It’s our favorite auburn-haired mom’s birthday 🎉 She doesn’t like too much attention, makes a legendary apple pie and is always smiling this big even when we tell her we let her children stay up way too late and gave them whatever they wanted to eat. We have no idea why she lets us come over anymore 🤷🏼♀️ 😍at all the squeezing/hugging arms in this photo that accurately represent everyones personality and loving-ness 😂😭
Today I get to go celebrate a life of a husband and father of two daughters. For a short amount of time he had ALS but there is good is news because today he no longer weighed down by a broken body. I’m sad for the amazing people that are his family but oh man, couldn’t be happier for him
This couple’s wedding day is on the blog! This first look was in the church foyer that doubled as a back up portrait location in case of rain, pretty much died of happiness over how lucky I was to capture beautiful people at beautiful but meaningful places 😭
In general, I tend to be fairly in your face as photographer. I love portraits, seeing eyes light up when they see the ones they love, etc. But I’m working on backing up, giving space, and showing more of the story. This weekend was perfect for it.
I’ve pretty much narrowed down my style. I know a pair of pants are a winner if Tyler says, “Are you sure those aren’t PJs?” #comfortfirst
We had umbrellas, hard core bug repellers, and change of clothes to prepare for all the warnings but we didn’t need any of it. The whole day was perfect and as we drove away Tyler said, “Lizzie and Joel just really like each other and it’s obvious.” They were excited, friends and family were excited, and I’m excited to be reliving it this morning 😍
