Our 44th President

If you didn't get the opportunity to watch/listen to Barack's speech today, you absolutely must when you get a moment. It was thoughtful, well delivered and had depth and substance. It was wonderfully written.

I wish him all the best as he has a very rocky road ahead of him.

Absolutely amazing that on this 20th day of January, we made history.

Here are a couple of photographs from MSNBC:

Dina's portfolio

Dina's portfolio
So, Dina contacted me about getting some portfolio shots done. I always enjoy working with models so I was looking forward to it. We had the shoot before I left for vacation and I didn't have time to edit it until I got back. So ... without further delay ... here are a few of my favorites from our time ...

I like the pose and the light on this next image ...

This is probably my favorite from the session ... Dina has a great laugh!

Dina, I had such fun meeting you and getting to know you at the shoot!

Robin and Jay's engagement

Robin and Jay's engagement

I met Jay for the first time at the engagement session and was thrilled that he was just as wonderful as Robin! We had to reschedule their shoot on account of cold weather and we were SO glad that we did. It was almost 65 degrees! Gotta love Cincinnati's weather!
Robin and Jay love the Southgate House in Newport, so it was a perfect place to start their session!
We wandered around Newport a bit ...
I love Robin's giggle!

neat silhouette shot ...
We 'had' to incorporate this sign ... it was perfect!
I even managed to find the ONE tree with some color on it ...

this next one is probably my favorite from their session ... it speaks to me.

their headless shot ...
Robin and Jay, I can't wait for the wedding!! And to see/hear which band you chose!

Cotillion Events

Cotillion Events
I had a photoshoot with Mauricio from Cotillion Events in December. He wanted photos of a few of his cakes for some marketing material he was putting together. I photographed one of his materpieces at Amy and Pete's wedding and he loved the photos so much, he called me first. I was honored. He is a true artist when it comes to his cakes. He has a passion that came through as he told me about how he worked with each bride to produce the perfect confection for her wedding day. I was 100% impressed with his professionalism and who can resist a guy with a fabulous accent?
He even brought me some cupcakes so that I could sample some of his work!! Woo hoo!!!
Two words ... I'm SOLD. He is amazing the kitchen! But don't take my word for it ... by all means, call him yourself and set up a tasting! His website is HERE.
I thought I would share a few of the photographs we made ...
