Photographing Andrew and Whitney gave me an idea for a great giveaway. It's that time of year when girls are buying gorgeous gowns for prom ... and then hanging them in the back of the closet for the next twenty years. Before you have it cleaned and hang it up or put it on ebay, why not use it for some beautiful photos?

I'm giving away a free photo session for anyone willing to have a little fun in their prom dress. If you're a high school junior or senior (or even if you're already in college and just need an excuse to pull out your old prom dress), this is your chance to unleash the model inside. Don't procrastinate though, I'll be choosing a winner Friday April 25. If you're interested, just send me an email with a photo (or link to a photo) of yourself along with a description of your dress. Friends or couples can apply to have a session together.

Details: The session will take place on a weekday evening in the next month, and you must be willing to get your dress dirty. You don't necessarily have to "trash" it, but a willingness to sit/lie on the ground is a must. The photos will be uploaded to an online gallery for viewing/ordering, but no purchase is required. Check out this blog for photos from photographers and seniors all over the country who are having fun in their prom dresses.

First I would like to congratulate Gloria and Ed who were married Saturday at Church Street United Methodist Church in downtown Knoxville. Marcus and I photographed their morning wedding ceremony and the reception at The Orangery.

Yesterday I also snapped a few backyard photos of my brother Andrew and his date Whitney before they left for their junior prom. Unfortunately, the photos were taken before the prom so we had to stick with more traditional poses to keep their outfits clean. Check out my next blog post for details on how to win a fun, FREE post-prom session.

Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend. Here are some pics from a fun engagement session with Tessa and Bruce last week. They're getting married this June at Dara's Garden and are so cute together.

What a beautiful day we've had! Here are some photos from a quick session at the park today with Kate. She's six and is a spunky little girl but very cooperative. While I waited on her to change outfits, I chatted with her little sister and snuck a few quick shots.

Marcus and I have had a busy week. In a trip that took less than 24 hours, we drove to Memphis and back for a citizenship test/interview with the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (formerly INS). His application was approved so now we just have to wait for the next swearing-in ceremony. He was already a permanent resident, but becoming a citizen will allow him to vote and never have to renew anything so that's exciting.

Today I'm mailing out some print orders and an engagement/guest book for my 6/7/8 couple Malinda & Del. Here's a quick photo of the cover and the layouts.

Have a great weekend and stay warm. They're saying we might finally see some snow!
