What a beautiful day! The sun was out, the temp (at least in the sun) was bearable and I had a beautiful couple downtown G.R. for a super fun engagement shoot. I was just in LOVE with Dana’s darling lace dress, and Cory was a fun guy to talk too. We discovered old and new favorite locations downtown (how have I never been to the top of a parking garage before? Like, uh… seriously the best thing ever.) And did I mention there was sun? AND bearable temperatures? Ahhh I can’t wait for their wedding all the other weddings this year!
Good afternoon everyone!
I’ve seemingly been around Alice, the tiny little newborn a lot now lately! She’s still so itty bitty, but it’s crazy to see how much she’s even grown already in one week. :) It was good hanging out with Laura and Dereks pets again too! Haha… poor Burt, always wanting to be the center of attention.
Guess who’s here? The most perfect bundle of joy ever! I’m so glad she waited until a week after Laura’s maternity session :D Definitely look forward to more photos of this precious little girl as she grows! What an amazing thing to have as my 300th blog post!
Ah, why can’t the weather seem to behave eh? It was so warm and lovely yesterday when of COURSE I had no shoots, but today it was sooo cold and semi cloudy. Didn’t affect how amazing these images turned out though, like… seriously.
It’s always great to hear from couple’s who have either been in or attended previous weddings I’ve shot! Lisa was actually in the wedding party of Alyssa and Nathaniel last June :D (another one of those cloudy/sunny days… I tell ya, the weather likes doing that to me – haha!) We started with Lisa and Jack downtown at one of my favorite haunts which happens to be the GRAM, around the other side than I usually shoot. It’s always great to vary it up a little and I found about a bazillion new places that all equal my favorite. Plus I adore the great addition of color that Lisa brought with here bright yellow coat! Brightened up the city just the perfect amount. We then drove down to Prairie Wolf Park (and it got MUCH colder sadly) and they trooped through that like pros. It was great to see the park covered in snow, but not fun to tromp through it finding all the thin and then thick sheets of snow. Enough of me talking though – Enjoy some lovely photos of some beautiful people!
Wait wait wait, it’s march? Since I’ve last posted so many things have been happening! It’s hard to keep track of time when I’m not in full blown wedding season (which starts in Tennessee in April this year!) because I can tell when a week is up when the next wedding appears. It’s been a cold winter this year too – so we’ve all been cooped up inside for who know’s how long now. It was time to get shooting again!
I’ll start this post off with a few photos I took this previous fall. Good friends of ours (a former wedding couple from 2010!) mentioned they may need photos again soon… I was so excited to hear they were expecting! I didn’t post any of these because I had to wait a little for them to announce officially, but I figure I’ll show a few announcement photos to set the mood! Plus, when we shot these it was warm, and I think we all need a little warmth right now :D
So! Fast forward to photos of today. It was cold. VERY cold. Did I mention that winter isn’t over yet? Because, seriously guys, it’s not over yet. They have the cutest nursery for this little one – a room I mean, I could even live in (is it weird to say that? because I don’t care, this room was adorable) We got a few (okay, a billion) detail shots, which are always my favorite and moved on to a more (colder!) location for a few outside shots. And and and! The sun was even out. It was a good day :D
