Secrets are hard to keep, and this one had to be one of the toughest!  My good friend Sarah has been dating Jamie for years now, and he is from/lives in Oxford, England.  Talk about long-distance!  But they have done it — both of them in school and relying on the phone/e-mail to keep in touch.  When I was told he was coming to the US a bit earlier to do some proposal planning, and that he wanted PICTURES I was floored!  I couldn’t wait to capture this life-changing moment for my friend.  So last night, a crew of people showed up at Loose Park to get things together, and prepare for the proposal.  Click the image below to watch the slideshow, and see the awful wig I wore to make sure she wouldn’t recognize me from the sidelines! 🙂

I am going to be leaving town tomorrow morning with no access to voicemail or e-mail until late Sunday night.  So if you are trying to reach me I will be available on Monday for sure.  But I think that this is the best possible post to hold all you faithful readers until I return.  It is Winfield time — friends, camp fires, and great bluegrass music!

My final session of the day yesterday was with Christina & Joe — who will be getting married in Maui!  We started at the Raphael hotel where Joe proposed, and then just walked around that area since it was a completely new location for me!  The lighting could not have been better — 5 PM with some light clouds covering the sun — *sigh*!  We have a LOT of great shots, and I am sure that you noticed they are my new banner for the blog this month!  Their slideshow is here, and check out below!

I photographed this guy years ago…and his family… and his sister’s wedding…did I mention that I love this family? And when he chose to go downtown for his session I knew that it was going to be an awesome session,  Hid Dad Mike even carried my HEAVY bag the whole time as we walked all over the Crossroads!  Jake picked the song for his slideshow, and I think he even managed to have a good time while being my supermodel… 🙂  Enjoy the SLIDESHOW HERE, and the top ones below!  (Oh and family, I included your fun shot at the end of the slideshow)

Skylar is one of my favorite little subjects, and yesterday was her 4th and Final session from Baby’s First Year!  It is so amazing to watch these tiny little babies grow into people with such big personalities!  One thing that hasn’t changed with Skylar is her love for Pooh Bear.  I can always count on that stuffed bear to bring a smile to her face, and she really dove into her purple cupcake!  My favorites are below, but you don’t want to miss this SLIDESHOW!

On Friday at 6:30 I went out to Loose Park for an engagement session — and I have never in my many years of shooting out there gone so late, OR on a Friday!   The lighting was very nice — and I got some sun-flare just like one of my favorite photographers Jessica Claire!  These two are getting married on September 22 — and Steve is my husband’s cousin.  Unfortunately I cannot attend the wedding since I am shooting one already, but I wanted to at least take part in their engagement images!  Their slideshow is HERE, and favorites below!
