I must be crazy for tackling this project during wedding season...but, the new blog site is up and running. I love it, and hope you do, too. The new site is more representative of my style of photography and a better showcase for the previews and features that I post to the blog. Check out the new blog site.

And while I am making announcements, the proofing site and system is changing for weddings and portraits. Eventually sports and events will move to the new site...but one project at a time. Through customer feedback, I took all your frustrations and suggestions in mind when making this decision. The new site features a faster way to sort through and view the proofs, allows you to look at more detail of your proofs, and is way less complicated than the old site. It is a work in process at the moment, with many enhancements and features to be added. It is still wedding season after all. I hope to have all the kinks worked out by the new year. In the meantime, all proofs are still at the old site. Any links I sent you for your proofs, still works and all your proofs are still there. Currently I have only the last wedding (Amber and Nelson) posted on the new site. All future portrait proofs and weddings will post to the new proof site. All the links to proofs on the websites and blog point you to the new home for proofs. There is a link on the new blog for proofs that posted prior to today on the old site. That is listed in the "links" button at the top of the blog.

As always if you have trouble finding your proofs or blog post, just give me a call or send me an email. I appreciate all the help, feedback, suggestions, and your patience through this process. I like to stay current with technology, but make it an enjoyable / easy process for you. - Cheryl

Amber and Nelson

I photographed Amber and Nelson's wedding last weekend. They are such an awesome couple. I couldn't wait to edit their images. But as I was going through them, it was almost impossible to narrow down my favorites for this blog post. the end I couldn't narrow down to a reasonable number for the blog and decided to design a gorgeous 14x11 album to print for the studio. Amber and Nelson have been off in Jamaica enjoying their honeymoon, and I have been dying to post these. Here were my favorite images from their fabulous wedding day:

Amber and Nelson, thank you so much for including me on your wedding day. I am so glad that I met you guys. I wish you a lifetime of fun and love. - Cheryl

Alicia, NHS Senior of 2010

I first met Alicia years ago at her uncle's wedding. Since them I've been photographing her in the Flag Corp of the Marching Band. Hard to believe she will be graduating this year. Even though we eventually just ran out of daylight, we took advantage of the gorgeous weather this past weekend for her senior style session. Here are my favorites:

Good luck with the remainder of your senior year, Alicia. I had a lot of fun shooting your senior style session! - Cheryl

Becca, Brent & the kids

Bec and Brent drove up this past weekend for a family portrait session. It was actually my first time to see my great-niece, Kailin. Who is the way! For the most part we just let Landon and Kailin play and captured some great images of them. I love their images, it was hard to narrow down to my favorites. But after much they are:

You guys have a beautiful family. I am so happy for you! - Cheryl

Gretchen & Cliff e-session

I met Gretchen and Cliff at the park on a beautiful fall afternoon for their e-session. It was my first time to meet them both, but as we talked we know a lot of the same people. Thanks to Cari and Whitney for their referral. I really enjoyed getting to know them and photographing them. They are soooo photogenic! I cannot wait for their October 2010 wedding! Here are my favorites from their session:

Thanks for driving over to Newport to do your session. I had a blast hanging out with you guys. And, I am so excited about photographing your wedding! - Cheryl
