Nicholas and Kendal - Columbus Ohio portrait photographer

Last week, I got to spend some quality time with my dear friend and former bride Shawnda and take some photographs of her beautiful and growing family. In addition to precocious Kendal Mae, there's a new baby brother, Nicholas. Kendal has become a laugh riot since I last saw her, with a big vocabulary and adorably funny personality, and baby Nicholas is as sweet and pleasant as he could be. I loved hanging out with them all and here are a few of my favorites from our session in their home.

Cakes for a Cause - Sassafras Bakery

Last night, I attended my very first silent auction, and boy did I pick a tasty one! My wedding planner friend Emilie Duncan and my new wedding planner friend Kasey Conyers hosted Cakes for a Cause to benefit Mid-Ohio Foodbank during their annual Operation Feed campaign. What a great, successful evening it was. Lots of bids and lots of money raised to provide meals for those in need.

And I'm happy to report that after much stalking and hovering, and a last-minute sniper bid, I won the coveted Signature Apple Pie baked by the fabulous AJ Perry of
Sassafras Bakery. Yum Yum.

While there were lots of photographers shooting away last night, I left my camera at home to concentrate on fun conversations with friends and colleagues, but today when I broke out my prize, I had to take a couple of snaps as I munched the first delectable piece (the first of many, I might add!). This is one sweet pie, so if you're ever in need for a homebaked fix, look up Sassafras Bakery.

Feast your eyes:

Michala's Sweet 16 - The Columbus Athenaeum

Michala's mother Dana threw a Sweet 16 party like none other, complete with a mime, a "living" tree (actually a potted man covered in shrubbery and lights), a photo booth, and two caricature artists. Friends and family came from all over to wish Michala a happy birthday and enjoy all the sumptuous food and great music.

Happy birthday, Michala!

February Anniversaries

I know - it's March, not February, and I'm late with the anniversaries! Without going into too much detail, let's just say that February was crazy and I'm glad it's over. So, onto the task at hand . . .

I want to send very Happy Anniversary wishes to my two February 2009 couples who've now been married for a year.

First is Emily and Don, married at Immaculate Conception with their reception at the Greek Orthodox hall. I'm very excited to be seeing them again when I photograph Emily's MOH's wedding this coming June.

Next up is Steph and Greg, best friends of Charley and John, my couple from 2005 already now. Steph and Greg had their ceremony and reception at The Sherrie Gallerie, a beautiful and unique spot for being married.

Congratulations to all of you!
