A quick peek!

These three adorable children are cousins! The boys are brothers and then the little girl is their cousin. We met up at Hidden Lake Garden's for a quick photo shoot. It was SUCH beautiful day. The thing I love about Hidden Lake Garden's is that it never looks the same! With all the changing greenery it changes so quickly!

Little miss K loves her older cousin E and spent the morning following him around! I thought it was so cute that she was so attached to him. These photos are for their grandma who lives on the other side of the state! I'm sure she will just love these photos of the kiddos! Who wouldn't?! K is such an adorable little girl and 2 handsome boys! Enjoy your sneek peek!!!

Mr. Holiday Model!

Well, we have yet to miss any holiday! And of course Fourth of July is no exception! Here is Drake in his festive outfit! He is sure turning into a little boy and not so much baby! I know I probably shouldn't say that. He is only 6 months old, but gosh where has the time gone? He was just an infant and now he is already on his way to crawling! He is a bundle of personality... and grandma Kathy... the book picture... is just for you!!! For those of you who don't know, Drake's grandma is the media center specialist (librarian) @ Onsted Elem. Kathy, this is my way of saying thank you so much for helping Kenedey get to her AR goals this past year! She/We couldn't have done it without you!

Those eyes....

Jes and family... Thank you so much first of all for being so patient with me getting this sneek peek up for you. Jes was kind enough to book a session for her sister's new little one! These two girls are beautiful!

As you will see from the photos below, Paige has these GORGEOUS blue eyes and this almost white blonde hair! Kaylie the new baby sister was just about the happiest infant I have seen in awhile she was about 1 month old here, I don't think she cried but maybe once when she was hungry! Such a good little girl! Paige you are the BEST big sister EVER! Jes, your gallery will be ready asap!

Sam & Theresa.... MARRIED!!!!

I had the opportunity to photograph an amazing couple and their "dream" wedding. This had to be a favorite for me because the bride, Theresa, was an absolute perfect, natural, and beautiful woman in front of the camera. She WORKED IT to the maxxx!!! The amout of pictures we took for this wedding.... I don't think our fingers were off the camera fire button much! Now that's good stuff!

I knew this wedding would be beautiful..... but once again.... I got my socks ROCKED off!!!! Sam & Theresa thank you for being patient with getting these images up for you. I CANNOT wait for you to see the rest of them. Theresa you were an absolute glamorous bride and honestly I don't think things could have gone smoother!

Sam & Theresa, I am so happy for the both of you. Your love is so obvious and strong when you two look at each other and so comfortable and real all at the same time. Not something we always get to see, but such a special thing when I do. Thank you so much for having Tyler & I be part of your special day. We honestly had so much fun photographing you... it was truly an honor. Congratulations to the both of you! You are going to have a wonderful life together!!!

Some *BLING* to compliment the AMAZING fruit table they had at the reception!

I have this thing....

For OLD Red Barns. I just think they are beautiful and have so much character. I have been challenging myself to try and see some landscape/nature things in photography as just a way to continue to keep my eyes looking for just that difference that everyone looks for in their own photography.

The other night it was about to storm and the kids and I were watching the sky. I just happened to drive by this barn and I decided that I should back up and take a picture of it, so I did. I just love how it turned out.

Well, they FINALLY tied the knot! John (JP) & Katrina have been friends of ours for a lot of years. They had a beautiful wedding last night but... ugh was it... HOT & MUGGY outside. Try putting guys in a tux and vest and jacket... and woah are they miserable! You guys were all troopers with the heat.

Congratulations John, Katrina, & Drew (their son)! We are so happy for all of you! Have a great time in Vegas Baby!

More fun!

I LOVE this pic of Teresa and Brandon!!! I am one of those people who is a "watcher". I just naturally watch people and read body language. It's really just part of who I am. What I LOVE about these two are they are obviously still so in love. It's so awesome to see when you have a family with 2 small children, so often "life" takes over and in the busyness as we all know... is easy to get lost in. T & B your love for each other is such a nice breath of fresh air! Keep smilin' and having fun together! You are so great together.... your love also shines through in your kids.

As you will be able to see, a couple of the people in this sneek peek are from the session posted previously. I am so proud of Teresa (from Salon Breathe, of course!), she got both sides of her and her husbands family together and they toughed out 2 sessions in one day! We did Brandon's fam in the morning and then Teresa's fam in the afternoon. The cool thing about both of these is we just stayed right in their own yards to do these! I love it when we can keep people in their comfort zone, it really does have a tendency to keep people "relaxed" looking in pics!

This Bendele family is just as gorgeous as the Boone family... no wonder Teresa and Brandon have AMAZINGLY stunning children!

You will notice they had the idea to pose in front of the DUMP TRUCK!!! Again another first for me! I love not knowing where my day is going to go... it turned out as a really great background, I like that it kinda tells the story of "them"! Teresa's dad owns Bendele Construction in Cement City so if you have any needs for his type of thing.... be sure to check them out, they are great people!
Check out Brandon's tatoo's he wanted to make sure they were visible! Nice posing on your part Brandon!!! He would being a artist who does tatoos! I hear he does some amazing tatoo's, im sure if you give Teresa a call at the Salon she would be more than happy to put you in contact with him!
While we were there shooting, Teresa's grandpa stopped by, so since we had a 4 generation (of all boys) at that... we grabbed a couple quick shots! How cute was Great Grandpa holding Dylan?!

Lastly, the girls all hopped inside a big tube type thing... errrr maybe a huge drain... yeah I am SO not construction minded... (ya think) ;-) ?! I LOVE LOVE LOVE how Bri threw her hands around her momma and Aunt Michelle for a little pose and we didn't even ask her too... Nice Job Bri!!!

Such a beautiful day!

I was amazed at all the great photos I was able to get today. I was a little unsure because the lighthing was SCARY from a photography standpoint! The day was gorgeous, but the sun was BRIGHT!!! You will likely recognize Teresa (from Salon Breathe) and her adorable children Bre and Dylan! These two kids have the most beautiful eyes and when the sun hits them... they are STUNNING!
We did some photos of Teresa's husband (Brandon)'s family! Here's your sneak peek Boone fam! It was great spending the morning with you! I think you are going to LOVE your photos... they already made T cry! I love it when the photos I take make people cry!!!! Isn't that mean? No but really it just lets me know that I really "captured" them as they are!
Thanks Brandon for grabbing their butt, it made for some great smiles!
