Tanya and Ryan couldn’t have picked a more gorgeous fall day for a wedding.  The sun was shining, and the weather was just perfect for an outdoor ceremony.  This wedding party knew how to have fun, and the smiles were contagious.  The day started with the happy news that Ryan’s sister was in labor, so the day had even more reason to celebrate. Tanya and Ryan have certainly found true love in each other, and I wish them all the happiness in their life together!w blog1 Tanya & Ryan {Married}w blog2 Tanya & Ryan {Married}w blog3 Tanya & Ryan {Married}w blog4 Tanya & Ryan {Married}w blog5 Tanya & Ryan {Married}w blog6 Tanya & Ryan {Married}w blog7 Tanya & Ryan {Married}w blog8 Tanya & Ryan {Married}w blog9 Tanya & Ryan {Married}w blog10 Tanya & Ryan {Married}w blog11 Tanya & Ryan {Married}w blog12 Tanya & Ryan {Married}w blog13 Tanya & Ryan {Married}w blog14 Tanya & Ryan {Married}w blog15 Tanya & Ryan {Married}w blog16 Tanya & Ryan {Married}WEB SIG 10002 Tanya & Ryan {Married}

What a gorgeous fall day to be outside!  Lily and Gabriel were so much fun to photograph, and they were the easiest kids I’ve photographed in a long time – always smiling and listening intently to my suggestions.  I think they had fun too!

Little Sasha is as sweet as she can be, and only 6 days old!  She was awake for quite awhile, and then drifted off and let me get out the tutu! Congratulations Kate and Dan – she is a beautiful addition to your wonderful family!

This wedding and this couple are proof that fairy tales do come true!  Annie and Jack just glow when they are together.  Seriously, you can just feel it when you are around them. The weather was cold, windy and cloudy, but there was nothing but smiles and happiness all around. Their wedding was truly a celebration of the love they share, and the love their family has for them.  It was just beautiful, and I was honored to be a part of it.  Congratulations Jack and Annie, and happiness always!

Here is Samuel, so sweet and adorable at age 1.  He was so calm and collected, but we managed to get some giggles too.  Happy first birthday Samuel!

Little Miles was three weeks old when he had his session, but he was still tiny and precious as can be.  He slept like a little angel, and his proud big sister Maxine was a good helper.  He is blessed to be born into such a great family.  Congratulations to all of you!

On a freezing cold Saturday these two just melted my heart!  Annie and Jack have been together since 10th grade, and when you see them together you just know they were meant to be.  They have such an easiness about them, and the afternoon was filled with laughter and smiles.  Jack has a passion for skydiving, and his bright yellow parachute was a perfect accent to the bright white snow.  Hopefully the cold and snow will all be a memory, and we will have lots of green in time for your May wedding – I can’t wait!

What a celebration this wedding was.  Darcy and Bernard radiated joy and love from the moment they saw each other, and their family was equally as joyous.  The day was cold and a bit windy, but there were no complaints, just smiles and laughter all around.  Thanks for letting me document your lovely day!d b wedding1 Darcy + Bernard {Married}d b wedding2 Darcy + Bernard {Married}d b wedding3 Darcy + Bernard {Married}d b wedding4 Darcy + Bernard {Married}d b wedding5 Darcy + Bernard {Married}d b wedding6 Darcy + Bernard {Married}d b wedding101 Darcy + Bernard {Married}d b wedding7 Darcy + Bernard {Married}d b wedding8 Darcy + Bernard {Married}d b wedding9 Darcy + Bernard {Married}WEB SIG 1000 Darcy + Bernard {Married}

These four beautiful girls had an assignment for middle school language arts.  It involved a fashion show, a cat theme, and lots of work together as a group.  I had the honor of photographing them, and even got a mention in the photo credits of their assignment. What fun!
