Business is booming and school is wild. Because of that fact, I rarely have time to do creative, just-for-me photo shoots like I could back when photography was just a hobby. However, I’m not complaining though, because I wouldn’t have it any other way. 🙂

Still, it was SO nice to be able to do a themed photo shoot were I could really let my creative juices flow. I wanted to do something that fit with the Halloween theme, but didn’t want to do the traditional “let’s go to a pumpkin patch” or “witch stirring a cauldron” type of session. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that… I just wanted something DIFFERENT ;))

That’s when I came up with this fun shoot. We got the clothes, fixed the hair and make up, and battled the white fuzzy caterpillars that covered the session location, all in the name of turning my friend/ model into a creepy dead girl. 😉

I’m really excited about how these photos turned out and I’m so excited to be able to share them with you now! Take a look:

Happy Halloween guys! And thanks for browsing! Until next time. 🙂

For years now, I have been waiting for the day that my mom would find someone special to spend her life with. I know that most of the time it’s the parent who worries about these things for their children, but role reversal has always been a common theme in my mom and I’s relationship. 😉 She’s a big kid at heart and is often the one that puts me at ease when I’m feeling overwhelmed. She is kind and caring and is truly a great role model for her kids. I wanted her to find someone to share all of that with because, obviously, she deserved it. Finally, in came Robert. Well, actually, in came Ben who then pushed in Robert. 😉

 

If you don’t know Robert yet, you are missing out. He is the most generous and loving man that I have ever met, which makes him a perfect match for my wonderful mom. I can’t say enough nice things about Rob, which is true for MOST people that come into contact with him. (The exception being waitresses… he’s really pompous and controlling when it comes to his food ;))

After just a couple of weeks of Mom dating Rob, I saw how perfect they were for one another. He’s funny and she’ll laugh at anything. She likes to cook and he likes to eat. They’re both sentimental and romantic. And to top it off, they are equally corny. 😉 I knew that my prayers were answered when they found each other. This proved to be true when he proposed a few months ago. (With a huge rock, no less…) I am so happy for them. Even more so, I am happy for myself and my brother. Finally, our family is complete. 🙂

Of course, I was the lucky photographer that got to capture their engagement photos, which was, of course, so fun and special. Here is a blog post showcasing them for all of you to see.

Mom… Robert… If you’re reading this, I love you and I can’t wait for you two to be married. Even more so, I can’t wait for your engagement party. 😉
