brooklyn | newborn portraiture

There is little I love more in my job than snuggling and photographing squishy little newborns.  Little Brooklyn is the adorable baby sister of Miss Riley who I photographed as a newborn and 1-Year old.  I absolutely love getting the chance to see how much these little cuties have changed, and Riley is just as adorable as when she was born.  She's so full of life and I just know she'll be a great big sister to Brooklyn.  Brooklyn is such a beautiful baby and was so easy going.  Her daddy is a big golfer and couldn't resist bringing in a little golf set to have her photographed with.  This entire family is beyond gorgeous and I can't wait to get a chance to do family portraits for them... hopefully one day soon!

It's so fun to compare siblings!  On the left is baby sister Brooklyn and the right is big sister Riley.

taylor & tyler | destination wedding | chattanooga

This past spring I had the opportunity to fly to Atlanta and second shoot with one of my great friends and AMAZING photographer Sarah of BerryTree Photography.  We got to not only hang out and spend time together, but we got to shoot one of the most amazing weddings ever for the beautiful Taylor and Tyler.  The wedding took place at Black Fox Farms in Chattanooga, TN and it had to have been one of the most amazing venues I'd ever seen.  It's not only a wedding venue, but it's also a nursery.  Taylor was telling us how they drive you around before your wedding and let you choose whatever plants and flowers you want to display at your wedding and reception... and it's all included in the price.  How awesome is that?  I must admit I was a bit lot jealous of the amazing green and woodsy grounds.  We definitely don't have venues like this round these parts.  If hubby and I ever decide to renew our vows you better believe this venue will be at the top of our list!

We drove from Atlanta up to Chattanooga and spent the day with one of cutest couples ever.  Taylor put SO much attention into the details of her wedding, and almost everything was DIY.  It was definitely worth all the hard work she put into everything becuase every last detail was perfectly executed and added to the ambiance of the wedding.  It was so fun to spend the day shooting along side one of the most fabulous wedding photographers there is, and I'm so blessed Sarah asked me to join her for the day.  And now for what you're all waiting for... the wedding day... through the eyes of a 2nd shooter.  ;-)

hugs and kisses | family portraiture

Every so often you meet a family that just makes you smile.  This beautiful family was so in love and I had so much fun capturing them just being together.  They had never had family photos done so grandma gifted them a photo session for their son's first birthday.  Their session was filled with kisses, hugs, and giggles... and I enjoyed every moment of it!  It was so great to capture these memories and give them something to freeze these moments in time forever.

josh & sarah | engagement

The week after Christmas it's a family tradition to head over to Palm Springs for some relaxation with my family. This year we had the privilege of meeting my brother's new girlfriend Sarah. Unbeknownst to Sarah, we all knew that Josh (aka "The Deaf Chef") would be proposing a few days later when they headed back to Sarah's hometown in NY.

Josh had asked me if I would mind taking some pre-engagment pictures of him and Sarah, and of course I was more than thrilled to do so! We were staying at an amazing time share right on a golf course, and surrounded by mountains. It was definitely the perfect setting for some fun and romantic images.

I've gotta say, Sarah is such a sweetheart and I'm thrilled my brother has found someone great to love and share his life with. The love between these two is just so apparent and they really are full of joy when they are together. Oh, and for anyone wondering... she said YES! Congrats you guys, and welcome to the family Sarah! I can't wait to make many more memories with you in the future.

If you'd like to check out Josh & Sarah's proposal photos you can do so on Cassi Claire's Website. Josh hired Cassi to be there and capture the proposal as it unfolded and to take some fun photos in NYC afterwards. Make sure you take a peek!
