Engaged : Monica & Jeffrey

We've had a really mild Winter here in Delaware, and there have only been a handful of blustery, cold days, all of which have been days I've had outdoor shoots!  Despite the frigid temperatures and insane wind gusts, Monica and Jeffrey couldn't have been more incredible to photograph, and I cannot wait for their wedding this October. Hopefully, it'll be a warm Fall Day!

Fashion : Phat Days

We all have them. Days where we're feeling blah, bloated, sluggish and downright drab. Here are a few outfits for those who can't stay in wearing sweats to brave the world and still look put together and cute.

Portraits : Welcome to the World Dylan G

One of my oldest and dearest friends just had her second baby a few short weeks ago, so I grabbed my F4 and some Perfectly Peach to snag a few shots of newborn baby Dylan.

Design : Laura Shema & The Adorabilibuddies

For those of you unaware of the tour de force of artistic awesomeness that is Laura Shema, well, do I have a treat for you! I commissioned Laura to illustrate my four cats in her own unique style and boy, did Laura nail it. What I love about these prints is how Laura was able to absolutely capture the unique personalities of my four very different felines. And that's the remarkable and intangible quality to Laura's work that is so incredible, how she can illustrate the essence of an individual. 
Laura isn't limited to cat portraits, she does incredible portraits of people for wedding invitations and holiday cards, private commissions, editorial work, fashion illustration as well as fine art. 
Gracie, the oldest, and the most refined. Gracie truly is the little lady. And yes, Gracie usually sits quite refined with her little paws crossed, and the contented smirk on her face is spot on!
Husky, Lively, Happy-go-lucky Lil Man is wide eyed, affectionate and always ready to play.
My darling Peach's often whispered that our skinny little neurotic huntress is an alien species. If Peach were an actress, she would be Tilda Swinton. In fact, Peach MAY BE Tilda Swinton....
My sweet, shy little Bella, the baby of the group. She is even tempered, petite and quite thoughtful. She's very shy, but a cuddle monster when you least expect it!

Fashion : Curves Ahead

Most women aren't built like Victoria's Secret Supermodels, but there are a lot of really gorgeous, feminine women out there with amazing, voluptuous bodies who have a hard time finding clothes to fit and flatter. I put together a few outfits that celebrate the female form and showcase just how sexy women are at every size.
Don't be a shrinking wallflower, Flaunt a curvy figure with bold colors.
Trouser Jeans + Knot Detail at the bust draw attention to what you want to show off
A Bustier dress nips in at the waist and amplifies cleavage, while the scarf can be used as a shawl to cover cold arms

An adorable and comfy sweaterdress and knee high boots are the perfect cozy casual ensemble that's figure flattering.
In my opinion, the perfect day to night look for any woman, any size. Chic, Sophisticated, Sexy.

Fashion : Valentines Leather & Lace

With Valentines just around the corner, I've been quite busy with Haute Boudoir™ sessions, and the ladies always ask me what they should wear. If you want to go for sexy, it doesn't get any better than black, leather and lace.

Real Wedding : Jennifer & Christian

Jennifer & Christian are one of those couples that the instant you meet them, you know you're in the presence of a truly remarkable thing. Their wedding this past November at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club near Annapolis, Maryland, was all about family, friends the little things that were important to them. They met in Hawaii, where Jennifer was a student, and Christian was stationed in the Marines. They became friends, and their relationship blossomed into romance, and pretty soon, they knew they wanted to spend their lives as husband and wife. Sweet little touches were found throughout their wedding; Origami Cranes celebrated Jennifer's Japanese heritage, framed photos of family greeted guests as they arrived, Hawaiian orchids and seashells decorated the tables, and Christian, several groomsmen and his Father were dressed in their military finest.
