This sweet little girl was born near Christmas last year and I just realized I never posted her story. When I heard she was going to be born between Christmas and New Year’s I was a little worried about the timing and making sure I’d be in town for her newborn photos, but it was worth it! Isn’t she beautiful?! Frilly pink tutu compliments of the new mother and grandmothers : )
Mom and dad were both so proud!!
And of course I have a soft spot for dads holding newborns. Gets me every time.
Anna is the sister of one of my best friends. When she called me to do her newborn photos, I was ecstatic! I’d already met the rest of her family and couldn’t wait to meet her, Matt and the new baby. We had a tiny window of opportunity before Anna’s dad and husband both had to return to work, but we were able to find a day between Christmas and New Year’s when everyone was stateside. Perfect! (And I love that we were able to work Matt’s flight suit into one of the shots!!)
My good friend and fellow photographer Jessica Raney asked me to second shoot a wedding for her in South Carolina last weekend. The bride and groom were super nice and the wedding was beautiful. After a week of worry with snow and ice trapping everyone inside, the wedding went off perfectly! The wedding was held in a century old Catholic Church and reception followed in a cool barn just a few minutes away.
Justin decided to propose to Jenny on the same spot they had their first kiss. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect. The trees had begun to turn and the weather was perfect in Piedmont Park. She was so surprised by the proposal and both are excited to plan the wedding. Here are some of my favorite shots from the day.
Kristen found me through a friend at the gym. I LOVE referral clients. It’s so much fun to work with someone that loves photography and is looking forward to their shoot. Poor little guy was teething so we had to work around a few tears, but later that day he took his first steps. Yay!!
While they took a minute to warm up to me, Alex and Parker were a blast to shoot. They are all boy, too. They spent the entire time running, collecting dead leaves, and gathering sticks. Oh, and the shot of the two of them together quickly became a wrestling match! Here are a couple of my favorites:
