You might remember Brooke, Paul and Elle from their engagement photos (click here if you need a refresher)! 🙂 Their wedding day was just as fun as the engagement shoot…although it was just a TINY bit warmer. 🙂 I met Brooke and Elle while they were getting ready at home, and as you can see from the first few photos…I could not resist taking photos of Brooke’s post-it note wedding organization method.  HA!  To her credit, everything ran super smoothly and I will now recommend more brides copy her methods!  Brooke and Paul’s wedding ceremony outdoors at the Baker Wetlands was simply and beautiful, and the SWEETEST moment happened when Paul gave Elle a bracelet to commemorate the big day and officially becoming a family.  As you can see from the photos, Elle was smitten with the bracelet and the gesture.  Brooke is pregnant so to add to the fun at the J.Wilson’s afternoon reception,  there was both a cake cutting for the wedding cake AND a cake for Elle to cut into to find out if she was having a baby brother or sister….I won’t spoil the surprise for you.. See for yourself below, I will let the pictures speak for themselves! 🙂

Gorgeous inside and out, this family has been SO much fun to photograph! When I photographed them last, Ezra was a newborn and I was pregnant with Cece! One of my favorite photos from that session of baby Ezra is still the cover photo of my facebook business page. 🙂 Whitney is pregnant with a baby girl this time around and is absolutely GLOWING! See for yourself! A few of my favorite things during this session:

  • How playful Ezra was and how I snapped what is now my NEW favorite pic of him as he stared right into my camera. I flipped through them as they uploaded and his little face literally took my breath away. He isn’t a baby anymore, that’s for sure!
  • I love how Zach and Whitney look at each other.
  • The black and white photo of Whitney laying on the ground is absolutely one of my favorite maternity photos I have taken.

PS – A quick plug for Zach and Whitney – the are owners of SchneiderFit! Check them out for all your personal/group training needs.  Also, Whitney’s instagram account (@mamafitwhit) is a welcome mix of motivation, “real talk” about being a mom/badass female and cute pictures of Ezra.  Follow her, you won’t regret it. 🙂

Getting to be in the courtroom to commemorate an adoption was a first for me, and an honor.  After the official court proceedings, we were able to also take “official” family photos!  As you can tell from these smiling faces, it was a VERY happy day. 🙂

I’ve said it once and I will say it again…my FAVORITE part of photographing families is the opportunity to watch them grow!  I met the Herber Family last year right before Grayson turned one year old (you can see how much he’s grown by clicking here).  Oh, what a difference a year makes!  He kept us on our toes during our session by running and finding every fun stick or leaf our location had to offer.  I had so much fun capturing his expressions! Major props to his mom for thinking to bring bubbles – they certainly brought out some smiles.  Their dogs came along for the ride again this year and they were hilarious to watch as they chased/herded/licked their brother.  I had to include a photo of what happened when we went over by the pond – Grayson literally started trying to undress himself because he wanted so badly to swim.  Happy second birthday, sweet Grayson!  I can’t wait to see how much you grow this year!
