“If you could only love enough, you could be the most powerful person in the world.”
I love Tanya and Roger slideshow. Andrei Chioibasu the guy behind my website (he does an amazing work, check back soon for a new look.) did a beautiful job on creating this for them:
And here we have some new images from their beautiful day!
It is said that the best things come in small packages. Tanya and Roger choose to have a small family wedding. Yes i know, just over a hundred guests at your wedding does not not sound small but for a Romanian wedding it is considered strict family only wedding because an average wedding is more then 300 guests. It was a really relaxed and beautiful day with a lot of wonderful people! We went to Ann Arbor for the portraits for about 40 minutes then we choose to be on time at the reception so we scheduled to meet 2 days after for more. Here is a preview of the day and more images to come, so do not forget to check back in a few days! Congrats Tanya and Roger.
This little one was the life of the party!
As i promised to all of you i am trying my best to keep up with the posting, despite being so behind with posting with all the sessions i had lately.
This is a very special family for us, they have been friends of my husband before i met him, i think actually since he was little. I met Elena before our wedding and she is such an amazing woman, with an amazing story. She found she had cancer a few weeks ago and we decided to take a few pictures with her family, nothing formal,but capturing them and heir love for each other. It was really cold outside so we could not be there for more then a few minutes, but we manage to get a few darling images. This amazing mommy with an amazing heart is full of life, beautiful smile, soft voice, and a looot of love that she shares with everybody around her! In fact i arrived early for our photo-shoot, and she was not home, but at the hospital because she heard her friend just delivered and she had to go and visit and bring some food for the new mommy. I am always impressed with how well behaved the children are, and she is homeschooling all of them, growing a garden, cooking all those amazing meals, and always with a baby in her arms. We are praying for you and God be on your side Elena!
A professional photographer and breast cancer survivor Lidia is an amazing person. Kind, talented and with a huge heart she is also the founder of Tiny Sparrow Foundation , an amazing non profit organization that provides lasting memories through the beautiful art of photography to the families with children who are facing life threatening illnesses.
Tonight i was surfing the web and her actions caught my interest. I downloaded the free collection and i gave it a try to one of my beauty portraits. It is photographed with natural light.
Family! This is such a beautiful word, and Balmus family really impressed me. Mrs. and Mr. Balmus have eight children: beautiful, well raised and full of life. We had our session last month at Stoney Creek Park and as most of you know photographing a large family takes time and quite some energy, but this was not the case. The children were so happy, well behaved and full of life that we finished everything in about 2 hours. I think i might have lost a pound or two, but the outcome was soo worth it!! What mother can not be so proud of her children ? I can not wait to see the portraits on their walls.
Two days before our session Jennifer called me for a late fall family session. We had to act fast because the weather got cold fast, and we had three little beauties to work with outdoors. The kids did a fantastic job behaving and being so nice. We had a loot of fun. Too sad the Daddy could not make it being out of state, but we will be waiting for you next time Daddy! What a beautiful family!
