first comes love, then comes marriage...

hello hello!

it's late, but i am WIRED, just super excited for a fun weekend ahead... plus i am long overdue to share a little somethin' somethin'.

in mid-december i was fortunate enough to shoot a wedding with this gentleman, bryan rupp.

he just posted a blog from that wedding, and i (as always!) was blown away by his talent. shoot. check out the post here.

let me quickly tell you about something fun and exciting i got to be a part of last week. this past spring, i had the privilege of shooting the wedding of nick and nicole, and the day was fabulous.

guess what- these two are expecting their first baby! here are a few of the "sneak peek" shots i sent nicole's way- isn't she a stunning pregnant woman? just gorgeous! it really is a blast when i can not only be involved in people's lives once, but when they continue asking me to capture their lives and families. such an amazing thing to build relationships with clients and to see their families change and grow!

i am super excited to meet the little one this spring- nick and nicole, congratulations!

(it's personal) vol. 6

hello, hello-

i hope the start of 2011 finds you filled to the brim with anticipation. i am so glad to be here. :) it's gonna be a good 52 weeks, i can feel it deep down in my soul.

what to know how i celebrated 1/1/11? let me tell you- i was with the fam. my immediate family contains:
- mom
- dad
- cair (sister)
- jordan (bro-in-law)
- leah (cair's best friend of 15+ years and my pseudo-sister)
- joe (bro-in-law, via leah)

there are two things that are usually present when we all get together. 1) food and 2) laughter. there were times over baked french toast, orange juice, and two pounds of bacon that i was laughing so hard tears were streaming down my face. my family can drive me up the wall, but i love them with my whole heart. my siblings bring me so much joy and i can't begin to imagine life without them.

so, leah and joe. they are expecting their first baby this spring, and i am SO excited to meet this tiny little man! we shot a few photos after breakfast, and i definitely think pregnancy suits my lucy goose! check out this beautiful lady.

new people, new starts, new possibilities. i can not wait- there is so much to be thankful for. happy new year!
