My friend and college roommate, Lauren, had a sweet little baby girl last month and I got to photograph her tiny self when she came home from the hospital, and actually, while she was in the hospital too. As you can see, she has SO much hair and for as many newborns as I've shot, I am always amazed at how tiny a new baby can be. I loved seeing her and she was so sweet for the entire shoot. I can't wait to watch her get bigger as the months go by. Congratulations Pidge and Greg!!
Karen is, in a word, happy. For as many years as I have known her she has always been a bright light and a warm presence. I would bet there are zero people who do not like her. I knew Phil and Karen's wedding would be lovely. There were many, many months of planning that went into creating this beautiful day, as is the case with most weddings. But I knew this wedding would just be so special from the moment I heard all of the ideas buzzing from Karen and her creative and multi-talented mother, Becky. The dress, the flowers, the venue, the ceremony, the fireworks, everything was amazing. I'll let the photos illustrate how wonderful this wedding was but I want to express my thanks and gratitude for the opportunity to work with both Karen and Phil and to document such a special time for such a sweet couple. I believe Karen has truly found the yin to her yang in Phil. Upon meeting him for their engagement session, he was equally as warm and kind as Karen and they both laugh with ease, which should serve them well in marriage. Karen and Phil, I wish you many years of health, happiness and a beautiful new life together. Congratulations!!
These sweet little twins arrived well before their due date and by the time I got to them they were just over a month old but still such newborns in their sweet, sleepy and cuddly ways. It is so fascinating to me to see twins together, especially at the newborn stage, when they cuddle up to one another as they are just so accustomed to having done for the past nine months. I can't imagine the lifelong bond they will share. These tiny babies came home to their beautiful big sister, Addison, who loves and kisses them so sweetly. I've loved watching this family grow and continue to be so thankful for the opportunity to be invited into my clients' homes again and again.
I met Casey and Dan on their wedding day which meant I really had no idea what to expect. I couldn't have been more pleased to find such kind and happy people. Casey was so sweet and her entire family had me laughing all day. While it rained for the entire day, and if it stopped we didn't notice, she beamed from ear to ear in spite of it. I loved their attitude and upbeat nature. It was a pleasure working with such a fun group and it was an added bonus that it was as close to home as I've ever worked, ten minutes! I hope you enjoy the photos, I think we made the absolute best of a rainy day and I'm so thankful Casey and Dan were willing to brave the rain for some umbrella photos. I always love the way they turn out.
I met up with Andrea and Brian this past Fall at the John James Audubon Center for Addison's one year session. It's been so fun watching Addison grow up from her newborn and six month portraits and I was lucky enough to see her again a few weeks ago when she became a big sister! I was getting ready to post her little brother and sister on the blog when I realized I never got a chance to post these photos. So, before the twins get any more additional attention....here's Addison! :)
