Three Years of Wonderful

Andrew is my rock, my inspiration, the most fantastic father and my best friend. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect husband and I am so thankful that we found each other six years ago in Morocco. Today is our third wedding anniversary, and I am filled with more love and appreciation for Andrew than I ever have been. Words cannot express how I feel about this man, but I can say that he has brought more romance, laughter, family and love into my life than I ever thought a person could have, and for these reasons I feel like the luckiest woman alive. Our wedding day was magical. The wedding was beautiful and we were surrounded by friends and family who traveled from all over the country to be with us and to celebrate the beginning of our life together. Since I'm a photographer and I absolutely adore weddings, today wouldn't be an anniversary without taking a trip down memory lane and looking through our wedding photos. Here are a few of my favorites from that special day: Andrew's sister, my Matron of Honor, was 8-months+ pregnant with our sweet niece Samantha. This was a spontaneous photo that we decided...

Emma-Kate’s First Birthday

We celebrated Emma-Kate's first birthday this weekend. What a wonderful day we had celebrating with family and friends! Emma-Kate's birthday theme was cupcakes, and I had a blast planning and putting together all of the details. Our good friend Jason was kind enough to take photos during the party so that I could focus on the birthday girl, one of my wonderful friends made the beautiful and delicious cupcakes and cupcake-cake, and my awesome family helped me get everything set-up for the festivities. Here are some of my favorite photos from Emma's one-year portraits and the party: ...

Emma-Kate is 11 Months!

My, my how time flies. It completely baffles me that EK turns ONE in a month! My little peanut has turned into a big girl who eats string cheese, drinks out of a sippy-cup, toddles about the house on her own and is babbling up a storm. I really had no idea how quickly she would grow from a beautiful baby into an amazing little person with boundless energy and insatiable curiosity. Here's to one more month of babyhood before she is officially a toddler! Life seems to be a bit of a blur these days, but there's always a piece of clarity in the day when Emma sits still long enough to give me some good eye contact that makes my heart swell Emma-Kate loves to 'read!' Here are some shots of Emma-Kate with her super awesome cousin, Samantha. ...

A Pretty Blue Box

Recently, I received a package in the mail I hadn't expected. I was very curious as to what its contents were, so I quickly grabbed a pair of scissors and popped it open. To my surprise, one of a woman's favorite finds was inside...

Happy Father’s Day!

I am so lucky to have so many wonderful men in my life. My Dad has always been an amazing father, and now Emma-Kate is fortunate to have him as her Papaw, and I'm fortunate to get to see how much my little girl loves him. I'm also blessed to have the most amazing husband and father to Emma-Kate. Andrew has exceeded any expectation that I could have had for him as a Dad, and am so thankful for all of  the wonderful and amazing things he does for our little girl and our family. To my wonderful husband and to my Dad, Happy Fathers Day! ...

Pensacola Beach Fun!

My family and I have been vacationing in Pensacola beach since I was 2 years old. About 4 years ago, we introduced Andrew to our favorite beach and this year we were lucky enough to share the surf, sand and sun with Emma-Kate. It was a pretty special vacation for me and my parents because we've rented the same house year after year after year, so it was a very cool experience getting to create some memories with Emma-Kate that I also had during my childhood. We were also blessed by the oil/ocean gods and so far the beach has been relatively untouched by the BP oil spill. Here are some shots from our beach vacation: Lola is quite the card and dice shark. I love beach storms. They're so dramatic, but also short-lived - which means that you get to enjoy the sound of rain on the roof and play in the sand all in the same day! ...

Happy Mother’s Day!

Although I celebrated my 'first' Mother's Day last year with a big pregnant belly, this is my first actual Mother's Day with Emma-Kate. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful little person as my daughter. Every day she amazes me and every day being a mother makes me appreciate my own mom even more. A mom's work never ends and a mom's love is the most special and true  - no matter what the circumstance. Thank you to my mom, Paula, for the many wonderful lessons and memories  you've given me over the years. Here's a very special slide-show of family photos to honor my mom, grandmothers and great-grandmother. I love you all dearly. ...
