Summertime is here!! Our family is enjoying the longer days and lots of outside time! When I was thinking of something different to do this year Elijah started begging to have a lemonade stand. I think we all have memories of selling something in our front yard in the middle of summer! I told him we would work on a lemonade stand and have a sale before the end of the summer and that is where the idea all began! Cory (Father of the YEAR people!!) built me this awesome lemonade stand out of pallets and I went a little crazy collecting props. We had so much fun tonight putting together this portrait setting and the kids had ever MORE fun!! I am so in love with the results and I know that you and your kiddos are going to have just as much fun at our summer mini sessions! This is the first time we have offered mini sessions in the summer so I know they will go just as fast as our fall and spring mini sessions!! You don’t want to miss this!!
WHEN: July 14th, July 20th, or 21st, in the afternoon and evening. (Think sunset, beautiful light!!)
WHERE: Over the mountain, Hoover area
HOW LONG: 20 min mini sessions
HOW MUCH: 2 options!

In the case of rain, we will reschedule for another weekend. All money is nonrefundable but can be used toward a future session if an emergency comes up and you can’t make it (I understand life with kids!).

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Romans 12: 9
We love all of our couples that decide we are a good fit to photograph their wedding. It is an incredible responsibility to document a wedding. This is a once in a lifetime event. I know weddings happen all the time but every single wedding we attend…. we remember each couple. I love knowing the story of how you met, how he asked you to marry him, I love hearing about your choices, who your bridal party is and WHY. Every single detail in important to me. When I met with this couple, I knew I wanted to be a part of their wedding. We usually do not take two weddings in a weekend but after meeting with them and hearing their story, I wanted to document it. They are so in love. When I met with them the first of the year, the groom was preparing to leave for boot camp to become a Marine. He would be leaving in the coming weeks and was helping his bride with every single detail he could help with before he went off to boot camp. We met, talking over the wedding and they decided at our meeting that we were the photographer for them! I think I was just as excited as they were!! We booked the engagement session days before he left for boot camp. During the months he was in boot camp, they wrote letters back and forth. He graduated just days before the wedding! She went to pick him, take him home, then the wedding weekend started!! You just FEEL the love when you are close to them. The entire day was relaxed and fun!
One of the best parts of the day is the 45 mins alone with had with the couple. The bride decided she wanted extra portraits of them as a couple so we schedule an extra 45 mins together before the bridal party portraits just for the two of them. I LOVE LOVE LOVE all of the images from that time!! What a wonderful legacy of portraits to display in their home and to show to their children one day!

Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
The scripture above what painted on a sign outside the reception of this lovely wedding. Isn’t that a nice scripture to start your wedded life together? We spent last Saturday with this couple! I love all the details of the day… she carried her grandmother’s bible, the decorations were from different grandparents, burlap, lace, beautiful flowers, etc etc! The day was absolutely perfect with so many amazing details!! I am honored to share with you!
