The Lange Family

I met the Lange Family on a beautiful October Afternoon.  It was unusually hot, in the 80’s to be exact, and Tenney Park made the perfect fall backdrop.  I had a great time getting to know everyone, and they were a fun family to work with, open to whatever ideas I had (aka a photographers dream!). You might recognize Barry and Ashley,  I shot their engagement photos a few weeks back, and will be doing their wedding in May 2009.  I’m glad I’ll get to see this family again!  Below are a few of my favorites from the shoot!

Kate & Nate are Engaged!

I have known Kate and Nate for a few years now, and when I heard they were engaged, I was ecstatic!  When Kate asked me to be their photographer, I was honored!  It is such a pleasure to work with these two, and they are one of those couples that just being around them is a treat!  It is obvious from their pictures that they are in love with each other, such a deep, spiritual love, that some of these snap shots just take my breath away!  Thanks Kate & Nate for letting me be a part of your lives and your special day!  I can’t wait for June! I hope you enjoy your pictures! Below are a few of my favorites from the afternoon.

I met this handsome young man at McKee Farms Park for an morning of fun!  The playground was incredible, with all of these fun levels, slides, and equipment... and he can move!  Below are a few of my favorites from the shoot, although I have to admit it was hard to choose.  Thanks to Rachelle for letting me take pictures - I had a blast!

This photo was toward the end of the shoot.... I like to call it "How you know it's time the photographer go home!"
Logan had the best going down the slide face!

These photos are for my co-worker and friend, Kasia.  She is looking to do  some modeling on the side and needed some photos for her portfolio.  This past Saturday afternoon, we set out to take as many photos in as many places as possible, and I think it was a success!  Thanks Kasia for a great afternoon, and good luck with your future modeling career!
