A Beautiful Wedding Day In April

This is my favorite image from a wedding I second shot for Pond Photography in April. It was one of the first warm days of the year, perfect for a wedding, and this was truly the sweetest couple I have ever met. It was a wonderful day.

Flower Girl Portrait

I was second video shooting a wedding last weekend, and I just had to stop and take some stills of this adorable little flower girl. Her handmade dress and hair piece were really lovely. With all the tulle and a feather fringe, she looked like a little swan! Her mother was trying valiantly to get her to pose formally, but this cute tot just wasn't having it. What a face - those curls and those blue eyes - irresistible!

Patrick Saunders En Plein Air Workshop, June 8th, 2014

Patrick Saunders taught his first en plein air class on Sunday. The original date on Saturday was rained out, but Sunday turned out to be a beautiful day, and most participants were able to attend on Sunday. A good time was had by all - attendees were fortunate to have an incredible outdoor space to paint. Patrick already has requests for more workshops, so if you missed this one, you will have the chance to sign up for a future workshop!

SFA Photo Of The Day: Striped Rose, Loose Park Rose Garden

I photographed this beauty just before Rose Day June 1st at the Loose Park Rose Garden. I didn't know before now how relatively rare striped roses are, especially those that occur naturally.

Patrick Saunders Toy Tractors Painting

Patrick Saunders is participating in this year's Stems Plein-Air competition, and he completed this whimsical painting, "Toy Tractors", Saturday at the event's last quick paint event. The toy tractors were waiting for children to play with them at the Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead.
