It was the end of March and snow was falling as I drove through 3 counties.  The third shoot for First State Community Loan Fund’s annual report was a profile portrait of a female owned Delaware small business: Ladybug Pest Management.  This Delaware pest control company is unique because they use trained and certified canines to sniff out bed bugs.  Daisy and Dolley, the bed bug sniffing Beagles, are also a part of Ladybug Pest Management owners Sandy and Frank Honess’ family.  Mother Nature decided to throw one more snowy day at us for the season so the decision was made to photograph this bug banishing duo and their dogs in a mock living room setup where they regularly train Daisy and Dolley.  Take a look.

Oh the hair.  The HAIR!  This little beauty has such dark, thick, lovely hair for just a little thing.  After photographing their wedding in 2012, Megan & Will invited me back to photograph their precious baby girl and what a joy she was.  Such a gorgeous little girl.  I adore documenting my wedding couples as they grow their families!  It is so much fun for me and such an honor.

While weddings and families are the bulk of my photography work, I photograph many commercial gigs every year as well.

Here is Part 2 of the Delaware editorial portraits project I worked on for First State Community Loan Fund annual report.  Mountain Consulting, Inc, a minority-woman owned business, was the subject of this session. For these photos, we decided to photograph the owner with her husband, who also works for the business.  We met at a site they had recently started some land survey work on.    Take a look at a few of the portraits we made for the annual report.

Stay tuned for 3 more sessions from this project.

Kirsten and Matt’s fabulous Winterthur wedding took place back in 2009, but since life has a tendency to make it’s own plans, they hadn’t got around to ordering a wedding album until now.  Pregnant with their first child, Kirsten wanted so badly to have a wedding album to share with her son.  I was excited to put this handmade heirloom wedding album in her hands.

The metal image stripe really adds a modern touch to the classic leather cover, which was the perfect fit for this couple’s wedding that blended modern with tradition.

I took a minute to scope out the scene after the moving truck was in place and just as I brought my camera to my eye, the rain poured down in buckets…Delaware commercial photography can be messy.

First State Community Loan Fund recently commissioned me to create editorial portraits of a few of their clients for their annual report publication – a job consisting of 5 shoots in 10 days.  It was a tight schedule but I do enjoy a challenge.  The first of these sessions was to photograph the owner of G&G Moving, a local family owned moving company, with their new moving truck.  The first attempt at this shoot was just not meant to be.  The art director had a family emergency, leaving me to run solo on the shoot, and mother nature decided a downpour was in order.  Luckily everyone was able to reconvene later the same day, when the sun was shining.  Much better!  Take a look.
