Steampunk Inspired Engagement Session, Rhonda & Jake

off in the distance I could see a man with a capricious mustache and top hat. He reached for the hand of a tall blond in a chestnut colored corset. It was as if I was transported to the very pages of a Victorian-era fiction novel. This was to good to be true. This was not a mirage, this was my 10AM appointment with Rhonda and Jake for an engagement session. THEY LOOKED AMAZING!!! They captured the essence of Steampunk fashion! We would spend our time photographing with old steam trains and a stylized set provided by Touched By Time Vintage Rental. What I loved most about photographing Jake and Rhonda, was witnessing how much they love one another. I’ll have you know, chivalry is not dead! Maybe Jake is from the victorian era???? He is a gentleman. The type of gentleman you would find in a love novel! Rhonda and Jake, congrats on your engagement!!! I am so happy you found one another. It makes for a great TRUE love story.

Lon’s Treasure

When I look over to the right of my desk … what do I see? Yes, a My Little Pony. My daughter London always decorates my desk with her toys. As a matter of fact, I’m pretty sure the desk is no longer just mine. It’s our desk. A new photography challenge I have given to myself is to photograph the small detail of life daily 🙂

Our Center

In the word’s of De’Ja Jackson :
“A family can develop only with a woman as it’s center. In every conceivable manner, the family is the link to our past and the bridge to our future. Our grandmother is our center and the link to our past. The youngest is four generations later and the bridge to our future.”

I was moved by the beautiful, honest and strong bond of this family. What a special moment to have photographs taken with your grandmother/great grandmother. I hope these photos are forever protected and cherished.
