You can read all about this event over at The Paleo Parents’ blog, but I wanted to share a few of my favorite shots from this fun and joyous event!

Last October, I got to assist at a super fun wedding! The guests were amazing dancers and everyone was so funny and friendly. I had a great time. I love getting to do what I LOVE while also celebrating others in LOVE. Congratulations B & I!

I have been aching to do some portraits like these for awhile. There is nothing more beautiful than a mother cherishing her new baby skin to skin.
This post contains implied nudity– please click away if artistic nudes offend you.
I am excited to try portraits like these with an older nursling.

I hate mailing packages. I end up shooting rolls upon rolls of film before I get around to sending it to the lab. Developed and scanned film delivery days are like Christmas around here. There are usually months of memories in that box. The problem is when I do these blog posts I have to severely edit myself and what I share. Yes, this is severely edited!
We went apple picking last month.
We went raspberry picking and to the botanical gardens earlier this summer.
And we also went to Busch Gardens for Howl-O-Scream last month.
Then, we had a nap.
Ektar 100 and Portra 800. F100.

Time for my token two photos from the last wedding I second shot!
I fell in LOVE with this one. I am always drawn to the flower girls– I guess because I am a child photographer!
The bride was so amazingly gorgeous!

One of my best friends had a baby! Again! The first time, I was there all night, but she had to have a c-section. The next time, I was supposed to support her through a VBAC; but as I got there, they were wheeling her back for a repeat cesarean. Third time’s the charm, right? She scheduled her cesarean since all doctors say no way to a VBAC at that point. And I planned to be there for photos afterwards. She ended up going into labor before the appointment and I was out of town. She called me crying with happiness, saying she had had a VBAC right there in the OR.
This fourth time, I was determined that I would see a Henderson baby born. And FINALLY it happened. I was a nasty, blubbery mess the whole time.
Even though Daddy is also a photographer, they honored me with letting me do a newborn session with Emma. What is better than hanging out with your friend and playing with a pretty, new baby?

I second shot a wedding a couple weeks ago with Scott Henderson. I had a lot of fun. And it was my anniversary as well, so I now share a very special date with the bride and groom. The best part of second shooting is I only have to edit 2– or none. I did 2 this time.

And I am in love with it.
These were all taken with my Nikon F100 with Kodak Portra 400 VC and Fuji 800z. Developed by Richard Lab in LA and scanned by me. (I should have let Richard do that too!)
Imagine what I could do with fresh film, my sharper lenses and a proper light meter! I am so energized to shoot!

I chose the one time to try a portrait with Archie that he *didn’t* want to nurse! So here I am forcing him to sit with me for one second…(1/200 of a second). I thought I would get a beautiful nursing portrait. HA.
Oh well, he is still super cute.

Brian love to cook, and when I first asked him where his space was his first choice was the kitchen– well, bed was first, but that’s just because he’s exhausted. I wonder what wonders he will work in the kitchen tonight!
And yes, I cleaned the kitchen with the clone tool. I wish I could Photoshop real life!
