Now that the days are longer, the weather is warmer...well not this week...but warmth is coming I know it, it's time to think about SENIOR SESSIONS!  I'm gearing up for senior season 2010 and I am looking for a few Senior Representatives.  Senior Reps will get a free session, 50 promo cards to hand out, 3 sheets of wallets, plus the chance to earn more free goodies for your stunning promo abilities.  If you are a 2010 senior, attend a highschool somewhere around the Grand Rapids/Kalamazoo/Holland area, love sweet photography, want free stuff, and are excited to spread the word about me, Phrené, get in touch soon!  These rep spots will fill up fast.

Trash the Dress Sneak Peek

This past weekend a fellow photographer friend of mine, Gen, and I did a TTD session with Trisha and her sister, Jordan. TTD stands for "trash the dress"... for those of you who live under a rock :) We had wayyyy too much fun, sometimes it's hard for me to believe this is my JOB! Here is a sneak peek image, I'll post more soon I promise. In the meantime check Gen's blog for other fantastic dress trashing images.  Ladies you rocked!

Workshop 3

Last but certainly not least the stunning brides with dramatic lighting.  These were so fun and somewhat out of my comfort zone.  It was a fantastic learning experience and I can't wait to try more with my future bride shoots.  Thank you to Noto's for allowing us to use their wonderful wine cellar.  I am so excited to shoot there again in June,  Jodi  I know we are going to rock your photos!

And the beautiful brides!  I have so many more to post so come back soon to see more!

I am sooo very excited to launch my new blog!!  Yay!!  It's been a long time coming and I have finally found the time to dig into the blogging world.  I can't say I'm much of a blogger, to be honest I've never blogged before.  I don't even check my facebook very often... but this in my sincere promise that I will learn to blog!  I have to say the workshop I attended a few weekends ago was the push I needed to get my blogging in gear.  I went to the "Get Inspired Workshop" with a trio of fabulous photographers Jen Kroll, John with Coastline-Studios, and Holly Henderson.  It was such a great experience to meet other photographers with the same love of photography and passion for weddings as well as pick up new tricks and techniques...just in time to gear up for this exciting wedding season.  So without further a-do here are some images from the workshop!
