L Family Maternity Session

Anyone who truly knows me would know that when my friends and family are happy, I am truly happy.  In some cases, I feel like I am happier more than they are at the time of their happiness. The sheer joy that I feel for someone else’s happiness brings me to tears at times.  I know, I know I am using the word “happiness” a lot!  Well, I am grateful for wonderful friends and growing families.  It’s amazing to be a part of someone’s life and share in such momentous and celebratory occasions.

Many blessings to this beautiful family for this well deserved LOVE that continues to grow in their life.

Family Photos at Lockridge Park

A trip out to Pennsylvania to meet up with this beautiful family.  Celebrating a little boy’s 2nd birthday and wonderful wedding anniversary this week, there’s just so much excitement how can it all be contained?!  WE all got through this hot day, hopefully they were able to enjoy some well deserved water ice afterwards.  Happy Birthday! and Happy Anniversary!

Stugis Family Photo Session

I was so happy to see this family as I’ve watched Chloe grow up and now Max is getting big so quick also.  Where does the time go?!
We had a very cold morning, but we managed to snap a few shots in hopes to finish up and warm up with some hot chocolate afterwards.  I absolutely love the kids’ facial expressions.

Marcantonio Family Photo Session

 

Again, another familiar family and I am so glad they came back around as I love to see how every one has grown along the way.  The kids had fun and I did too.  You can see the love that this family has as it emanates.  It was a huge pleasure to be a part of their evening. I look forward to another time with them again.JR-9561 JR-9574 JR-9583 JR-9586 JR-9588 JR-9617

Strickland Family Photo Session

These two have a beautiful baby girl together and they enjoy every moment with each other, you can sense their appreciation for each other which is a wonderful feeling.  It was a frigid Fall day and we snapped away what we could with a break in between for the little one to get warmed up, but we did get some images of the family together enjoying each other.

Spring Family Photo Session

What a beautiful a day and a beautiful walk in the park with this family.  These two little girls were absolutely adorable.  The oldest just wanted to go around and explore while the littlest clapped her hands throughout.  Each time we’d get the two together for a photo the oldest wanted to just sneak behind baby and peak her way through.  As always, I am thankful for having you allow me to capture moments in your life.

Elyse’s Baptism

I want to thank this family for welcoming me into their home and life for the day to capture the baptism of their daughter, Elyse.   Elyse looked like a little angel with her stunning gown.
May she always be blessed.

Lucas’ 1st Birthday Photo Session

Woohoo!  Someone is turning 1!  It’s always great to be a part of a very special occasion for kids and their parents.  I am so happy that I was able to capture some awesome moments, as well as of Lucas and his parents.  It’s so great to see kids grow and be happy doing simple things as looking and playing with balloons.  It makes me want to be a kid again!  Happy Birthday Lucas!
