This lovely young lady is Emily. This shoot was cold but fun. She has 3 horses who are all more like dogs than horses. They were super friendly and even posed for some shots. I don't have a light kit yet and since i knew we would be in the barn (it was raining. And did I mention cold?), I needed to figure something out for lighting, fast and cheap. So I went to Lowes. I bought a 500w construction light, and a 300w bulb that I put in a silver dish lamp, that acted like a beauty dish, without the grid. It was harsh lighting, but her skin could take it. Anyway it was fun, She was awesome!

This Was an awesome wedding. I had so much fun. It was small and elegant. The house that they had the reception at happened to be the same house that my mother and all her siblings grew up in. It then was owned by my uncle and when I was a kid my cousins and I used to play there all the time. The attic was such an interesting part of the house since it was completely original. It was built back in the 1800's, and it had so much character we had to use it in a photo.

AHHHH!!!!! 2010!! It's here, it came fast. I have a whole lot of catching up to do. Here is some fun stuff to check out for now. I've been it a bit of a funk. I tend to go into hermit mode when it gets cold. Good old New England winters. Does anyone else suffer with that? I do love the smell of wood stoves and fresh snow, and Christmas is always beautiful. But that cold keeps me in to a fault, because I know that all bundled up there is a world of fun out there and lots of pictures to be taken. Here are some pics I took about a month ago before winter set in. Don't let them fool you it was still cold, but die hard surfers and body boarders couldn't be stopped, and since one of them was my husband I had some strong convincing to get out there and I'm glad I did. The beach is the best in the off season, the lighting is amazing and it's never crowded.
