I had the wonderful privileged of sharing this SUPER FUN newborn session with another amazing colleague of mine, Sarah Wood of Wood Photography. Laura, mother of now three beautiful babies, is a great friend of mine and I had asked her if we could try out some new props, poses and styles (blog coming soon with our Lifestyle Newborn Session) with Rylan for his newborn session. She loved the idea! Laura and Kelson (daddy) were so wonderful to let us play with Rylan all afternoon. The weather was so perfect we decided to take these outside!! First time for everything...it was great! Rylan was so sleepy and was the best little trooper during all of these "wish list" set ups :) lol
Well I broke my "no shooting wedding’s" rule and I’m so glad I did. It was such a honor to be Josh and Mary Catherine’s photographer on their fabulous wedding day. One of the reasons I do not shoot weddings right now is that I have found them sometimes to be too much. WHAT!?! Of course it is. You invest in all this time, money, effort, planning and scheduling and if something goes wrong then…what will we do. It's completely understandable but I'm not ready for all of that stress. I take my passion so seriously sometimes that it's just to much for me. BUT...God had another plan this November. Mary Catherine really wanted me to be her photographer. I was floored! Really? I told her that I only have photographed 4 weddings. She did not care and that made my heart sing with joy. She had so much faith in me...how could I say no.
I see beauty in all of the Lords wonderful creations. I want to capture them all through my camera.
