All Smiles

Capturing this family this year found me with sore cheeks in the middle of it from smiling so big. They certainly know how to have a good time, especially the patriarch & matriarch of the family. Near the end of the shoot they surprised the kids with a spontaneous snowball fight, I think the adults had just as much fun though ;) For being one of the biggest group photos of the season, we just rolled through the shoot -- it was great. 
I'm so thankful to get to work with people in the middle of capturing joy! 


Mr. & Mrs. McG

I am so blessed and thankful to get to sneak into moments held sacred. Hide behind the lens while miracles and memories are taking place. Thursday was one of those days. Two souls, patiently waiting to become intertwined, said "I do" to walking this road of life together. It was a beautiful ceremony, one that honored God and embraced those around them. 
Congratulations on your new journey together!

A Perfect (November) Storm

This beautiful family and I decided to adventure out into the rainy Sunday to try and capture some fall shots. As if perfectly times, just as the shoot was approaching the skies cleared just enough for some gorgeous lighting. I so enjoyed photographing in the lovely autumn, treasure hunting and capturing sweet smiles.

Books About: Thanksgiving!

As we are less than a week away from Thanksgiving, I thought I would post a couple of library finds we picked up. The first is a book about a "non-traditional" Thanksgiving meal, celebrating a variety of cultures. The second, touches on a well loved holiday event -- The Macy's Parade!
