Introducing my new cuzzy!

I call him Nano Cuzz (because I call his big sister Mini Cuzz), but you guys can call him Daniel. I took a few shots of my cousin’s family hanging out in a rare sunny day in England. Daniel is 9 weeks old, and Mini is 3. Welcome to the family, little man!

This is my mini cuzz…

OK a lot of mini. But expect many more photos of Daniel as he grows up!

Memories

Aren’t the photos we love from our childhood the ones where we’re in our element? My personal fav is me playing dress up in my mother’s heels, with red nail polish and lipstick all over my face. Conrad likes the ones where I’m making a pouty face (that I apparently still make today), and I love the photo of him, all tuckered out in a sleeping face plant, tiny little sneakers in the air, on his family’s old couch. My brother loves the ones of him driving his big wheels (“big yellow car,” he loved that thing so much). Well, I went to a beautiful park in London with this family who are a year in to a 3 year stay here.

So I hope this little guy grows up and loves these photos at his park in London. I hope he always remembers the wooden sandbox train and the snail bench. I hope he never forgets riding around London on his scooter with his Union Jack backpack, and I hope he loves all these little faces.

Washington DC Wedding

Finally. FINALLY! The DC wedding is on our blog. Say hello to Blaine (I know!) and Michelle. They have both served in the United States military, and she is on active duty, as were so many of their wedding guests. They make me proud to be an American, and I’m so glad we got to skip across the pond (Atlantic) and shoot their incredible wedding. On a personal note, this trip to DC was deeply moving to both Conrad and myself, as we felt the first pangs of homesickness the second we stepped off the plane into our homeland. 

That’s me below, happy as a bug and feeling patriotic. (I would’ve drawn a flag, but I only had 2 iphones, mmkay?)

This collection focused on a few things that other photographers normally wouldn’t focus on, and I think that’s what’s keen and creative about the album in its entirety. The attention given to the couple’s shoes, the bride’s skirt, and the DOF concentrating on the fountain with people faded in the background —Very nice. Cheers!

Beautiful photographs! Nice work!

Autumn in Hyde Park

Question. What do you get when you cross a two-year-old who knows how to pose for the camera with Hyde Park in Autumn? The perfect family shoot, that’s what.

He is too much! 
Slow pokes…

Paris

Oopsies, it’s been a while since we blogged some pictures. Let’s fix that, shall we?

For our 4th anniversary, we took a train to Paris! I actually made a solid effort not to trap myself behind my camera the entire time, so perhaps these photos are a somewhat different view of Paris. We only photographed what we thought was worth it, the rest we’ll save for postcards. Although, I wish I had photographed the food. Because it was amazing and now I really miss it.

I did not name my bike Chanel, she was already named as if she was always meant to be mine.
For our anniversary, we had dinner and watched the sun set from the rooftop at the Pompidou.
On Gargoyles: Do you think there was some kind of architect get-together where someone said, “Hey guys, we should add sort of gutter to our buildings to divert the rainwater.” And then some other guy said, “Yeah! And and lets also make them scary as hell.”
We kept finding ourselves back at the garden in front of the Louvre. It was such a nice place to just sit and read, so we ended up spending a lot of time there.

 

 

Ladies and gentlemen, The Mona Lisa.

 

 

Versailles was OVER THE TOP.
Arc De Triomphe
Ok fine, just a few postcard shots.
The sunrise as we left Paris. The last photo I took on our way to the train.

There’s a lot of point of view shots from below, drawing attention to the grandeur of Parisian structures. I love what you did with the aperture and shutter speed settings to achieve such kind of detail with the close-up shots.

Love them so much! So even though you limited yourselves…how many did you take? My favorites? The first one on the bike and the one with you Megan, with the Black Rapid strap over your shoulder-not sure where you are. Next time we visit we’ll be twins with our camera straps…but your camera stuff will be much nicer! Love ya!

Love, love, love! I might need a print of the vertacal Sunset with Sacre Coeur in the background. That’s my favorite place in Paris. It looks like you had a wonderful & romantic trip.
