Katie & Carlos

Well, our first wedding of the Chesler season started off with a bang...on thunder that is.
Katie and Carlos had planned to meet beforehand for their beautiful Belhurst Castle romantic photographs. Ellen and I pulled out some great speed photography, but we were no match for Mother Nature's rain. We had a 2 raindrop warning, and guessed it...
Buckets-and on wet bride.
A little quick thinking saved us though...I threw her train over her head, and crisis averted. She was a little damp in the inside, but her hair, makeup, veil....everything was perfect. Phew!

A HUGE thank you to Katie and Carlos and their super laid-back personalities. What a great kick start to the season!


Should any baby be this adorable?

I'm trying to limit myself to 5 images on my blog posts-it's so hard! So...the following post has Ryleigh's video, with all of her most adorable images in it.
I big thanks to her mom, Sam, for sticking it out while Ryleigh got accustomed to the studio, *cried* for the first 40 minutes. Then she fell fast asleep.
She is just so precious!

Do they come any cuter?

Ben's 3 year video

Ben is three (and family)

Little bitty baby boy Benjamin is growing up.
He's asked for a baby brother for his birthday, not a sister.
Hey-he's a boy who knows what he wants!

Andrea & Tony's Wedding

First off, I have to thank Mark for photographing with me, we always have such a great time together-and the photos are amazing!
And a huge Thank You to Andrea and Tony for being a little daring, getting a little dirty, and trusting us when we said "Let's find a farm for photos."
We were a little worried about the weather forecast, it was calling for some serious rain, and boy did we luck out! The first storm blew right over us, only letting off a very few drops before the ceremony. And just after the ceremony started-it poured outside! We could all hear it hitting the roof of the church. By the end of the "I do's" the sky was clear, and the sun was a shinin' again. The ceremony took place in a small church in Rushville, and then we moved to the farm on Number Nine Rd, then off to a small park in Clifton Springs next to Warfields.
We finished up our day at the wonderful Burgundy Basin.

Spring flowers and showers

It was such a beautiful day today.Warm 70 degree weather, slightly over cast, with a short shower this afternoon. Everything was so green after the rain, so out with the camera I went to see how my flowers were doing. Amongst my pretty flowers there was a moth, and some pesky mosquitoes too.
Here's my results. Enjoy!

The Meyers Girls' - girls

I'll be honest-this made my want for a little girl so much worse that I could have ever imagined.
Little baby Ryleigh was so sweet and snuggly, and cuddly. Alyvia just smiles- at everything - all the time. And Hayden was a great helper!
These are three gorgeous little girls!

On Two Wheels!

This is it. It's all over.
First T-ball, now no training wheels?
What's next?
Overnight parties.
I think we'll put the training wheels back on.


I had the honor of photographing this little guy for his One Year photos. What a cute, thoughtful, little ball of energy. He reminded me so much of Nolan when he was one. He wanted to see everything, and he wanted to move.
And, you know, I'm a sucker forblue eyes :)
