jennifer + buzz [wedding]

I have an exciting announcement!

After thinking I would never want to photograph a wedding (bridezillas wonk wonk wonk) I have changed my mind. I guess the saying "never say never" really is true. I actually shot a couple of weddings recently and realized that it's a LOT of fun and not nearly as stressful as I thought it would be. Actually, in some ways it was much easier than taking photos of wild and wonderful toddlers, so I'm officially launching my second brand... Carolyn Egerszegi Photography for weddings, engagement and couples photography. Go me!

The name Spilled Milk is great for families and kids, but isn't quite the vibe brides and grooms are probably searching for so I've decided to use my own name - crazy Hungarian surname and all - for the new branch of my photography business.

I've just posted my first bloggable wedding (I shot another for a client who wants to keep it private), so run on over to my new blog to check it out.

I'm still keeping insanely busy photographing amazing families, children and newborns too, which means don't wait to book your session. I'm already scheduling into October, so if you're thinking of Christmas card photos send me a quick email to secure a date by clicking HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!

fits of [laughter]

Can there be such a thing as too much laughter?

I, for one, don't think so, but this family certainly tested the idea! I have never met a family who could make each other laugh like this one. As I was looking through the photos after the session, I actually worried that I didn't have enough "serious" photos to give them because all I had was image after image of everybody in fits of laughter. Luckily, the mom assured me that photos full of laughter was a good representation of her family, certainly on that day anyway.

Thanks Cheryl & Philip, for such a fun-filled day with your wonderful family!

great [idea]

Yowzers! Have I ever been busy. I sometimes wonder if people think I'm not posting on my blog because I have no clients, but it's just the opposite. I am incredibly busy and looking forward to a little break from sessions in August so I can catch up on all my work. Don't get me wrong... I LOVE working with families and creating great photos, but I think by August I'll be ready for a little vacation.

Before I get on with some fun photos of yet another awesome family, I'm must tell you about a wedding I shot this weekend. It was a gorgeous event and I had an amazing time capturing all the beautiful moments of the day. The groom absolutely gushed all day about how beautiful his bride was, and he was right, Jennifer looked stunning. It was an event filled with love and close family and friends laughing and having a wonderful time. Hopefully I'll have some photos ready to post in the next week or so, but until I do, please go visit my friend Buzz HERE and wish him congratulations!

Now for the photos... here's another awesome family session I did back in May that I'm finally posting now.

I love clients who suggest great ideas for photos. I always bring ideas with me, but it's especially fun when a client suggests something that I might not have thought of. This is a perfect example... I LOVE this first shot of dad jumping over his son, but I would never have suggested it because I didn't know dad could jump so high. But he can! And he did! And I was more than happy to take the picture.

Thanks to Karen and Weilly for the great day at Queen E with your terrific family.
