Happy 2011!

There’s so much to say about 2010. I’ve been back in the Philly area for two years now and can hardly believe how lovingly I’ve been welcomed and embraced by my old home. I showed up in December 2008 – the recession had just hit and things were bad. I knew merely a handful of people around here and absolutely no professional connections to help me get established. 2009 was rough for all of us. I wondered if I’d made the right decision in moving from San Francisco. I had forgotten how cold this area could get. I missed my friends on the west coast. But I also photographed some beautiful weddings. I started meeting other wedding people. I began to understand the differences in east coast vs. west coast weddings.

2010 was looking up. Brides found LDP through friends and family, wedding coordinators, other wedding vendors, online review sites, and bridal fairs. I shot weddings all over the area. From an 8 person wedding to a guest list of 300. It was a great year.

Not only that but I moved to a new address, got in better shape, ran a half marathon, raised money for multiple sclerosis, and built stronger friendships.

And now we’re at 2011 and I’m blown away by how lucky I’ve been. I rang in the new year with an incredible couple (congrats, Trish & Tom!) and a truly awesome wedding. My calendar is filling up with the most amazing couples (you’ll see!). They’re laid back, hilarious, adorable and (knock on wood) don’t seem to have one ounce of bridezilla to them. I’m thrilled for the new venues I’ll see this year and psyched to see familiar faces at reception facilities and in bridal parties.

So much has happened in the past 2 years and I’m just amazed. Amazed and grateful. Thank you to each and every one of you – family member, friend, bride, groom, coordinator, florist, DJ, etc.

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.

School has started again. The days are (kinda) starting to cool off. My Pinterest is beginning to get a lot of fall outfits popping up on it. Most flowers are wilted until the next spring. The air is starting to smell differently. Baseball seasons is beginning to morph into football season. I suppose I need to face facts: summer is coming to a close.I won’t let it go down without a fight. I still relish the stray lightning bugs, lemonade, picnics, cotton dresses, A/C, and ice cream. There is still time for ice cream!  Now that I've moved my home to Chestnut Hill, come visit and we'll get some scoops at Bredenbeck's.Every month, I ...

Moment by Moment Organization
I've recently gotten involved with Moment by Moment, an organization of professional photographers who volunteer their services to families of terminally ill children. I had my first session with the family of a baby girl and it was heartbreaking. The organization gives each family prints and a CD of the session for them to treasure their child forever. Be truly thankful for your little one and cherish every day.For more information or to donate to this incredibly worthy organization, visit MomentbyMoment.org.

May is one of my craziest months of 2010. Loaded with weddings, engagement sessions, sunshine, and hope. What better way to usher in true summer (I have no idea what happened to spring) than with dandelions? Loved by children, scorned by gardeners, this flowery weed epitomizes youthful summers spent making wishes.Every month I feature new images for download for you to use as your desktop background.
