Thank you to everyone who made my first portrait party a huge success! What a fun day!

A big thank you to Mama Carolla's Old Italian Restaurant! Your hospitality and kindness are greatly appreciated, and I cannot thank you enough. I tried to capture the perfectly charming, cozy atmosphere so full of character, not to mention the delicious smells of garlic and freshly baked bread wafting throughout the restaurant. My husband and I look forward to dining there soon. I'm especially excited about dessert...tiramisu is my favorite! Grazie!

Thank you to my husband Reggie for all of his help and encouragement. He brought lunch and spare bulbs for my lights! Thank you so much, Reggie!

And thank you to my lovely assistants, Audrey and Ashley. Your friendship means the world to me. I really appreciate all of your help in making this a fun and successful day.

I must also say thank you to the families and friends who ventured out into the dreary, rainy day to spend some time with me. I can't wait to show you the rest of your photos! Thank you for making my day such a fun, exciting time - you are all truly blessed with adorable, loving families! And I'm honored to have shared this time with you.

Please check out all the photos from this unique event!

Lola was gracious enough to be my model so I could practice with a lens that I rented for the weekend. I had to work fast, because she doesn't like to be still for long!

Lola, you're beautiful! :)

My dear friend Leslie and her son Elijah enjoyed some frolicking in the bright fall leaves on IU's gorgeous campus. Elijah has a birthday coming up soon! What a sweetheart!

Elijah loved playing in the leaves. It was so cute to watch him because at one point he was trying to give the leaves back to the trees. How sweet is that?!

It was great to visit you two! Can't wait to see you again!

Wheels: Open House at Reggie's Motorworks, Inc.

Pin It October 18, 2008
Westfield, IN

I had so much fun photographing Reggie's Motorworks' second annual Open House! The weather was great, the food was fantastic, and the turnout was spectacular! We couldn't have asked for a better day.

The tire mounting relay was a hit! These 4 contestants had to take a tire, a tire iron, and bag of lugnuts to the car, one item at a time, then mount and tighten the lugnuts to spec.

And the winner is...Carl! Way to go!
Reggie made this trophy himself.

One of my favorite BMW's on display was a sweet 2002, which belongs to one of Reggie's clients.

Reggie, I'm so proud of you! You are following your dreams, you are an inspiration to me. Keep up the great work! Love ya!
