Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, Kyle Richards, recently released her novel, Life is Not a Reality Show: Keeping It Real with the Housewife Who Does It All. On Thursday, January 19th, she signed copies for all her adoring fans at the Barnes & Noble in the Grove, Los Angeles. The lines were long, but the gracious Kyle stayed until the very last fan received her autograph, with a smile on her face.  Her willingness to take pictures with all her fans and sign novels for hours demonstrated her deep appreciation for all of the love and support she received that evening. Other Real Housewives showed up as well to support Kyle and her new book. It was a special evening, with lots of special people in attendance. Attendees included: husband Mauricio, daughters Alexia, Sophia, and Portia, editor of TV’s #1 New Magazine Reality Weekly, Omarosa Manigault, close friend, Ali Landry, and Beverly Hills Housewife, Lisa Vanderpump, author of Simply Divine: A Guide to Easy, Elegant, and Affordable Entertaining. I was happy to document such a warm occasion. Here is an article with more details about her novel and the event: http://www.sheknows.com/entertainment/articles/946401/kyle-richards-book-has-the-secret-to-a-perfect-life.

Maisy Rain has already turned one. I can’t believe how quickly it has happened, and I’m not even her mother! Needless to say, it was a joy to be able to document the next stages of her blossoming life. As you will see, she had a blast, causing everyone else to follow suit and really enjoy the day. I love this family and am so happy to know and spend time with them.  They used the first image for their family holiday card. Wishing Maisy, Kevin and Eileen a happy 2012! Shinick Myers Family Portraits 2221BW1 Maisys First Holiday Portraits

November 1, 2011 Baby Gemma is Born!

I recently had the honor and privilege of photographing precious newborn Gemma, daughter of Tim and Gillian Sheldon Heckendorf. I love what I do especially because of opportunities like this one, where I’m granted permission into the intimate moments of life that are so fleeting and fragile. At the time of her first photo shoot, Gemma was only three and-a-half weeks old. I am left with nothing but gratitude for the experience of documenting this beautiful new family. Lots of love and congratulations to you three. Click Here for a Slideshow with Music!

October 1, 2011 was a day to remember! Emily and Eric were married at the Adirondack League Club in Old Forge. Upstate New York became a hot and lively spot that day and night, despite the good luck wedding rain and chilly fall air. The newlyweds shared their love with each other and everyone in attendance, while the band got everybody movin’ and groovin’. We danced the night away and were pleasantly surprised with a grand finale performance of “Sweet Home Alabama” by none other than the bride and groom!!! What a treat, to be remembered forever. Congrats you two!!!

On October 1st, 2011, Emily and Eric were married in the Adirondacks. On September 30th, the three of us snuck away for some fun and lovey-dovey photos. All I can say is that these two are so madly in love with each other and life, and it shows! The Boston natives have been dating since high school. While they went to different universities, they were able to grow separately without growing apart. I can safely say that Em is one of the funnest and funniest people I know. Emily and Eric brought me so much joy during this special time we shared, and I thank them profusely for such a gratifying getaway.
