Winston is Turning ONE!

Last week was full of rainy cold weather but I managed to dodge the weather for a fun first birthday session with Winston.  His sweet momma chose a “Where the Wild Things Are” theme and it was perfectly done.  Rachale ordered him a Max Outfit for some photos, his dad built a raft, and then a different crown for his cake smash.  We chose an outdoor setting at the riverfront to match the theme and I think it was the perfect spot.

Winston and his brother Remington first came to me a few months ago for an Easter session and these boys are just so sweet with one another and are always all smiles for photos and this day was just like that.  Winston watching his brother run around and play and then Remi would run over to give him a quick hug or make a funny face behind my camera to get his little brother to chuckle.

Happy First Birthday Winston!!!

Below are some of my favorites from his session, to view the full gallery please follow this link Winston is ONE

Mr & Mrs Lavender

Last month I had the privilege of capturing the memories of the beautiful wedding joining Jake & Sam as husband and wife.  They were married by the grooms great uncle in his church surrounded by their closest family and friends.  Carson & Jonah were pulled down the aisle by the groom’s sister Sarah in a wagon wrapped in ribbon.  When Samantha was escorted down the aisle by her father she was shedding tears of joy and happiness & Jake was smiling from ear to ear.  Their sweet little boy Carson sat so patiently on his aunts lap watching his mommy and daddy be joined in marriage.

Sam wore the prettiest lace covered gown with jeweled belt and shoes that were to die for!!!  I mean my feet bled looking at them but they where amazing!!!  She carried a beautiful bouquet of lavender roses and lilies.  Jake wore a suit of his own with a tie that matched Sam’s flowers.   Carson was dressed so cute with little suspenders and converse shoes!

After grabbing some formal family portraits at the church we headed to The Riverside Golf Club in Mason for the reception that was full of bouquet tosses, smiles, hugs, & delicious cake.

The wedding went perfect and flowed so smooth thanks to the awesome timeline made by Jake’s sister Sarah.  Seriously, best coordinator ever!   Most importantly, they are now Mr & Mrs Lavender!!

Thinking About Life & Oliver’s 1st Birthday

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing my cousin Oliver’s 1st Birthday photos.  I have sat down to write this blog many times and each time I wanted to give Jami (his momma) a shout out but told myself “this Oliver’s post keep sappy families to yourself.”  Well I am ignoring that crazy thought, more on his session shortly.

I once heard the saying that your cousin is your 1st friend you’ll have. I never came to understand that phrase until adulthood.  Jami and I are 5 years apart, total opposites in so many ways, yet so alike in others.  When we were small we used to spend every Sunday at our Papaw and Mamaw’s house for Sunday dinner and playing outside, spend nights at each others houses, we went to Disney together once and a few trips to the beach.  Then tragedy struck our family and took loved ones away and with that took away our Sunday dinner’s & playing in mamaw’s giant yard.  We grew, I don’t want to say grew apart because that sounds harsh, our interests just seemed so opposite and the 5 yr age difference seemed to be obvious for a few years.  Adulthood came upon us, Marriage’s & Babies.  Jami became a momma to her sweet boy. Oliver has brought my bond with his momma back to light for me and makes me think of those childhood memories more often.  I am so thankful for those memories she and I share from our younger years and no one can take those memories away.

I can’t believe that Oliver is ONE!!!!  It seems like yesterday I was driving back and forth from the hospital to my house to take care of my kids and yet not miss his delivery!  Click the colored link to see the photos from his hospital session, Oliver’s Arrival & from his Newborn Session here  Oliver’s Newborn

Last week Jami brought Oliver up for some photos to remember his first birthday.  He wasn’t feeling very good and was not interested in his cake at all.  He gets his dislike of cake from his daddy.  I mean who doesn’t like cake!?!

Miss Bree is ONE!!!

Bree’s Momma April contacted me for a 1st Birthday Cake Smash after being referred to me by another client.  We were able to get it scheduled on her actual One Year Birthday!!  How sweet was that?!?!

Some littles come to their cake smash session and devour the cake & some want nothing to do with it.  Bree was just a little in to her adorable little cake.  April picked up the best little cake from the bakery in Spencer for only $4!!!  It was classically decorated and just right.

These were Bree’s 1st professional photos and she was stingy with her smiles but I was able to capture a couple hints of smiles.

Here are a few of my favorites…
