Weekend Vacation: New Orleans

James and I flew to New Orleans for the weekend to visit my brother, Steven.  He's interning in Lafayette, LA (~2.5 hrs from New Orleans) but he drove over to stay with us in the hotel.  Southwest had a killer flight deal from Denver to New Orleans so we figured he what the heck let's go.  It was really nice to be able to travel somewhere and not worry about dragging tons of gear along - just brought a tiny backpack with my camera and 3 of my favorite lenses.

I met my brother at Oak Alley Plantation, we took the tour of the estate - it was really neat and the 300 yr old oak trees lining the pathway were my favorite.  He let me snap a couple photos of him here - This would be an AMAZING location for a bridal shoot.

New Orleans - I didn't take as many photos as I wanted to because I didn't want to have to carry my camera around all day (it gets heavy & the extra backpack isn't much fun in the heat / humidity) I'm pretty pleased with what I did shoot and I have a couple to print up for the gallery in Texas.

One of my favorite shots from the trip, I got 2 shots of this guy before he flicked me off -- I just loved the lines and the building behind.
All in all an awesome weekend, even with the threat of a tropical storm - it only rained a tiny bit one day.


Dutcher Large Family Portrait

Today I met the Dutcher family for an extended family portrait session.  I was a little worried about the session when I woke up this morning to thunderstorms but everything worked out great - no rain & the clouds helped keep the temperature down!  Here are a couple sneak peeks from today's session!

New Blog Layout =)

Today I've officially completed my blog renovation! New & updated with a slideshow header and the ability to post LARGE photos. I've edited some of my past posts to enlarge the photos & all my new posts will definitely take advantage of this feature.

Every month I'm going to try and show off some of my products that I offer here at Sharon Arnoldi Photography.  Getting us started is my Custom CD/DVD Case.  If you are already a client you already know about these guys but hey thought I'd show it off.

These little guys automatically come with a portrait session (small res files) or a Wedding DVD of digital Negatives.  Cute custom designs with photos from your wedding or portrait session.  Probably one of my favorite things to create too.  Printed by my lab, Millers Professional Imaging.

{WEDDING} Eryn & Michael's | June 19, 2010

Eryn & Michael were married June 19 in Colorado Springs, CO. They picked a cute church downtown (with the MOST adorable Bride's Room). After the ceremony they were whisked away on a horse drawn carriage and arrived at Phantom Canyon Brewery for some eating and good times. Their DJ, Eric Holt of Complete Music Disc Jockey Service was by far the best DJ I've ever seen at a wedding.

{WEDDING} Brian & Tara | June 5, 2010

Brian & Tara got married June 5, 2010 in Clearwater, Florida at the Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort. A destination for all and extremely beautiful. They were married on the beach just outside the resort with the reception on the hotel's Sandpiper Deck. Incredibly beautiful, relaxed and all around FUN wedding! I had a blast taking photos and my assistant, Nick, got to experience the beach for the first time!
