June Ten Eyck Tuesday

Yay! Another post!

So, as a photographer for Carla Ten Eyck I was invited to participate in the June session of Ten Eyck Tuesday, and I wasn't about to pass this opportunity up!

Carla organized several lovely models (Miss Mandie, Miss Emily, and Miss Candice Dowling of Jubilee Events) as well as some amazing vendors for our shoot. You CAN NOT go wrong working with The New Haven Lawn Club for a venue; the UH(!)MAZING Tony and Cat from Datura: A Modern Garden; the equally talented and lovely Jennie Fresa for classic, beautiful hair and make up; and finally, last but not least, the utterly wonderful Beth Chapman and her assistant Alison from The White Dress by the Shore!!!!!! Whew - I think that may have been the longest sentence in history! You must check out these vendors if you are at all interested in a classy venue, beautifully done hair and/or make up, wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and / or FLOWERS!

Let's get to the photos!!!

Yep, a flower shawl. Drool.

Hmmm, what do you think I may have an obsession with?

Could it be the bird cage veil? (Bridal mug shot below...)

Yes, it's the bird cage veil. I covet this beautiful thing. I am currently in the process of convincing my husband to marry me all over again. Just because I want to wear this veil. 

Ummm, Candice is GORGEOUS!!!!!!!! So 40's glam!!

I love that Mandi climbed right up in the tree after I mentioned the idea. What a girl! I love this shot - though I wish Tony and Cat's flowers had made it into the tree as well!

Look at some of these floral pieces!!  Tony and Cat from Datura: A Modern Garden are so creative. There were floral purses, little floral box bouquets, a magical floral fairy wand, and SO much more - these guys are just absolutely the most creative, generous floral designers you will ever meet and work with. Please consider contacting them if you need flowers for an occasion in your life.

Yay! Don't forget to look up Ten Eyck Tuesdays if you think a photography workshop could be in your future!!!

These guys are gettin' BIG!!!

WOAH!! Major blog hiatus!!!!!! I'm back and have a bunch of new stuff to post like, seriously. A. TON. OF. STUFF. With some health malfunctions from both me and my dear old Dad as well as a very busy spring season, I have neglected the blog. I am sorry. I'll try to be better, but sometimes it's the little things that have to give. So here's to some new blog entries!!!

First up! Mr. Ayden and Miss Ella. They are 10 months old!!!! Ahhh! Time flies! Last time I took photos of the two children together they were about 8 weeks old!! Now they have tons of teeth and are both on the verge of walking! It truly was a bittersweet moment when I saw them. But they are as adorable as ever!!! Take a look:

I'm not sure if anyone will agree with me, but I have to say that getting a photo of two 10-month olds together - is a CHALLENGE!!! While I have a couple more, here is one of the images of the two kids together!
