You may remember Miss Hannah Kate from a previous post last year. She just welcomed her baby sister into the world and I had the pleasure of taking their pictures last week. What beautiful girls they are!! Hannah Kate has a big personality. She is a hilarious, outgoing little girl! She's so much fun to be around. I had a great time photographing them and their mommy. Hudson went with me to play with HK and they went swimming afterward. He loved "Kannah Kaaayte"! I would be perfectly happy with either of these little cuties as a daughter-in-law! ;)

I had the great pleasure of being a part of Ben and Amanda's wedding day.
I love these two! They are a precious couple. Ben is hilarious and Amanda is a doll. I was so excited when Amanda contacted me to tell me that they wanted me to photograph their wedding day. She also sent me a couple of super cute pics of her and Ben. Who does that? Amanda does and I love her for it!
The wedding day went off so well which I'm sure is due to Amanda's organization skills, Ben's easy going personality and their sweet families who worked so hard. Everything was beautiful. I loved the facility. It was modern with a little rustic touch. It was perfect. The decorations were gorgeous and Amanda chose beautiful colors for the day.
I could go on, but I know you just want to see the pics and for me to hush. :) So enjoy the pics of this sweet couple. Thank you again, Skelton's, for letting us be a part of your day. Lantis and I enjoyed every minute. Congratulations!!

Groomsmen love me when I make them stand in the broiling sun in black tuxes. I can guess I'm probably saying, "Now. You stand right. here. just like this."

Amanda, her mom and I had some fun and laughs during her bridal shoot. We got booted out of one garden, but quickly found another that would accept us. She and I were asked if we were twins...more than once. And no, to answer your question she is not my long lost sister, but I'm honored that you think so. ;)
These are some precious little family members of mine. These are my cousins' kids. We met yesterday at a local park literally in between rain showers/storms. We had a small window and we made a run for it. I'm so glad we did because the rainy day light was beautiful! I couldn't ask for better light than this. This is exactly why when you book a session with me I don't sound one bit worried about the weather. Cloudy days are my friend! We had a great (quick) trip to the park and I enjoyed seeing these beautiful children.

SHE'S GRADUATING FROM LAW SCHOOL!!! I'm so proud of this chick. I remember when she first started toying with the idea, put it off, then made the commitment. I had just found out I was pregnant with Hudson. I remember thinking what different directions our lives were headed at the time, but that didn't matter. I knew we'd still be best friends if she was moving to Africa! Now here we are...a child, and a law degree later. We've both had many sleepless nights, highs and lows, and extremely stressful days in the last three years, but for very different reasons. Mine caused by motherhood and her's from writing papers, reading, studying, and general law school hell. Ha! Through it all we've only been a phone call, email, gchat, or text message away. I'm so thankful to have a friend who is not only smart, inspiring, goal driven and hard working, but also incredibly loving, honest and loyal.
Since photos are obviously very close to my heart I twisted Rachel's arm into letting me take some graduation photos of her. I needed to mark this milestone in my way--with my camera. We went to her school, which just so happens to be beautiful, and we had a fun little post-exam fun together.
Rachel's boyfriend, Ryan, tagged (tagged? is that a word?) along to join in the fun. I love their smiles in this one. Oh, wait. I forgot to mention that he was handsome too? My bad.
