I could not be any happier for this expecting momma and her hubs. And I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned to Brittany on multiple occasions how much I could not wait for her to have a baby! She has coached in our youth cheering program right by my side for at least five years now and if her adoration and support are any inclination as to what kind of parent she will be….well….she is going to be AMAZING! And speaking of amazing, Britt and Mike completely rocked their beach maternity session <3

I’m beyond excited to share this little peek from Alyssa and Derrick’s wedding, and it was definitely no small feat to narrow the images down for this post! Alyssa and Derrick have got to be one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever worked with. Their love for each other is evident in every little interaction and they are super laid back and fun. Which only means that their day was bound to be fun too. And sweet.

From Derrick tearing up watching Alyssa walk down the aisle to Derrick’s stepmom offering a tissue to his mom during the ceremony, and Alyssa’s dad literally sweeping her off her feet during their dance and then following up with their father-daughter fun choreographed number, I fought back my own tears. And as I watched the most intense bouquet toss and Derrick overcome his fear of garter removal with some killer dance moves; laughing tears. But perhaps the sweetest and funniest moment was witnessing Memere digging in her purse for cash so she could relentlessly cut in during the dollar dance.

Alyssa and Derrick, it has been such an honor to get to know the both of you and to photograph one of the biggest days of your life. I hope you enjoy these and here’s to many many more years of ridiculous happiness <3

What better way to start your Tuesday than with another fun cake smash session?! During the scheduling process for cake smash sessions, I ask if there is a particular color scheme or theme preferred and we design the main part of the session around that. So when I found out that Jack was into Batman, I quickly enlisted my husband’s artistic abilities to created a fun backdrop. Of course, the one and only time that I’ve had a baby wipe cake on the backdrop was this one, lol!

Happy Birthday, Jack!

It’s a little hard to believe that Miss Emmalyn is already one year old, and I had so much fun with her in the studio. And she totally rocked her session even if she was feeling a bit under the weather. Here are a few of my faves…

It has been quite some time since I actually shot a session in quaint little Vaughan Woods, so when Erica requested it for her family session of course I was excited. And this just also happened to be the place where I got married;) The weather wasn’t looking all that promising, but we managed to dodge a few raindrops on our way into the trails and Nolan and Cole were the best behaved toddlers during their session. Nolan also took things a bit further and was super entertaining with some silly faces and his crazy eyes, which just made for even more fun photos.

There seems to be this unwritten rule out there in the universe as to the “right” steps to take to become a “real” family. And then there are a few amazing and brave souls out there, who sometimes miss a turn in life or somehow skip a step or two….or maybe there are a few of us who knew exactly what they were doing and did things a little different on purpose. Whichever path we choose, there are challenges either way, and I don’t really believe that doing things “traditionally” is necessarily easier on your life. I do, however, believe that it takes a strong person to carve their own path, to ignore what others think is best for them and to find simply joy in their own little perfect life no matter how imperfect it can sometime seem. Ilea, thanks for asking me to capture your cute little family and sharing a little bit of yourself and your story. Your handsome little boys are going to be some amazing men someday being raised by a mom with such willpower and grace<3

It only took one reschedule due to chilly weather and sick kiddoes and one more for a random May snowfall before we FINALLY had an amazing morning to play in the gardens at Evie and Flo’s house. These girls are just simply the sweetest and I could’ve followed them around all day if they wouldn’t eventually get tired of being photographed. Here are a few faves…
