LOVE THESE FAMLIES!!!
Oh my, where to begin with this AMAZING story! This very handsome husband and father to be has become very dear to my heart! James is my main Crossfit Coach... He came into my life and changed it over four years ago... He has completely changed my fitness regimen and my overall health!
This Crossfit guy has found the love of his life and the two of them are starting a perfect family together... We had planned a maternity photo shoot with Emily not knowing she was going to be proposed to that very evening.... James was very romantic and secretive in his planning, which went exactly as he had planned! If I'm thinking correctly, only one other person knew about his plan.... and what an amazing plan it was for his future wife and that sweet little baby Liam James! Emily didn't suspect a thing, it was a complete surprise and success!!!
The captures tell the complete story of his romantic proposal to his beautiful Emily... What an amazing evening and event it was....
Just plain GORGEOUSNESS!
You are so beautiful, lady! One of my faves!
That's a very happy young woman... This just fills my heart!
Congrats you three!!!
You both were a joy to work with!
~We did a complete studio shoot as well, but you will have to ask James and Emily to see those, they tell another story~
I have recently become a grandmother and I have to say, there's no other feeling like it in the world. I thought having a grandchild was going to be a wonderful feeling but I honestly did not think it was gonna be as grand as it is!
To have the complete honor and opportunity to photograph other grandmothers with their grandchildren is honestly complete bliss for me!
Oh my my!!!
Stepping out of the comfort box, in my opinion, makes us all stronger and more educated in everything we do! I do it in my business life, my personal life and in my worldly life! Now blogging is completely out of my box, but I need and have to do it sometimes for my business! So, I was going through several photo shoots I haven't blogged about and came to this gorgeous shot of this beautiful family I did in the spring. Now, why is this particular shot out of the comfort box?? First of all, it's midday, which is really a "no no" in professional photography lingo. Especially for Masters in photography, and I've studied under plenty of Masters in my day! Most teachers say, find shade! No, not me!!! This family endured midday full sun, heat, and bugs (in a field)! The children weren't the most cooperative children, but I truly love kids! They probably think I'm the crazy photographer lady! Ha!
But anyway, in my professional opinion, this shot is a complete success and wall hanger in all technical terms! The lighting is perfect, the setting is perfect, their expressions are very natural and you can see their eyes, which is MAJOR in professional photography!
Stepping out of the box is always fantastic for me...
What a wedding day it was this past Saturday.... Angela and Sterling are true hopeless romantics for sure! I knew this all along but the ceremony did it for me!
I wish you two all the world has to offer and then some!!!!
Here's a sneak peek of their June 10, 2017 inspiring and beautiful wedding day...
The best is yet to come guys!!! Happy life together FOREVER!!!
This is one of the wonderful reasons I photograph weddings... Of course, my main reason is the passion for my work and the unity of marriage, but to give you another wonderful reason is photographing family! Here is a shot of three generations of fathers and sons!
I absolutely love photographing these families and creating priceless memories for their future generations....
Always remember important family photos when planning your wedding!
