So I posted about a super secret photo shoot I did a few weeks back. Well I can now finally blog about it. 3 guys that I have been friends with since I was like 14 asked me if I would be there photographer for there annual Christmas card they send out. It is usually hilarious and everyone wants one, it's a hot item around these parts ;)
One early Saturday morning we head down the shore to Belmar for a really quick photo shoot, and this is what came of it...


Meet Brian, Chris and Rich...

Old time photos...the real thing.

I know it's late, I just got done a project, one thing to cross of my list, 100 to go.
As I was scanning a gazillion and one photos for a secret x-mas present for someone. I came across old photos of my family. Some extremely old. Photographs really do amaze me, in every way. I love them(I'm glad I do since I am a photographer). They essentially hold on to one moment in time. Cameras capture history. They give people the ability to look back into the past. To remember their own history, to learn others. This holiday season, take any camera you have, even a disposable and document it.

Here is a few pictures I found. Over the holiday I will be posting some others...

This picture was taken 64 years ago in 1944. My grandmother @ 16, she is now 80.
This picture was taken around the same time, most likely the same year. My late grandfather in his Army uniform during the 40's.
I have another picture of my other grandmother, but I still have to scan it, then I will put it up.

Just a few pics from my session today with Jess. Couldn't really get a bad pic and found this sweet location.

This was one of those pictures where I just couldn't decide between color or B&W.

Sick Day...

My husband and I have been sick all week. Not fun at all! After 2 wonderful client meetings, editing, designing, brainstorming, researching and organizing. I decided to have a sick day, which ended with me on the computer anyway, then me getting bored. So out came the photo booth on my beloved iMAC. The photo booth never fails to make me laugh at myself or other people. I should actually make it a weekly posting, I have so many hilarious photos of friends and family entertaining themselves on my photo booth, I just may have to post one a week ;)

Sick Puppies

I laughed out loud...really.
I had time to take a quick dip in the beautiful ocean...
Hi from the moon.
I jetted to Paris real quick.
and went on a rollercoaster too!

I leave you with a normal one. About to finish cleaning...not as fun as the rest.

Get Simple...

In October Photo Expo Plus was in NYC, which meant top notch wedding photographers from all over made a trek to the city. And with that they held seminars, get togethers and all sorts of fun stuff for photographers to geek out about. So I took the train up to the city and had the awesome opportunity to take part of the GET SIMPLE seminar with Kevin Swan and Mike Larson. I can't tell you how much insight I took away from this long day. My business has changed a little, from the way I do things to my outlook on just about everything. I met some wonderful people and not only got to meet the Founder of Kiss Wedding Books (which is my favorite album company, the one I swear by and the only one I use) but I got to learn from him and have conversations with him. They are awesome for what they do, their costumer service and the passion they have for this industry. Pretty much...I was geeking out.

Catherine taking it all in.
Kevin Sharing his wisdom.
Learning from Mike.Shooting!

Halloween, 6 days late...

I know I know, I should have posted this about 6 Days ago. Go ahead slap my hand. Halloween, always a favorite among the Crawford Clan. There is something about dressing up, candy, crisp cool air, and well just the spirit of the holiday that is just spectacular in my mind. Everyone should have off for the day, to enjoy and have fun and be kids again. Speaking of Kids here are my 2 favorite little people in there awesomely cute costumes...My little sister Kelsey and my youngest brother Corey. This pictures just put a smile on my face, I hope they do the same to you.

Pretty Kitty Kelsey

Halloween is hands down Corey's favorite day and holiday of the entire year. He doesn't just get into character, he is Dracula...for the day anyway ;)
