first of all, doesn’t she have the prettiest name!! sabina perfectly fits this girl! to me it’s elegant and beautiful, just like her! i have known sabina for about seven years now, ever since we bought the house right next door to her! her and her family are amazing neighbors and it’s been so much fun to see her and her sister grow up!
i can’t believe it’s time for her senior pictures and i am so excited that i get to take them!
this first image ~ elegant and beautiful, am i right or am i right?? see you soon sabina!!
if you don’t currently live near the ocean and aren’t currently visiting one…i’m about to make you super envious! meet jamie and alex who asked me to come along for their wedding in anguilla! you guys ~ this place has the most beautiful beaches i have ever seen. the water is truly the bluest of blue you can imagine yet completely clear at the same time. ugh ~ i want to go back just thinking about it!
everything about the weekend was just perfect! everyone was so completely laid back and relaxed and it made for such a fun wedding day! jamie and alex are such great people. it’s obvious when you see how many people traveled to anguilla to see them get married (there were a lot)!
the wedding was held at the Frangipani Beach Resort and if you ever have a chance, go there! If you can book your flight today, do it!! You can thank me later!
jamie and alex ~ congratulations and thank you so much for asking me along!
these two amazing human beings got married back in January and you’ve already seen part 1. this is part 2 ~ the celebration part!
the day of their reception was a little messy. it had rained a ton the night before and was supposed to rain most of the day and evening. the ground was already pretty wet and their reception was being held at scott’s house — yes, you guessed it…outside. luckily (and super smart on their part), they had put up a huge white tent a couple days before so all was good! and to make things even more perfect, the rain stopped just a couple of hours before the reception was supposed to start. even though it stopped for the most part, a few showers came through periodically through the evening which gave us a beautiful sky to work with so cheers to the weather in the midwest! we soooooo had your number that day!
and the ring bearers…well wait until you see them! during the ceremony in January, one of them obviously wasn’t super fond of having his picture taken. i don’t think he realized that i happen to have two little guys of my own so i’m all good in that department. and if you are having kids at your reception, there is nothing better for them than wide open spaces to run. the kiddos at this reception were the happiest kids i’ve ever seen at a wedding reception!
this reception was full of details ~ primarily put together by both of their moms and aubrey’s sister. they did have some help with the dessert table from sugar jar bakery (if you are near springfield, go there now, seriously yummy stuff)!! wait until you see! the reception also was full of super cool people ~ led by the bride herself! aubrey changed out of her formal dress for something a little more fun ~ because playing air guitar would have been much more difficult in her formal wedding dress!
i’m so, so, so excited about these images! aubrey and scott are just awesome people. i’m so happy they found me and i’m so excited for them. aubrey and scott ~ congratulations! i wish nothing but the absolute very best for both of you! i hope you all had so much fun on your honeymoon!!
okay ~ so these kids are just awesome! i photographed them three years ago. it seems like just the other day but when you think about it, three years is such a long time at the ages these kids are right now!
three years ago, i was just getting to be friends with lauren (the youngest). and these days, we’re old friends…that is until she fell out of my car scraping both knees and elbows and losing her ice cream! I promise I almost grabbed her to help but didn’t want to insult her independence! what a mistake! you know those moments that seem like slow motion while they are happening and you want to do something to change the situation but it’s too late?? this moment will haunt me forever! ugh ~ moving right along!
these guys were so perfect for our session. and by perfect, i mean just as they are normally!
i could not be more excited about these images! i feel like this family is going to be able to look at these and remember a little bit of who they are right now. because as we all know, this time passes by much too quickly!
thinking hoping that some of these will end up in wedding slideshows someday!
go ahead and meet these perfect little beings now!
okay this is danielle and she’s such a cutie! she’s a swimmer and takes it pretty seriously according to her mom! she’s got a gorgeous smile and to me, looks a little like Reese witherspoon. does anyone else see that? i loved that grandma tagged along during our session!
danielle ~ i can’t wait to hang with you during your senior session!! yayyyyy, you are officially a senior! have an awesome summer!
