Caitlin & Oliver were so much fun to work with!  These two make such a sweet couple, I loved seeing so many thoughtful moments throughout the day that declared their love in a quiet but meaningful way– like the note Oliver wrote to Caitlin on the bottom of her wedding shoes, the heartfelt speeches from friends and family, the fact that Caitlin’s matron of honor was her mother, the volcano song (I mean seriously Nick rocked it), a song written & performed by Oliver’s mom for their first dance… the list could go on and on. Pretty sure that while this wedding was pretty stinkin’ fabulous— the best is still to come for these two.  Wishing you all the best that God has in store for your marriage!

If you like what you’ve seen at their wedding here’s a list of their fabulous vendors:

It’s so easy to get wrapped up as a parent on your children’s firsts.   The thing about firsts is they are constantly moving on from one to the next.  Each new moment unfolds to a new piece of who they are becoming and who God is continuing to mold them into.  I love that in this session I got to capture these sweet sisters before they all become teenagers—as they straddle that fine line between childhood and beyond.  Love all you girls and am so thankful I get to be part of your journey.  You make me smile & laugh, and honestly I think you are some of the sweetest girls I know.  I pray that God continues to grow you into women of character, strength and eternal beauty.  Thanks for sharing in my boys first trip to the beach… wouldn’t have been the same without you!

I love the idea of vacationing with your family.  This sweet family has made it a tradition and that is something that will stick with all of them for years to come.  Nothing beats spending quality time together, laughing, loving and doing life alongside one another.  Hope these photos will be a reminder of another great year together at the beach.

One nice thing about moving to the south is that the beach is sooo much closer.  I remember as a kid it taking 2 days to drive to Disney— now I can  just hop in a car and 8 hours later your listening to the surf.  I am soooo excited to now offer beach sessions!  Beaches along scenic 30A will be my primary focus—Seacrest, Seagrove, Sandestin, Blue Mountain, Grayton Beach, Rosemary, Santa Rosa, Seascape… but I will have availability at Destin, Orange Beach, Navarre & Panama City area as well!

It was a PERFECT night for a few quick sessions!  I’d love to continue offering mini-sessions if there is enough interest.  Loved working with all these sweet families— with one common theme girls, girls everywhere! :)
