12-28-09 Cutie Kyle in Belmont Shore

It appears as though it's been quite a while since my last post, it has! I took a nice long vacation for Christmas to California with my dear family. It was a relaxing and quiet 10 days. We watched the baby do everything from almost walk to eating mud. I'll post pictures of that soon. In the mean time, I shot a headshot for Kyle Roberts while we were there.
His agent is sending him for comedy, he wants to do drama and his hair alone is a character actor.

Please enjoy

12.4.09 Alanna + Nate Engaged!

Alanna + Nate won an engagement session from us at the Weddings Unveiled event in October. We actually met them a couples times before they won the package, so we were so excited to get to work with them. Alanna went to school for Photography and her taste is very specific, she wasn't finding the right photographer out there. I think we've won her over. 

She saw her engagement pictures and she said 
"Melanie we LOVE THEM!! Thank you so much, these are everything we hoped they would be :)" and "Those pics are AWESOME. You made us look great, we are a little in love with ourselves now. :) We keep looking at them, it's cute Nathan probably looks at them more than I do."

So we are very happy and proud to have taken part in their new life together. 
Hope to see you in October, guys.
Be Well

12-1-09 whoa... already?

Where has this year gone? I mean I understand that we had a new baby in January and essentially started our business this year. But honestly, do we deserve this year, the years whizzing by like loose calendar pages? Are we living in a Frank Capra film? I understand as you age, time becomes more about the people and things in your life, more so than about you alone. But really, this quick?! 
My husband's family has the most amazing tradition. Every year on Christmas Eve we all gather around the Christmas Tree and talk about our year to a video camera and after we report on our year we sing Christmas Carols for an hour or so. It's such an amazing tradition. The first year I visited his home for Christmas I participated in this tradition that was almost 10 years ago. I'm glad I started at the beginning because before we tape this year's "Christmas Eve Program" we watch the "Program" from 10 years ago. 
The first year I visited and saw the program my husband was 16 years old and during his year talked all about getting his drivers license. So cute. The first year they have it on video my husband is just 8 years old and he reads "The Night Before Christmas" for the camera. These pieces of our family's history are priceless. And I'm glad I get to be part of them. 
This year our son gets to make his debut. I can only imagine how amazing it will be for him when he's 30 and brings his wife home and gets to see what it was like when he was just 1 year old. 
Try it. I felt hokey on camera the first couple of times but now I know to make a note of all of the years events and be ready when it's my turn to speak. 
I hope this Holiday Season is the best it's ever been.
All the Best.
