This past fall brought some beautiful families in front of my camera. I just adore this one! I have been taking this families photos since Jack was 1! And now he will start Kindergarten in the fall! Crazy! He and Hayes are two of my favorite little men…and I love watching them grow all the more now that I will see my two boys do the same. This fall we are going to be doing our portraits a little differently- announcing our fall portraits dates through our newsletter, so make sure you are all signed up on our email list. You can click here to get on the list. Have a look at this beautiful family- I love every minute I get to spend with them!
A fews year ago I shot Natasha's wedding....and that is when I absolutely fell in love with this family! Micalea, Tom, and their whole family are some of the most loving and giving people we have ever gotten the privilege to work with. We feel like one of the family when we walk in the door- even all the way from Charlotte up to Portsmouth, VA! We are so grateful for clients like these.
After shooting Natasha's wedding, we secretly hoped we would get to shoot Micaela's...so I was SO pumped to get an email from Micaela telling me that she and Tom were engaged! This wedding was one for the record books- Micaela left no detail unturned. A fabulous venue, amazing florals and design...and lots of little surprises all day long. We loved getting to see everyone again and be a part of their special day! One moment I will always remember from this wedding was that during their first dance- they had written notes to each other that played over the track in their own voices...in alll of the weddings we have shot, this was a crazy amazing moment. The music, what they wrote...chilling and so incredibly romantic. Hardly a dry eye in the place. I will never forget it! Check out some of my favorites. Gosh, hard to believe this was in the fall- feels like 5 minutes ago! Happy First Day of Spring everyone!
FINALLY, 7 weeks later, posting some of Shepherd's newborn pics and his birth announcement! As usual, I had grandiose plans of all the shots we were going to take, but alas we had the snow-mageddon and life was just crazy...and we forgot how super intense those first days home can be…so we just sorta got what we got when he was 11 days old. I am still thankful for these shots…he is already SO HUGE. If I had to guess, I would say he's close to 14 pounds now at just 7 weeks. We grow 'em big around here! Enjoy some of these shots of our sweet boy and new family of 4. Still hard to believe!
We took pics of Sharpe in this stroller every three months his first year, so starting the same tradition with the new guy.
Super attractive shot of all my kids;) Pretty sure this was right after Sharpe had to get a "talking to" because he wouldn't get near the baby. Yup, it was one of those photo shoots.
Trying to get a baby, a 2 year old and a dog all to cooperate. Darby just wanted to give kisses. Then we FINALLY got Sharpe to give the baby a kiss. I'm telling ya, those first days he wanted NOTHING to do with the new kid.
"Family Shot", I'll take it. Boy do we look tired (and puffy!!) but hey! That's us with an almost two week old:)
