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!

Alex and Alexandra's Wedding Day

Spring peaked just in time for Alex and Alexandra's beautiful Michigan wedding! These two have traveled from Michigan to Texas and back again to be with each other and could not wait for this amazing day to come! 

While an intimate group of friends and family gathered in the sanctuary, Alexandra's father waited to see her in her wedding dress. His expression was priceless!

After a beautiful ceremony, family hugs, and pictures we headed to downtown Jackson for pictures of just the two of them.

There were so many beautiful touches to their day including the beautiful bouquets that Alexandra made with a bracelet in memory of her brother.

Following pictures they were joined by their family and friends to celebrate with dinner and dessert (Complete with traditional Flan!) at The Grand River Brewery.

Alex and Alexandra, your day was so beautiful! I am so glad you two have found your soul mate (Tu media naranja)! Congratulations and God bless your beautiful life together!

Sneak Peek: Spring Garden Family Portraits

Sneak peek from yesterday evening's family session! Their beautiful girls are just the sweetest! It was our first time at this garden, there was so much to see! Their littlest one just melted my heart and lead the way around the garden! We had fun exploring with her! 

The Widstrom Family

It brings my heart such great joy to be able to share these images! This beautiful mommy has waited a very long time to adopt these precious little boys who have called her mommy for quite some time now. And now today they are legally adopted as her very own! Congratulations Laura! I admire so much the love and care you give to your boys! They are blessed to have such a strong, caring, loving, and faithful mommy like you!

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! 

Chris & Shannon's Engagement Session

As promised here is more of this beautiful couple engaged to be married next month! 

We had the most perfect morning for pictures! It was so much fun getting this beautiful couple together with their sweet baby girl in all the spring flowers! Their  little one is such a sweetheart and was mesmerized with the camera (or the silly noises I made for her)! This year has been filled with so many new adventures for these two: new jobs, new move, new milestones for their baby girl. So glad I could capture, not only their engagement, but also this beautiful time for them as a new family of three! Looking forward to celebrating their marriage and capturing their beautiful wedding day with all of their family soon!
