Jessie. Senior Session

| Posted in: seniors

This gorgeous girl is my sister Jessie. She’s super fun, a talented guitarist and vocalist, and, as we found out during her senior session, awesome in front of the camera :) We were hoping for some sun to pop through the clouds during her extremely cold session but ended up loving the feel of this grey fall day.

Jess, I love you and am so stinkin’ proud of you. Thanks for letting me shoot this session!

Fall Mini Session Previews!

This day was so FUN! Even though it turned out to be one of the coldest days so far this season, these sixteen beautiful groups didn’t show it at all! I had a wonderful mix of families, couples, babies, dogs, and high school seniors to photograph at a stunning farm. What more could you ask for? Ok, a little warmer would’ve been nice ;) But we had coffee, cider, and tasty treats from Maxie B’s to make up for it.

Enjoy a few previews from each session! I’ll be making full blog posts of each group in the following months so stay tuned!

Meet Sam. Personal.

To those of you that follow me on Instagram or Facebook, this is old news. But I realized that I never made the official announcement! Our second beautiful boy was born a little more than a month ago. He’s a total dream… Sweet, squishy, and perfect, with a head full of hair!

I won’t get into all the details but his birth was so ideal, I almost feel bad about it! He arrived after only two and a half hours of labor and we’ve been enjoying him ever since. Oh, that sweet newborn smell! I had almost forgotten it. He’s so cute, it almost makes the lack of sleep not worth mentioning. Yeah, almost.

Meet my sweet little Sammy…

Alaina + Dustin. Pt 2.

| Posted in: weddings

Here it is! Part 2 of Alaina + Dustin’s gorgeous wedding [click here for part 1!]

Y’all… This reception is to die for. From the trellis dripping with strands of light and reclaimed barn wood banquet tables, to the wedding cakes, signage, menus, and centerpieces … Every detail was lovingly crafted by the bride and groom or some family member or friend. Sometimes DIY weddings can turn out pretty amazing…

Some of my favorite things from this day – Watching both Dustin and Alaina as she walked down the aisle to the sound of our sisters singing “Intimacy” by Jonathan David Helser. (It was seriously hard to hold it together! Sniffles could be heard throughout the rest of the ceremony.)
Spending time with the newlyweds after the ceremony – Mabyn and I couldn’t stop photographing these two! Every frame was so romantic and magical in this little clearing in the woods.
I love our family’s tradition of dancing with our dad and each of our three brothers during the father/daughter dance. It’s such a special time and one of my favorite memories from our wedding. I know Alaina feels the same way!
And finally, the grand exit down the front steps of the house Alaina grew up in. . . Now, stop reading and start scrolling through this eye candy!
