When I found out that Jen was expecting I was SUPER excited because I shot her wedding in 2009.  Actually her sister contacted me to give the maternity and newborn session to her as a gift for the holidays! I was thrilled!  I was very excited about the super cute ideas Jen brought with her to the session. I can't wait to meet little Max!! :D

Party with Paris Mountain!!!

The Paris Mountain Bridal Party was an awesome hit!! :D  I was so thrilled to celebrate my 5th year of shooting weddings with all of my girls!!  Every detail went perfectly, we had a great turnout of my past, present, and future brides!  And after watching the video I can see why people think I'm a total spaz!  My best friend even laughed when I would scream anytime the girls in the room screamed and I said "I don't even know why I'm screaming." She said I just like to scream and now I have an excuse! :D HAHAH! Totally true!!! :D  I'm going to have a ton of photos to post soon, but for now you are just graced with my photo booth pictures! :D

Brookie's Little Piggies!

I tried so hard not to get addicted to pinterest.  But last night I was on for about two hours just pinning everything and found this!!!! I couldn't resist these little piggies!  Brooke sat still for about 30 minutes for me to paint her toes. I couldn't belive it! :D She did such a great job, and she loved showing them off to her big sisters!  :D

E-Session | Atlatna Photographer

I am used to shooting an engagement session at Piedmont Park.  But I'm NOT used to shooting an engagement session at Piedmont Park in below freezing temperatures!!! Yikes! It was SO cold, but you can't tell from Janiel and John's faces. They were tough and so much fun to work with!  One great thing about the cold was the park was nearly empty!  We had the place to ourselves and the sun looked warm and glowy!  Haaha!  Thanks Janiel for hanging in there in the cold and in those serious high heels you wore! :D  I had a wonderful time! :D

Winter Days!

What do you do with a 2 year old on a freezing winter day with no snow...... build a snowman!!!!  We made some homeade clay with glitter in it and made our snowmen together! Brooke played with the clay for about an hour uninterrupted! She loved it... and I have to say... she did a pretty great job with her snowman all on her own! :D

Annie + FOX Theater = Three exciteed little girls!!!!

Since Emily and Hannah were in their school production of Annie, they have been obscessed with the musical! Even Brooke sings almost every song by heart with her sisters!  So when we found out Annie was going to be at the FOX THEATER I got tickets immediately! It was so much fun and it was Brooke's first time at the FOX, so she was super excited! My favorite part of the entire show was looking over at her as she clapped and smiled! At the end she clapped SO hard and yelled, "You did a good job!!!"  I'm so glad I'm able to take my kids to do fun things like going to the theater!! :D
