Happy New Year, friends!!!! I know I probably shouldn’t be saying that this late in the month, but the Christmas tree behind me says otherwise! ;)
The last few weeks of 2014 were a bit challenging for us to say the least- Between a bout of food poisoning, a lovely plumbing backup in our apartment bathroom, learning that I’m allergic to Christmas trees, and a sinus infection we just can’t defeat, I was anxious for 2015 to get here already. Things are already looking up for us this year- Only one more month until our new home is finished and we’re looking forward to some visits from friends and family in the coming weeks. I hope your new year is looking up, too! :)
Dayna and Peter were one of our first sessions of 2015! These adorable faces come from Vancouver, and even though our first session was rained out, we were able to make some pretty photos together a few days later!
Dayna, you’re beautiful! <3
Dayna and Peter, thank you for picking us! Happy wedding planning, and we hope to see you again! :)
This just can’t be right.
10 years and 10 months ago, I met the sweetest four-year-olds you ever did see, and a few years later, I got married and they became my siblings forever. I will always remember their little personalities- Natalia smart and shy, Branden running around and roaring like a dinosaur, and Katarina, my mini-me, playing “office” with her dad’s old work papers under a table while her siblings splash in the pool. I tried digging up some old photos, but here’s one of me and six-year-old Kat, and I believe this is the night I taught her how to make a fishy face. <3
It’s hard to believe that two Christmases ago, we took this photo and I thought they looked so old then…
… And last month, we showed up and they looked like this!!!
Natalia, Katarina, and Branden, happy 15th birthday!!! We are so proud of the amazing people you’ve become and love you all too, too much. Look out, Florida drivers!!
If you’ve been following along with the blog for a while, you might remember Brittany, Sean, and Keelan from their last session with us. You know, the one that ended up looking like this: (click the photo below for more from their family paint photo session!)
Welllll, this is them now, and Keelan is not only going to school now, but he’s a big brother!
Brittany is once again the sweetest momma with her little boys, and this is Finley…
… Who completely, utterly stole my heart! <3
We met this sweet family for photos around Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, and I love that practically half of the session took place on a boat dock. We couldn’t get enough of that perfect sunlight!
Sean, this one’s my faaaaavorite! :)
Nate’s favorite! :)
That haaaaaaair! <3
Brittany, Sean, Keelan, and Finley, thanks for playing with us for a while!! We love y’all! :)
Surely you all remember these faces. I can’t believe we just had our third family session with Maevy and Carter!
This time, we did their session at Vanderbilt Campus in Nashville. :)
They also brought along some family members! <3
Carter was not feeling it for photo day. :(
Of course, he breaks out the grins the second we wrap up! We’ll get ya next time, Carter!
We are in the home stretch of our busiest time of the year!
While I try my best to get these photos finished by holiday card time, I’m so thankful for the patience of our lovely subjects as they wait for their teaser photos! Lindsey has waited the longest, so without further ado, here’s a peek into her sweet family session- Truly a favorite of the year for us. :)
