A few weeks ago I was contacted by Gray Construction to photograph the groundbreaking of the new Champion Petfoods facility to be located in Auburn, Kentucky. Not only did I enjoy spending time with Governor Steve Beshear and Kentucky State Representative Martha Jane King, but I was able to be part of this outstanding project.
I am very excited for the economic development that Champion Petfoods will bring to the Auburn community and the surrounding area. What’s more – I’m excited about a company that believes in using local, fresh ingredients that are biologically appropriate.
To celebrate expanding this Canadian business in our area, Champion Petfoods brought a Maple tree all the way from Canada to plant on-site.
In addition to the Maple tree and Champion Petfoods representatives, this Gray Construction groundbreaking project celebrated both local Kentucky and Canadian specialties. All vendors were from the area (including yours truly) – with ice cream from Chaney’s Dairy Barn, wine from Reid’s Livery Winery, and more. I’ll be sure to update on the local vendors and performers when I get through all of my media. Local and Canadian bands joined the stage for an evening of delicious food, amazing music, and fun.
Last night I had the pleasure of photographing the Dueling Pianos event at Lost River Cave. My family is a huge fan of Lost River Cave as we live very close and my boys love spending time in their children’s Nature Center. I highly recommend you check it out.
Yesterday’s event was a fundraiser for the Friends of Lost River Cave called Dueling Pianos.
My talented and beautiful friend, Charlotte, helped with this event. She asked me to photograph it, and I was honored. This second annual event helped to raise money for the recent and also upcoming developments on this gorgeous property. Supporting organizations and individuals gathered in the cave to feast upon dinner and raise money for this worthy cause. An introductory video reminded guests that not only does nature need us to respect it, but we need nature to survive. The physical and mental health benefits for adults and children alike are endless. After the video, guests had the opportunity to pledge funds toward Friends of Lost River Cave, receiving a gorgeous carved bird for their generosity.
Guests then had the ability to request songs and make donations to the Dueling (Piano) duo from Michigan. The evening’s musical stylings ranged from classic rock to classical – and everything in between. My personal favorite was a mashup of Bohemian Rhapsody with Let it Go from Disney’s Frozen. Here’s a quick sneak peak at some of the beautiful details and enthusiastic guests.
Brittany and I went to school together and had several mutual friends – but we’d never met until yesterday! We were introduced through a group for moms, and I was so honored when she asked me if I’d like to shoot her family’s pictures before their family of 3 becomes a family of 4! They came all the way from Fort Knox to visit with me!
As you can imagine, Miss Adalyn was the center of attention! She was so adorable, and gave me mega baby fever. She’s 23 months old and will keep mom and dad on their toes when her baby sister arrives!
We met at a local park and went for a walk. Adalyn was not interested in sitting still! We found a neat old barn and looked for “horsies” – but she was not impressed by my pathetic horse impression. Unfortunately I left my secret weapon at home!
While Dad tried to catch Adalyn, I snuck away with mom for a few shots on her own.
Not to be left out, Adalyn sat on her baby sister for a big smooch with mom!
Little Miss was pretty much done at that point (Mom refers to her as a two-nager which I found hysterical), so we packed up. On our way out we stopped by this awesome fence because I have always wanted to shoot photos there! Everyone was in red, white, and blue and the 4th of July will be here soon – so I was super excited when they placated me!
In case you haven’t seen the dozens of awful phone pictures all over our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and blog posts… we recently finished out our basement into a studio. We’ve got a small infant room as well as a larger lobby-type space that can accomodate large groups.
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of having our first client come try it out! Kate just turned 1, and I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter baby to break in the new space! You may remember her from her family photos last fall. Feel free to check out their 2012 family photos as well.
But here’s our star:
I had such a good time with Jessica and Robert with a little mini-shoot a few weeks ago. I meant to share these sooner but I’ve been shooting non-stop!
Jessica and Robert are planning to get married next April. They met in downtown Bowling Green at a pub, so what better place to shoot a few photos of these lovebirds than in downtown BG. I love the urban feel to these shots. I’ve always wanted to do a more urban-centric shoot, but BG is not exactly a metropolis.
One of the most frequently asked questions I hear is “What should I wear for my portrait session?” Whether it’s a mother preparing for her child’s one year photos or a couple excited about announcing their engagement with a special photograph, many of the tips and tricks for what to wear are the same.
