Color Schemes

Wondering what to wear to a photoshoot? Always come prepared with multiple outfits so that you can adjust with the environment.  Here are some ideas from my latest photoshoot with the super chic Kristin and Doug!

Wonderful Windy Photoshoot

Today I finally got to take the photos I've been waiting months to take...drum roll please. My best friend's engagement photos!!! Not just my best friend, but my best friend since middle school who lived with me in college AND knows all of my secrets! [EEK] AND what a day for photos--32 degrees and 25 mph winds! We had a lot of obstacles in our path today, but we conquered them to get some beautiful shots. Here's a peak of our fun, freezing, windy shoot!
Kristin has an amazing collection of beautiful things including tea cups, pins, vintage jewelry, and globes. So what better place for a ring photo?
Kristin went to Kenya to do mission work, so they have their "hearts" over Africa.

Doug traveled all the way from Florida to North Carolina to win Kristin's heart, so I liked the idea of her running into his arms :). [How romantic is that!?]

Kristin had a Pinterest inspiration moment where she saw photos of a married couple making lots of different funny faces, so these were super fun to look through!

The little table below is filled with things that are important to Kristin and Doug from their past and present.

This is just a tiny peek, there are so many more, and I am so happy that we finally got together and took these! I love you Kristin!

Beautiful Things

I had the honor for the past year of photographing one of the sweetest couples I've met and their beautiful baby girl.  Remember THIS FAMILY?  Well, I had the honor of taking photos at Annazalie's first birthday party.  She is the luckiest little girl in the world [and I think you'll agree when you see how beautiful her party was!].  Her parents are so creative and sweet, and they put together the most gorgeous party spread I have seen in my life!  I felt like I had walked into a magazine when I went in to their house because I have honestly never seen anything so beautiful.  Her party was complete with mason jars and paper straws for drinks, great looking and tasting food, and a cupcake smashing.  Here is a little taste:

Unbelievable right?
