Itchy, sticky, rainy, zainy Foggy on my Window

Can you say YUCK!!! Yesterday was one of those day...it rained all day. As my mother would tell me "we need the rain for the grass, plants rivers, and more to grow. Ok, I'll agree with that, so as I got up to go into the kitchen to make me a cup of tea, looking out the kitchen window at my back yard, i couldn't help but notice a strange object sticking on my window. So of course i had to get closer to examine what it was (hee hee) and this is what i came eye to eye with, i was too chicken to get close, but I manage to get these shots despite having my umbrella in one hand and the camera in the other. Well when I awoke this morning my little sticky friend had gone...oh well i guess he was just hanging out until the rain pass too..

This photo i just shot because it's my little reminder that spring has sprung. Every year it's just amazing to me that this little green plant comes back just at the right time.

Bridal Bouquets

One of the many great things about shooting a wedding, is shooting those detail shots and even more amazing is shooting the Bride's Wedding Bouquet. I wanted to share a few bouquets I've photoraphed and wanted to perhaps give you ideas if you haven't already done so thus far. Live flowers are so elegant, classy, beautiful, and are great for picture taking photos...it also adds so much to the bride and groom. It's worth the expense, trust me!

Hope this gives you something to think about when selecting your next bouquet.

Body Magic

Today was a gray, cold, dreary, rainy day. All that great weather earlier this week was short lived but hey there's always tomorrow right. :) I got a call from my best friend to photograph a presentation she was giving at one of the local hotels. It was for a product called "Body Magic". Now I had never heard of this so I was kind of curious as well. When I arrived there were already quite a few people there so I wanted to snap a couple of shots before the presentation got started. The presentation was pleasantly surprising.

This product is what you would say "WOW". You definitely have to see to believe it. You can drop 2 to 3 dress sizes in about 10mins. I know, I know what you're thinking...yeah right! Well I saw it with my own eyes and I photographed it. I thought this would be great for those brides or even grooms (yes gentlemen this product is for both men and women). If you want to get that perfect size or a great looking shape for your special day, you might want to consider "Body Magic". I'm so NOT kidding. I don't go around doing endorsements. I'm just putting it out there, when I see something that would be something helpful I want to share. This product is NOT a girdle but much more. If you're curious or interested you can go to www.ardyss.com, and check out the other products they have or send me an email at michelle@mwsphotos.com. But in the meantime, here are a few photos I wanted to share. Be sure to check out the photos of the guest they did a "Body Magic" makeover on!
Have a great Saturday.

Coffee Talk Books

Yes, I think Coffee Table Books are so cool and so very different from Traditional Albums. Yes, i know i said Coffee Talk books but that's because their so convenient and easy to transport its bound to get people to 'Talking".  
I think that's one a the reasons I love coffee table books.   I will say Albums in general have come a LONG WAY, don't get me wrong I love Albums too but to me a coffee table book is like having your own hardcover novel about you. :) 
I'm in the process of designing an Album for this client, but I couldn't resist this Coffee Table Book that I ordered complimentary to DWF members, Sweet!  So in the mist of all the breaking news of my brother's engagement this weekend, I almost forgot to blog about my book that arrived over the weekend.
Here are some pics I took.  Just fyi, this is my first time using this album company and the quality is awesome!  This album has a glossy finish, which I don't normally do, but I have to admit theirs is really nice and it has a really good durable protective coating and the binding is great too! I'm definitely going to add them to my vendor list.

Michael + Melissa Engaged!!!

Wow! I'm sooooo excited for this next couple because they have a special place in my heart. It's my oldest Brother Michael aka "Big Mike" as many affectionately know him. Today he called me up sounding all nerves, well just a tad bit, he says to me "well sis this is it i'm getting ready to do it", and i said do what? and he said "well I just bought Melissa a ring and were going to do this! I was so overjoy I started screaming and crying, you'd think i was getting engaged LOL. Anyway, he said that his girlfriend was coming over at 2pm and was going to give her the ring. Since this was such short notice I wanted to be there to witness and of course capture the moment :) so I flew over there and made it in the nick of time. I'm really just giving the skinny as they say of this story but I'll have more to tell when we shoot their formal engagement session. For now here are a few pics!
