joel // photographer assistant office man extraordinaire!

This has been something in the making for a while now, so I am very excited to finally introduce Joel Hodges, the newest member of the inContrast team! Many of you may recognize him from some of our wedding & portrait shoots in which he has come along as a third shooter or assistant.

Joel is an all around fun guy who will be bringing his photojournalistic expertise & sparkling personality along as a third photographer & assistant on some of our shoots, as well as helping edit & manage things around the office.

And as if Joel wasn't awesome enough already, he even willingly allowed us to assault him with water balloons! :)

One of my best friends from back in our high school days came to visit recently & I got to meet her adorable kids for the first time. It was raining the whole time they were in town, but we decided to take her oldest, Carlie, out for a quick shoot anyway with her new galoshes & umbrella. :) Next time they visit, I'm crossing my fingers for some nice weather so we can take some family photos with baby Ethan too!!

Carlie's cousin joined in on the fun for a few shots.

Can't help but love Carlie's saggy little pants & her prissy pose in the next one.

Carlie's tickle faces!

Gotta love these fun cow galoshes we found at Target!! If only they made them in adult size... ;)
