Last week I hung out with a really cool senior, Blake Heyrman. Here are a couple of the pictures that stood out as I was going through the photographs.

Congratulations to all of the couples who were married on 10/10/10! The gorgeous weather that we had on Sunday was perfect for weddings and for outdoor photography sessions like the combined engagement and family portraits that I did with Olivia Williams and Chris Shubert. I know that they are super anxious to see some of the photos so here's a sneak peek!

We started out with family photos of Olivia and Chris with their little man Liam. He's just 9-months-old and was a little unsure about being on the grass, but he really enjoyed just being outside with his parents.

At this age, babies are just as likely to flip over and suck on the grass as they are to smile up at a stranger with a camera. Happily, Chris's dad and Elmo were on hand to coax a few smiles out of Liam, but he wasn't in the mood for kisses.

Once Liam left with his grandpa, Olivia and Chris could focus all of their attention on each other, and things got a little more romantic.

For engagement and senior photos, it's nice to do an outfit change so that you get some pictures in casual clothes as well as some that are more formal. Bright, solid colors are also a good choice, and I love Olivia's dress. Chris is a car enthusiast so of course we also wanted to include his ride in a few shots.

I'm excited because I just received an album in the mail and wanted to share. I'm always looking for new products to offer my customers, and this album is from a new album company that I've been wanting to try. Like other albums I offer, it's a digital album with the photos printed directly on the pages, and the cover has a photo that wraps around from front to back. What I really like about this album is that there isn't a gutter gap between the pages. When you open the book, the spreads lay flat, and the photo is printed across the crease in the center.

Because the bride, Mandy, helps run Butterfly Gap Retreat with her family, I'm giving them a copy of the album to show their clients at BGR. I'll also have a copy to show my prospective clients. Butterfly Gap is a gorgeous venue, perfect for a bridal or couple portrait session, and I designed the album to showcase photos of the couple. Here are the cover and a few of my favorite spreads:
