Meghann & Boomer

I had the privilege of being the photographer for their wedding in Destin, Florida a couple of weeks ago. I had a blast with them throughout the day as they got ready for the ceremony. They have such a fun family and I am so glad you all let me be a part of your special day! and a special thanks to Ryan for inviting me! :)

Here's a few sneak peeks for you guys!

road trip!

My best friend Kelli and her two kiddos, Hailey and Nathan, were in town visiting this weekend. On Saturday we met up with some friends at Chuck E. Cheese and then headed to Prattville to have dinner with her family. When we were finished with dinner she mentioned how fun it would be if we could go to the beach (the beach fever kicked in after she watched Hannah's 2nd birthday video filled with beach trip pictures!) and so after a short talk, a quick stop to her parents house- it was 8:00 and we were on the road to the BEACH! At 11 p.m. we rolled into Gulf Shores and got a hotel room right on the beach.... ahh, the perfect location!

The kiddos were SO excited and this was actually Hailey and Nathan's first trip to the beach so it made that much more special. They were wide awake at 6:30 the next morning and it was so fun to be able to open the door to the balcony and let them walk out and see the ocean! By 7:00 we were ON the beach playing followed by a trip to the indoor pool for a bit. We were on limited time so we packed in some souvenir shopping and then had lunch at LuLu's and then back on the road we went. It was such a whirlwind trip but definitely a Stephanie and Kelli tradition! We were always up for a fun road trip!

Here's just a couple from yesterday morning :)

They loved sitting on the edge of the pool and splashing with their feet. They would just giggle and giggle. :)

I just adore little Hannahs!

I bet you could never guess why, eh? :) I got to spend the afternoon with this little Hannah last week. She is just so precious and you should check out her nursery- I think she's got the most gorgeous nursery I have EVER seen! (Great job, mom!) Here's just one little sneak peek for you guys- I'll have your full gallery to you soon!

This has been one of my faves so far....

one week old...

I got to spend the afternoon with two of the most beautiful little girls! Ava welcomes her new baby sister- Mia! She was only 7 days old- such a perfect time to capture the true "newborn" shots. And let me just tell ya, little Miss Mia was a dream to work with! She did so great and would just snuggle right in. :)

It was SO great to meet you all and I look forward to seeing you all again soon! Hannah too :)

Here's a couple of sneak peeks for you!

Mr. T

This past Sunday I got to meet little Mr. T and his wonderful parents out at the gardens for a little photo session. He is just too cute for words! He's at that perfect age too- full of personality, smiles and not able to run from the camera! :) I'm so glad we got to meet up! Here's a couple of sneak peeks for ya. :)

it's Hannah!

I had a session out at the gardens on Sunday afternoon and Chad decided to take Hannah out there with me so we could play around after my session. We also went to college with my photo client so it was good to all get together with the kiddos!

I set out on a mission to get a good print-worthy picture of Hannah for the family but she was working overtime to avoid eye contact with me. ;) Here's a few of my faves- even if she's not looking at me! :)

twenty tiny toes

wait- make that FORTY! I had two twin sessions this past Sunday (yep, all at the same time!) and we had such a great time. Those little ones were just so adorable :) Here's a couple of my faves from our afternoon together-

weekend fun!

We've had a pretty relaxing weekend compared to last weekend's chaos! We broke out the new bubble machine and Hannah had a blast with it! I do have to admit it was difficult to hold it in one hand while trying to take pictures with the other! I just *had* to take pictures, ya know? It's an obsession really. :)

Now.... this picture I like to call PROOF. Proof that we actually having living, colorful flowers in our yard right now! Hannah and I planted these bad boys last weekend and so far, so good! Ask me for an updated picture in a month. :)

Last but not least- Hannah got a hair cut yesterday! She did SO good sitting up on her little horse. When she was done she looked in the mirror and said "Hair cut!" and walked around showing off her hair cut to everyone. :) A hair do these days is not complete without "tails" or a crown!

check it out!

Check out my friend Hope’s new website! Doesn't it look great?! AND- if you check out the "Birds of a Feather" gallery- you can catch a glimpse of me and the Hannah! I'll give you a hint- we're on the first page in that gallery :)
Hope and I did a session swap a couple of months ago when she was in the states visiting family. We had so much fun that day!

Oh, and Hope- I PROMISE I'll get that CD to you soon!!! :)

New banner!

Nope, you're not in the wrong place- I actually have a REAL banner now! Granted it's not the fabulous one I envisioned with pictures and all that jazz- but now that I actually know how to make one- I'll be sure to change it up soon! :)

Double shot of cuteness!

I had quite the weekend- I had not one, not two, but THREE sets of newborns to photograph! Can you say, BABY FEVER?! I had so much fun getting to meet all of these amazing families and their new additions.

My first session was with baby girls M & M. The parents gave me a warning that the girls did not like to lay next to each other and we might have a challenge with the shots of them together- but I gladly accepted the challenge and off we went. Not five minutes later- look what we got :)

Ok, so after awhile they wanted their space! :)
