Tucked away in my iTunes playlist, I had the most perfect song reserved for this very session. French lyrics, fun fast beat, perfect for a high fashion run way. Seriously the perfect song for this perfect session. Curiosity got the best of me so I googled the english version of the lyrics and found the most fowl words I had ever heard in a song. Applauded I quickly went to the polar opposite end of the musical spectrum. Holly loves Taylor Swift and actually kinda looks like her too. Which is most definitely a compliment to both parties who are ARKM gorgeous!!! So yeah, now the perfect Taylor Swift song has become the background for the perfect session.

Holly is a fashionista. Needless to say I had a little, okay big-time wardrobe envy after this shoot. Holly actually left one of her outfits in my car and I thought about hijacking and wearing it before giving it back. Just kidding, Holly. Okay, so the thought DID cross my mind, but who was I kidding…like I could ever fit into any of her clothes. Holly I had a blast and I know you will succeed in fashion merchandising, but know that you always have a career in modeling to fall back on. You are awesome!

Hope you love your slideshow! Click HERE!

my favorite from the shoot…

incredibly awesome red boots…check

AYKM with those eyes!

I love this one…It reminds me of old school hollywood for some reason.

you are b-e-u-ti-ful!

laying in the middle of a traffic-y street to get a super cool shoot…check

Class of 2010

Can you see why I had wardrobe envy? Actually forget the clothes. Can I just have the boots? All of them? Please?

you look 6 feet tall in this shot

this one reminds me of Taylor Swift

Very last shot of the day. Modeling career…cha-yeah!

Almost losing our friendship before it even started over an intense game of monopoly played by our fellas almost 10 years ago, going on multiple vacations and cruises together as The Montikers (a collaboration of our surnames), and now sharing the births of our sweet little girls exactly 18mths apart (Becca and I recently realized that she and I are exactly 18mths apart too!) has all brought our family and this family really close.

Thinking about a decade of friendship and memories makes me excited about the possibilities the next ten years will hold. We are so thankful to have you three in our lives and think that Gabriella Paige Whitaker is the most beautiful (newborn, Ada is 19mths afterall) girl in the world.

I hope you love! Here is your slideshow sneak peek!

Love you!

-brittany-

Love all the affection that Brent showed towards his brand new baby.

Gabbie, you are A-dorable!

Love this family portrait :) Fletcher and Fiona are doing awesome with their brand new little sis!

I feel love in this one

A perfectly fun rug. A shot for scale.

Gabbie was wearing a gift from Aunt Jen. A custom onesie made with love by my favorite Tobi of Ivey Handcrafted! love!

Gabbie is good at making funny faces. Her Mamaw calls Gabbie her little monkey. Gabbie is making a perfect monkey face in a shot feature in the slideshow :)

Makes me smile…

sweetness…

Looks like Brent and Becca are having a conversation in their own secret language.

I think she is in a milk drunk coma. . .

love love love…nothing better than newborn noses and cold wet puppy dog noses!

:)

AYKM..you three are precious!

Daddies and daughters….aah!

ava & lucy . twins

I thought life with twins (especially the identical kind) would look crazy. Unorganized. Chaotic. But, with this family it looks quite the opposite. I would more describe it as  laid back, yet structured. Routine, yet spontaneous. This life is loving. This life is BEAUTIFUL. Jodi and Aaron are the PERFECT parents for twins. They LOVE […]

I thought life with twins (especially the identical kind) would look crazy. Unorganized. Chaotic.

But, with this family it looks quite the opposite. I would more describe it as  laid back, yet structured. Routine, yet spontaneous. This life is loving. This life is BEAUTIFUL.

Jodi and Aaron are the PERFECT parents for twins. They LOVE LOVE LOVE their girls, so much so, they said they would do it again and I am not talking about just have another baby. They said they would not even mind having another set of twins and people you may think they are crazy, but I witnessed a day in their life and let me tell you…they could handle it. This mommy and this daddy have this twin thing down pat.

I want all girls. They are the best. Anyone who knows me knows I say this all the time and of course I will be the one who has a boy next and will then think boys are the most fabulous thing ever. So yes, I acknowledge, my current partiality, but seriously with twin baby girls…I was in heaven…just sweet cuddly cuteness. Times Two.

On a sidenote: {As a photographer, one would *think* I would have the latest and greatest pictures up of my own little sweetheart all around our house, but I don’t. This to say that you would *think* that, Aaron, a fine wood craftsman would have many of his own handmade creations around his house, but he doesn’t. Thank goodness we both have websites that do the showcasing for us. It is definitely worth the click if you want to check out Cabeen Originals. Describing him as talented would be an understatement!}

Okay, now to meet the ladies. . .

Meet Ava and Lucy (and yes, I can totally tell them a part. Did NOT think I would be able to upon the first introduction and seriously I am going to be completely crushed if I end up sticking my foot in my mouth and  Ava is Lucy and Lucy is Ava, but I guess we will just have to see . . .runonsentence)

And to go along with being all over the place tonight I want to throw in that you must note the bumper sticker on Jodi’s MacBook :)

Hope you love your slideshow as in, almost, just almost as much as you love your girls. Okay so the slideshow doesn’t stand a chance :) Click HERE!

I am so bad at picking favorites. How can I choose from double the adorableness??? So…two random favs…the first is Lucy and the second is Ava. Can you tell them apart? Didn’t think so, but check out the slideshow for the full sneak peek of OVER a hundred pics and maybe that will help you out a bit.
