Mark, Sarah, Promise, and Isla

So... this family is for sure the one I photograph more than any other, and I absolutely LOVE it!   They are so sweet and wonderful!  (The fact that we are talking about my twin sister's family doesn't make me biased, right?  Hahaha!)  I was so proud of the girls for doing so well!

Poor little Isla wasn't feeling well and that started to come through in the pictures, but she is still seriously SO cute!  Haha  :)

Everyone was checking to make sure Isla was doing okay.  :)

In case I don't say it enough, I love photographing and being a part of your lives!  :)

Zach, Logan, and Landon

I had the privilege of photographing these adorable boys!  I had already photographed the twins right after they were born, but this time I also got to photograph their older brother too.  At first, I think they were a little unsure about me...  The twins obviously didn't remember me and how much fun we had last time.  Haha :)

This is Landon, and he is so sweet!  He was so happy and smiley!  It didn't take him long to warm up to me and the camera.  :)

Landon on the left, and Logan on the right.

Logan is a shy little cutie, but even though he didn't seem to like the camera pointed at him, I was still able to show how sweet he is.  :)

This is Zach, and he is so kind and helpful!  He was the only one of the boys who would wear a Santa hat.  :)

Zach is already turning out to be a handsome young man!  

I was pretty pleased that I got a smile out of all of them at the same time.  :)

I really enjoy photographing this lovely family!  They are full of energy and so much fun to be around; but only after I have had my coffee!  Haha  :)

Isaac Nathaniel

This handsome little man is Isaac!  He has such good style already!  Look at that tie!!  :)

Isaac loves being wrapped in blankets or at least wear a warm onesie, so he didn't really appreciate when he only had a hat to wear.  :)

I had so much fun photographing this little guy!  He is SO cute!  :)

Henrik, Liam, and June

I got to take pictures of these adorable little kids and it was so much fun!  We started in the park where the boys could be boys.

I had the boys sit together for some of it to show the brotherly love between them, which was super sweet!

We then went to the studio where I could show how cute and sweet June is!

To wrap it up, we had all the siblings together for some pictures.  Obviously with the range of ages, it was tricky to get everyone happy at the same time, but what I got was still so precious!  :)

This family is just so sweet!  I really enjoyed spending time getting to know them and take their pictures!  :)

Derek and Kate's Wedding

I am fairly behind on doing this post.  This couple has already gotten their pictures from me a while ago, but I still wanted to take the time to write down some of my memories from the day and show some of my favorite pictures.  :)

So for starters, I was SOOOO blessed to be able to take pictures for Derek and Kate's wedding!  The wedding was beautiful, and the couple is amazing!  The day started out pretty rough from some super bad storms that blew through town the night before.  There were trees down, flooding, and electricity that was out all over town.  Thankfully the locations that the bridal party needed to go to were all open and had power!

The flowers arrived just in time for pictures and they were so beautiful!

Derek and Kate didn't see each other before the wedding, and their reactions when they finally did see each other was so sweet!

They couldn't hide their happiness!  

The "exit" was done indoors due to the weather, and it still was so perfect!  :)

The wedding party had so much fun together, but they did get serious for some pictures.  :)

The bride and groom had a moment to rest after the ceremony, and they just looked so relaxed and happy!

We found a dry area outside that wasn't too windy to get some pictures of this wonderful couple!!

So I know I said earlier that there was power everywhere for this wedding, but the truth is, the reception venue was running solely off of generators.  The room was darker than usual, but there were lots of candles and small lamps everywhere which created a beautiful atmosphere.  :)

Kate and her dad surprised everyone with a choreographed dance which was very well done!

I had SO much fun spending the day with this awesome couple!  I really was so happy and blessed to be able to be their photographer! 

To Kate and Derek, I say CONGRATULATIONS!!  Thank you for letting me be a part of the best day of your lives!  I have thoroughly enjoyed witnessing your relationship grow from dating to engaged to married!  I pray that God continues to bless you both as you grow closer to Him and to each other!  :)

Isla Grace

This is Isla Grace, my new niece.  Maybe I am too biased to say this, but I think she is stunningly beautiful!!!

I love her little smirk!

She was awake for most of our photo session.  She seemed too enthralled by me and my camera to just close her eyes and fall asleep.  I was seriously impressed with how much she would look straight at me from time to time.

She loved the faux fur blankets we laid her in!

She eventually went to sleep and slept quite soundly for the rest of our time together.  I was able to move her around without disrupting her.

I am SO happy that I was able to spend time capturing Isla in this fleeting stage of life.  She won't stay this small forever, but I am sure she will always be just as precious and beautiful!!  :)
