photo shoots ~ sam & rach & baby haze!!

SRm07About a million years ago {not really}, I shot Sam & Rachel’s wedding.  I have actually known Sam since elementary school days, and his older brother Jake is one of my lifelong best friends. :) {Shout out to Jake for being one of the greatest friends a girl could ask for! :)}  Anyway, in the years since I shot Sam’s wedding, he has accomplished some pretty cool things…. such as wrestling in the Olympics in London {!!!!} and having an adorable baby boy! :)  We took these photos right before that second big life milestone, and if you’ll keep scrolling through this post, you can see the newborn photos we did after little Joshua was born!  {That’s your warning for lots of pix in this post. :)}

JH071Sam & Rach are some of the most laid-back, fun people you’ll ever meet.  For example, when we were moving from one room to another for pix, I turned around to see that they’d laid Joshua down by one of their sweet doggies.  haha!  Of course I had to snap a pic! :)

You guys rock!!  You’re already some of the best parents I have ever known, and you’re just getting started on this journey.  :)  I love you guys so much!  Thank you for letting me be your photographer for these precious moments.
