Jackie and Darcy's engagement photography session

Wow, this post was a bit late... nearly a month ago we took Jackie and Darcy to Griesbach (I swear if I keep taking pictures there, someone will just give me a house there, right?) to do their engagement session. They were tons of fun and brightened up the drab landscape (someone really must have stolen the leaves) and their photos turned out wonderfully. We really look forward to shooting their wedding in June. Here's a quick peek at some of the best shots of the day and you can see the whole slideshow at www.envphotography.com/jackiedarcy/

Laurier Park with Janice, Jason and Alora

This past Saturday, October 20, 2007, was spent in Laurier Park with Janice, Jason and Alora, snapping some great photos on the chilly weather. We started the morning watching Alora make friends with all of the birds - I'm still surprised by how close they were willing to get to people! At one point, a small army had swooped down upon us - I think they just wanted to be in the photos too.
It seems that Autumn was being uncooperative with us since there were almost no leaves to be found. Luckily this fabulous family is colorful enough on their own, and they didn't need the leaves to make them pretty.
We worked our way around the park and I am still shocked at how Jason was able to climb huge trees (you might not be able to tell from the photos, but the lowest branches were 8-9 feet from the ground and he didn't need a boost).
I had a great time and the pictures turned out well. Here's a few to tempt you toward the slideshow at www.envphotography.com/jja/

working up an apetite for Thanksgiving dinner with Denise

Ok, I have to admit that I haven't quite finished editing the photos, but here are a few to keep you wanting more. Denise takes pictures well, although I know she will argue otherwise....

Slideshow is here! Woohoo! I finally buckled down and completed it... geesh, Denise looks really good in these pictures... and here she is! See her slideshow at www.envphotography.com/denise/

I swear someone stole the leaves - Griesbach Part 3

Last Sunday, October 7th, we headed off to Griesbach one last time to take advantage of the beautiful red leaves. We were lucky in that the temperatures were in the upper teens and Christine and her daughter Achaila joined us to bask in the sun. We were on a hunt to find the red leaves that lined 97th St, but they somehow mysteriously disappeared. By disappeared, I don't mean that the leaves fell and were now a glorious blanket of red over the grass - no. The leaves were gone entirely! It was like someone came in and raked up every last trace of that red gold and was hording it somewhere! We were out of luck. That didn't dampen our spirits as we took full advantage of the lake and the other pretty trees in the area.
Christine and Achaila were a dream to shoot - they were fun, adventurous, and the camera loved them both, that was fairly obvious. They were so much fun that I was even convinced to climb a tree as well, something I haven't done in a good 20 years. Here's a few shots of the day... you can see the rest at www.envphotography.com/achailachristine/
