Good Friday : Earth Blossoms
March 29, 2013
If you have ever wondered what would happen when you stick two dog loving, creative people in a flower shop with a dog, flowers and camera, this is your lucky day! About a week ago my very talented friend Noreen of Earth Blossoms Flowers and I got together with Roxy in tow for a fun flower and photo get together. Below are a few photos of Roxy looking behaved, sometimes drooling for treats. Enjoy!
Noreen made Roxy feel like a princess with this awesome flower collar (the cheese helped too). Roxy typically doesn't like wearing clothes, but she loves her flower collar (which is still safe in the fridge for Easter).
Thank you Noreen!
Peak Fall Foliage
September 29, 2012
My mom always told me growing up that two days after after I was born (October 16, 1979), she left the hospital and noticed that the trees were at peak foliage. When she went in they were pretty, but when she left they were spectacular. People always ask me when peak foliage is, and while it varies from year to year my answer always remains consistent. Peak foliage is (on the average year) just past mid-October.
Last year was unique, October 22, 2011 looked like this (Shelby and Jeff's Lord Thompson Manor wedding)...
And then the following weekend looked like this (Juli and Keith's Fall/Winter Storm Alfred wedding)...
While this image has to be one of my all time favorites, this was not what Juli and Keith had planned on their wedding day. Not to mention, this image was captured around 12:30/1pm (at the beginning of the storm).
Certainly the weather predictors struggle with accuracy; I can give you my best guess (but it is just a guess).
Fall of 2011 was not the typical Fall, not just because of the storm but because I don't feel like there was a vibrant change in color. It really doesn't make a huge difference in pictures, you find the best looking tree in good light and use what you have! This is adorable Amanda and Jon from last year at Wickham Park on October 25th.
And here is another fall 2011 shoot, Amanda and Matt at Lyman Orchards on October 18th. Click here to check out Amanda and Matt's wedding!
Now I'm going to show you some of the same spots in the fall of 2010. First off is Wickham park on October 20, 2010; Christina and Shaun. Click here to see Christina and Shaun's wedding at Saybrook Point Inn and Spas.
Haylen and Justin's session from October 15, 2010. Click here to see Haylen and Justin's wedding day at Candlewood Inn.
Kristen and Joe's session on October 19, 2010. Click here to see Kristen and Joe's wedding at The Riverview.
I'm really looking forward to October 2012 to see what it may bring. It is going to be a busy and exciting month; I'm ready!!
Happy 4th of July

This year the display was not as grand as last, but still not bad for being at home.
Website and Email Down
June 20, 2012
Today, June 20, 2012, I just realized that my website, www.alissadinneen.com is down. The web designers servers are down, therefore my site and email are both not working. Their IT department is working on resolving this issue.
For immediate assistance please call me at 860-302-7196.
