One of my favorite Christmas traditions is visiting the tree farm to find the perfect tree. There’s something magical about it, especially now with a little one who is discovering the world and the wonder of things like Christmas. In light of this, we decided to invite the family along this year and combine our tree hunt with family photos.

Which might have been asking for a little too much…some of the magic may have been replaced by tears and the pressure of getting all those photos taken before the little ones’ patience ran out. Or before our toes froze. Still, we got some festive photos with those we love to capture our favorite season. And in the end, a pretty nice tree, too!

Merry Christmas!

I’m ever grateful for my brides and grooms…for trusting me as their wedding photographer, for allowing me to join alongside them on one of the most important days of their lives and preserve their memories in photographs. And to celebrate with them. The photos below are just a glimpse into what this past season looked like. Here’s to these newlyweds who made 2015 a little lot more beautiful!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! What a lovely season you’ve had and even lovelier couples!ReplyCancel

I love weddings and working with brides and grooms, but lifestyle session also have a piece of my heart. It’s such a treat when you’re invited to document a small piece of a couple’s or family’s life, be it the eager expectation of a new little one, their arrival, an anniversary, or just because. Especially now that I have a growing family of my own, I know just how special it is to document this fleeting time. Here is a little recap of some of the love and laughter I was able to capture in 2015…
