March 28, 2013 Update

A lot has happened since I last posted… and I’ve forgotten to update you here!

This past weekend we moved. Yes, it was a sad choice – but a wise one. We loved our country home – but found all of our time, money and resources were going into it. We want more out of life than a house. We have bought a home still in the area – but in town, and much simpler. We don’t get that house for a month so we are renting a house this month. Always an adventure!

But the big news we wanted to share is really exciting!

We have been working on this forever… but finally went public with what our family is working on this weekend. Want to see what it is? You can watch it HERE

Yes! We are adopting!! So excited! It will likely be a year or more still… but we eagerly anticipate that day! You can follow our journey on our adoption blog HERE.

And what some people don’t know is that to adopt is about $35,000. Crazy. Insane. But we truly feel it is crazier for a child to not know a loving family.

Here is the deal….

20-30minute session with a minimum of 10 images on disc for $100-150 (depending on photographer). Amazing deal… and in time for Mother’s Day!!

March 2, 2013 Greg and Jiney

A few years ago I had the honour of documenting Dave and Vivian‘s wedding in New York, and now it’s time for one of Vivian’s bridesmaids to get married and I was so happy to be invited back to document her day! It was great to meet Greg and Jiney in lower Manhattan last week for their engagement session. Despite pouring rain ALL day, we managed to have some fun indoors! Looking forward to their Spring wedding!
