Bartz Baby Bump

Becky, Dave and their "unborn daughter". Becky said they wanted to keep something a secret so the family is awaiting her arrival and of course her name! Dave did give us a hint that the baby will have the name Bartz . Which is the couple's last name...thanks alot Dave! The couple came in to the studio compliments of Sarah(studio manager) as a gift for Becky's shower! Very sweet couple and super excited about their soon to be bundle of joy! Being a mother already comes very natural to Becky, and Dave is ready to lend a hand (or a foot rub) when needed.

I had the pleasure to photograph the Morgan Twins recently. Rhian and Cara are two vibrant, talented young women who have a great attitude and lust for life. They have appeared on American Idol and had the opprotunity to sing the National Anthem for the Buffalo Bills. Along with their singing talent they both have recently received their Bachelor's degree's and have the world in the palm of their hands. They are a lot of fun and talented to boot! Check out their website to hear some of their original music or their schedule so you can see for yourself!

New prop

I was finally able to photograph my new prop today! A beautiful couch that Sarah found on Craigslist. I purchased it from a young fellow who was surprised at my elation to find such a great pattern and color. Apparently the couch had been in his family for 65 years, and naturally no one knew what to do with it given it's pallette . But lucky for me it is in great condition because Grandma kept the plastic on it and because says the young fellow "no one was allowed to sit on it". So the next time you go poking fun at someone for having plastic on their couch , you just think again!
Thanks to beautiful little Leah for making this shot so great. Once again I am honored that Mommy Julie, flys Leah all the way here from California for me to photograph her:)

YWCA Fabulous Females

I had the pleasure again this year of photographing the recipients of the YWCA Fabulous Females. True to form the ladies are simply a joy to have in the studio. Each with their own community projects and involvement have affected so many lives in a positive way.
I first met Peggy as a representative of Leadership Genesee and of course we all know her from her involvement in community theater. Carol was a familiar face because she has volunteered for the Crossroads House for 18 years. And Donna currently works for P.W. Minor, and chairs the Diabetes walk. All of these ladies do much more volunteer work than we all realize and with such grace and modesty. They are truly an inspiration.

........And then their was Haley. Notre Dame Class of 2010 swim champ. I have seen Haley many times at the studio and heard many a story about how she excels at swimming but had never seen it for myself.Not being a swimmer myself she got a chuckle out of the fact that I didn't quite know the lingo when I asked her to do a stroke that didn't exist. Despite the fact that I stuck out like a sore thumb with my turlteneck sweater, my cardigan and my scarf, I think it was a good time! Even for someone like me with little knowledge of the sport it was clear that Haley is gifted.

LeRoy High

Yes, it's that time of year again! Time to photograph the Class of 2010. I had lots of fun with Corrin my rep from LeRoy High School.(GO KNIGHTS!) We began the first of several sessions indoor only this time because it was raining buckets, as well as cats and dogs!
I have the official word that Mom(Karen) and Bob finally tied the knot. It's about time...gee I hope someone took pictures. They are a great couple and I wish them the best.
As for Corrin what incredible eye's. See for yourself.
