Family in the Countryside

Family pictures usually include those people in groups with the closest connections. The session is wonderful, fun and calm.

There are generations. Grandparents smile in pride next to their grandchildren.

The photos often include moms and dads next to their children who are all-too-fast growing, changing, learning, and sometimes teaching us.

On occasion, the family pictures also include the special family members – and that’s when things literally go to the dogs! Literally.

This is my favorite of the family!

This is a family I am honored to know and to be able to photograph.

Something Blue, Many Things Special

The wedding day of Sarah and Philip began and ended in spectacular, sun-filled weather that followed several days of chilly, rainy weather. Their something blue may have been the sky. Or, it could have been the flowers and dresses. It may have been the location – the Something Blue Berry Farm which provided a perfect country setting to their day.

Here is a look at some of the many moments that took place that day.

What an amazing day! Sarah and Philip, it was my absolute pleasure to photograph the special moments from your day. Please find the rest of your online album here.

The Details Before

The recent wedding of Sarah and Philip began in the morning hours at the Something Blueberry Farm with so many perfect details, smiles and plenty of sunshine.

The beautiful lace covered dress was waiting in the dressing room, carefully ready for Sarah.

The shoes were perfect for the outdoor, country wedding.

And the rings sparkled in the bright and welcome sunlight.

The flowers were ready to be held.

And so many perfect things were waiting…

…Waiting for the day to begin, including a beautiful bride.

I love sharing these quiet moments before the crowds arrive and the music begins. These minutes of excited calm before the vows and the food are so special. Images from the rest of the day will be here soon.

Turning One in the World

When you are one year old, you may be little, but chances are good that you have very strong feelings about those important things in life.

Sports.  You love sports.  Specifically balls that roll and can be thrown.

You have that one special friend who goes everywhere with you…

…and who makes sure you are safe, warm, and have plenty of puppy kisses.

You have those really super special big people who hold you when you’re scared or tired, help you put your super stylish clothes on, feed you, and just really make you feel extra important all the time.

You love all of that for sure. Being one is so much fun!

But, when you are one, you maybe are not so in love with that gooey sticky feeling of frosting on your fingers.

And that’s ok because you’re super adorable.  Happy journeys little man.  I hope you enjoy your second year of life as much as your first.  Please find the rest of your photos here.
