Ya'll...I'm coming up for air!  Sorta!  Our sweet, new little baby is amazing and I will be making his post soon!  Scout Lee Hartsell was born on 8-1- 2017 and we had stolen our hearts!  But seriously, 3 kids is no joke!  Time has officially gotten away from me- and oh yeah, we are still re-doing our house! (you an follow it's insta at @downtownacres).  Life, without question, has been nuts, but we are slowly settling into our new normal.  Sharpe started Kindergarten ( a whole post in and of itself) and FINALLY pre-school started back this week, so there is SO MUCH LIGHT at the end of this long, and very pregnant summer that we had which ended in bringing our new guy home!   I can't wait to share more! Today, there is no time for crying and prepping posts about my children(which is why I would cry) so I'm just going to share some other loveliness instead!

Work-wise, I have been sitting on these images for months just dying to show you!  Wesley and Hayden are getting married in Blowing Rock and we headed to the hills for their engagement session.  We had such a magical time and I can't wait for this wedding next year!  My favorite part of hanging out with them was hearing about their love story- they met at a summer camp when they were SO YOUNG.  Have stuck together all this time, even though they were states apart!  So cute!  I think because Joe and I had somewhat of a whirlwind romance from first meeting to getting married, I have this special love for those who have been together since before they could drive and are making their dreams of marriage come true.  Love this session and these people!

 

I am so sad to see my time with Kelly and Eric come to an end!  We had so many beautiful shoots together + the wedding at Childress Vineyards, which everyone knows is one of my favorite venues.  The day was beautiful, Kelly looked like a dream, and so many friends and family surrounded she and Eric.  I absolutely LOVE the classic and put together look of Eric and his groomsmen- you can never go wrong with a well-tailored navy suit!  Kelly's dress was one of the show-stoppers of the year, you may remember it from her bridal portrait session I blogged a while back.  Enjoy re-living this day and don't forget to watch their fusion vide at the end, too!  Happy Wednesday!

 

So hey, I went completely missing from this blog!  We(me and the kids) took a lot of time off in July and August to enjoy summer and spend time away from home.  I hoped to post more things while out of town, but you know how it goes!;)  There are so many things to blog- get completely excited for the next few weeks! We have some pretty big changes happening in our personal life, so I will be making a "life update" post soon!

Meet Katie and James!  You may remember them from their engagement session and Katie's amazing cherry blossom bridal portrait session.  They chose Alexander Homestead for their wedding, which is settled right in the heart of Charlotte.  It threatened rain ALL day, but it stayed away until everyone was tucked completely into the reception- we were so happy!  Their vows were personal and the joy that flowed from these two was incredible.  Thank you so much for allowing Joe and I to share this day with you!  Also be sure to check out their Photo Fusion Video at the end!  I thin it captured their day perfectly!  Happy Thursday!
