Hayden is 2!!!!

Greg, Brevinn and I were all part of this session in New Holstein, WI! I had the honor of photographing Hayden, who is actually a 2nd cousin of ours! Scott(who is Greg's cousin) and Marissa have a son named Hayden! They were married this past spring, and our gift to them was a photo session!
The session was late evening and we went to a park, just down the street from their home! We had Parker John's pizza before the photographs were taken. It a very casual session, which are my favorite, and really fun to hang out with Scott and Marissa! Hayden is a great kid & he is quite the ham!!!! Can you tell?

M.L.Y.G Camp Out {Messiah Lutheran Church, South Windsor}

Greg and I are the youth leaders at our church, Messiah Lutheran, in South Windsor! We organize several events every year, this was a huge event as far as planning purposes! It was a huge success due to ALL of our volunteers who contributed their time and talent!

The slideshow is made up of pictures taken with my camera, but a ton of people were able to use it and take some GREAT PICTURES, thanks everyone for helping capture this event, it's fun to be on the other side of the camera a little bit!!!

The Gran Brothers, College Grads {Old Wethersfield, CT}

A couple weeks ago I photographed Jarrett & Justin. They are brothers who are graduating from college a year a part and their mom wanted to get some creative photographs of them. We needed head shots for Justin who is studying to be a minister We also needed some portraits of Jarrett in his cap and gown, because the day of graduation he had a pretty bad black eye, from what I understand. These boys are all about the extreme sports, like snowboarding, skiing off
extreme vertical cliffs, and Jarrett evens flies his own planes. During the session we talked about taking photographs of them while they are skiing, as well as Jarrett giving me a plane ride to capture aerial photographs of CT & NYC!!! AWESOME!!! I'm up for both of these ideas & I know in both cases we'd get some rad photographs of you two!!! Hopefully this fall and winter we can make it happen!

Class of 2010 Seniors {Micah, MLS}

So, last week I had the pleasure of photographing Micah, who goes to school in Michigan at the Michigan Lutheran Seminary, a WELS H.S.! He is our Pastor's son at Messiah Lutheran in South Windsor and that is how I got connected with him, saying this because I don't advertise in a high school seniors market. Frankly, I just don't have time to advertise!!! I guess that is a good thing!!!

Micah plans to go to school for engineering, fantastic! He could also have a solid career modeling....but I HIGHLY DOUBT he wants to do that!!! Thanks again Micah, God's blessings on your last year in H.S.!!!

Johnny Rocket's is a GREAT Place to shoot!!!
Of course, I'm obsessed with RED, so that may be a reason I loved it there!!!

As well as we needed to take "head shots" for her potential future opportunities, long term, to be doing some on-camera work. Erin, you would be great, you are such an honestly sweet person, I wish you all the best for always, wherever life may take you!!!
