Z's Lifestyle Cake Smash

Few things are sweeter {and messier} than those first birthday smash cakes and we LOVE them!  We get asked all the time about first birthday sessions and where to do the cake smash and how all of that works.  After all, you KNOW you don't want to clean it up!

Most of the time we do cakes smashes in studio, but I must admit, I really love taking the mess outdoors and letting the little ones loose!  There's just something about the fresh air, bright colors, and the freedom to just be.  Little Z's session was everything and more and I was thrilled to have her back behind my camera!  We love our return customers so much and getting the chance to build friendships with those we serve!

Happy Birthday Little One!

Double the BIRTHDAY fun!

TWINS!!!

If you know me personally, you know that I myself and am a twin and I love all things twins!  I mean it really is the best thing in the world and I could go on for hours about why!  So getting to take pictures of twins was a real treat.

But more seriously I was so blessed and humbled by this session because their dad and I grew up together and have known each other for almost 20 years! (Am I seriously old enough to say that?!). When their sweet mother had them, I remember praying so many prayers for these two and it was so wonderful to be a part of celebrating their first year!  So to their parents, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for asking me to take these!

Haley + Nathan

They say that April showers bring May flowers...but they don't tell you about the surprise cold fronts and below freezing temperatures!

Haley and Nathan had the most beautiful wedding just outside of Oxford at the Camp Hopewell chapel with the reception at The Nest B&B.  (One of my favorite and so underrated venues in the Oxford area!)  What no one expected was the cold, or should I say FREEZE, front that came through to help them celebrate.  I can honestly say that I have never seen a bride more calm in more frustrating circumstances and these two made the most of a very cold situation and they celebrated like it was 75 degrees outside!

Thanks for having me there that day Haley & Nathan! :)

Mary Grace + Matt

I love October weddings and I absolute adore couples who have October weddings.  If you ask me, it is the best month of the year to get married!

I instantly fell in love with these two and the excitement over their wedding day is REAL you guys!  When we did their engagement session there was rain and the promise of a massive thunderstorm, but they were not shaken!!  (Can we say go with the flow??)  Its a dream when couples are as easy going and fun to work with as these two and I just know their wedding day won't be anything shy of amazing and perfect!

Chip - Class of 2018

What an exciting time of year it is!  We have so many freshly graduated seniors among us and I can't wait to see what this class is going to do!  This young man right here is GOING PLACES!  

I had the privilege of doing his older sister's wedding earlier this year (Grace + Tim) and have known Chip for years as he is one of my youngest sister's best friends.  Needless to say this session was dear to my heart and I'm so thrilled to share a handful of my favorites!
