Just this morning we were greeted with tweets from the very sweet Stacie Francombe of Get Married TV & Magazine that the Fall 2010 Cover has been revealed! This spectacular design was all the creation of premier event designer, Sasha Souza with Sasha Souza Events and we were so very humbled to be asked to photograph this cover. So without further ado!!!
We are over the moon to see our good friend and colleague Sarah Lane, featured on the hip and happening blog, The Creative Mama! Yippee!! Here is a link to the article and interview and you can see her gorgeous work with senior portraits as well!! Way to go Sarah!! Here’s a cute little portrait Damion did of Sarah in the midst of one of her senior portrait shoots!
The arrival of the NAPCP (National Association of Professional Child Photographers) convention in Napa, brought with it lots of great photographers and fun people! (AND a rockin business card from founders Kyu & Alice Parks–I am so in love with their circular letterpress card…and Alice too (what a sweetie!) Although we weren’t involved with the conference, Damion had a chance to help out a little with some techie issues while Dane Sanders and Tamara Lackey were capturing a live podcast from Judd’s Hill winery (luckily just down the road from us!) for AskDane.com! AskDane.com is a great site where Dane invites noted photographers to come share on topics that are meant to help out every photographer and provide them with information on how to do things in a wiser and better way. His interview for this podcast was with Tamara Lackey, who owns a very successful studio out of North Carolina and whose article was recently featured in Rangefinder magazine. This link will take you to the podcast where they were discussing “Life and Work Balance.” Tamara shared some great tips about being able to focus (not multitasking) and how to structure your day to get more accomplished…ahem…don’t check your email until 10:00. Ouch, we are still working on that one. If you haven’t seen the webcast, I would really encourage you to check them out as Dane does a great job of taking questions and tweets right on the air and will try to get your questions answered as soon as he can…great resource guys! Lastly, thank you to Dane, Tamara, Alice, Sarah, and all of the other photogs for being so welcoming to Damion and our family at dinner! So nice to meet you all!
Dane checking your tweets and questions!

Just wanted to say Happy Birthday to the main man around this house!! You’re the best !! We love you and are so glad you came into the world on this day–what a day to celebrate! Love, Your girls!
This has to be one of my all-time favorite images that Damion has ever taken! Everything about this is picture perfect: the composition, the color contrasts, the gorgeous florals by Kathy Hoffman, you couldn’t ask for a more perfect subject! We are so fortunate to have been able to document the details for this GORGEOUS wedding designed by Rebecca Feeney with Custom Event Group. She is an amazing designer who completely creates custom weddings from the ground up. Every aspect of CEG events are completely unique and no detail is left without her fingerprint!
