New Life - Jaysn Joseph

Since my dear friend Jay told me that he and his better half, Krystal, were going to have a baby, I've been eagerly awaiting the little one's arrival. Last week I got the excited call from Jay. He was ecstatic and could barely catch his breath as he blurted out all the details. Happy, healthy, and beautiful; the baby was perfect. When I got to the hospital the next day Jay and Krystal were overcome with joy, and in complete awe of their new addition. As I held his precious little frame in my arms I was overwhelmed with hope that comes from new life; a little bundle of unlimited possibilities. I only finally let go to take a few snaps. Here's little Jaysn at 16 hours old.

Abram & Abigail

On one of the most beautiful fall days I can remember, I got together with two adorable little spirits, Abram & Abigail. It was a perfect day, the leaves were brilliant bursts of red, gold and rust, the sun was shining on blue skies, and it was a record-breaking, 80 degrees! During our photo session Abram skipped through the grass throwing leaves and looking for bugs while Abby searched for grass and twigs to put in her little 8 month old mouth. It was an amazing experience for me to see the season new again through their young eyes. Here are a few of my favorites from the day.

BOO!

I couldn't let Halloween pass without putting up at least one ridiculous picture from the festivities. Ketchup and Mustard (aka Jason and Ali) hosted a rockin party over the weekend. Due to an embarassing addiction to VH1's "Rock of Love", Tom had his heart set on going as Bret Michaels from 80's hair band Poison. I admit I was quite addicted to the trashy reality show too, so it was decided; we'd be Bret and his rock star groupie. Here's a few pics from the point and shoot camera before things got crazy.




Happy Halloween blog world!

James & Thurka: 3 Photographers, 2 Ceremonies, One Incredible Day

When Tomas Flint asked me to join him in shooting James and Thurka's wedding I gladly agreed. With one Catholic ceremony, one Hindu ceremony, five wardrobe changes, and a fast paced schedule I knew it would be a challenging day, but definitely one not to be missed. Tom also recruited the amazingly talented Erich Camping to ensure that we caught every important detail. The Flint-Camping-Marsh combination set out to seamlessly cover every minute of the day and achieved a totally awesome result. Three cameras capturing different angles and perspectives of one incredible day. The joining of two families and two cultures made for a fantastically diverse and exciting event. I couldn't help but be fascinated by the Hindu wedding ceremony. They had it all: drums, horns, incense, flowers, and fire. After 14 hours we emerged feeling triumphant and with a stack of spectacular images.

On A Path

I just had to take a minute to give a shout out to one of my biggest inspirations, Tomas Flint. Tom is constantly praised by grateful brides and grooms for his commitment to unique and flawless images and bringing amazing energy to their wedding day. Their family and friends never miss an opportunity to express their gratitude for tireless efforts from the beginning of the day to the last dance of the night. Working alongside him, I have been fortunate to witness and be motivated by his passion for his work. Rochester magazine, the Insider, wasn't going to miss an opportunity to highlight such an incredible talent either. They've featured him in their most recent issue.


With each step, great things keep happening. He's on a path, and he's unstoppable!
So proud of you Tom!

Destination: Geneva On The Lake

Nicole & Mike
With their adorable little Benjamin and a few cherished friends and family, Nicole and Mike had a sweetly intimate wedding at the lovely Geneva On The Lake Resort. From the beginning it was clear that Mike and Nicole share a bond with each other that extends across the people they love most. As their handful of friends and family looked on, Mike and Nicole spoke the vows they had written for each other. The beauty of their words and the love they share brought everyone to tears. Their two lives rightfully and perfectly joined marking a 'coming together' of everyone. Since it was such a small gathering Tom and I were immediately welcomed into their family. We strolled the gardens, raised our glasses during their toast on the boat ride on Seneca Lake, and shared their candlelight dinner. Most importantly, I got to witness two people, with their loved ones, celebrating the relationships that mean the most to them. Nicole and her sister shared a dance while their mother held little Benjamin. Mikes best friend gave a speech that brought everyone to tears, again. Over an elegant and delicious dinner, everyone laughed and shared stories of their long, colorful histories together. Everyone should be so lucky to have a tight group of friends and family in which love circles all around. I feel grateful just to have been near it.















































Many thanks the super-fired-up Tomas Flint for bringing me along, continually inspiring me, and catching this sweet shot of me on the train tracks that day.

Michael Turned 2

It feels like just yesterday that my sister called to tell me to get on the next flight to NYC because the baby was coming fast. Of course I jumped from my desk and ran, literally, to catch the next flight. At the hospital we all waited anxiously, for little Michael Philip, my first nephew, to be born. Somehow two years have flown by since that beautiful day and I'm amazed at how much he's grown. With each visit he's bigger, smarter and full of boundless energy. Now he's busy. Busy playing cars and guitar. Busy running up and down the stairs; opening doors and closing them, and opening and closing, and, well, let's just say it's hard to keep up with him. He also learned how to say my name since he was last here. Is there anything sweeter than hearing that little voice calling your name? He's a little monster, as all little boys are, but he melts my heart and lights up everyone that's around him. I want to keep him the way he looks in these pictures, to freeze time and keep him a sweet little angel forever. Don't grow up too fast little one!

They Stand Together

A few weeks ago I got a call from my father. He wanted to create a special anniversary gift for his wife; a picture of two trees they pass on the drive home from trips to Niagara Falls. Though I didn't immediately understand the significance of the trees, I gladly agreed. It wasn't until today when discussing printing and framing options that I learned the significance of the two trees. He explained how the they stand together in the open field and how it made him think of Karen and him. Standing firmly, side by side. I was touched at his sentimentality; 14 years together and they're still one of the happiest couples I know. Happy Anniversary Dad & Karen! I hope you both love the picture as much as I do.



Another set of two standing together that I discovered in the fields near the trees. They were too pretty to ignore.

Stash Bash '07

It all started with a mustache and a dream. Lindsay was browsing around Archimage when she stumbled upon a package of fake stashes. Of course we had to find use for them, and since summer has been insanely busy we dedicated last Sunday as a day for ridiculous fun (aka Stash Bash 2007). Of course we were camera happy early in the day and the pictures prove it. I swiped a few images Tom and I snapped from his blog.

Thanks Tom for the sweet pics of me and the girls!
