2010 Weddings

2010 Weddings from Desiree Stover on Vimeo.

2010 was a great year. I finally got the chance to go through my 2010 weddings and pull a couple of my favorite images from each couple's big day into a slideshow. It really makes me smile to see all of these couples and the amazing day I was able to capture in photos for them.

Hope you all have a very Happy New Year!!! Enjoy!

Holiday Portraits

After a quick trip to NYC for work, I returned and have stayed super busy since my last wedding of 2010 in November. Close friends & family asked me to take some holiday portraits of them, and since I hope most cards are already sent out, I wanted to share a few of my favorite images.
My neighbors all got together for an annual portrait of the entire family, and I even was able to get two small children to "grin" without any Photoshop work! The day got really fun when Grandpa dressed up as Santa Clause & the almost two year-old wasn't sure what to think!
I also took my first night portraits of our aunt and her children. I think we picked the coldest and most windy night of the year, but I still think we came out with some really nice family portraits. They really had my creativity swarming...and we ended up finding some nice backgrounds for photos, even when it was dark outside!
And I've been wanting to take photos of my dear friend, Becca, for months now, as her pup, Annabelle, and Ruger are best buddies and playmates. We had some fun at a local park and even did a bit of train dodging!
I hope everyone has a very Happy Holiday and enjoys whatever break from work they have. Stay warm & Keep Smiling!!! :)
