This family is one of my favorites. They have so much love and patience and respect for each other. It's the best thing to photograph. I captured big brother Leo's newborn session last year and I was crossing my fingers that I'd get to photograph another of Del and Andrea's babies. My wish came true and Miss Parker was just as much of a dream as her brother. I allllmost shared every photo from this session but decided to go with my favorites or my favorites. Enjoy the sweetness!
Photos at sunset are my favorite, and when Kalyn told me that's what she really wanted for her family session, I crossed my fingers and toes that we would get an awesome golden glow! Mother Nature sure did deliver. We had the most beautiful spring day to hang out at Wade Oval.
This little family is so sweet, and there was no shortage of kisses, hand holding, hugs and maybe a few jelly beans. :) Kalyn is a super talented photographer herself, so it was such an honor to document these four! Enjoy the glowy goodness.
There are few things I love more than photographing a past bride and groom with their first baby. Kelly and Steve are going to be the best parents! Welcome to the world, Remi!
Kristen and Dan traveled from Chicago to Aruba to get married in April. And Nathan and I were lucky enough to photograph the celebration. (Talk about a pinch-me moment!)
Wedding in Aruba made perfect sense for these two. They're laid back, fun and legitimately have smiles on their faces all the time. I even remember Kristen saying, "I love to smile," while she was getting ready on her wedding morning. :) All that and they got engaged in Aruba!
That happy island got a whole lot happier when Kristen and Dan said, "I do." I've never documented a more joyful wedding, and it will go down as one of the highlights of my photography career. Thanks a million for having us, Kristen and Dan!
