I hope you all had a great weekend!! I did, but I must say I’m exhausted! Whew!
Today’s blog title “action-packed” is probably an understatement! I could also describe the weekend as “non-stop,” “busy, busy, busy” or even “Jen’s Photo Frenzy!”
Saturday morning started for me with a drive to upstate New York (approximately 2 hours from me) to visit two of my college friends Stephanie & Craig. Stephanie was in my sorority and Craig was in a fraternity where I spent a lot of time during my college years.
Stephanie & Craig recently had a baby boy and they asked if I would make the trip to their house in NY and photograph their baby “J.” I said yes immediately! Jo Ann and I made the trip and we had such a great time with Steph, Craig & Lil “J.”
They were truly fantastic to work with and lil “J” was amazing the whole session! What a trooper!! It was so great to connect with old friends and to be able to capture this very special time in their life for them!
To top off the great day – Stephanie recommended a great restaurant in Tarrytown, NY where Jo Ann and I had a great appetizer and dinner. (Mmmmm Potato Skins!)
Here is a sneak peek from the session…
Then, today I met up with Christa & Mark for their engagement session on Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU) campus. Christa & Mark took a ride the day before the session and found a great spot for photos by Hennessey Hall (The Mansion) on campus. It was the perfect location!
I met Christa about 8 years ago through my childhood friend Nicole and when Christa & Mark got engaged recently, Nicole recommended me to do their engagement photos. I was hoping they would ask me and they did! YAY!
We had such a BEAUTIFUL day for the session…we kept saying over and over that we couldn’t believe how lucky we were! It was a wonderful 82 degrees out! It did get a little HOT for us in the direct sun but then we just found the lovely shade to cool us down!
The trouble was that I couldn’t cool down this couple because they were sizzling hot the whole shoot (hey Christa & Mark, did you like being called “sizzling hot???” LOL!) 😀
At the end of the session I was playing with the concept of “good sun flare” and I got this shot! Now, this is what I call GOOD SUN FLARE!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PHOTO!!
Hmmm, did I mention that I love this photo?? 😀
More to come from these two sessions in the coming days!
And there are a lot more jobs coming for the next couple months that I can’t wait to share with you all!
