Christy Murray is a Momma!!

Christy and I met at my Brother and Sister-in-law's wedding. She was new to the business but I could tell from her presence and her product she had an amazing eye and great business sense. We hit it off and worked together since. I was thrilled when she told me the news of her pregnancy. I looked forward to the message of the baby's arrival. When this arrived via email I must admit I squealed with excitement.

Dan and I would like to introduce you to our new little one - Cale Murray Carmody, born on March 31st at 1:22 AM weighing 7 pounds 7 ounces and measuring 21 inches long.

Here is our little bundle of joy. He is by far the hardest newborn I've ever photographed - perhaps because he would rather be held by me than photographed by me. We are going to have to work on that one! Here is one where he isn't screaming...

Congrats Christy and Dan, welcome to the new world of parenthood. Your life will never be the same.

~Stacey&Dave~ February 21, 2009

Stacey and Dave called me about getting married in June. They were looking to get married on the Mount Desert Island and planning was going well. Then Stacey called about moving the wedding up. Her Father was diagnosed with cancer. We worked on pushing it up to February. Since the Island is pretty much closed till May we looked at new venues. I have been wanting to work at the Retreat at French's Point since it opened. Stacey and Dave loved it and we were a go. Jessika the CEO of the Retreat was amazing and we were able to make the plans go fast and furious under the circumstances. I was sad to say that Stacey's Dad didn't make it to their wedding day. However, he gave his blessing and was excited about everything he was apart of in the planning process. The Day was beautiful and cold. Dave was wanted to have lots of photos outside and so Stacey decided to get some good old LL BEAN boots for the outdoor shots. The Band was, as always, AMAZING. The food was incredible and the atmosphere was fantastic. French's Point is an amazing venue, there staff was incredible. Stacey and Dave really wanted their guests to have a great time. They had a Photo Booth, candy buffet, and a sparkler send-off. The guest were laughing and dancing the night away. It was a blessed day and Stacey and Dave along with their family had an amazing night.
