This cute bundle of joy came into the world on Christmas day! I did his little newborn pictures which you can go back into the January blogs and see and now was back for his three month session! What a little cutie he’s grown into and MAN HAS HE GROWN! He is all his Daddy and may be a line backer someday I don’t know. But one thing I do know is his Momma is going to have some huge biceps by the end of the year! Enjoy Baby H’s three month photo shoot! LOVE THAT LITTLE MAN!

As any bride would know, planning a wedding is some fun and yet hard stuff! So I’m here to help with yet one more tip. The details of a wedding can sometimes make the wedding! A low budget wedding can be absolutely gorgeous with the right decorations and visa-versa! I have been to several weddings where the decorations absolutely made the wedding! They can be sweet, personalized to you and your husband, or simply beautiful, adding to the elegance and ambiance of your wedding.
To help you gather some ideas about the detail of your wedding I have some pictures!
This wedding was so beautiful and so elegant. I love how the bride chose such classic colors and flowers to give it a light and classic look. And the details such as the coffee bags and starbucks coffee barista after the dinner was a beautiful touch since they met at Starbucks. And the sweetest was the the story board that outlined each memorable date on their dating calendar. Each detail you can tell was chosen carefully. The sun set streaming in through the windows added to the romantic feel of the evening. The bride couldn’t have looked more beautiful or more happy. And the groom as equally handsome. Proud parents and family looking on and adding to the overall happiness of the day couldn’t be overlooked. It was truly a joy to behold and this photographer was thrilled to be there!
Vanessa is just as beautiful inside as out. She is soft spoken and elegant in the way she presents herself. She has a heart of gold which was so evident in the way her friends helped and fawned over her during her session. Mom was there too as proud as a mother should be during such an exciting time. We went all over the gardens. Even though this was taken in March before the grass had even come in we were able to find some great locations so she could still have that beautiful environmental portrait most brides love. And what a dress! I loved how the train laid. No matter what we did it was so flattering. It was a great bridal session and Vanessa did GREAT!!! Enjoy!
This is just a fun little shoot at a local horse ranch. The kids had so much fun and I had so much fun shooting it! There were so many tender moments between the kids and the horses, even a mule. The sweetest being the attachment one girl developed for an old blind horse. She kept going back to see him over and over.

I know Mommy from way back BEFORE she was a Mommy. She was one of the many angels who have come into our lives by way of helping me to watch my children. She was with us when my first was 2 years old and still with us when my second was born. So she knows my babies well. For me it was such a special treasure to hold her baby and see the same loving kind person loving on her child as she did mine. And what a little cutie he was too! I do so love my baby cuddles. Although I still have to share my crack up moment. Keep in mind I have probably shot HUNDREDS of newborn portraits at this point and I have been peed on as well as all the other bodily functions that come with infants. But baby K was the first to give me not one but TWO FULL FOUNTAINS!!! It was hilarious! I swear I think it was a good two feet high! ha ha! Let’s just say if they have any of those gross boy competitions on who can do ‘that’ the farthest, I am betting on Baby K! Hugs and Kisses! And so good to see you Mommy AND Daddy too! ; ) Enjoy!
Are you currently engaged to a military man?! Lucky you! I absolutely love military weddings! They can be so beautiful and the men are always handsome! I have shot a couple military weddings so I’m gonna share some pictures with you!
When your future husband and groomsmen are from the military, instead of wearing boutonnieres they wear their embellishments that they’ve been awarded throughout their service.
When planning the exit of your reception, remember that you can have an archway of swords. I always thought this tradition was so beautiful. Members of the navy and coast guard use swords while members of the Army and Marine Corps have sabers.
The fun part of the wedding will be the cake cutting! Guess what?! YOU CAN USE THE SWORD/SABER!!!!
Just remember to have fun at your wedding. If you are getting married and you want to remember these pictures be sure to pin them! Be sure to add us on Facebook and Google + to see more pictures!
Its become a new fashion trend for country girls to have cute country weddings! This means cowboy boots, white lace, lots of flowers, and of course horses! I have had the pleasure of being the photographer for a couple country weddings and they are by far some of the cutest! SO I’m going to share some inspiration to future country brides!
1) Cowboy Boots!
A cute pair of cowboy boots always looks wonderfully with a beautiful white dress! They also look great with the beautiful bouquet of this young bride! The colors are such a pretty purple and match so well with her gorgeous dress!!!
Doesn’t every woman love LACE! This bride has paired up some beautiful lace with a lovely lilac color. I absolutely love how she decorated the tables with the white lace over the purple table cloth. This bride even had it on her gorgeous wedding dress! Inspirational? Pin it!
The third thing you need to have a classic country wedding is a cute wedding cake top that matches your personality! This wedding had this top!
Already had your wedding but love this idea? Why not have a Celebrate the Dress Portrait!? (By the way, that’s a link!)
