My boy last Saturday when he turned 14!
Sometimes Norman just cracks me up! He had a gift certificate to Nordstrom so he comes home with a few new pairs of shorts and this T shirt:Who knew how prophetic this T shirt would prove to be. Our house was hit by lightening on Friday evening. The hit burned out a lot of stuff including our TV, dishwasher and router, and then impacted our air conditioning, sprinkler system, hot water heater and electrical system. A lot of this has been fixed, most importantly the air conditioning, but we are still dealing with all the paperwork for the homeowner’s claim we filed. At least no one got hurt and our house is still standing! Life sure does feel like a game of monopoly sometimes.
Back to Justine and Brandon’s Engagement Session in Cape May. After walking around Cape May, we moved to the beach. It was bright out…we waited and waited for the sun to set! We made the best of the light…and I love this first series of shots on the beach.Brandon chose a beautiful ring for Justine!The beach was lovely.I love this shot! Playing around in the (very cold) water.Justine and Brandon were troopers to walk out on the jetty and stand in the water. This series of shots is great with the water all around them and the waves crashing.Love the spray!
This was when a cold wave hit them! Oh you guys are gorgeous! This couple got annoyed that I was shooting there. I guess we were ruining their view. It made for a fun shot.Last shot of the day. Juntine and Brandon: I cannot wait for your wedding in September!
Justine is the only bride, if I recall correctly, to ask me to shoot her wedding without ever meeting me. I finally met Justine and Brandon in Cape May on a beautiful Sunday evening a few weeks ago.
Justine looked as cute as can be. I loved her little cream-colored dress. We wandered around Cape May at first (before hitting the beach).I know there are weird shadows over Justine and Brandon’s faces, but I liked this shot despite that.So lovely!This slate patio was perfect.
The light at the Pancake House was surprisingly flattering! I asked Justine to look serious for a moment. Brandon is very photogenic.We stopped into a bar for a few shots….….and this shot, at the pool table, was my favorite.Now off to the beach. Stop in tomorrow for some great beach shots!
I was fortunate enough to be asked to take pictures for the 2nd annual Mario’s Lemonade stand here in Swedesboro last weekend. There was lots of Lemonade.And many people came out to support Mario.There were sno-cones.and face painting.and even Sponge Bob!Prizes.
And more prizes.A dunk tank.All this to support Mario. A little kid with a big heart who wants to raise money to find a cure for cancer.Mario was busy playing during a lot of the event. He’s an honorary member of the fire company.Here he is, on the left, with his buddy.The Swedesboro/Woolwich Fire Company is so kind to host the event.The music was loud!I heard that Mario raised something like 40,000.00 to donate to the worthy cause! Congrats to Mario and all the volunteers for their hard work and dedication!
