Meet Adria & Rich: Our e-session contest winners!

Spent a cold late afternoon at Epicenter with our 'E-session Contest' winners, Adria & Rich. 
(Remember them? They were one of our  2010 e-session contest winners!)  They were just as sweet in person as in the email Rich had sent to win the session for Adria.  We walked Epicenter and stopped by a few of their favorite places to try and make the session personal to them.  And though I froze them to the bone by spending much of our time outside....they were troopers and it so great to meet a couple who seem to just adore each other.  (And Rich--I of my faves is also the shot of Adria leaning on your shoulder...I love when a couple forgets all about me being there and I can capture a private moment like that:-) Thank you too so much for a great session and I wish you all the love and happiness in the world!

Modern Maternity

Can you believe this gorgeous hottie is less then 5 weeks from her due date?  (I know--jealous much?  Me too!)  I had such a great time with Mandy and her husband, Kevin.  --Not only are they just a gorgeous couple--they were up for anything and just had fun with the session.  We tried to include lots of personal touches like their nursery, their first 'children' (the kind with fur) and the front door of their brand spankin' new house. I absolutely LOVE the results of our very 'non-maternity', maternity session!  I can not wait to meet 'Baby R' very, very soon! (stay tuned to know if it's a boy or a girl....its still a secret:-)

Happy Valentines Day= 'Weddings by BlueSky' Launched!

-This is a 'soft' launch; meaning, no marketing efforts will begin, cards printed or site promoted without some feedback from you, my charming friends, family and clients.   Please  take a look (just know its a work in progress...:-) and provide any candid feedback you are willing to share.  --An image less than stellar?? Let me know.  Font not readable?  Let me know..  A get the picture.  Or, if there is something you just love..of course, I'd love to know that too:-)

As many of you know, I absolutely love shootings weddings and I am very excited to make this official.  The next 6 months will be a building time for me and due to that--our rates will be priced very reasonably as we build up the portfolio, add to the website and begin to build our 'wedding reputation' of excellence.  (If you know anyone getting married and booking a photographer int the next 6 months..check out the 'investment page' on the site.  I am also willing to 'shoot second' if you know of anyone who has already booked a photographer but is seeking a more full day of coverage than 1 photog can offer...)

With fingers crossed and a smile on my face....welcome to 'Weddings by BlueSky!'

Daydreaming of Summer...

In my constant quest to improve 'workflow' I stumbled across some images from a weekend in Daufuskie Island, SC last summer while trying to get all of my images onto a new hard drive.  (If you are unfamiliar with Daufauskie--it is a small, ferry/boat-access only island off of Hilton Head. Charming as can carts for transportation...deer grazing everywhere..and the craziest little marsh frogs I have ever heard. We even spent the night in an historic lighthouse...)c   Most of these shots were taken just as the sun was setting and everything glowed golden. 

Sigh.  I am so longing for a little sunshine and warmth..
