Life at our house...

Life around our house has been really fun lately, we're fully immersed in a huge Junebug Weddings project, producing and sourcing around 500 photos for a nationally published wedding planning book due out in 2009!!!
Blair and Christy (my Junebug partners) are busy writing the book while our house has been turned into a professional photo studio. Adam even moved one of our computers out into the living room so that I can shoot right into the computer and it will pop up on the big screen! LOVE IT!

Today we shot diamonds!! We went "shopping" this morning at EE Robbins in downtown Seattle for our favorites, brought them home and started shooting. The photo below is Christy covered in white so that her reflection doesn't show in the ring.

Below is the ring she was shooting.... it featured a new type of setting in wedding rings, French Pave, which I LOVE... so dainty and sophisticated.


Maddie loves to be in the middle of all the action....


We shot invitations last week, and had over 100 different invitations here at the house to play with... I love the wording of the directions below from mmm... paper (click on the photo to enlarge).

Blair was over the other night to help me with a few of the photos, it was so fun to watch her balanced up on the ladder... engrossed in her subject :).

Below is the photo she was taking (the invitation is by izzy girl)

Christy is loving our brand new 100mm/2.8 macro lens. It is so fun to see how close you can get to your subject and still maintain focus... really, a ton of fun for us photo nerds :).

and this is the photo she was taking (invitation by Bella Figura)

I just can't believe you guys.... I'm constantly in awe of what you produce and what you can do if you set your mind to it! Great new site, love it. Great images from Paris, great images of everything! Can I be you?? Oh yeah, and your mom gave me some of the diamonds... and I'm NOT bringing them back. Don't bother coming to look for me... I won't be here ;)
