Erin's senior session

I photographed Erin yesterday. This is part one of her senior session, we'll be doing some outdoor shots in the near future.
Erin has a great smile and is very easy to work with. I think you can see this in the images. :)

Your Wedding - on the wall!

I am always looking out for new products and new ways to present my images. I throw away most of the brochures I receive from various companies, because most of the products are a little...cheesy. When I received information from the company that creates these "Composite Prints", I knew it would fit in with what I offer. It's classy, unique, and simply put - the focal point of any room it occupies!

The stars of this particular composite are Andy & Kim. What's that you said? You want to...

Tell your friends! I don't just photograph Delaware weddings. I also do destination wedding packages.

INFO: Infant Bereavement Photography

On a much more serious note, I've added a link to "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep". This is a non-profit organization, set up to aid parents in the healing process from the loss of their newborn baby. Honestly, I can't imagine the heartbreak and sorrow of a parent facing that kind of emotional pain. I've signed on as a volunteer photographer, and I've contacted the appropriate staff at our local hospital. I love to photograph people at the happy times, so in a way, I hope I'm never called upon to capture these images. But, if there is a need and I'm asked - I will do everything in my power to help share the spirit of their tragically short lives, and feel honored to do so.
This isn't as light and upbeat as previous (and all future) posts, but I think that it's important to make people aware that there is such a service available. Check out their website, and if you are moved - feel free to make a donation.

Devil Kitty

If you have found your way to my blog, and are considering choosing me to photograph your wedding, or your newborn baby, or your family...this post won't really help seal the deal.
I just thought it was time to give Oreo his 15 seconds of fame. My clients no longer get to meet Oreo in person, because I've found that his hissing fits and attack posturing scared them. I want my clients to have a unique and memorable experience, but not because they fear for their lives. So now, may I present...Oreo!

Senior Portraits by Lanagan Photography in Delaware

I've just kicked off my Senior's Portraits campaign and the phone has been ringing off the hook! I'm offering the first 50 sessions booked FREE! The key concept here is to... "Experience Senior Photography that's not Old School". I love photographing seniors because they're usually up for anything, and we really get some cool images. This is a milestone in your life, and not one to be captured by having a drape thrown over you while you hold your plastic rose! The images to follow are of EJ - he graduated this year. There are a few of the single images, and then the collage that I designed for the family.
With the volume of calls already coming in from this first mailing, I promise there will be many more awesome images of next year's grads coming soon!

More Ott Shots

I'm back...with more Ott Shots. This session was mainly to capture Lauri's nephew spending some quality time with family. He (and Mom and Dad, of course) don't live locally and thus, don't get as much time with the Grandparents. The plan is to put an album together that Mom and Dad can use to keep little Mason's memory fresh (in between visits). Not the greatest explanation, but a very cool thing to do for your sister. We also took a few more images of the Ott boys, to make the coming album complete!

Jennifer and Robert

Well, I did say that my posts would be jumping around. Jennifer and Robert were my first wedding of 2006. They found each other the new-fashioned way...through I guess it really works! Anyway, a great couple and a lot of great images. I love Poinsettias!

Leesa and Miguel's Wedding

Leesa and Miguel were married two weeks ago in Rehoboth Beach...shame on me for taking this long to blog them. At least they had the slideshow not long after the big day. After the ceremony, a quick trip to the beach, and then off to the Rehoboth Beach Country Club. Leesa and Miguel were awesome to work with, and so relaxed! I'll post a few and of course, the link to their slideshow.
Oh, and thanks to Janelle (Leesa's daughter) for referring Mom to me. I photographed Janelle and Ted's wedding last year. Janelle has a sister. To my knowledge there are no wedding plans, but when that time comes, I know Mom and sis will talk to her and help me bring home the trifecta!

Home invasion!

I really prefer a natural, non-posey style of photography - whether it is a portrait session, or a wedding. For families...there's no place like home...when it comes to natural and comfortable environments. After attending a three-day workshop in Leesburg, VA with Australian photographer David Williams, I knew I needed to shift the emphasis of my work from studio to location. One of my most long-time, loyal clients/friends...the Otts, adopted me for a few hours and we captured great stuff. This is all going into an album that will rock!
