This adorable little lumber jack is my precious four-year-old son Liam. Every year on my children’s half birthdays I like to have a stylized session with them.
It is so nice when your children get a little older when it comes to photographing them. I remember last year when we had a tepee session he only game me ten minutes before he was done. This year he was all into it. He was even suggesting some of his own poses and gave me the cutest smiles!
After photographing clients during the week it is a challenge for me to feel motivated to photograph my own children. But I am always so thankful after I do. Especially when they are cute as this! (Sorry, I know I’m biased.)
I had the wonderful privilege of photographing Elizabeth and Mark Hilton’s wedding. They were married on September 24th at Jackson Friends Church. But I started my day at Mark’s house photographing the guys. They were running a little behind that day, as typical weddings go. Then, we headed to the church. It was so sweet to see how much love was showered on Elizabeth from her family as she was preparing for the wedding and throughout the day. Family seemed to be such a huge part of their lives. It was especially fun to see family members from Armenia who came to attend the wedding. Some hadn’t been here in twenty years! The wedding went smoothly except for the adorably dramatic show from the ring bear. Their reception was at The Walsh Barrett Center. The campus was gorgeous and provided so much photographic opportunity. And then it was off to party! And this family sure can party! Literately everyone was on the dance floor. Including one relative in her 90’s having the time of her life. It was the cutest thing. And the reception really picked up when Elizabeth’s father came out and played with his Armenian band. I was having so much fun I was sad to leave! Mark and Elizabeth have such a wonderful life ahead of them. You can see how much love they share. I wish them the very best! And I want to thank them once again for choosing me to be a part of their big day!
