blink of an eye photography – by carmen » Blog

winter fun

hope everyone had a great weekend!   this year i’m really trying to photograph my kiddos every month and capture their day-to-day lives.  so of course what a better photo-op during the big snow we got this weekend while they had a blast sledding! i’m also loving my collages these days … they’re perfect for showcasing a number of images while telling the little story!

my five boys

i have wanted to print some images of the boys for some time now and i finally did! it was fun to go through my fall pictures because the color was so vibrant.  i made some gallery wraps for my husbands office. he’s been asking me for years to decorate it with some images of the boys. of course, i’ve been so busy i never managed to do it until now.  i think they’ll be the perfect valentine’s gift! here’s a little collage of the shoot! gosh do i miss the sun and warmer weather.

what a beautiful family!

jessica and dan are having a baby

jessica’s a former bride and i was thrilled when she called to schedule a maternity session. she is such a natural beauty and dan is a great guy and so fun to be around. they drove up from cincinnati on a cold winter day so we did most of the shooting in the studio. we had fun listening to the band cake on the i-pod and then ran out for some starbucks while grabbing a few outdoor shots.
i’m dying to meet their little one in a couple months. stay warm and i’ll see you soon!

Cute stuff Carmen. Love the yellow & orange.

i’m back

sorry for the time away but i had such a crazy december that i took a break from blogging. many of you have hinted about when my next post was going to be … and here it is!
it’s winter in ohio and lately a lot of grey skies, some snow but mostly wet and cold weather around here. i’ve been cooking up a storm at home with the kids, organzing my house and designing gallery wraps for my 2009 clients. i know i’ve said this before but i need to take pictures of the beautiful wall collages we’ve done because they are gorgeous!
we just did a fun shoot for “flour and child”. whitney the owner is a former bride, maternity and family client but most of all a fabulous baker and friend. she has a blog which you should check out if you want to get a hold of some of her goodies! her baked goods are scrumptious!!! i ordered some special for our family and friends over the holidays because they are sooo delicious.
thanks to amanda for helping me shoot. whitney brought her kiddos to help style the session … they were so cute!

jenny + jared

i went up to chicago a few weeks ago to photograph jenny and jarrod’s engagement session. it was a chilly but beautiful december morning. i had such a nice time meeting them and spending a couple hours running around downtown chicago. jarrod use to play hockey and we randomly ran into an ice skating rink … i asked them if they wanted to take a few laps around the rink …. they said yes! of course i was excited … i love when couples do things that are unique, different but meaningful in some way. thanks again for a great session and i can’t wait to see you both again!

I love these photos! I think you captured the heart of the city with a beautiful couple in love. I laugh too, cause I recently took a bride and groom, on their wedding day, ice skating as well. So fun!

Laura - January 12, 2010 - 3:05 pm
