When two gorgeous, talented dear friends ask if you can photograph them for a new music group they’ve started, you jump at the chance. Not only because it’s fun to catch up and take photos of friends from what seems like a past life now, but because with this particular session, we got a private concert out of the deal. :)

Whether these two are singing in church, in the Disney parks, or even Dickens carolers, they do everything with such passion and joy that you feel like every song you’re witnessing is the best song they’ve ever sang. They’re awesome, and you should go “like” Plus 1 on Facebook!

You can see some past sessions we’ve done with this family here and hereThanks for asking us for this session, y’all- We can’t wait for the next one! :)

I think this is the last of my really, really old ones- Well, at least the ones that took place over a year ago. ;)

You may remember Ashley and Brian’s session with their ridiculously adorable daughter, Ariella. We photographed their family around the Boardwalk last Christmas, and meeting the three of them, it was obvious we were in for a great wedding day! Ashley started her morning at the Boardwalk Inn, getting her hair and make-up done by rockstar stylist Kalie of About Face. We shot Kalie’s wedding yeeeeeears ago, and she’s one of the best hair and make-up talents in town. Book her!!

I love this one of Ashley’s and Ariella’s shoes and the sparkle they made on the wall. :)

Once upon a time, Adriana and Stephen fell in love and got married, and we had front-row seats for both!

Now they are the proud parents of this little bean, Aaron! <3

He is so perfect and squishy and now like a year older than he was in this photo because of my often lackadaisical approach to blogging. ;)

Another one from the archives: Susie and Adam’s Disney wedding. :) These guys came to us from across the pond and got married in the Wedding Pavilion, enjoyed lunch with their guests afterward in The Living Seas Salon, and that evening, dessert and dancing in the Grand Floridian Convention Center. They are tons and tons and tons of fun, and their wedding day absolutely flew by. Susie and Adam, thank you for having us!! <3

Happy Friday!! I can’t believe we’re in mid-August, which is practically September, which means Halloween is just around the corner and then we can decorate for the holidays! Our fall wedding and travel schedule is so crazy, so I’m truly enjoying the calm before the wedding storm. We’ve been taking extra long walks with Huck, enjoying sunsets on our back patio, and I’ve even been getting a jump on our Christmas gifts. I sew about 1/2 of the gifts we give every year, so if I don’t start now, I’ll never get everything done in time! Sometimes I feel like my entire year is preparing for the holidays, and I’m perfectly fine with that. ;) How have your summers been?!

While we don’t have any recent sessions to share this month, I thought it’d be a great time to do some “spring cleaning” (summer cleaning?) and share some posts that kinda got lost between the cracks. The ones that have been collecting dust at the bottom of my WordPress drafts… Eek!

Here’s a sweet family session we did with past Root couple, Jenn and Alan, and their beautiful Julianna. <3
