Congratulations on this wonderful new adventure, you two are going to rock as parents!!!

Alex & Tara ~McCloone’s, Asbury Boardwalk

Congratulations Tara and Alex!!!
I love being around you two………absolutely the most relax couple I know:) This was the perfect start to the season at McCloone’s on the Asbury boardwalk.
Even though you two planned a beach wedding and the fog rolled in at the last second like we were in San Fransisco, I was thrilled that your ceremony moved inside to the Convention Hall. What a great back drop for super cool photos:)
I love the special connecton you two have, the way you look at one another, and the sweetness towards each other.
It was a special treat at the reception to hear DJ Brian Koos playing local muscian’s, since you two are huge fans of all the talented local artist in the area:)
Wishing you a lifetime of joy, adventure, and true happiness!


Taj Amani!!! Welcome!

I’m the luckiest Auntie alive! Its rare that I get to blog about myself and my family!
Only 5 days alive; from the moment he took his first breath I was blessed to have the opportunity to document his journey.
Taj Amani Lauducci : 7lb 1oz boy born 4/11

Taj meaning crown or exalted; Amani meaning harmony and peace……….Born for adventure, fun, and amazing opportunities surrounded by a loving family.

I spent the last week in California visiting and planned my trip a week after Taj’s due date, but no he waited till the day I arrived to come into the world:)
I’m still speechless after experiencing and seeing my first birth……Josie is truly a women I admire, strong, patient, loving mother and wife. My brother Christian and her are the perfect match balancing each others personalities, love for adventure, and sports.
Everytime I look at these photos I tear up from the smiles and happiness on my families face all created by someone so little.
Please enjoy Taj’s first 5 day journey through the images below.

I love you more then anything:)

Kevin & Genevieve {Oakland, Ca}

Recently I traveled home to California……..number one favorite thing to do when I’m home is photograph all the killer locations in the Bay Area.
Only fitting I had the opportunity to photograph Kevin and Genevieve!!!!!!!
Kevin and I have been best friends since he was 17 and I was 19…… our history and friendship. He is a killer climber, mountain biker, super creative, and all around awesome person:)
I couldn’t be happier that he found a wonderful person to share his life with. Genevieve is stylish, spunky, fun, and one of the sweetest people I’ve met. She is a perfect complement to his high energy!
Such a small world, Genevieve and I come from the same corner of Montucky (Montana) and both followed our paths to California.


Recently I photographed Kathleen’s son Kevin…….he needed headshots for his first casting call. They loved him……….I’m mean who wouldn’t love a three year old, blue eyed, curly blonde cutie!!! As Kathleen and Kevin were leaving they stopped her and asked if she was interested too………..Of course Kathleen laughed and said sure!!!!
The photo session just blew me away; Kathleen a mother of three, talented hair stylist, amazing yoga teacher, and the biggest heart in the world. She is beautiful, stunning, sweet and I love her red hair! Yes, a little jealous since I was born with Auburn hair and always wanted Kathleen’s color:):):)
I love these photos!!! Enjoy a few of my favorites!!!!
