Jack & Addison :: Fall Photos!

Say hi again to Jack and Addison!  You may remember them from a few family sessions I've had the pleasure to take with this group!  Well, now, Addison has grown up even more, and Jack is not only walking but running around like crazy!  Seriously.  I was sore the next day from running around with this little guy!  It's amazing what a few months can do! 

How cute and mature is Addison?!

I loved that I could, for the first time, take photos of the two walking around together.  What a cute little pair!

I was definitely glad Tracy wanted to sneak in for a photo with her and the kiddos!

Thanks so much for having me capture this fun shoot for you!  
Until next time,

Abby & Jimmy :: Fall Fun!

Abby and Jimmy are awesome.  I love taking pictures of these two!  And I love that they have come to me several times! :)  It makes me feel very honored to help them document their life together.  I first got onboard at their lovely wedding.  Then we had some very fun newlywed photos, then the first anniversary party, and now we bring you a delightful fall session for Christmas cards!  The day was absolutely. perfect.  It was in the upper 70s, the light was golden, and the trees were full of color!  I felt like I was walking in a photographer's dream!  And Abby and Jimmy were full of fun ideas for their photos!  I hope you enjoy!

This one made me chuckle.  I think it was Jimmy's suggestion to have her framed so he could view her like art at a gallery.  Quite the sense of humor.

Abby is super crafty!  She painted her own frame and even made this cool banner from scratch!

We had a lot of fun with this idea!  Now that I have sidewalk chalk in my prop bag, I'll have to try to use it more often!  Oh, the possibilities could be endless . . . . 

Loooove this next one.  It just feels so romantic!

 Thanks so much for having me capture memories for you once again, Abby and Jimmy!  And thank you for being such troopers with all of the crazy up-and-down-again poses!  It was a delight, and I can't wait til we can do this again!

Sara & Travis :: Married!

It's that time of year again . . . the time when I bitter-sweetly give you my last wedding of the season!  I couldn't have had a better couple to end my 2012 weddings.  You may remember Sara and Travis from their engagement session not too long ago!  I couldn't wait for their beautiful, cathedral wedding to arrive, and it finally did!  Sara was a gorgeous bride, and Travis looked quite dapper and handsome himself!  It was a calm, quiet day, full of meaning and beauty.

Seriously.  Stunning.

These two opted for a first look before the ceremony, which allowed them to have family photos beforehand.  It also allowed for this sweet moment between the two of them, which I was honored to capture.

And it certainly did not take away from the magical moment when Sara walked down the aisle.


The priest prayed over the couple, and he asked all of the guests to lift hands and join in prayer as well.  It was a beautiful moment.

Did I mention Sara looked beautiful??

And Travis!  Seriously, how suave does this guy look?!

Congratulations, Sara and Travis!  I loved documenting your engagement and your wedding for you!  I wish you many, many years of happiness together!
