I know that I’ve said this before, but I really do just love seeing my wedding couples come back for photos with their growing families.  It’s wonderful and humbling to be there when two people start their married lives together, and then to be able to see the children that bring into the world.  I’m telling you, it might make me a sap, and I don’t care. (For the record, I cry during hallmark commercials and any Sarah McLaclan dog charity ad.)

Ted and Teresa, you make a stunning family and I just love that I was able to spend a few hours with you on such a busy day!

It’s always such an honor to have a session of mine featured among the gorgeous and highly curated images of On to Baby.  Susie’s eye for all things family and baby is just perfection.  Thank you for including Jessica’s maternity session!

When Jessica, one of my favorite brides, called me to say she had a baby and wanted photos, I was pretty excited.  When she told me she wanted them to be on her boat, I nearly fell over with excitement.  There are few things I love MORE than seeing my past brides start families, but one of them is shooting on the water.  (Seriously, it’s a sickness)

Thank you, Jessica, for having me back.  Don’t be alarmed if your boat goes missing….. I’m just borrowing it.  :)

Seeing my work grace the pages of Style Me Pretty has pretty much made my year. Abby and her team have created one of the most recognizable and influential wedding blogs around and I am so excited that they chose to feature Cory and Andrea’s wedding. Saying I’m thrilled to be included would be a gross understatement!

I love that my early spring sessions are filled with so many soon to be babies.  Maternity season seems to be in full bloom and it’s So. Much. Fun!

It was such a pleasure to spend the afternoon with Jill and Craig as they look forward to welcoming their first baby in just a few short weeks.  It almost (almost) made me wish that I’d have a chance to be pregnant once more.  Just to feel those last precious baby kicks.  And daydream about what the family is going to be like once he makes his debut.

Thank you both for sharing your joy and anticipation with me!  It was wonderful to experience your excitement.

**Peeks head in and looks around**

I’m embarrassed to say that it’s been nearly a month since my last blog post.  FOR SHAME!  Where has the time gone?  How is it already nearly the middle of March?  2014 is shaping up to be one crazy, fun, and eventful year.  I have so many big things to share!  And a few really incredible projects in the works.  It’s an incredibly wonderful feeling to know that my brides and clients this year are seriously the best and to have a plate full of inspiring, personal work to tackle on the side.  Really, for any of you that are still around (Mom?), thank you.  Thank you for your support, your comments and your emails.  I’m still here, I promise!

So, back to business.

There are some times that I leave a shoot, and it takes everything in me to not run screaming and fist pumping from my client’s house all the way to my computer. There are some sessions that I can just feel that the images we created and captured are just that exciting. There is a euphoric anxiety that just continues from shot to shot and pose to pose.  This shoot was DEFINITELY one of those exiting ones.

Jess is a long time friend, the creative genius behind my branding, and an all around sweet mother to be. (With baby #4!) She was incredibly sweet to let me dress her up, throw flowers in her hair and then prance her around her house. Thank you Jess for being open to all of my crazy ideas!

Since it’s Valentines Day, and everyone around me is filled with love and candy, it seems only fitting that this ridiculously cute wedding make it on the blog today.

I can’t tell you how excited I was to shoot Cory and Andrea’s wedding.  These two just seem like the funniest, nicest, most entertaining couple out there! (I’m not kidding when I say I want to be friends with most of my clients.  I really and truly think a night out with these two would be a hoot and a half.)  Andrea clearly chose customs and details that meant a lot to them, and as a result their wedding was one of the most genuine I’ve seen.

Thank you, thank you for letting me be a part of your magical day.  I wish you two much love and happiness!
