I have written in the past about my journey to losing weight and getting fit. For those that don’t know me, I have been a couch potatoe my whole life. I was getting tired of being very overweight and not being able to move. Last March I found this amazing personal trainer. Tonie Covelli. Her small studio, Creative Fitness Solutions is on Manchester in Rock Hill. She has me doing crunches, push ups, lunges, weight lifting and lots of cardio. We have trained on the bike and row machines. She started me out slow and now we are training for a 5K. I will admit – I love working out. I have lost 21 pounds and am down 3 sizes. The best thing is my stamina during a photo shoot. I can get up and down much easier and quicker. If anyone is interested in getting into shape, Tonie’s phone number is 314 971-3597.
Our newest grandchild has arrived. Hadley Alexandra was born on Monday, September 15th at 7:30 pm. She weighed in at 7lbs 9oz and 22 inches long. Of course she is the most beautiful child ever to be born (excluding our other 2 grandchildren). Hadley is our 1st grandaughter. She is Kevin and Jackie’s first child. In the photos below she is 17 hours old here.

We are definitely proud grandparents!
I wanted to shared a great session I had with Samantha last week. We had so much fun. This session was at our Bluffs location. We are still accepting after school sessions at the Bluffs
3 wonderful seniors came to our Bluffs studio to have fun in the sun and water. They joined in a Trash the Dress session and an Underwater session. I had so much fun with these 3 beautiful girls. Thank you Ali, Tori and Erica.
Here are two images of Tori underwater.
Erica took a turn underwater.

This past Saturday Jim and Debbie Kiske were kind enough to take me on a boat cruise at their lake. Emily and Jeffrey Kiske were game to let me use them as “senior models” for a new fun session. We are introducing a new “life” session that would include something you love to do. Emily and Jeffrey are great skiers. We had a great time.
Here is Jeffrey showing off his skills. I love his suit coat.
Emily was a little more understated with her black dress.
And Connor the family puppy led us on this wonderful morning.
