This is my second cousin Carmella, who I had the pleasure of meeting for the very first time recently. I had been hearing a lot about this little girl, but since I don't live in my hometown anymore, had not gotten to see her until now.
This is me holding Carmella (taken by Andy, even though my name is on it!). She loves to be held, and thinks it's funny when you sniffle!
And this is Carmella with her mom (my cousin Gina) after eating:

This weekend I traveled back to Western Pennsylvania / Eastern Ohio for my annual family reunion. It was a bit smaller than usual, but we still had a good time. I don't have all the photos edited yet, but here's one that grabbed my attention of a young 2nd (or 3rd?) cousin during the kids' games.
More photos / jabber to come later when I have time!

I just found out that I won second place in the latest AGWPJA contest! That placement was enough to make me the 5th place Artistic Guild wedding photographer from the contest all around. I'm pretty excited about all of that! The screen capture of the winning photo is above, and judge's comments are below:
Judge's Comments: 1. Surreal, dream-like, whether created in camera or not this has a beautiful treatment with a nostalgic look to a situation that each of us photograph week in and week out.
For the record, this wedding image was made completely in camera with my favorite Holga... no Photoshop applied!

It's been a while since my last post! Sorry about that. I've been really busy lately and have neglected my blogging duties. Anyway, I just developed the Holga film that I shot at Lisa & Harry's wedding with Allison of A Britton Photography based out of Virginia, and thought I would share.
A big thank you to Lisa & Harry and Allison for allowing me to make these images and share them with all of you!
