August 29, 2014 & Baby makes 3!

I’m loving the change I’ve made this year to switch my focus toward Weddings. It’s been amazing being able to focus my time and energy capturing such a momentous day in someone’s life. Quite often, however, those’s someone’s decide to expand their family and create a little one of their own. So what do I do when I get a call to photograph their new baby?

Well I do it! Duh.

Some rules were meant to be broken! If my own rule keeps me from getting to capture (& hold and snuggle) a new and adorable little baby, not to mention capture another momentous event in these someone’s lives…. well then that rule has got to go!

So here is the quite adorable Olivia:

SO worth a rule change! Right?!

August 23, 2014 Rennie Wedding

I try not to be too repetitive in these Wedding posts, as it’s just too easy to say that every wedding I’ve photographed was beautiful and personal and so very touching…. because they are. They really all are, despite how completely different each and every Wedding is, I’m always brought to tears by someone, I’m always excited to catch the little details that have thoughtfully been put into the day, and there’s always a look on the Groom’s face, or sometimes maybe just his eyes, when he sees his Bride that I just live to capture.

This Wedding was no different. Except it was.

Paul and Abbie (ok, mostly Abbie, but Paul did help!) put so much thought into every detail of their Wedding Day. What started out as a “no theme” Wedding, quickly turned into this crafty, shabby chic, kind of beautiful DIY Wedding theme. It couldn’t have been more perfect, and was amazing to capture.

Their ceremony, officiated by a close childhood friend of Abbie’s, with readings from another friend, as well as Paul’s daughter, were heartfelt and touching, and, you guessed it – I found myself teary and desperate to blink them away so as not to miss a moment!

Then there’s the look. Paul may have been wearing sunglasses, but his smile was clearly ear to ear from the moment he laid eyes on her. I imagined him recalling that sign in his head; ‘Yep, here comes my girl.’

So how was it different?

Paul’s Best Man was truly man’s best friend. His dog walked him up the aisle and stood by his side. Instead of a flower boutonniere, she wore a burlap ‘Best Dog’ handkerchief of sorts, and she wore it well!

Paul and Abbie also had the only ceremony that I’ve ever photographed, or even witnessed, that started off with a selfie! It was hilarious, seemed to lighten pre-ceremony jitters, and even tapped into my strange love of photographing people taking photos… win!

I honestly can’t say enough about Paul & Abbie’s Wedding Day (clearly). It was such a beautiful day, filled with love, laughter and smiles throughout, a great reflection of who Paul and Abbie are, and it was all shared by happy, supportive and loving family and friends…

Who could ask for more?

August 8, 2014 Twins!

So we know I love babies…. I get that “empty arm syndrome” or whatever, whenever they’re near!!

Now picture this: TWIN. BABY. BOYS.

Yayyyy me!

I was so happy to get this referral (Thanks Rich!) and to be able to photograph these two!

At four months, they weren’t quite sitting on their own, and were sometimes a little reluctant with the smiles… and while there were some places in the house, and an outfit we didn’t get to, I almost left feeling like, “did I get what we wanted?”

There’s always that point when babies, kids… sometimes grownups, are just done. The boys had done a great job and were super patient with me… I just had to go with my gut that what we had was IT.

Wait for it…..
