Looking back 2019 was such an incredible year filled with even more incredible people! If I could I would go through and share every single image with you but then we would be here for days. So I'll just share with you the best of 2019.
The E family both started the year and ended it. Honestly its crazy to me how fast their littles have grown even this last year. Can't wait to see what this next year holds for their family!
Little Greyson turned 1! And I got to celebrate with his family and share the cutest smash cake! His bib says it best: More Cake Please!!
Aubrey & Thomas were the first wedding of 2019! Let me tell you guys what troupers these 2 were! Their wedding happened the day after what I think was the biggest snow storm of the year! But they braved the cold and we were able to capture some beautiful winter images! Also they had a donut bar at their reception so win win win!
My sister became a momma! And it was such an honor to capture this beautiful time in her sweet little family's life!
A long time friend pursued her yoga path and started offering classes in the woods! Don't you think there should be more nature yoga pictures?
My sister-in-law was able to grow her piano career and got to capture new portraits for her new website!
These little cuties celebrated their Baptism and First Communion this year! I've taken pictures of their family since Mr. Dayton was born and what a privilege to be a part of their VIP group!
Meet my nephew Anchor! This little sweeties pictures can speak for themself!
Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Ramsdell! They eloped earlier in the year but celebrated their love with family and friends in June! The week before their celebration their were huge storms in the forecast but thanks to a lot of prayers the sun came out and it was the perfect day!
Happy Birthday to my niece & nephew! I love a good smash cake session and these 2 had a blast! More Cake Please ;)
It was so much fun catching up with this graphic designer friend who I've known since the begging of my photography career! In the past couple years we have taken steps to become our own boss' and I'm so grateful our paths crossed again!
Say hello the H family! They've been in front of my family before but gained a new sweet face!
Meet little Malachi!
Yay for more babies! I'm so grateful for this lifelong friend for asking me to take these precious pictures of her sweet family!
One of the highlights of being a photographer is capturing important moments in friend's lives! This sweet bride to be has been a friend of mine for over half of her life. Watching her find the love of her life is such a joy! She also let me put a check on my photography bucket list with these smokey engagement pictures!
These little ladies were a highlight of my photography year! I loved our play date in the park! Dancing, bubbles, big kisses, along with hide and seek these are a few of my favorite things.
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. P! I wish there was a way to share their every aspect of their love story. A story that started in high school and stretched across the years. Their wedding day brought tears to the eyes of every one there.
So happy for another great adventure through the woods with the B family!
Yay for babies! So happy for these sweet friends who welcomed little Hudson to the world! Thank you for letting me capture these precious moments!
