Welcome Caroline | Sweet Baby Girl

9.3.14         Personal, Portraits

No, this is not an announcement that we are expecting a girl.  Even though we are expecting a sweet little bundle in late January, we will wait for the gender surprise for birth day.  This is celebrating our dear friends’ sweet baby girl, Caroline.

Tony & Meredith are dear friends of ours and we have very much enjoyed the fact that they live just blocks away.  Around 23 weeks into Meredith’s pregnancy, she became at high risk for going into very early labor and was put on very restrictive bed rest.  This was especially heartbreaking after their loss of their 20 week old baby last summer.  Praying for another day in the womb, turned into prayers for another week, and turned into praising God for a full 39 weeks baby, born just days away from her due date.  So many things about babies are just a miracle and Caroline is an answered prayer.  Tony has been going through chemo throughout the pregnancy and although taking on his own health challenges, was an incredible help to Meredith as she went through the months of bed rest.

Although baby pictures aren’t something I offer anymore, I couldn’t help but capture this sweet milestone celebration for Tony and Meredith.  Caroline, you’re a doll, and I’ll do what I can to teach Jonathan and Charlotte gentle touches for the baby. (A skill that will come in handy later)

Stephanie & Teddy | Ritz Charles Wedding Part 1

8.9.14         Weddings

Stephanie and Teddy’s relationship began in those awkward days of middle school;  who thinks who is cute, who is willing to write them a note and actually call them on their land line at home.  They had an early start at life together, then stayed together through high school and weathered a very long distance relationship through college.  Their wedding was a big milestone, celebrating all the years they already have spent together and all the family and friends that have been by them through it.  More importantly it marked the beginning of a new chapter for them, becoming husband and wife.  Stephanie and Teddy are a wonderful compliment to each other and they are both such kind and loyal people.

Sarah & Jon | Salt Creek Golf Resort Wedding Reception

7.3.14         Weddings

After the balcony ceremony, cocktails over looked the golf course and then the guests were greeted into a reception room full of beautiful flowers.  Sarah &  Jon’s reception kicked off with some witty and heartfelt words my Sarah’s dad. Many of the traditional things took place, cake, toasts, special dances, but then things looked a little different as dueling pianos provided the entertainment for the evening.  Yes, there was dancing like with a DJ or band, but it was very interactive and entertaining even for the guests who enjoyed sitting at their tables and visiting.  My favorite request was “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” by Sarah’s nephew the ring bearer, who by the time it came up already had fallen asleep from all the fun.  The vendor team of  Jennifer at Salt Creek and Rachel coordinating for Lilly Lane were a dream to work with.
