Can you get any cuter?

I photographed my nephew's second birthday last weekend. He's just one of the cutest subjects in the world. The theme was "monkeying around," and my sister-in-law did an amazing job with the treats. She's quite the hostess with the mostess!

More formalized albums showcasing my work at kids' parties, engagement photos, holiday card photos, cocktail receptions and more are coming soon!

STUFFED: Recipe for Success

Take four fabulous PR ladies, three significant others (guess which one flew solo...), and roughly seven courses of fabulous homemade gourmet food with perfect wine pairings and what do you get? An AMAZING evening and one completely stuffed blogger!! Words cannot describe the fabulous food the Plaxo's prepared this evening. I'm now super nervous about my turn at hosting "usc" in December!!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, even though my mind has raced forward to Christmas long before turkey day crossed my mind, I wanted to add how thankful I am to have these lovely ladies and their mates in my life At one point this year I was questioning why I had spent roughly four whole years at my last job. Well, I'm certain one of those reasons was the opportunity to meet Jamie (and her husband Kellen), Holly (and her husband Michael) and Erin (and her mate Phil). I'm so thankful to have them all in my life, professionally and personally. And now, before getting too mushy, I am now going to enjoy my food comma and once again spring forward into dreams of sugar plums and white Christmases.....

Still Shooting...

The baby quilt still isn't finished, but I was able to attend and be the official photographer for the event. The quilt is coming soon, but the photography is available now!

The holidays will be a busy time for me and my Nikon. I'm shooting several friends' holiday cards pictures, as well as a law firm's holiday party. I still have availability - contact me if you need assistance capturing your holiday memories!!

Guess what I was for Halloween!

a human pin cushion!  

Just joking, a little.  I stayed in tonight to make progress on my very first quilt.  I'm good at the piecing part, but I've never put all the layers together before.  Fingers crossed, please!

This weekend was IU Homecoming, and I not only got to visit some of my favorite haunts with old college friends in Bloomington, Ind., but visit with my niece and nephew on the way back! My photos from the day have been posted to Flickr, but here’s a sneak peak!

How do you say success in French?

This past weekend was a blast as well as a success! First off, my partner-in-crime Peter and I pulled off an amazing show of local media relations for our pro bono project. The school saw attendance at the event more than TRIPLE - from 700 attendees last year to more than 2,400!! And, more importantly revenue brought in by the event was DOUBLE the school's goal!! I landed a more than three minute segment on NBC 5, a great placement on one of my personal favorite design blogs, a hit in the Chicago Tribune as well as two placements in RedEye.... just to name a few! Did I mention Streetwise!?! I'm so excited to have made a difference for such a wonderful school!

I'm even more excited to share the photography from Holly and Michael's wedding on Saturday. I had the privilege of taking photos of the bride as she prepared for her big day, and took a few at the event as well. Holly and Michael were both glowing. Aren't they swell?
