When Rachel and Ryan’s wedding day finally arrived, clouds and rain loomed and threatened all morning. Eager and excited, but also anxious about the weather- Ryan and Rachel kept close eyes to the sky. Their wedding, that they had planned, perfected, and dreamed about for months before was set to be outside with the beautiful Mississippi in the background. Not ready to throw in the towel and eager for the outdoor wedding they pictured, the bride and groom eagerly waited as the ceremony inched closer and the clouds stubbornly hid the sun. But, just a time, a peak of sun and a break of rain. The sky cleared, chairs were placed with fingers crossed, and “plan A” was still a go!
The weather cooperated and the sun shone and the front lawn of Quarters 1 became a beautiful backdrop for a dream wedding!
Hello all! It has been a while since I posted in my blog, I generally use my facebook page to share sessions for easy social media sharing for my clients. I am turning to my blog today to share something very exciting with you all. I am looking forward to a lot of exciting things personally and professionally in 2018! One change to my business is that I would like to explore more lifestyle type photography. I also find these sessions to be so beautiful and real, like getting a peek into that exact moment in a family’s life. The real. The right now. The moments that all too soon will fade into new moments. Also, the winter season always gets this photographer stir crazy so I am always looking for new ways to stay busy!
Today I’d like to share a session I did with my own family, a sample of the new sessions I am offering called “a day in the life”. Right now I’m offering special discounts for clients wishing to book this type of session as I build up my portfolio. If you are interested in booking a day in the life session, contact me for more information!
somewhere over the rainbow
skies are blue
and the dreams that you dare to dream
really do come true
When I first began this blog a little over a year ago, I began with this blog post here. That post showed my heart and shared the story of my nephew Owen who left us too soon. It is with a glad heart that I write this post today- my sister Amy and her husband Josh had their sweet rainbow baby Abigail Rose on July 27th.
If you’re unfamiliar with the term, a rainbow baby is a baby born after loss.
“It is understood that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of any storm. When a rainbow appears it does not mean that the storm never happened, or that we are not still dealing with it’s aftermath. It means that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds. Storm clouds may still hover, but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of color, energy, and hope.” -Author Unknown
This post is a bit different than normal- there will be a few more images as it encompasses two separate photoshoots. One shoot was taken at the hospital during the first 48 hours of life and the second taken once Abigail was home. This is not so much a preview post as it is a “look-at-my-beautiful-new-niece-I-love-her-so” show off type post…
Anyway, it is with great joy that I introduce our sweet beautiful rainbow baby Abigail Rose!
