three months in with the samples...

loved my newborn shoot with this sweet family in their new home, but this shoot felt like a refresh.  new year, she's three months older now, and her big sister is in the routine with her little sister.  they are a family now, and bailey is in her little three month groove.  after a busy, BUSY fall this shoot was a kick start to a 2017 full of fresh shoots.  some of the same families, but we know each other better now.  we have a groove too, and its my job to capture these families in the way i know they want to keep in print forever.  its also my job to exceed expectations, find these new beautiful moments when a family is in a new stage of family life.  and this shoot felt like i accomplished that.  little details, cozy moments, and a family ready to take on the first year of sweet bailey's life together.

photographing a bride and groom is a journey.   lisa contacted me over the summer and she was just the full package bride in my eyes.  lisa is super motivated and organized, but quickly offered her trust in those creative people around her, including me, and the planning process was totally calm.  her fearless wedding planner, blair laborde, took the reigns and put together a stunning affair.  with simple and understated details, so the focus remained on the reason we were all there in the first place. lisa and walker.  their love.  the connection that had been built on friendship, trust and solidarity.  lisa and walker were a dream to photograph on their wedding day. lisa was cool and collected (and gorgeous).  walker was eager and ready (and dapper) and these two made this day feel like a walk in the park with some very special accents of course.  her blue strappy stilettos, blush pink ribbons, and heavenly lace from her stunning dress to the tiered cake.

special thank you to my guru and dear friend, sara moe, for shooting this with me.
