April came to us looking for a Fall family shoot with her husband, Tim, and daughter, Jordan. We went to Botanical Gardens and hung out for an afternoon. I used to think that children were easy to shoot, but I met little Jordan and she proved me wrong. Jordan is an adorable girl and is just an unpredictable character. She moves soooo fast and like all other kids.... just wants to do her thing! We had some fun times that day and Jordan even went home with a well deserved toy - a couple leaves that were almost the size of her body. April told me that Jordan passed out and slept forever after our shoot....I didn't tell her (until now) that I passed out too!

We first met Jillian and Stephen from Jessica and Daniel's wedding (a wedding we worked earlier this year). We are soooo glad that they came to us. When I first met Jillian, she had so many ideas spinning in her head - revolvling doors, leaves, a beach, fall colors and tree climbing. I knew that this couple was going to be fun and up for anything. We timed the fall colors and ended up at Botanical Gardens in Norfolk. There's always a first for everything and I am admitting today that last week was the first time that I have ever climbed a tree to take pictures! This will definitely be a couple to follow and we look forward to their wedding day in October 2010!

A couple week's ago Danielle and her mom hung out with us at Sandbridge for Danielle's Senior pictures. They came to us wanting something different from the traditional school photographer's look. On the day of the shoot we had to reschedule due to bad weather, but as usual, good things come to those who wait. The rescheduled shoot at the beach was perfect - warm weather, small breeze and a golden sunset. In talking with Danielle, I discovered that she puts me to shame in two sports - swimming and snow boarding. I can't do very well with either of those sports. She is an all around great person and we wish her the best in her endeavours!

As the holidays get closer we all begin to spend more time with family. A couple weeks ago we did a shoot with Maddy (my niece) and this time it was Jordan's turn (my nephew). Joyce was looking for a fall theme and Jordan was probably just looking to have fun. Cole and I took them to Botanical Gardens in Norfolk and had a blast there. There were just enough leaves to pile up and throw around and the colors were so perfect. I wish Fall was year around.
