A hole in ONE!: First Birthday Cake Smash

Happy one year birthday to this little guy who already likes to play golf just like daddy! He knew just what to do when we gave him the ball and club. Big sister was so lovey with him (just like she was for his newborn portraits).

Amber and Ben your babies are so sweet it was hard to choose only a few pictures for this post! I can't wait to share the rest with you. You are such a kind, caring, and beautiful family. I've enjoyed so much getting to see your little ones grow. 

Have a happy Father's day together!

Golden Sunshine: Jessica & Chris's engagement session

So in love with the golden spring sunshine we had last night! I had planned to only share one or two of this beautiful couple real quick last night but there were so many sweet moments! Aren't these two so adorable!? Cannot wait to celebrate their I do's come this September!

Candy Houses

The weather outside is frightful. But the sweet company inside...so delightful! Enjoyed a snowy weekend with our kiddos! This time I decided to leave the camera inside to enjoy playing with them in the snow. But definitely captured the untouched snow before they came out and our candy house fun! Hope you're getting to spend some good time with your kiddos this Christmas season! 

 

 

Balloons Of Fun & Turning One!

Sharing a whole lot of cuteness on the blog tonight! Hope this little guy brings a smile to your face. He loved his birthday balloons so much he got all tangled up in them! He was super happy to be in daddy's arms and even gave mommy some kisses. He is such a sweetheart! 

Singleton Family Preview

Editing tonight and just had to share a few pictures from last Sunday's family photo shoot! Singleton family it was such a pleasure to take photos for you again! I love taking photos for your family and I can't wait to show you the rest soon! Have wonderful weekend together! 

Sneak Preview: Welcoming little Miss E

A little sneak peek from this adorable family session! Little Miss E arrived two weeks ago and we are all just smitten with her!

Rudd Family Preview

This past Sunday I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet family and all their adorable grandchildren. Congratulations to all of you on the newest little one in your family. She is so beautiful! Grateful to be a part of capturing these memories for you all! ~Lindsay 

Baby BOY Z is here!!!

I just have to share how excited I am about this little guy! He is the newest addition to the family of one of my closest friend's and I didn't realize how much I had been hoping for her to have a boy until he finally arrived! Isn't he SOOOOO aaaaaaaaadorable!!!???!!!

My amazing friends Paula and Stephen, are parents to three gorgeous little girls and even though I said baby #4 was going to be a boy, I felt complete surprise and wonderment at hearing the news that HE was born! As soon as I heard I of course cried like a baby in front of strangers at the store (Well not all strangers. Sorry Ben!) and ran straight to the baby clothing section in search of blue. I could not stop thinking about how much joy God must have known this would bring to their hearts. Girl or boy a baby is a beautiful gift, but when you haven't yet experienced having both worlds (like myself) you always wonder what it would have been like to have both. I am just beyond happy that my friends now have a little bouncing boy in their midst! Congratulations Paula and Stephen! We are so happy that you have a beautiful healthy baby boy!

Happy birthday to this little super hero who turns two years old today! Here's a few from his super hero birthday session. Scroll down for a little comic book fun!

And I just could not resist creating this comic strip with all the fun action shots we had! He was such a wonderful little actor and model and this was such a blast! Happy birthday buddy! I hope year two is filled with tons of fun!

They had a great time visiting with each other and I'm so glad we were able to capture them all together! Looking forward to sharing more from their session soon! In the meantime hope your Halloween weekend is super sweet!

Pastor Family Portraits

I simply adore families who laugh, love, and play together! And the Pastor family is definitely one of these families! 

Getting to see this family and to watch their little ones grow through the years is such a treat! The multi colored brick wall was a super lucky find and their outfits could not have been more perfect for it! So grateful for the beautiful weather and fun we had! 

When I arrived at our meeting spot their kiddos were all ready for the camera with lots of adorable poses! They had fun playing copycat with daddy, pretending to be the Incredible Hulk, and showing me how high far they can jump (see below)! There were so many hilarious silly kid poses I couldn't include them all in this post! And I have to say my face almost hurt from smiling while I was editing!

Little Sweetheart: L's Newborn Session

Absolutely gushing over this sweet little baby boy! 

I always enjoy collaborating with clients and hearing the ideas they have for pictures! Amy and Ryan had so many fun ideas and beautiful family heirlooms to work with I couldn't wait for picture day! It was so fun getting to capture their sweet sleepy guy with his Great Grandfather's purple heart and WWII military medals and his daddy's baseball jersey and mitt! This family was so enjoyable to hang out with! Even their dog was amazingly chill and friendly!

There is nothing so sweet as a newborn baby! I hope this little guy brings a warm smile to your day! Cause he is crazy cute! Congratulations Ryan and Amy! You are truly blessed! Thanks again for letting me a part of capturing this wonderful moment for your family!

Chris & Shannon's Family Church Wedding

Congratulations to this beautiful new married couple! 

Chris and Shannon's day was celebrated with family and the closest of friends at the bride's home church. Her mom and sisters helped her get ready as she prepared to see Chris for their "First Look".

Their "First Look" was so adorable! Shannon tip toed from behind and could not stop giggling!

Mom was all choked up in her moment with Shannon before her dad walked her down the aisle. Her sister and close family friend played a beautiful instrumental rendition of "Tale As Old As Time" from Shannon's favorite disney movie "Beauty and the Beast". 

Following the ceremony they held a dinner where friends and family together prayed a special blessing on the couple. Shannon and Chris spent time greeting everyone there while a game of He Said She Said was played and everyone took turns snuggling their sweet little baby girl. Dinner was incredible and great friends of theirs set up a spectacular photo-booth with a green screen! 

After dinner we had time for more pictures of the bride and groom!  And although it was pouring rain outside, the beautiful steel doors we had hoped to use were thankfully under a covered porch! Here are just a few favorites of the two of them! 

So happy for you Chris and Shannon! It was an honor to be a part of your day! Your families are so sweet and you have such a precious little girl! God bless you both as you begin this beautiful journey as newlyweds! 

And a special thanks to Ryan for helping out with lighting and to my wonderful assistant Erin! You are amazing! 

Family Portrait Session: The U Family

So excited to share some favorites from last Saturday's portrait session with the U family! 

I absolutely love and admire this family so much! The way they love their children is beautiful!  I loved capturing their loving hugs, seeing how patient they were with each other, and watching their little ones love on mommy and daddy! M & T you are doing a wonderful job raising four little ones! Keep doing what you are doing because your kids are SO sweet! It is wonderful taking portraits for your family! Enjoy looking through your new pictures and have a wonderful time making new memories this Memorial Day Weekend!
