Now they are getting married!

It was an overcast day – which is always great for shooting! Although it did start raining almost an hour into the session, Allison and Rob were troopers. We kept shooting, until we couldn’t any longer. It was well worth it. Have a look!

We started off on these rocks – which are supposedly off limits. My philosophy is do it until you are asked to leave ; )

Love this one.

On the pier – aren’t they sweet?

My favorite! Allison reminds me of a hollywood starlet here – a little bit of Marilyn combined with some Jackie O.

A different view.

This one makes me smile ; ) Partly because I remember Allison trying to look through the viewfinder and realizing that without putting some change in, all you see is black.

Such an adorable couple!

Love the feel of this one.

On the lifeguard chair. I haven’t used texture in a while – but this one screamed for it.

They are so much fun to be around.

And of course we had to capture some fall leaves.

Allison thinking about throwing leaves at Rob…

Rob throwing leaves at Allison…

Allison kept trying to throw leaves at Rob, but they would blow right back at her because of the way the wind was blowing. It was pretty funny. They thought so too.

Walking into the fall “forest”.

Thank you Allison and Rob for spending the afternoon with me! I had so much fun with you both and THANK YOU for being such good sports with all the rain ; ) Looking forward to your wedding.

A Top Ten List

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

All the election stuff has really got me thinking today. No – I am not gonna talk politics ; ) I have been thinking all day about history and how things are remembered, and my life. I decided I would share the top ten days / events that I remember as my happiest days. Just for fun! And in no particular order…

1. Our wedding day (of course!)

2. The day I got my first DSLR

3. The day I met Bono (I seriously couldn’t speak for a couple of hours after this!)

4. Our honeymoon in New Zealand (I need to go back and visit!)

5. The day I got into Law School (well, I didn’t end of going, but I was psyched when I got in!)

6. Visiting Joshua Tree National Park. One of my favorite places ever. Mind you, I am a major U2 fan, but besides that, it is an amazing place!

7. The day that Erik asked me out on our first date, and the day after when we had our first date. I was so excited & nervous I considered not showing up.

8. The Queens of the Stone Age concert at The Warfield in San Francisco (I think in 2003?). The absolute BEST live show I have ever seen!

9. The days my Niece & Nephews were born.

10. A roadtrip to Yosemite with my girls!

Yeah, I have had some AWESOME days! Lists are fun ; )
