marcia . surprise party {chattanooga family photography}

July 17th, 2011

So last year, I photographed Lee’s surprise 60th birthday party. This year the surprise party for Lee’s wife, Marcia for her same milestone birthday. I am floored that Marcia just turned 60. She does not look it one bit! Marcia is so very gorgeous and not only has a beautiful exterior, but is equally beautiful […]

 

So last year, I photographed Lee’s surprise 60th birthday party. This year the surprise party for Lee’s wife, Marcia for her same milestone birthday. I am floored that Marcia just turned 60. She does not look it one bit! Marcia is so very gorgeous and not only has a beautiful exterior, but is equally beautiful on the inside. Her family and closest friend’s gathered around and showered her with love for a fun filled surprise party. Thank you so much for inviting me to be a part celebration! It is so awesome to be surrounded by such an amazing group of people!!! Happy Birthday Marcia!!!

 For more many many more pictures fun from The Flip Booth and additional coverage of the party including THE surprise then be sure to check out the slideshow. Click HERE

 The Flip Booth made an appearance . . .

The birthday girl!!! Got to love Marcia!!! Happy Birthday Marcia and much much love to you!!!

This is Marcia’s two granddaughters! They are so adorable! They wanted to show their Grammy that they love her dearly!!


This little girl was soooo cute!

Lee and Marcia are the missions elders at their church. This is a group that will be leaving soon for full time foreign missions.

Love Lee and Marcia!!

 Lee and Marcia with their silly/fabulous 5 grandchildren

 Their youngest granddaughter wanted to specifically convey this message. . .

:)

 “SURPRISE!!!!!!!”

 “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia”….a little Brady Bunch action

Marcia’s name is very commonly mispelled

 

 Two of the three grandsons :)

 

 

 

Third grandson :)

Marcia’s son has an inside joke with her about her history of accidentally offering expired milk to the grandkids :) Pretty sure we harass our mom for the exact same thing :)

Lee and Marcia are Nashes. These peeps are also Nashes, but completely unrelated :)

These peeps are not Nashes :)

They are however grammatically correct. I, on the other hand, am not.

reid . newborn {chattanooga newborn photography}

July 17th, 2011

Love. The definition: a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person I would say this accurately describes how little newborn Reid’s mommy and daddy feel about him. It has been amazing to witness their love at first sight relationship with their little guy. Thank you for inviting me into your lives to document this amazing […]

 

Love. The definition: a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person I would say this accurately describes how little newborn Reid’s mommy and daddy feel about him. It has been amazing to witness their love at first sight relationship with their little guy. Thank you for inviting me into your lives to document this amazing love!

I hope you love your slideshow! Click HERE.

PS: To see Reid from the very beginning check out both when he was a cute baby bump and then the first time we laid our eyes on him during his birth session

 

Doesn’t Ruthann look beautiful?!? Mere days out from having a baby and she already doesn’t look like she ever had a baby. Meet newborn baby Reid. Adorable? Yes. Yes and Yes!

:) Ruthann loves it when he does his kissy face. She was trying to get him to do it. Reid actually ended up doing it later on during the session. . .that photo is in the slideshow.

Tony smiles in adoration of his wife and newborn son

Yep, they are smitten by this little guy!

Beautiful beautiful baby boy!

It was nap time for baby Reid. Tony worked his burrito magic with his swaddling abilities.

Watching over little Reid. Will he or will he not go to sleep for us? That is the question :)

He reminds me of a little bug raising up his little “bug tail” and then he went to sleep.

…though not for long. Here, Tony is giving a little pep talk.

So Reid decided he really did not want to go to sleep at this point so Ruthann more than content with snuggling him instead and while doing so I think we may have captured Reid’s first smile. Okay, so perhaps it was not his very first smile but I think it would be safe to say one of his first 10 smiles.

So presh!

Reid started out his little newborn life in a pretty jaundiced state, so he got to take daily sunbaths to help combat his newborn tan.

It cracks me up that newborns will sleep with their limbs in the air.

Sam, the dog has been super sweet with his brand new little bro. Sam was very intrigued with this new creature in the house while said creature was doing his tummy time.

:)

So sweet!

Ruthann mentioned she loves both Reid’s tuff of hair on the top of his head and the longer hair on the back of his head. Well here is the latter and I just love Ruthann’s smile.

little and big

:)

I wonder if he is going to fore go his pacey for his fingers.

sweet snuggles

I like these two different perspectives :) while Reid is attempting sleep

Reid was not a huge fan of the idea so Ruthann snuggled him instead :)

This shot cracks me up a little :) Reid, you look really cute when you are upset :)

Fed, swaddled and. . .

wide awake.

Too much to see, people. Too much to take it. :)

Tony was giving Ruthann a hard time on her swaddling abilities :)

Sweet little profile

You’re adorable little guy!

So sweet!

So very sweet!

I love baby feet and I am not talking just any part of a baby’s foot. I specifically love the bottom of baby’s feet…that part is my favorite!

If Reid was not already adorable enough, he also sported a custom onesie by Ivey Handcrafted and sported it he did…very well!

I had a little fun with photographing his onesie before it was given to him. Cuteness overload!!!

You three are so awesome and I consider myself one lucky girl to be able to spend the next year documenting your life together! We are going to have a good time. I can tell already!

ava + lucy . prepping for baby brother {chattanooga family photography}

July 12th, 2011

Ava and Lucy have made several appearances on the blog, but this will be the very last sisters only post for these two.  The girls are welcoming a baby brother this week. Yep, their mommy is headed in for delivery this Friday and I am beyond ecstatic to be documenting the birth, but we will […]

 

Ava and Lucy have made several appearances on the blog, but this will be the very last sisters only post for these two.  The girls are welcoming a baby brother this week. Yep, their mommy is headed in for delivery this Friday and I am beyond ecstatic to be documenting the birth, but we will leave the little man talk to his debut blog post :) In the meantime, I am in love with these two twins!!! They are absolutely hilarious. . .Ava can sing the chorus to Bob Dylan’s “Mr. Tambourine Man” while Lucy has quite the ice cream fetish. Covered in chocolate ice cream from head to toe, Lucy repeatedly declared, “I love chocolate forever!”. Hi-lar. . .both of them!!!

 Girls, its about you and only you. . .one last time :) Hope you love your slideshow. Click here.

This is Miss Lucy with her Mr. Bear

and this is her equally adorable identical twin sister, Ava

and here is their little bro in the form of an adorable baby bump!

Lucy and Mr. Bear go together like peas and carrots.

Mr. Bear doesn’t hold Lucy back. He instead propels her forward. No soccer player has anything on the Lucy/Mr. Bear combo

:)

Ava did not have a fury companion, but I was certainly impressed with her 2 year old soccer ball kicking skills

The girl’s grandparents came along for some fun! I loved seeing them interact together! Lucy was obsessed with the hippo bubble machine :)

Lucy really enjoyed popping the bubbles while

Ava loved dancing and spinning in the them.

The girls then wanted to get a closer look at the water (The Tennessee River).

So everyone came along :)

Lucy had the bubble machine in hand the majority of the time.

The girls loved their granddads reaction to the bubbles.

Ava decided she wanted to see his reaction when she blew the bubbles in his face. She liked the reaction she got :)

So sweet! The girls were very much enthralled with each word of the book.

Leaning in to get a closer look at the book’s drawings.

Lucy showing off one of her famous silly faces :)

Ava’s reaction after her silly face. So cute!

Love how Ava looked back for her sister

Ava still loving the hippo bubble blower :)

One more stop by the swing. Ava’s turn to swing with her daddy before leaving the park.

Lucy’s amazing two year old eyelashes.

Lucy had the best view

The girls were mesmerized by the ice cream deliciousness that was before them.

I love little chubby two year old wrists :)

Miss Lucy thoroughly enjoying her ice cream. This is prior to her declaration, ” I love chocolate forever!!!”.

Love the big drip of ice cream

Ava was all about the sharing of the ice cream. She shared with mommy and daddy and wanted mommy and daddy to share with her.

You two girls are one pair of perfection that is for certain! I am so excited to meet your little brother along with you on Friday!!!
