the kommer girls reside in new mexico, but while visiting their momma’s hometown of punxsutawney, they wanted to hang out with me for a quick little photo shoot at grandma’s house! these 2 were absolutely doll faces! love love love their big blue eyes! you would never know it….but as i began to shoot the skies turned dark, sprinkles began to fall….and a heavy downpour started just as i was finishing up their photos! we made it just in time!
the day before their 5 year wedding anniversary, i met up with the jewell family. now a family of 4 (5 including mya!) amber and david have 2 adorable children and a shoot on their property was a must to celebrate their milestone! so much fun to see this family grow over the years!
please take a peak into my secret garden! i had such a wonderful time scheming up this shoot and working with such a gracious home owner to let me into their own garden! my kiddos were absolutely wonderful and i’m so happy with how things went this year, that this just might be a repeat for next year! thank you everyone for coming out in our pretty unpredictable weather last week!
when the wind just takes the brides veil and it blows itself over the groom’s head, sometimes you just have to go with it!
planning an outdoor wedding always has risks. sometimes weather is perfect, sometimes it isn’t, but having the attitude that anna & bryan did, was perfect…..for their not so ideal outdoor wedding weather! luckily they had plan b for the reception, but they were bound and determined to have the ceremony outside, and the skies cleared and calmed for that special moment, thank goodness! before and after the ceremony, we had some serious rain, wind and cold weather conditions, that no one was expecting for may! but with great spirits and true love we all got through it and enjoyed the time!
i have done many outdoor weddings, and a handful of true “back yard” weddings. it’s defiantly something special to walk out of the home you grew up in, hand in hand with your father who was dressed in his U.S. Marine Evening Dress Uniform, onto your back yard garden surrounded by your closest family and friends. this is what anna got to experience! how special! congratulations mr & mrs seitz!!
anna looked so so very beautiful!!bryan looked so handsome!child hood home. father in marine evening dress uniform. nephew carrying the train. all walking into your backyard to marry the love of her life! swoon.
kari & seth are the perfect mix of glam and rock and roll! they are both absolute sweethearts and i adore the two of them and all the love that surrounds love. here is their day!the dress! one of the prettiest i have ever seen! kari picked out everything perfectly!i wondered if this would happen……kari is a hair stylist at studio fifty five, and of course got her hair done there, along with the all the other girls, sisters, moms, etc……she just couldn’t resist helping out. kari to the rescue!she did take time to relax, and let herself get a little pampered!
head to toe she was just simply stunning!i love kari’s old hollywood glam look!
seth is black tie rocker chic! handsome as ever!someone is trying to hold it together as he sees his bride walk down the aisle.the views up the on hill outside of the church were wonderful! the wind was an added bonus!i love, love, love flowering trees, what a perfect time of year!always daddy’s little girl!congrats mr & mrs cooper!!! xoxo
meet carson rose, not just any newborn client of mine. i am proud to say that this is MY very own niece! yes, i am biased. i know this. but she is the best baby! she is beautiful, sweet, lovable, calm, content, most wonderful baby who i love so so so very much!!! my sister and brother in law welcomed this sweet child into the world (very fast) on sunday april 24th, 2016 at 6:37pm, she was 20 inches long, 7 pounds 6 ounces of pure perfection. love you carson rose!
i love shooting former clients, it doesn’t seem like 5 years ago in 2011 when i photographed anna’s senior photos, but here we are 5 years later, she is about to graduate college and get married next month!!! what an exciting time for her and bryan! they met on the tennis court years ago where a lesson turned into a “love match”, haha. 😉
anna’s parents property’s newest addition: giant chess board!where their love blossomed!
