Summer's End: Cyphers Family Portraits

Extra long days, wide open spaces to run in, being together as a family. I’m really going to miss summer!

It’s been wonderful getting to spend more time with friends and family. And in particular this family. So grateful that our boys’ friendship has brought us together. Cyphers family you’ve been a huge blessing to us. Praying you have a beautiful time together these last three days of break.

Baby Sister On The Way: Studio Maternity Portraits

So happy for this adorable family who will be welcoming baby girl next month! What I love most about this anticipated arrival, is hearing how excited their little girl is about having a baby sister. When little brother came along she snuggled him in all his newborn pictures and just melted all our hearts! She loves being a big sister. She and little brother have such a sweet friendship and it makes me glad to know that their little sister will soon share in the closeness of their sibling fun. Amber and Ben, you are such wonderful parents. I can’t wait to see you all together as a family of five!

 

Big sister snuggles from 2017. Can’t wait to see these two snuggle their new sister!





Murphy Family

So many favorites from Monday’s family portraits! These guys are always so fun to see and I just love their busy boys! We had fun exploring a new place, looking at the fall leaves, and being silly together. I just love getting to capture moments like these! Thank you Murphy family for working around the weather and making pictures happen on a Monday. You guys are the best!

Little Milo: A Newborn Session

Meet little Milo just six days new in these pictures all snuggled up with his mommy, big brother, and daddy.  He is such a good baby and seeing him with big brother just melted my heart! There were so many sweet moments with the two of them, that I had a hard time choosing just one for this post. I will probably post more of them on the Facebook page so check in there for more cute lovable moments. Kim and Shawn thank you so much for having me over to capture these new moments of your beautiful family of four. Your boys are so adorable! Congratulations and I can't wait to send you the rest! 

Circus Birthday Sneak Peek

This past weekend I photographed the most spectacular circus birthday party. There were so many adorable details I'll have to share a separate post.  This little cutie just turned one and I hope you love this little preview of how he enjoyed his day. Can't wait to share more soon! 

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!

Already one!

Wow! This past year went so fast! It truly feels like only last month this little cutie was born. I have loved every minute of picture time her. She is so full of personality, beauty, and happiness!

Thank you Lindsay and Dan for choosing me to capture her first year of life milestones. It has been an honor to watch her grow.  She's one amazing and lovable little girl! Blessings to your sweet family and happy new year!

Chris & Jessica's Black Barn Vineyard Wedding

Chris and Jessica's day was blessed with sunshine, family and friends from all over the states, and so much to entertain! It was the perfect day!

When we arrived the Barn was absolutely stunning and the girls were all dressed in matching flannel shirts.!They were so cute laughing, getting emotional, and doting all over Jessica. It was adorable to see how close they all were! 

Growing up their families attended church together and it was at this very church where they first met each other. So prior to the ceremony, tucked away without seeing each other they took a moment to pray. And as guests were seated upstairs you could feel the excitement and joy of the two families ready to come together. 

At Black Barn Vineyard (BBV) everywhere we we went was picturesque! While guests enjoyed the cocktail hour, the bridal party explored the grounds and we made our way into the vineyards. 

Dinner was so delicious! The speeches were hilarious (including the best man's who couldn't be there but gave his via live video chat courtesy of the DJ), everyone enjoyed the sunset while playing lawn games, and talked into the night on the open bar patio. As the sky grew dark everyone filled the dance floor and the photo booth.

And before anyone could get tired (With exception of the little people), the S'more Bar was lit and everyone enjoyed sweet treats from The Oak Tree Lounge. Everyone stayed until the end of the night when it was time to say farewell and Chris and Jessica ran off into a flurry of bubbles to their honeymoon!  

Chris & Jess, it was such an honor to be a part of capturing your day!  You are truly blessed with so much love surrounding you and I'm so glad to know that you have God as your center. Much love and God bless you in your new life together! 

And last but not least, THANK YOUS!
A huge thank you to my incredible colleague, dear friend, and 2nd shooter, Jennifer Jacobs! You are my 2nd half! My mind reader! You do such amazing work! Thank you to Marilynn & Travis for having the cutest kids ever! To the staff at the Oak Tree Lounge, Thank you for the beautiful display of cocktails, wine, and s'more bar. You kept everyone so happy! To Wendy, Lloyd, and the staff of Black Barn Vineyard & Winery, thank you for how you took care of everyone, everything, and created such a beautiful space to celebrate! I hope to work with you all again!

Little 6 Month Beauties

Oh my goodness! Aren't they just beautiful?! These two little dolls came in for a quick visit the other day for their 6 month milestone and I was so glad we got some happy smiley faces. They sure do like when mommy talks baby talk to them and that's all it took for their smiles :) Thank you Rachel for bringing the girls in to the studio! It was fun getting hold them and see how much they love their mama!

Be prepared for a cuteness overload! Little Aedan has just turned one and he and big brother celebrated with cake and a bit of building block fun! Hard to believe this sweet little guy is already one!

Kevin & Katrina's Adorable Family!

When I met this sweet family they had a little toddler running around them at the park and had recently found out they were expecting twins! They spotted me and my three boys (two being twins) and and instantly we connected! I have been so impressed with how these two have transitioned from a family of three to five so quickly. The immense love and care they give to their little ones is incredible and you can see what a blessing they are to them. 

Kevin and Katrina you truly are doing such a wonderful job of raising your little ones. Your kids are angels! At least they were for pictures (Ha! Ha!). I am so proud to know you and am honored to be your friend, photographer, and fellow twin mom. Here's a few highlights from your session. Enjoy! I hope to see you all again soon! 

Soooo Precious!

Just nine days new and absolutely gorgeous! Hope this sweet little face brightens up your day. Congratulations Erin and Austin! She is so perfect in every way. My heart is so happy knowing how much she is loved. Enjoy all her snuggles and God bless your new little family! ~Lindsay
