engagement photos coming soon...
I'd like to say I'll come down with the baby-gimmies, but lucky for me [and Eddie], I only have the puppy-gimmies :)
Our good friend Mike joined in on the fun as well. We were waiting by this tiny little bump in the path and I'd yell at all the bikers to jump it. Some would laugh, some would ignore, and some would jump. Mike jumped. Riders should be more like that. Entertain me, please.
Our other good friend, Michelle, ran in the trail run and placed third in her division! She's literally incredible aaand beautiful. Her big trail run is on the 28th & I guarantee she'll be fantastic. This girl inspires me to reach for the stars; don't know what I'd do without her.
To see more photos from the race, take a look at Eddie's blog.
In other related news:
Eddie ran the California International Marathon this past December with a group of runners supporting De:terminence; his first time being fully involved in helping a cause. It sparked a fire in him to do more, and decided to pursue the next step. His goal: to raise funds and awareness for the children at Oak Ridge while competing in the Xterra triathlons. I'll be there on his journeys, documenting everything I can. You can also view his blog here to see his progress [he'll be updating this weekend].
She had an antique rocking chair [Matt's grandma's old chair] in her trunk that was on it's way to the dump. I inherited it and let my creative mind flow. Besides the two up top, these are my favorite photos. The rocking chair makes them perfect.
These two love birds are tying the knot in June 09. This shoot was a breeze - the chemistry between them is undeniable. Dan works in the US Air Force & Stephanie is a special education teacher finishing her Masters. Our session was shot where Dan proposed to Steph in October. I rarely had to give them directions; these two were in their own world [which makes it extremely easier to capture true moments]. How cute are they!?
ps-if you'd like to become part of my adventure, I'll gladly accept.
