Life is full of so many full circle moments lately! Mary Chandler was a bridesmaid in Katelyn's wedding- oh how I adore when past bridesmaids turn brides! When we did their engagement sessions last fall, I met Will and learned he was going on Young Life staff. How fun! Well, then, at MC's bridal portrait, I learned Will had been placed on staff in Salisbury! Where I was on staff for three years! So fun! The people in Salisbury are THE BEST and I know they are going to make these two newlyweds feel right at home and part of the family. And what a gift Salisbury is getting in Will! I loved my time getting to work with these two and their wonderful families! Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day- and also their Photo Fusion at the end! Don't forget to take a look. Happy Monday!
Love my sweet, adorable, in love couples! If you are happy, love spending time together, think each other are just the cutest, and love smiling...then please call me! Cydney and Colin are the perfect LLP couple! I loved meeting them and spending time together getting to know them before their wedding which is coming up VERY SOON! Colin plays baseball out of town for most of the year, so we had to wait until he was off to finally get together and take their engagement photos...but it was worth the wait! It was only fitting to do them at their alma matter and the place where they met. Excited for you two and can't wait to shoot your wedding! Happy Thursday!
School. It was time for it to start. I love my boys. I love being with them, I love teaching them things, I love learning with them....But school (pre-school aka mothers morning out aka 3.5 hours of childcare) is VERY necessary for our life. And by very necessary, I mean SOMEBODY IS ABOUT TO GET SHOT IF SCHOOL DOES NOT START RIGHT NOW! After Labor day?! Who's idea was that?! (please, tell me I am not alone in this?!). Anywho:) Even as I write this I realize I'm sad when they are in school because I don't get to see them! Amazing what 3 weeks of childcare will do for the psyche!
I wanted to post their first day photos before Christmas got here. And I never posted Sharpe first and last day of school last year pics...so here they are! And here is Sharpe's FIRST first day of school if you want to look back. And Second year of school. I love looking at pics and comparing them to what Shepherd looks like! They are right about 6 weeks apart as far as their birthdays go. So they share the same season of clothes, I just have to remember Sharpe had 6 more weeks of winter than Shepherd has with the way his birthday falls. So, all that to say Shepherd is starting school about 6 weeks earlier than the age Sharpe was when he started. These are my sweet little guys!
Sharpe First Day of school and last day of school 2013-2014. I would say this was a crazy growing year- not just in how he looked (little bald baby) but in his language and capabilities as well! Sharp has A LOT of words for his age and he just blossomed at school! He loved talking about the classroom pet- a goldfish and hanging out with his favorite teacher Ms. Hunter.
What is crazy is even though this was just 20 days ago I took this photo, Shepherd is sitting up completely unassisted, crawling ALL OVER THE PLACE, bonking his big ole head on anything he can find and going from his back to sitting up all on his own. The amount of development in three weeks is so astonishing to me!
Always entertained by his brother.
Love these little munchkins!
Goodness, can't believe it has be 2!!!!! years and now sweet Cannon is 3! I just adore this family. Cannon is the best little guy and I always enjoy the time spent with Justine and Jeremy. We had the most perfect morning for our shoot(all of those families who don't think they can swing a morning....you might should reconsider;)) Amazing light, children who are still excited for the day and cooler temps...although that last one hopefully won't be a problem for too much longer! Enjoy some of our favorites from our time together. I think a few of these are going to have to be enlarged for the studio. Love them! Happy Birthday Cannon!
Working with Morgan and Sam this past year has been so much fun! They are one of those couples that I actually sorta hate to see the wedding come and go because I know I won't have as many opportunities to see them! Their wedding in Blowing Rock was just pretty as a picture (see what I did there??;)). Morgan and her maids were such a dream to work with and Sam and the guys made the day so fun! The rain held off and left us with the mountain fog…which made for some amazing moments. Their fusion is one of my favorite ones to date! Check it out at the bottom of this post. Morgan and Sam- hope the summer has been kind to you sweet newlyweds. Hope to see you at a friends wedding, soon!
