November 14, 2012 and Baby makes 3!

This is the time of year that I usually tell my clients that they’ll hear from me when they’re session is ready, and not for the Blog Post Peek (BPP), as I’m busier than normal and also don’t want to ruin any Christmas gift surprises.

Well, I’m throwing my own rules out the window with this one, and I just don’t care who’s Christmas surprise I ruin!

(Totally kidding… that’d be terrible. What am I, the grinch?! The real gift is expected for the New Year anyway.)

I just had to share some of these images….

 You may recognize these two.

They’ve definitely hung out on the Blog a couple of times, here & here.

I’m so glad they’re here again, this time to document another beautiful milestone in their journey together!

I just can’t wait to meet the newest little Jesse baby!!! ♥

That’s all folks!


November 14, 2012 Hudgins Wedding

Can I just tell you my favorite part of a wedding ceremony?

Rachel and Stuart’s Wedding Ceremony definitely highlighted this one;

That moment, when the Groom’s face goes from nervous and uncomfortable, ‘there’s too many people looking at me‘, to an excited, calm, ‘there she is, let’s do this!‘ when he finally sees his Bride. It’s that unspoken love that gets me every time!

Rachel and Stuart are not only a gorgeous couple, but they have a son who was the cutest little red headed, tux wearing, ring bearer ever! He was so proud to walk down that isle to meet his Dad, that he barely noticed the pews filled with people! It was adorable.

Rachel’s two little sisters were flower girls as well, and not only were they the cutest little precisely focused petal droppers, but they were a huge help in occupying and distracting little Mr ring bearer when needed!

After a beautiful ceremony, I whisked them all away for some cameo’s before the reception.

Then they were off to celebrate!

…and celebrate they did!

A beautiful wedding ceremony, followed by such a fun and equally beautiful reception – what more could you ask for?!

Rachel and Stu, it was an honor to be able to capture such an amazing day in the start of your lives together.

Thank you!


October 29, 2012 Craft Wedding

I can’t even find my own words to describe how beautiful Jay & Jen’s Wedding Day was. Upon meeting to talk and discuss wedding plans, Jen described her wedding vision as;

a warm, colorful, burst of leaves and pumpkins and all that is great about Fall

With so much involvement in the decor, and so many homemade touches everywhere, Jen was determined to make that vision came to life.  That they did, and it was beautiful!

Of course, there were some people that helped to make this such a beautiful day too…

Deciding to meet before the ceremony for photos together and with family, not only gave Jen & Jay a shorter, more private photo opportunity immediately following their ceremony, but also took the edge off a little before the “i do’s”!

I should mention, the decor, certainly wasn’t where the beauty and personalization of this wedding day ended…

From hand made wedding bands by the groom, an unplanned personal escort down the isle for the flower girl, a heart felt speech from childhood friend/best man, Mommy & me dancing, and singing by Jay, as well as his eldest daughter, this wedding was bursting at the seems with not just pretty things an pretty people, but love, and a real family bond. You could feel it.

Jay & Jen, thank you so much for choosing me to capture such a special day in your lives for you!

Enjoy your sneak peek!

October 22, 2012 Cerrato Family

It’s that time of year…
The air is fresh and crisp, the leaves are changing, and it is just B.U.tiful outside!!

Perfect for a stroll with a family and a camera… if I do say so myself!

(luckily, I don’t… and lots of you seem to agree; otherwise I’d be chasing down strangers on walks? Creeeepy! No thanks.)

DSC 6947 1024x678 Cerrato Family

So, while at first glance this image may not have pleaded my case well…

These were not random children I followed along with a camera!

Mom & Dad came along, and they even brought along Bear & Marlie, the family dogs!  After all, if you’re getting family pictures done, why leave half the family at home?

DSC 6888 1 1024x678 Cerrato Family

We had a fun little stroll, exploring the area for nooks and crannies & unique places to pose by, goofing around with the kids, and watching our step verrrrry carefully, as, not only was it a little muddy, but also a popular dog walking area, so… y’know.

We managed to find quite a few sweet spots, and I was IN LOVE with so many images before i even got home!

In fact, it’s taken quite a bit of willpower to share just those sneak peek’s with you!!

October 18, 2012 Little B

This little boy totally stole my heart!!

He’ll steal yours too!

With his funny little personality, smirky grins, and just all around adorable-ness you won’t be able to resist!!

DSC 5803 1 Little B

I’m not even joking – just LOOK at these funny little expressions!!
Mom & Dad are in trouble when the girls catch sight of this one! ;)

DSC 6112 21 1024x512 Little B

Plus, he’s a party animal!

For now though, the only girl on his mind is mom, and his favorite party pal is definitely Dad.

Happy Birthday little man!


October 16, 2012 T&Z West

I just can’t get enough of this Fall sunshine!

On yet another beautiful Fall day, I met Tim & Zach beachside.

With the tide out, we had plenty of squishy-ness to walk through and puddles to hop over – my favorite!!

DSC 5783 1 1024x678 T&Z West

Though brothers, twins even, Tim and Zach certainly have their differences.

Tim made me work for a smile…

One on one time with the camera? I could tell he just wasn’t a fan. (Honestly, neither am I! Yet another reason why I chose a career behind the camera!) So we joked and laughed and tried to make it as painless and fun as possible. I even had to admit, though working for the laughs and comfortable, genuine smiles, he could pull off one killer serious look!

Zach was a different story. He liked that camera time.

He didn’t come right out and say it, but the smiles, smirks and readiness to turn, move and basically do anything I asked…. well that said it for him!

PTM Storyboard 3 Up B2 T&Z West

All in all. we were able to get some great shots with some great personality showing through for both Tim and Zach.

October 14, 2012 Coville Wedding

I recently photographed the Wedding of Mike & Jenn.

We’d met a few weeks before the wedding, and I just couldn’t wait to see in person all the special touches both Mike, Jenn, and family had done in preparation for this day.

The church was beautiful, filled with friends and family and a groom beaming from ear to ear at the sight of his bride to be!

Pictures after the ceremony were fun, fast, and easy!!  Everyone was ready to par-taaaaayyyyy!

Brian and Jodi celebrated their wedding day on October 12, 2002.

I didn’t know them then. We met shortly after the birth of their first born, and seemed to see a whole lot of each other since then!

Not only does Jodi like to get pictures of her children often, she also has all these great ideas, props, and sometimes even costumes to incorporate.  Brian is always such a good sport about it all, (just don’t make him get dirty!), and all three of the kids have been at it since birth. It’s like second nature to them!

DSC 4358 2 LaFountain Family Anniversary

When we met this day, Jodi had the car filled with props and wardrobe changes, and was showing me all these ideas she’d ‘Pinned’.  Brian had that ‘here we go’ grin, and the kids were ready to just hit the beach running!

The phrase of the day was “Only you Jodi!”

DSC 4577 2 LaFountain Family Anniversary

From there on, there was posing, swinging, running, monkey bar climbing, running in the water, jumping off picnic tables, a whole lot of laughter, and most importantly….

DSC 4606 1 1024x1020 LaFountain Family Anniversary

…a love that’s stemmed even further back than the 10 years they’ll soon be celebrating!

Happy Anniversary Brian & Jodi!!

September 19, 2012 Galligan Family

I recently had the pleasure of getting to hang out at the beach with the Galligan family.

It’s been about 3 years since the last time we got together for some pictures, so I was more than happy to be able to get together again and see how much the kids have grown!
And boy had they grown!

DSC 4291 1024x678 Galligan Family

 We moved along the beach pretty quickly, trying to keep each pose more like a ‘new adventure’ for little sister.

I couldn’t have done it without big brother and sister to help me out every step of the way!

DSC 4234 1 1024x678 Galligan Family

One “adventure” was, well, maybe not completely thought out…. and may have fallen apart in slow motion….

DSC 4303 1 1024x678 Galligan Family

You see it, i know you do…. step, step….SPLAT!


What’s a little mud between family?! Right?

We rallied, cheered, and encouraged…. again, with the help of big brother & sister…

DSC 4275 1 1024x678 Galligan Family

 …and when all was said and done, everyone was still smiling!
