Last week I blogged my cousin’s super sweet baby girl, and today I’m blogging her sister’s second baby boy! Steve and Courtney and Koah welcomed Davis Chance into their hearts and homes in October (the same day as my sister’s wedding! It’s been an eventful year for my family). I had the fun privilege of photographing this new family of four on a gorgeous Fall day not long ago. Everyone is pretty smitten with the new addition…particularly big brother Koah…

Sweet little Sadie Joy was born to my cousin and bestie last month. She was prayed for and hoped for and is loved so very much by so many. But especially her first time parents, Megs and Trevor. Megs and I grew up together and to now have babies who will grow up together is a pretty special thing. Four of us cousins had little ones this year, this beauty being the only girl, so you can imagine how doted upon she is…and how fun it is to have a baby girl in the family to shop for!

Sadie Joy, we love you so!

Their’s was no ordinary day, no ordinary wedding. A destination wedding that was a long time in the works, there’s something to be said for getting away and spending time vacationing and celebrating with your guests. Many friends and family flew down to Puerto Vallarta to witness Mike and Sarah become husband and wife, and they felt that love and support on that gorgeous day at Las Caletas, Mexico. Sarah and her girls enjoyed a morning of pampering on this private getaway accessible only by boat. I found them tucked away in the jungle when we arrived in the afternoon for photos, popping bubbly and putting the final touches on hair and makeup. The day flowed effortlessly and beautifully, from the touching first look for Mike and Sarah, to the heartfelt and tearful I do’s at sunset, and ending with a beach dance party under the stars until midnight.

This was a wedding that we were more than honored to be a part of. We can’t thank you enough, Mr & Mrs Clark! Congratulations! xo
