Here is Christina – we did some portraits of just here while the rest of the wedding party waited in the limo.
This is when the REAL fun started. She is very relaxed in front of the camera and needed VERY little direction from me.

The bride and groom were introduced into the reception in traditional Lebanese style. A drummer led them in while the band played Christina did an Arabic dance. That girl can move!

This seems to be the month for mulitiples! Yesterday I photographed Kasey, John & Aubrey, 6 months old.

Their mother likes to position them for photos, by birth order from left to right. In the image above, Kasey, John, in the middle  and Aubrey on the right.

Here we switched the order. I don't think Kasey likes being in the middle.

Here's a portrait of Aubrey. She has BEAUTIFUL eyes! I love how her siblings are in the image but not the focus.

Here is the portrait of John. Such blue eyes!

And Kasey. She LOVES to be the center of attention.

These are just a few of the images I took yesterday. I haven't looked at all of them yet-these are a few quick picks that I posted for their Mom on facebook yesterday.

Anthony & Emily are 6 weeks old and look NOTHING alike! This is my favorite photo from the shoot.

Anthony is so expressive! He made all kinds of faces for the camera.

Emily is so calm and sweet.

My favorite thing about this image is her mouth hanging open!

Here's Anthony sleeping right next to her. Having them both sleeping at the same time didn't last long.

TJ is such a sweet dog. He's had a hard life, spending two years in a shelter waiting for someone to adopt him.  Two years ago he was finally adobted by a loving couple that treat him like he's their child.  TJ has cancer and doesn't have much time left so his owners wanted me to capture him in his element-on their boat out on the ocean.

Amanda & Markos should be arriving soon from their honeymoon! I finished their online album today and have it up and ready for them.
This is one of my favorite portraits of them. Although it was the ONE day this summer it didn't rain, we came prepared.

This is one of my favorite detail shots EVER! It has that commercial look I love so much! These are the brides shoes-very cool!

93-062009-127

I LOVE photographing Greek weddings. The priests always tell me to stand behind the bridesmaids and it is just the BEST place to capture the ceremony.

Flower and shoe detail-again that edgy commercial look that I strive for and Amanda was the perfect bride for it.
