Meyer Family | at home on the farm

I am going a bit out of order with this session, but it was easy to get to…and frankly, I couldn’t wait much longer to share cute little Henry!

I had so much fun photographing this family. It was a quicker shoot than I normally have, but hey, we had to get Henry’s dad back in those fields during daylight! I think I won him over with photoshoots by making that happen ;) Quick, easy…and still great photos, what’s better than that?! They were so cute together and about as photogenic as they come…here’s just a few of my favorites…farm family photos

Also, I posted on the Cassidy Dawn Photography facebook page, but I wanted to mention it on here! All evening shoots for October are booked! I still have morning shoots, and a few evenings in September, but fall is almost full…so let me know if you were hoping for a shoot!

**I still have several November shoots available, however, if you’d like your photos in time for Christmas…October is the cut off this year! So we can still do a fall shoot…however, print orders will not be ready in time for Christmas.

Summer, let’s be friends.

Oh, summer. I really, really adore you. Or…I really, really want to.

So far this summer hasn’t felt quite like I think summer is supposed to “feel like”.  You see, my husband is a teacher, so you know what that means…summers off!      **although being a teachers wife, I know that’s not entirely true…the great teachers, like himself…are still working, preparing for the upcoming year and so forth, but it’s a bit less strict time wise.

While it’s been amazing to have dedicated work time during the day while he takes care of Hallie…part of me is actually in my office sulking a little…I mean, sounds like they are having lots of fun ;)

However, all that changes tomorrow!! Summer vacation, here we come!! We are heading up to Michigan for a full week of family time with Justin’s side of the family and I am so excited! Of course, due to an unexpected computer issue, I will be taking more work than I had hoped…but at least I get to stare at my clients cute faces instead of spreadsheets and such…so it’s the fun part of office work ;)

All that being said…I have a few announcements!

I will officially be out of the office today at 5pm until June 25th (Monday is a full day of shoots, so I will be back on Tuesday!). I will be checking in periodically with email & voicemails, but not as much as usual…so patience is appreciated.

Also, we are booking up faster than any year before. We only have a few more dates in July (last 2 weeks) & October…so if you were hoping for either of those months, please email me right away so I can get you on the calendar/list. August & September still have room…but maybe not for long. I am so looking forward to all of these fun sessions :)

I’ll be back soon…and maybe even stick up a blog post or two while I am away! Now, go and enjoy your summer!!

2014 Senior Rep Photo Shoot — the video!!

I am so incredibly excited to finally share this with you!! This year was my first year having Senior Reps, and I went about the entire program a bit different than what is “normal” around here…and frankly…I think we pulled it off ;) I know my Reps had fun…and I, well, I had a blast! I am sure that it helped that I happened to have some of the best upcoming seniors apply for the program. I was only able to choose 10 of the applicants and it was so hard, but let me tell you…I picked one heck of an amazing group of kids.

Enough talking, I’ll do more of that when I post their photos! Here’s the video of my amazing, awesome, sweet, talented, rockin’ 2014 Senior Reps!!!

Stay tuned for more photos from the shoot!! Lots more where that came from ;)

Lemieux Family | Columbus Ohio Family Photography

Holy cute family! I mean, seriously? Aren’t they adorable?! And sweet too…doesn’t get much better! So grateful that they all (almost all ;) traveled in for this session…that always makes me smile. We spent a couple hours walking around Inniswood Metro Garden and I loved talking with them and photographing their interactions. Gosh, my job is so great :) Here’s a few of my favorites from their session!

Adam & Ashley | Leesburg Virginia Wedding Photography

When a bride calls me and asks if I would be willing to travel for weddings…my ears always perk up. Always. I LOVE traveling :) Then, when this particular bride mentioned that her wedding would be just outside Washington DC, I *really* perked up. You see, it’s one of my very favorite cities. We talked details and how she knew my work (she is friends with some of my brides and was at a wedding I photographed 3 years ago!), and by the end of our call…it was set!

The day was perfect, like most weddings of course, but they are all perfect in their own way. The weather was top notch, the vendors were fabulous & the location…stunning! Adam & Ashley are so great together and one of my favorite parts of the day was listening to her talk about him before they saw each other…there is nothing like the excitement couples have before they see each other. Whether it be a first look, or down the aisle, it’s really one of the best parts of the wedding in my book.

Most of my brides become close friends with me, it’s quite common (what can I say, they rock!)…but Ashley…she’s different. We were already trying to find ways to need to be in contact with each other after her weddings goodies have been mailed out. I mean, I am going to miss her emails ;) Turns out, she said the same thing about me…I have a feeling we won’t loose touch ;)

Adam & Ashley, you two were made for each other. Thank you for the honor of bringing us out to photograph your day…it means more to us than you will ever know!!

Ashley’s dad passed away very unexpectedly a few short months before her wedding. Here is his shirt around her bouquet. Sweetest touch ever.
