Throwback Christmas Tree Family

As we wait for baby I have made a list of sessions and weddings I have yet to blog and the list is quite extensive so be prepped as I enjoy my maternity leave to be blasted with the awesome-ness I have worked on the last year (and a half…! or more…)  We are getting ready to decorate our home for Christmas today and so this seemed like a fun thing to decorate my blog with too 😉 For all of you who wish for Christmas decor to come out post Thanksgiving just refer back in a few weeks! :p  In general we decorate November 1 but waiting on baby has pushed us back a bit.  When do you decorate?

And this little guy, he is just the best!
Baby hands!!!
We left their beautiful home for a few portraits at a local park just down the block!! This little guy is so lucky to have such a fun neighborhood park just down the street!
And then on the way home Rachel suggested this little road, it is amazing!!! Tucked away just blocks from downtown!
Little guy couldn’t hang and need a nap! 🙂
He has a sailboat mobile!!!! Ahh!!2016-08-04_00202016-08-04_0021

Purely Love: Jen & Brad

These two are getting married SATURDAY!  We took their pictures a few months ago (and I am using them as a TBT 😉 ) They really wanted rolling hills so we asked for permission to use a golf course during a slow time and they said yes!!! (we are so lucky!) The images turned out FANTASTIC! And we even had a ‘friend’ show up 🙂  I can’t wait to hang out with you guys at Waldenwoods Saturday! 🙂

I am in love with these silhouettes!!! ❤

Purely Wedding: Jon & Kate

Another beautiful wedding hitting the blogs from June (of this year!!) I am working hard to try to keep up to date this time 🙂 :p

Jon and Kate got married at the beautiful Matthaei Botannical Gardens on a beautiful Sunday!!  Kate had an amazing dress with her first pair of jimmy choos!  Her maid of honor had to sew her into the dress but you would have never known and it made for great pictures 🙂 View More: More:
We did their first look in the conservatory and it was perfect! I just love Jon’s emotion!View More:
Next they signed the Ketubah before we headed out for the ceremony.   View More:
Their ceremony was performed under a birch tree chuppah and it was *so* beautiful! View More:
The day could not have been more gorgeous! View More: More: More:
