Usually what photographs present is a finished product. The moment is captured, but then edited from the other photos that were taken, and then maybe slightly tweaked and straightened and adjusted and then you get a finished product.
I really strive to keep things as they were… I want clients to be themselves and feel comfortable and I honestly hope that each personality of the client can come through and really bring the photo to life. I work with the lighting, the composition, angles and some direction, but overall I want you to be you.
That being said, after The Top 10 of 2010, I thought it might be fun to give you a behind the scenes glance at some of 2010. Some of the best moments are silly expressions and unplanned situations.
Enjoy seeing a behind the scenes look as we close out 2010!

I love this one… sunset and crinoline and rain puddles.
The groomsmen survey the vintage car breakdown ; everyone still made it where they needed to be!
The bustling of the dress is sometimes tricky. Bustling skills are critical bridesmaid knowledge!
Summer brides, piece of advice: stay hydrated.
Sometimes I enlist a helper along the way.
… and granted.
Laughter is the best.
Impromptu golf lessons.
Waiting for the cyclists…
Some child (ahem, mine) running through the far left hand corner of the shot…
… and sometimes I can work a little photo shop magic.
Big and little.
“Yes, hi there animal with horns and beady eyes. I will try not to vex you.”
Getting ready to make a sprint.
First try. Didn’t work. Let the record state that this was their idea…
My girls and I. Lollipops kept them in one spot long enough to get their photo!
The disastrous lollipop mess was worth it.
Thanks to everyone who makes creating the photos so much fun and adventure!
