The Harnish Family

So Izzy found this little spot and thought it would be a great place for a family portrait session. Permission obtained from the property owner, we set out the end of October and couldn't have gotten a more perfect fall day at a beautiful location. Here are some of my favorties from that day.

Here's Logan and Marissa
The whole family...

Ashley and James

So back in the beginning of October, I teamed up again with Erin from Graystone Photography for Ashley and James's wedding in Long Branch, NJ. Erin and I met at 5am on that Saturday and headed for the Garden State. After four hours of driving, including missing our exit on NJ Turnpike because we were talking too much and stopping for breakfast down the street from Great Adventure, we finally made it to Long Branch. It was a beautfiul day at a beautiful location with a beautiful and funny couple who were ready for anything! Here's just a few images from that day.
For some more, be sure to pop over to Graystone Photographys blog and check them out!

Jason & Family

A few Saturday's ago, I had an opportunity to hang out with Jason and his two daughers, Renee and Alyssa, and Jason's sister Kim and her two children, Victoria and Matthew. Despite a little sprinkle of rain that forced us indoors, we had a great time!
Here's the whole crew!

Poor Matthew didn't want to have anything to do with the camera once we went inside.
He was happy wearing his uncle's hard hat.
Jason and Kim, loving sibblings!


We had to do funny faces!


Kim, with Victoria and Matthew.


Jason with Renee and Alyssa.


...and the girls having a little fun at their dad's expense.



But that's allowed because they love each other so much!


Renee and Alyssa


All four kids, hanging out. I love Matt's smile in this one!


Thanks everyone!

Dover International

So I had an opportunity to tag along with my friend Matt to Dover International this weekend. He is a mechanic for the Joe Gibbs #18 Camping World Series team, which was driven by Matt DeBenedetto on Friday. We got there around 9am on Friday, and with awesome views from the top of the trailer in the pits, to actually standing with the crew for the pit stops on pit road, it was an awesome day with awesome views and awesome photos.



Here is the view from the top of the trailer.




Here is the driver, Matt DeBenedetto.



And here is the team waiting their turn on pit road for qualifying, which they qualified 1st.



A cool shot of the car as it waits for the race to start.

And since I got to stand with the press photographers.....



The sprint cup drivers lined up along pit row for their qualifying.


#9 Kasey Kahne


#24 Jeff Gordon


#20 Joey Logano

#29 Kevin Harvick


I loved this shot, though it's a little blurry. It shows how close I was to everything. I was literally sitting on the wall in the pit and the cars were passing this close to me. Way cool!





Thanks Matt B. for having me come down and hang out with you guys! You all were lots of fun and a whole lot of funny to be around. I hope we can do it again soon! Just be sure to carry your whistle with you! You never know when you'll need it!

Toni Mark and Allie

My best friend Toni came to visit this weekend with her long time boyfriend Mark, and her daughter (my god daughter) Allie. I grabbed a few pics of them and thought I'd share them. Both Toni and Allie were in my wedding almost two years ago. See below (Toni's my maid of honor in red, and I'm holding Allie's hand. Isn't she a beautiful flower girl! Also pictured are my closest friends as bridesmaids...Colleen, Kim (sister-in-law) Alexis (step-daughter), Reann (sister-in-law) and Denise.)
Here is a pic of Toni and Mark. I've been bugging them for a while to let me take a picture of the two of them, but they're so damn stubborn. I cornered them this time!

And Allie is a hoot. Half the time she's this ramped up version of hyperactive funny kid like this...

And then she's this sweet little girl like this...

I love them all!
