So how about I start blogging this past summer’s weddings??!! I think so!

Let’s start with Sam and Barbie beautiful July wedding!

First off, you know how it was super hot here this summer? Like even the coast had record breaking heat? Well, this particular Friday happened to be the coldest day in weeks. It was refreshing and being able to snuggle a little extra with out the sweat starting to drip was nice for a change!

Sam and Barbie, both lovers of the outdoors created a perfect simplistic wedding celebrating their two loves – ocean and forest. Held at Kitsap State Park, they reserved all the cabins and a few tent sites at the park and many of the guests made a weekend of it. Their decor and style was simple and relaxed and you just know that everyone had a good time.  Congrats you two!!

At the park, right were the ocean meets the evergreens, they held their ceremony and reception. It was beautiful! Their decor theme was surrounded around greenery – ferns in particular. And with a pop of color in the gorgeous center pieces, everything came together nicely.

As wedding favors, Sam and Barbie took the time to paint and bake handled mason jars for each of their guests. (I still have mine!) I thought it was a great idea!

They mingled with their guests before the wedding started, had some snacks and drinks and then walked hand in hand down the isle to their friend who had the privilege of marrying them. So sweet!

The joy I saw on their faces when they walked out of the ceremony when no one was looking (I snuck in!) was so precious and I think these two photos are some of my favorite. Oh the love!

Baby Tara!

This lovely mama and her baby bump stepped in front of my camera just in time! I actually delivered their session to them at the hospital when I went to see them and meet their brand new daughter. They are so in love their little girl!

I’m already enjoying all our playdates/mom dates and I know the girls will love them even more as they get older and can do more and move more 🙂

2015 – A blessed Year

Happy New Years friends!

I am overwhelmed with gratitude. This past year was above and beyond what I expected, both for my business and family. I’m so thankful for all of you who believed in me and let me capture you and your families through my lens. Please know I’m not just saying this. God’s love and care for us (even practically) has been shown through you. I won’t go into details, but you are all answered prayers and simply put, a blessing to us.

Here are some of my favorites from this past year’s sessions (not all sessions have been blogged yet, sorry!)

Baby Nathanael is here!

As it turns out, I’m getting to blog my maternity sessions after the little bundles of joy have already arrived! (sorry!) But now you can see the belly and the baby at the same time, so its all good right?!

Our dear friends welcomed their firstborn late this past summer and they are just smitten with him! We are enjoying our times together and my daughter and Nathanael are becoming fast friends! Rowen can’t seem to take her hands off of  him when he’s around! {Particularly his eyes} !

Here are his photos {before and after birth!}
