Merritt Island Christian Homecoming 2010

Another successful homecoming at MICS... the week started with our anual Lip Sync and ended with a black light pep rally and black light dance at Cocoa Beach Country Club. It was beyond a busy couple of weeks for me, as I ended up in charge of the entire week's festivities again. Thankfully, I had some awesome help this year- Leigh, my best friend and fellow art teacher, who always supports me when I volunteer "us" for "everything" and cheerleading sponsors Carri and Kylie were awesome! The pep rally was so much fun that it was worth the late nights including setting up the gym till midnight. Donna and the high school teachers performed an incredible Blue Man type of performance with tennis balls. Elvis, Mr. Bopp, showed off his moves as the emmcee of the lip sync, and 11th grader, Spencer, who won the lip sync graciously volunteered last minute to wear a blow up glow in the dark fat man suit and entertain us at the pep rally. Many students helped including our homecoming King, Alex, who ran sound for us. Without all of you and countless other helpers, we couldn't have pulled off such a great event! So thank you- all of you; you know who you are even if I did not mention you by name. Even though I was "dead dog" tired Saturday from setting up the dance all day, I grabbed some unsweet tea from McDonal's and a cappachino and headed off to Cocoa to take pictures of the students. I loved seeing them all dressed up, and I felt proud of each one of them as I spend so much time with them that I feel like they are my kidos. And as I finished taking formal pictures for the dance, and began looking around to take casual shot;s and I saw how much fun they were having, a huge smile came across my face and I thought, "this was totally worth the effort!" Here are a couple pictures from our week!

Edgewood Cheerleaders

What a spirited bunch of girls! These Edgewood Middle School Cheerleaders have a great time cheering for the middle school boy's and girl's basketball teams. I really enjoyed watching them this season!

Foerster Wedding

Here are a few pictures from the Foerster wedding. To view more, visit my Facebook page. This couple had the most beautiful wedding; Adria really nailed it on the details. From the flowers to the table favors, it was pure class. Moreover, Adria was a stunning bride! She looked like a Hollywood glamour girl, and you couldn't take your eyes off her. Sophisticated Gents provided the lighting, monogram, and DJ services. Frederick, the owner, was great! Thank you Adria and Mike for allowing me to witness your beautiful wedding through my camera lens. I hope you like your pictures, and I hope you have a lifetime of happiness!

More soon... I promise!

I am a bit behind on my blogging. I have been very busy lately. I am currently working on editing pictures from a VERY BEAUTIFUL wedding! The bride looked like a movie star; and as I process the pictures, I have to smile at how perfect every detail turned out because I know she must have spent hours deciding on "just the right" everything. Well, she nailed it because I have never seen a wedding that perfect. I also have to give a shout out to "Sophisticated Gents" DJ; if you are looking for a DJ, Fredrick, the owner, is great. He is so nice and really made the reception fun. I can't wait to post some pictures from the special day.
I have also been busy taking pictures for schools. I recently shot the cheer squad from Edgewood. What an energetic bunch! If only I could bottle their enthusiasm, I would be rich...:) Homecoming starts next week for Merritt Island Christian, and I will be at the waterfront to take pictures for the kids and then will be shooting their formal pictures. About a week after that, I will be shooting Edgewood's 7th grade dance. I love being a part of the school scene and getting to share a bit of the kid's big night.
I will get back to work now processing pictures... No more guilt; I updated my blog, right? :)
