Please Stay Tuned...

Ashley and Ben's vintage inspired, fall engagement session was so perfect!!! :)

Please check back for a more extensive preview as soon as I'm back from Hawaii!

How amazing is that record player?!


Out of Town Notice!!!

Aloha Everyone! I will be back in Hawaii, visiting my sister until Nov 10th! I will have limited internet and phone service while I'm gone, but if you need to get ahold of me, shoot me a message, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!

Mahalo for your patience! And Happy Halloween!!!

And because I don't like posting without a photo, here's a picture miss Stevie T took of my sister and I on my last trip to Hawaii! I know I haven't even had time to blog about it, but this winter, when I have a minute, I'll fill you all in on both trips :)


Marisa's Senior Session!

Oh my goodness Marisa made my job easy! :) She's such a beautiful, sweet girl, and I think we might have spent more time talking and laughing during her session than actually working!

As soon as we got outside, the model in her came out!

I looooove this one.

This wall makes such a perfect backdrop!

Weeping willows make me happy. And check out those eyes!

Marisa's boyfriend, Noah, joined us for a bit!

I LOVE this one! So fun, and such a pretty girl!


Katherine and David's Operation Love Session!

Katherine contacted me through Operation Love Reunited. Her husband, David is being deployed to Iraq next Saturday. We did our session at the park they like to walk their two dogs- Chip and Chuck!
Katherine and David, I hope you two enjoy your preview!

And David- thank you.

We ended up with such a beautiful fall day! And look at those well behaved dogs!

I love this one :)

I think the one on the right is my favorite! Love the windmill, and love little Chip's expression!


Portrait Party!

As the winter season fast approaches, I've decided to have a Portrait Party- a day full of Mini Shoots, to let you take care of all of your Portrait needs just in time for Holiday gift giving! Whether you have a new addition to the family, are looking for an affordable session for your high school senior, or would just like some updated images of your stunning self, this is an opportunity not to be missed!

I've designated Nov 14th to be my Mini Shoot day, with Nov 15th as back up for bad weather. I'll be scheduling sessions from 11am-4pm.
There is limited availability, so act quickly to make sure to get a time slot!

Your Mini Shoot session fee is $50, and will include:
- a 20 minute session with me
- an online gallery, where you may view your images and order prints
- one high resolution digital file, perfect for your Holiday card!

I would also like to announce that as I've been shooting more and more portrait sessions lately, and having a blast doing it, Nicole Ladonne Photography now has new Portrait Package pricing! If you'd rather schedule a private session with me on another day, email me at: nicole@nicoleladonne.com

The $50 session fee is due to book your time slot! Click on the PayPal button in the side bar to the left, or if you'd rather send a check, let me know, and I'll send you my address!


Jen and Don are Married!

Jen and Don were married at The Church of the Divine Child on Saturday! I had such a great time at this wedding! Not only are Jen and Don two of the sweetest, most fun people you'll ever meet, but their family and friends are a blast as well!

I loved this shot of Jen getting her veil adjusted- she looks like a more beautiful version of a Barbie Doll :)

Jen's dress was gorgeous!!

Jen's parent's wedding photo hung near the dress.

Jen's jewelry- something old and something blue.

What a glamorous bride!

As Jen walked down the aisle, I turned to get a shot of Don's reaction, and saw this! It's enough to make a girl a little insecure! ;)

They had a bagpiper playing as their guests exited the church!

After the ceremony, the whole bridal party headed over to Lucky Strike!

Ever see a bride play DDR? ;)

You can find beautiful light just about anywhere!

Jen and Don's reception was at Glen Oaks.

Groomsmen are fun :)

Lucky Strike prizes! Wrist bands! :)

Such a beautiful sky that evening!

Big thanks to Robin for getting some awesome detail shots!

Love these! So sweet!
