I photographed Colleen and Dave's wedding in Philadelphia back in 2009 so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to catch up with them now that they have not one, but two little ones in their lives! Two year old Maura has nothing to worry about as far as attention goes. She is adorable and so funny, I don't think she will be fading into the background as Brendan joins the family. Most newborns are so sleepy in the first ten days but Brendan was amazingly alert. Between his parents, aunts, sister and myself (and my baby!) I am not surprised. There was a lot going on! He was as good as gold though and so fun to photograph. Dave and Colleen, I hope you love the photos!
I grew up with Erin at church. We spent many a retreat, lock-in, choir tour, work camp, Christmas Eve service and Sunday night youth group together. The friendships we made in our youth group were some of the strongest and the bonds we formed were strengthened over many years of the rich experiences we shared through church. It was an atmosphere that becomes easy to forget when you graduate high school and abruptly enter the real world of facing a mass of strangers at college and then the actual world of post-college reality. Many of us have moved away from home, but seeing Erin (and Sara!) brought back so many memories and warmed my heart in a way that I am so thankful for. Erin, it was an honor and a privilege to photograph your wedding. You made a stunning bride and I loved sharing every moment with you. Bret, you already know you're a lucky man :) Thank you SO much for trusting me with your most special day. You are such a sweet couple and I wish you a lifetime of health and happiness.
Thank you to my many thoughtful clients for checking in with us to see if our new baby had arrived! We welcomed our baby girl, Adelaide, on August 5. She shares a birthday with my husband so to say it was a very, very special day would be an understatement. She has changed our lives in an enormous and wonderful way. She is the sweetest girl and somehow she is already two months old. I look forward to sharing more photographs of her with you as she grows. But for now, here is her announcement and a few of my favorite pictures of our little Addie. Thanks to my mom for the last image!
