Her older sister looked at me with excited eyes and exclaimed “Amba!  Baby Iza-bella inside!”.  We had just finished getting a few absolutely adorable pictures of Abigail when she heard her sister had woken up.  We quickly ascended the stairs to where Abigail’s 7 day old sister awaited her first photography shoot.   There is nothing more endearing (and terrifying!) as a new big sister.  They are full of love and curiosity as they cuddle their infant sibling.  It’s beautiful, until they go for the eyes.  They always go for the eyes.  But as far as big sisters go, Abigail is going to be a great one.  And as far as little sisters go, Isabella is beautifully serene. 

Isabella was a wonderful model!

This is one of my favorites!

I LOVE how Abigail is looking at Isabella’s hand

The big sister

It’s interesting the places you find your soul mate.  It’s always unexpected, and always a cherished story.  I found mine in an old friend, someone who had walked beside me for years when suddenly my eyes were opened.  Heather found her’s on a dance floor.  I’m not sure that’s the first meeting for them, but I know they fell in love as they danced.  Full of laughter and fun, it seems dancing is the perfect place to have their enthusiasm for life take expression and lead to love.

I loved the contrast of the embroidered leaves of her dress against the real thing

I must tell you, this is my favorite picture!!  Thank you Heather for being willing to get so close to the bumble bees!

And the one that made her laugh and fall in love…

Isn’t Heather’s look precious?

I love diamonds and flowers, so why not put them together?

I’m into the laughter.  I really am.

Again, another of my favs…

The best way to end is to start where they began.  Dancing.

John and Heather, you are beautiful together and we loved working with you.  Thank you for letting us join in your day!

She calls him Jolly, not only because it’s his last name, but because it’s how he makes her feel.  She laughed as she told me.  And she didn’t mean “bowl full of jelly” Santa Clause “jolly”.  More the “I’ve met my soul mate” and definetly the “I’m in love” type of jolly.  Pretty sure you know what I mean.  And now they’re both Jolly.  Two weeks ago these two love birds tied the knot, and we were invited to caputre the day.  Here’s a quick preview…More to come soon…

The weather was warm and the sun bright.  Pink frills and decorations surrounded the yard, all exclaiming a first birthday was about to be celebrated.  A beautiful cake and appetizers lined the kitchen counter, waiting for the guests to arrive.  The birthday girl was unsure of what was about to transpire – although being one was sure it was all about her anyway.  Her white dress with perfectly pink accents distinguished her as the champion of the party.  A wonderful way to celebrate Kennedi turning one.

After having the privilege to photograph Kennedi’s first year, her parents invited me to capture her very first birthday with a few pictures before the party, and a few during.    It was a ton of fun to be able to watch this little beauty transform over the last year.  I can’t wait to work with her again in the future.  Happy Birthday Kennedi!!

Oh, and I had to show you this cake!  Isn’t it absolutely adorable?

There were a lot of really good guesses.  You are an impressive group!  But only one got it exactly on…The order of my favorites are 1. Les Mis 2. Peter Pan and 3. Crime and Punishment.  Those are some phenomenal works of literature!  Les Mis is absolutely beautiful and artful.  For those of you that have only watched Peter Pan, you’ve got to grab a copy.  I’m not sure why I liked Crime and Punishment so much, but I’ve got to tell you, it is a smart work about politics, although not for the squeamish.  And congratulations to Jaclyn, for guessing them in the correct order first!  You’ve got a $15 Starbucks card coming your way!!!

Elements to achieve perfection.  One:  Freshly ground espresso.  Two:  A deep set chair.  Three: The sweet sound of music.  Four: A good book.  (and it if could all take place in Paris, it would be beyond perfection!).

There is an art to a well written work that I am enraptured by.  The words of a song, the phrases of a poem, the imagery of a scene in a novel can take me captive and not let go.  If a line stands out to me, it will repeat over and over in my mind.  I always wonder where the author came up with a description that could capture me so wholly.

My love for literature finds it’s home in my book club.  A group of friends and I meet together, taking turns at picking the book we read through.  It has been an awesome way to read works that I wouldn’t normally pick myself.  Below are the books we’ve read while meeting together.  And in the list lays our contest!  I have 3 books that are my favorites.  Put them in order of my top 3 favorites, and win a $15 Starbucks card!  Either respond in the comments, or on Facebook.  I’ll announce the winner on Friday!  Good luck! (The titles, in order of appearance below are The Catcher in the Rye, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, The Jungle Books, Peter Pan, Les Miserables, Crime and Punishment, Watership Down)

There is something intrinsically lovely about spring.  Flowers not only bloom on the ground, but they take over the trees as well!  Finally you can start leaving your winter jacket on the hanger, and grab a lighter scarf.  I look forward to it every year!  You can finally let winter go and move into the vibrance of spring.

And to make it even more lovely, add in 6 month old Isabelle.  Full of giggles and smiles.  It doesn’t feel all that long ago that we were doing her newborn shoot.  It’s amazing how fast she’s grown (not like it’s anything new that babies grow, but you know what I mean)!  She continues to become such a beautiful girl!

This is one of my absolute favorites of the day….

You got to get some goofiness into every shoot…

Millers, it’s always a pleasure working with you!  I can’t wait for Isabelle’s next shoot!
