r.o.c.k in the USA.

So, this post was titled according to the song I was singing at the time of posting. Honestly, I have no idea why. I am random like that I guess.

If I start to think about it, though, mayyyyybe it has to do with the fact that they are about to embark on a tour of the country speaking in 21 different cities. Spread the Love tour kicks off January 2010 in Boston and will extend across the country for 2 months. I'll be on board for part of the tour so make sure to come out and say HI!

Anyway, J&M (and asst Julia!) needed some band-esque promo shots for some tour publications so we ran to downtown New Haven and shot it up... check 'em out.

annnnddd.... The last time I shot J&

revisiting the archives I

I was rummaging through old archives and found a few images I thought I would share. They are totally random with no real rhyme or reason, mostly just forgotten images that deserved their moment in one way or another.

and so it begins....

This is in the infamous Salton Sea taken in '06 on a trip with some of my people favorites [see below]. (I found the following picture in the same folder!)

While out in California a few weeks ago, I did some commercial shots for Little Miss Madison. When we scheduled the shoot, I didn't take into consideration Daylight Savings so we had all of 30 minutes of daylight. Regardless, she rocked it.

Her mom says she is only 10 but I'm convinced she is going on 25. I mean, she has read all the Twilight books and her binder is plastered with half naked men (technically they are warewolves.) She even schooled me on boys which I obviously need help with ;)
When I was 10, I did archery, climbed trees, made up songs and accompanying dances (a few of which I still remember but good luck getting me to demonstrate), and I even recall running away from a boy that tried to kiss me once. Haha... it was a different time and I wasn't nearly as cool.

Madison has already graced a few shows on Disney as well as rocks an amazing set of vocal chords. Its amazing how young they start nowadays 'eh?

Good luck lady... it was a pleasure shooting your face and I have no doubt you will go far ;)

This last two are my favorite

(ps) Can you believe this little rockstar is also a blackbelt?!

barn concert | Hanneke Cassel

Last month we held a concert up in the barn and I totally forgot I had even taken pictures!
You may remember the barn from THIS SHOOT but it's since been renovated to accommodate guests for such events.
Last month, Hanneke Cassel (fiddler extraordinaire) volunteered her time to come play for us as a charity fundraiser event benefitting a Kenyan Orphanage called One Hope Many Homes which helps educate and care for young girls. [The place was packed and fit WAY more people than I imagined!]
This was a blending of some of my favorite things (Marblehead, folk music, music in general, people, and children's charities) so you can imagine how excited I was!

The plan is to hold concerts like this on a regular basis so if you're ever in the area and want to take in some good music and meet new people, come on out. Next up is a Christmas concert :: date TBA.

I love the little guy who thought the music was too loud!

Karin + Matt | Little Compton, RI

I met Matt and Karin at Matt's sister's fabulous Indian wedding last year after they had just got engaged. Shortly after I had the honor of being invited to be apart of their fabulous celebration on Karin's family's estate in Rhode Island. I love shooting weddings all within the family because you already have relationships with the family members.... (So great to see you again Melissa + Dev!)

So allow me to share a little sneak peek into their day....
If you prefer the whole story, **click here**. :)

you knew tying a sash could be so stinkin' confusing?!

Karin's veil has been passed down through generations! It was first worn in 1894. I am such a sucker for traditional/sentimental stuff like this

so much emotion between Karin and her daddy

Matt is such a goof.... I mean seriously, this photo shows his personality very much how I remember it.

Operation Sniper Proposal #2 | amy + alvaro

Two sniper proposals in one week!
It's such an honor to be a part of such an occasion. I always express how honored I feel to be a part of a couple's wedding celebration but to take that a step further and invite me to the actual proposal makes the entire experience that much more wonderful.

This event took a team of people so someone grabbed a few photos of the crazy outfit I created. I hid in the most awesome fort of dried palm leaves, but to further camouflage I channeled Adam & Eve with the palm dress and crown. Luckily Amy didnt see a thing and was totally surprised when she returned to her parents home and was greeted by a slideshow of the proposal.
