Weekend Links!

(c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHYHappy weekend, everyone!  Hope you’re off to something wonderful.  Thought I’d resurrect the weekend links here – a few things have caught my attention lately.

*Pantone’s color of the year is marsala.
*Marsala makes me hungry, and this marsala pasta bake sounds delicious.
*For something lighter, chicken stock is a good idea (I made this last weekend and I may never be able to go back to boxed broths.
*Unrelated to food, I love this dramatic look.
* ICYMI – pretty instagrams from the Golden Globes (I only care what people are wearing).
* If you haven’t seen Bad Lip Reading’s Hunger Games snippets, you are in for a treat.  Here’s a bonus track.

Family Photo Shoot – in every sense of the word

This holiday season, I was honored to take photos of my beautiful cousin’s family, including her sweet twin girls.  Here’s a few of my favorites from that shoot.  (See, I’m catching up, here people!)

Wee William – a newborn

In my falling behind on posts, I realized I forgot to put up this lovely newborn session with Baby William (love a classic name).  I was so flattered that this couple chose me to take their baby photos as I was a huge fan of their Lake Tahoe winter wedding & the gorgeous photography from that event.  Check it all out!

Happy New Year!!

Apologies for the lack of posting here – I’m going to try to get better about that in 2015.  To kick that off, here’s a cute holiday session from December.  I hope you’re all staying warm and enjoying a little winter downtime.

Drumroll . . . it’s weekend links again!

(c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHYIt’s been ages since I’ve posted weekend links, so I thought I’d bring them back.  Truth be told, collecting the links is a little like going to the gym – it’s fun, it’s something I enjoy, but man, once you stop for a second it can be hard to start doing again.  Before I get to the links, a note on today’s photos – they’re just a few snapshots from a recent trip to Seattle.  I’m a creature of habit and I ended up going to all my favorite haunts up there, and I did add a new spot – Rock Creek restaurant.  It was so good, I ended up having brunch and dinner there.  Okay, enough chatter – onto the links:

*Unless you hate laughing, you have to read Emails From Janice.  You may recall that I was interviewed by Claire Suddath from Businessweek last year after I spent a weekend at a hippy retreat in the woods, and so I follow her on twitter, because, well I tend to stalk people like that.  It turns out that she writes really funny articles and she also has this hilarious tumbler documenting things her mom Janice says.  It’s hysterical.  You will laugh.  I promise.
* Luckily no one asks me for discs of unedited images, but this is a great article explaining why us photographer types won’t give you that.  Short version – the editing is as much of the process as taking the picture in the first place.
* Awesome two sentence horror stories.  Because Halloween.
* Previously unseen photos from JFK & Jackie’s wedding taken by their second shooter.
* Career advice from powerful women that doesn’t all suck, a round up.
* When I was a kid, I used to love sneak-reading “Can this marriage be saved” in Ladies Home Journal and this history behind the column is fascinating.
* I need to make this now that it’s getting cold again.
* Facts about SATC.  Because best show ever made.

Have a great weekend!

Little girls in tulle dresses . . .

(c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY(c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHYI will forever be a total girly girl & I will always love a dress with tulle and ruffles.  Accordingly, I loved doing this photo shoot with a couple of kids that reminded me of me and my sister a very long time ago.

Family Shoot – Shoreline Park

(c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHYIt’s always such an honor and a privilege when a family I shoot asks me to come back and take their photos again.  I first met these folks when their oldest was a little over a year, and we took photos at Shoreline Park.  They’ve now got a second little guy who’s the same age his brother was when we did that shoot, and we met up again.  It’s so cool getting to watch the kids grow up.  (It’s also kind of fun seeing how my style has changed a bit – I still favor real moments, but these days I’m liking film-esque colors for processing.)
