Joe and Ann are Engaged!

As soon as I walked up and saw Ann's bright smile, I knew that hers and Joe's engagement session was going to be a good one... and these two did not disappoint! I am already excited for their March 2012 wedding, which will apparently be "mid-west themed with a southern flair"... does that sound fun or what?

See? Told you they are fun :)

Christy And Nathan Are Having A Baby!

I guess it is probaby due to the fact that I just had a baby of my own, but I have really been enjoying working with couples who are also expecting or have just had babies.. and Christy and Nathan were no exception to that. They are expecting their first baby, a girl, in just a few weeks. So I met them at their home to document this special time. I can't wait to meet baby soon!

Beautiful belly :)
Big sister Molly :)

I think this one is my favorite!

Congratulations you two! I can't wait to see you again soon!

Congratulations Brad and Jennifer!

Last month was definitely crazy! Just two weeks after I had Joshua, I shot Mark and Janel's wedding.. and the next morning I got up, drove 2 1/2 hours to my sister's house in Jacksonville to drop off the baby, and then drove another hour up to Amelia Island for Brad and Jennifer's wedding. Crazy? Yes. Worth it? Oh my word - absolutely.

I loved every second of their wedding! Jennifer did an amazing job of planning everything. Everything was simple, and yet every detail was thought out. It was such a beautiful day, and I enjoyed getting to shoot in a different location - Amelia Island is such an amazing place.

Ceremony: St. Michaels Catholic Church
Reception: Ribault Club
Flowers: Island Flower and Garden
Cake: Bliss Cupcakery
Catering: Mai Oui Gourmet

Beautiful bride, beautiful Church :)

Can you guess where they went to school?

It was a perfect evening for an outdoor reception.

You'll be seeing these two on here soon! This is Jennifer's sister Heather and her fiance Whitaker, and I will be shooting their wedding next month!

And here's the slideshow...

Happy Birthday To Me! :)

Wow - the big 3-0... what a strange feeling! Strange because I still feel like I am 18.. so I'm trying to wrap my mind around this whole middle-aged thing. But, if the 30's are half as good as the 20's were, then I'm in good shape! After all, in my 20's I graduated from college, got married, had 3 kids, and started my own business - so I am looking forward to what lies ahead.
I know that I have been WAY behind in blogging lately. Yes, I have been updating with the recent sessions and weddings I have shot (though a little slower than usual) but I know I haven't been posting anything else.. as you may know, about 6 weeks ago I gave birth to my 3rd baby, Joshua William. He is (of course) a beautiful little guy, and I am enjoying every second.

However, between keeping up with shooting and editing (in the first 5 weeks of his life I shot 4 weddings and at least 3 portait sessions!) not to mention 3 kids... Let's just say it's been a little busy! But I have to say - never has life been so sweet.

Well, baby's fussing, so I am going to have to cut this short... but the main reason that I wanted to do this post was to announce my first ever sale! I figured that everyone loves a birthday, so go ahead- pretend it's yours! Today only, if you enter "happybirthday" as a coupon code for your gallery, you will receive 30% off of any prints you order. If your gallery has expired, shoot me an email and I'll get it right back up for you.
And stay tuned to the blog... I have a ton in store!
