This is our very last wedding post of 2011. We ended with a bang for certain. This beautiful wedding was definitely a great ending to a very good year! The beautifully classic Daniele married the charming and handsome Tyler at UTC’s Patten Chapel. A location Jimmy and I married 9.5 years ago so yes we are very fond of this place :) Everything was absolutely perfect for Daniele and Tyler’s day! The emotions were running high, but this is totally to be expected. Daniele is the first of her siblings to be married off while Tyler is the youngest of his siblings to be married off so there was a roller coaster of emotions among the parents. A seriously beautiful day indeed!

Daniele and Tyler I hope you had an amazing time on your Caribbean honeymoon. You two just got back, right? I hope you love love love reliving your wedding day through these photos . . . :) Here is your wedding slideshow :)

This is my very last family session of 2011. I can NOT believe this year is coming to a close! Each year has been busier than the last in both personal and business life, which makes life fly by that much faster. I am thankful for both. I am thankful for my sweet little family […]

 

This is my very last family session of 2011. I can NOT believe this year is coming to a close! Each year has been busier than the last in both personal and business life, which makes life fly by that much faster. I am thankful for both. I am thankful for my sweet little family now consisting of 4 and I am thankful for each of my clients who I adore so very much! This family most definitely consists of people I adore. They have already seen all of their pictures and slideshow, but it is now time for there blog post. Three months ago when EJ was 6 months old we did our first session together. He is merely a couple of days younger than my ‘E’ who was also born this year. It is so fun to see another little guy living a parallel life as far as age. They are doing many of the same things and if they were to hang out they would surely be fast friends.

Elliott, you are so very charming, your giggle is amazing and your parents absolutely adore you! Here is your slideshow.

 

What little guy does not want to be a super hero and fly around saving the masses? EJ loved flying around last time, but at 9 months old an aerial view induces big big grins!!

These two are most definitely pals!

 Nom nom nom. Oh how little 9 month olds love to put EVERYthing in their mouths! In this instance, a super fun ball does the trick :)

 

 Yep, EJ loves Elmo, but I am pretty sure his smile was induced by the dude behind the furry red monster.

EJ was all about some high fives for his mommy!

 

and some playtime

and snuggles for her too!

 Elliott loves his pull toy plane so much that he will crawl around after it. I accidentally did a little foot self portrait action in this one :)

 :)

 

Hello there cute guy!

 

 love!!

 

 This big guy loves to hold his own bottle.

 

 

 

 The happy guy was not so happy when he was stopped to be burped mid bottle :( That face EJ :)

 This boy is growing and hungry! He was all about continuing to get his grub on.

 Love this girl!

 Hey Smiley!!

 

 A mid meal tickle is definitely a must! Love Michelle’s reaction to her playful boys!

 

 Clap Clap…more please!

 EJ got a hold of his mommy and did not want to let go. He had to give her a big open mouth kiss :)

 This is a hilarious little move he does frequently during mealtime.

 

 …and there he goes again :)

 

 Elliott loves some independent playtime in his pack n play especially if his puppy is lounging near.

 He’s coming to get you!!

 

 It was about time for Elliott to take a nap so a pre-naptime read was a must.

Love the twist on Twinkle Twinkle Little Star that this book offered.

 

 

Watch out Michelle. You thought it was nap time, but your boys thought otherwise. They thought rough housing sounded like a better idea :)

Oh and a little bit more adventure before bedtime never hurt anybody :)

 

 EJ was all about checking out the view through the storm door.

 

 You are so cute. You know that?!?

A couple of more snuggles from each before  he headed off to a nice long afternoon nap :)

 

 

 

You all are amazing!!! :) So excited to be photographing your 1st Birthday Party in just a couple of months EJ!!! :)

Goodness, these guys just leave me speechless. There are really no words for their fantasticness. To know them is to love them…that. is. for. sure.

Goodness, these guys just leave me speechless. There are really no words for their fantasticness. To know them is to love them…that. is. for. sure. We began this year’s documentation when Lila Tate was still in her mommy’s belly (I first wrote daddy’s belly…now that would just be weird), then we journeyed through Lila Tate’s incredible birth, next was her newborn session, and now we have her 3 month old session. Wow how she has changed. Not sure how, but she has gotten even cuter. Her piercing blue eyes and those sweet chubby cheeks make her 110% edible…believe me I know! :) Lila’s big sister, Carson is all the more in love with her little sister now. I mean IN LOVE. . .in her face kinda love. It is SO very sweet! Seriously you four. . .you are awesome and I thank you for allowing me to document your awesomeness!! xoxoxoxo

Here is your Christmas filled slideshow.

Now do you believe me about the edibleness of Miss Lila Tate?!?

 Because two shots of this face are better than only one :)

The Carz and her love for her little sister!

…that in your face…I love you so much…love! :)

 help :)

 Mommy to the rescue :)

Kitchen time for some yummy homemade hot chocolate, but Lila Tate does not care about about this homemade chocolate delicious, because she is all about her daddy…

 …and his very funny faces.

…SEE :)

Oh Lila Tate…you are so very adorable!

 Very very very very adorable!

 Oh yes Carson, we know that adorableness runs rampant in this household!

Carson is all about the kitchen and all about helping her mommy.


I see you! :)

Lila Tate followed me all over the kitchen.

 Carson wondering what in the world I am doing :)

Such a happy little chef!



 LT, if you get ANY cuter I think everyone’s heart is going to explode! Just sayin’!



 Carz you seriously are such a sweet big sis!




 Her mommy most definitely thinks she is scrumptious!

 Aston, you are adorable too! All the Miles girls are so very adorable!!


 Have you ever said no to this sweet sad face? I most definitely could not.

 :):):)

 Seriously Carz…adorable!!!





 Where did Carz go?

 Family time reading of the Christmas Story was up next with prompts via their advent.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Carson’s homemade hot chocolate cooled down at last.

 Back upstairs to Lila’s room for a change.

 …and some bug dancing :)

:)

 

 

 

 Where’s the Carz?

 

 Sweet little chubby cheek smiles from Lila :)

Next was a dance party and Carson was the choreographer. . .

 

 

 

 

:) :) :)

 yayayay!

 Lila Tate you will be part of this dance party crew very soon :)

 

 

 

Next we headed down the road for a little adventure.

 

 

 

 

 An adventure to pick out a fresh winter wreath.

 Carz was very amused by all the big bushy Christmas trees.

 Lila slept almost the entire time.

Carson ran head and as we rounded a tree to find her we saw the cutest little scene.

She had found two little friends just her size and she had crouched down just as they were.

 :)

The owner of the tree stand lead us inside. She felt certain their were photo opportunities inside. She had no idea we were simply capturing the candidness of a 2 year old, but we decided to play along any way:)

 

Lila Tate continued to sleep through all of our shenanigans :)

 Back outside and more 2 year old adventures to be had.

 I could not love this family anymore…they are seriously this awesome in real life…all the time!

 

 Carz, you are the best! The absolute best! :)

 

I think she was acting like her little angel statue friends she met earlier :)

 You are a little beauty…an absolute beauty that is!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Lila Tate awoke at last :)

 Goodness…you. are. cute.

Mallory’s beautiful Bridal Session (has previously been password protected)

Engagement Session

 

 Badgley Mischka bridal shoes…oh yeah!

 

 

This scene cracked me up…Mallory’s grandmother said, “You know Mallory, your eyelashes almost look fake.” These are the reactions after Mallory confirmed that her eyelashes were in face fake :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Loved their first look. The first 8 or so shots are all completely unprompted reactions! :)

Two is better than one, right? In this case, I definitely think so :) Two adorable boys, Samuel and Tyson, are the focus of this session. So stinkin’ cute and their parents, Autumn and Dave are adapting so well to the adjustment of doubling the size of their family. The puppies have also adapted well. The interaction with the babies and the puppies during the session is definitely one of my favorite parts. I loved meeting your sweet boys, Autumn and Dave! I hope to see you each again soon!

Here is your slideshow :)
