Spring Inspiration

As you know, I adore the designs of Cynthia Betts. She is truly a visionary in the world of weddings. Her designs capture beauty and elegance in amazing ways. She has two table designs currently at Zephyr Weddings in Coralville. I had the privilege of photographing them for her while I was there taking pictures for Zephyr.

Iowa Memorial Union Bridal Event

This past Sunday, I had the privilege of meeting so many amazing brides and grooms at the Weddings in Iowa Preferred Vendor Show at the Iowa Memorial Union. The turn out was wonderful. I always have so much fun visiting with the brides and grooms. We had a lot of entries for our door prizes and many entered our Amazing Wedding Giveaway! I can't wait to see how the voting goes in March and look forward to working with the winning couple!! Remember, if you haven't already shared your love story with us, go here for your chance to win.

At the end of the event, there was a gorgeous runway fashion show. The dresses were fantastic and the guys were rocking their tuxes. It's always so much fun to see the different styles. I was asked by Cynthia Betts, wedding coordinator extraordinaire (seriously, if you need a coordinator/planner she is THE one to go to, your wedding will be beyond fabulous with her designs!), to photograph the event. Here are some of the images from the fashion show:

Beautiful Blue-Eyed Little Girl

On Saturday, I had the adorable little Miss Veda in my studio. What a little ray of sunshine! She was so adorable and so much fun to photograph. Veda was a pro! So smiley and happy! I am absolutely in love with her blue eyes and her two-toothed smile. The last time she was in the studio she was only a few weeks old. My how she's grown! I look forward to having her back in May for her one year session.

The Turner Family

Yesterday, I was up in Clermont, IA to photograph the Turner family. They were an energetic bunch and great to photograph. I have had a few sessions with them over the past year, including maternity and newborn session, and each time it's been a lot of fun. This is their first family photograph though.

Carter Joseph

Last Friday, I was up in St. Michael, MN for a newborn session with the sweet little guy that is Carter Joseph. He was so much fun to work with. It took a while to get him to fall asleep, but once he did his adorableness just multiplied. I love the photos we got with his daddy's dog tags. So sweet!
