This is super overdue by now but I wanted to make sure I introduced my sister, Ginger to everyone. When Sarah was pregnant in 2012 I knew then that she was going to want to take a least a year off from working weddings so that she could spend more time at home with Chloe. In combination with the decision to take on fewer clients and having to train and find another associate photographer 2012 was a really stressful one for us. But Ginger was there for us. She stepped in not having any professional training in photography and took to my hands on training and accepted my criticism at times and has just become an amazing associate photographer. Any professional will tell you that when you have a great 2nd shooter it really makes a huge difference. Just having someone who you can trust in and who will be covering your back at all times make the stress of working weddings so much more fun and relaxed.
Thank you so much Ginger for your help and support the past 2 years! I can’t wait to see what 2014 has in store for you! Sarah + I are supper appreciative of you! a+s
The family + I finally got a chance to get away for a few days. I literally had to force us to do this because we have been talking about getting away for several months now and with wedding season quickly approaching it was now or not until Summer time. We picked The Inn at Perry Cabin because we wanted to go somewhere close by and quiet so that we could just escape and do nothing but spend time with Chloe, eat and sleep. Here are some analog exposures we took during our trip. I used our Fujifilm 210 Wide Format camera on this trip. There’s just something about analog film that I continue to love and it just keeps me shooting.
The resort was very comfortable and offered us a cosy room with a fireplace in the room. The view of the water from our balcony was so perfect and tranquil. The service and staff in the hotel were amazingly friendly and felt like family during our short stay. Everything we had to eat was amazing. There are 2 restaurants at the resort and both are stellar however, both are on the pricy side so if you are looking for a quick and cheaper food option i would recommend taking the short drive to town. Our stay was completely off-season and in the middle of the week and a lot of businesses were closed but at the same time there was no wait anywhere we went and it was like the resort, town and surrounding area was our private place to drive around and explore.
We so needed this and are feeling recharged and ready for the up coming wedding season! a+s
