I have an unknown amount of unblogged photo shoots that I’d love to get out on the world wide web here, so here’s one from a couple months back. Sweet Charlotte entered this world in May, and we took some photos to document this momentous occasion. Charlotte’s big sis, Madeline, was such a gem during our shoot. Here are some of my favorites.The teeny-tiny pigtails here just kill me. So cute!I love this family portrait!After the outdoor portraits, we moved inside to Charlotte’s perfect little nursery.People often ask me about props for newborn sessions, and I always say I love to use whatever adorable things you probably already have in your home, especially the nursery.Charlotte was a pretty stellar poser for me. :)See what I mean? Look at these poses!It seemed like I hadn’t done a lot of newborn sessions in awhile, and now I’ve done several in the last few months. I’ve also had a couple of maternity sessions, and it had been too long since I’d done any of those. I love ’em! Anyway, I’ve really enjoyed photographing the sweet babies and mommies-to-be!
Well, we have come to the final post from Matt & Kadie’s wedding. Sure, I could’ve included these with the reception pix, but the exit was just so cute that I wanted to give it it’s own post. I always love a good sparkler exit. I also enjoy it when an exit involves an outfit change! :)They’re just so happy! I love it.That look between Kadie and her mom. So sweet.Matt & Kadie~
What a joy it was to celebrate with you and document your love! :) Thanks so much for trusting me. You guys are the coolest.I’ll be back next week with a million and one portrait sessions! Plus some chatting about life, because I need to do more of that on here. :)
Happy weekend, friends!
Like everything else about their wedding day, Matt & Kadie‘s reception was awesome. And their wedding reception totally proved wrong an opinion I’d had about weddings before this. See, here in Oklahoma, I shoot weddings pretty often that don’t serve any alcohol. Might be unusual elsewhere, but here in the Bible belt, it’s pretty common. And I’ve always said that the only way to have lots of fun dancing happen at your wedding is to have alcohol available to your guests. Well, Matt & Kadie had no alcohol, and they and their guests danced the night away! So, I was wrong. Apparently, you just need to be a really fun couple whose friends and family love to dance! :)Proof that LifeChurch receptions can be pretty. Aka: proof that string lights really are magical and can transform any space! ;)Matt’s grandparents owned the dance floor!The father-daughter dance morphed into a father-and-mother dance……And then into a father-in-law-and-son-in-law / mother-daughter dance. It was great! :)Grandparents dancing together during the anniversary dance always melts my heart.So much fun!
Just one more post to go, coming up later today…
Matt & Kadie‘s ceremony was beautiful, just like the two of them. Here are some of my favorite photos from it.The way they looked at each other…Dip that girl, Matt! :)Oh yes.Haha! Loved this.When we were walking out to take their portraits, Matt got Kadie a cup of water and I said something like, “Oh, look at you being a sweet husband.” And Matt was all, “HUSBAND! Yeahhh! I’m your husband, Kadie!” So cute. :)We’re down to just a couple of posts from this fab wedding. Stay tuned…
I mean, these nephews at Matt & Kadie’s wedding were just too cute not to share. :) Kadie’s nephew was the adorable ring bearer, and Matt’s nephew was a super stud poser during the family pix, as you can see in the photo above. I have three nephews myself, so I love seeing the bonds being formed here. So sweet!His face when he looked at his aunt in her wedding dress! #meltmyheartOh man. Those freckles and eyelashes!Coming up next, the ceremony photos…
