Family Time

I love getting to do family sessions when these baby planners turn one and this one was extra special because not only was the little one on our baby plan but so was the big sister. She is so grown up now and quite the cutie like her little brother. He was not as happy to be outside on a chilly morning, but it didn’t stop his sister one bit. This has to be one of the most genuine and nicest families around and I have really enjoyed photographing them through the years. Thank you all for letting me capture your life these past few years:)

Yes…the title is in all caps because this family is so much fun! The kids have grown up so much since the last time I photographed them and I just love the laid back vibe they have. I can’t image how fun it must be to grow up in this family and their mom is so funny…I want her to be my neighbor (hint, hint S). Anyway, on to the pictures that you want to see….

 

Cheryl + Jim: The Wedding

Cheryl and Jim got married on a beautiful December day with weather that was fall-like and just perfect. Everyone was in such a happy and excited mood and it was fun to see the families and friends smiling all day and happy for this wonderful couple. They started off the wedding in the chapel at First Baptist and I am sure that I have never seen that chapel that packed with people before. After the wedding and some additional pictures, we headed to the reception for a gorgeous Christmas themed reception. I am so happy that these two found happiness together and I wish them a wonderful future together:)

Samantha + Lee – The Wedding

I have know Samantha for a few years now as I have taken family pictures with her in it and then a few years later I got to take her senior pictures and so I was shocked/excited when her mom let me know that she was getting married. It seems like not that long ago that she and her sister were posing dowtown or when I did her senior pictures in her princess-like ball gown in a field (still some of my favorite ones ever) but I know it really was…I’m in denial, LOL! Samantha has grown up to not only be a beautiful young lady, but she is even sweeter and kinder than I remembered and she loves the Lord and you can just see him in her which is super cool to witness. I met her husband Lee when they came into the studio for a consult and I loved the little looks they gave each other and the way they just beamed smiles. Sweet is a perfect way to describe these two. Anyway, these two got married on a somewhat spring-like winter day at Lee’s grandparent’s church. This church has a special meaning to them and they decorated the spaces with Christmas touches everywhere. I loved that the wedding was simple and real and just wonderful:)Thanks y’all for letting me capture this special day!

I Love Surprises

I love surprises. I love, love, love surprise gifts…especially the kind you have no idea someone is giving you. This little guy’s daddy decided to surprise his mommy with a portrait of their adorable two year old son. And…he bought new clothes and planned this whole shoot. I was impressed. Gifts with so much thought and planning are always the best kind. And…this little guy? How could you not love anything with his adorable little face on it?

Visiting Thomasville Family

This family lives many states away but they were back in town for an early Thanksgiving get together. We took these pictures ages ago but I promised to hold off on sharing them until after Christmas so that I wouldn’t ruin any Christmas surprises. I hope everyone loved these updated portraits!
