Best Christmas Card Ever

In the midst of "Christmas card" season for me, I received my favorite
card of all time from my great Uncle Bob and Aunt Susie (affectionately known as UBAS),
and they gave me the okay to share it with all of you.

The top photo of them is from 1940 when they were in first grade together.
The second photo is them "re-creating" the same photo in 2008 :)
Aunt Susie found her outfit at the Goodwill, and Uncle Bob, being a good
midwestern-er, had overalls on hand.

What a great idea! And it's a card that I will always keep.

Love you, Uncle Bob and Aunt Susie... Merry Christmas!

Michael + Adrienne

Michael and Adrienne are an amazing couple with a wonderful love story. Their devotion to each other is evident within the first couple of minutes you are with them (not to mention they are so fun and always ready to smile and laugh).

It was a privilege to photograph their wedding (in my backyard!) earlier this month!

Here are a few favorites...

Adrienne has such impeccable taste.

Look how stunning!
The bridesmaids were styling as well :)
love this photo!

They made vows to each other and then also to their son... very cool
one happy family
and we celebrate!

UMatt & Jodie :: Engagement

My Uncle Matt (affectionately known as UMatt) is one of the best guys I know. He and his new wife Jodie are a wonderful couple and suit each other perfectly.
We went out to Longwood Gardens to take their engagement shoot and had a blast!

Here are a few favorites.
Congrats! Can't wait to hear about St. John :)

1 Year

My husband and I are celebrating our first wedding anniversary today!

Corey, you're the love of my life.
Thank you for being my best friend, my biggest fan, and just being so much fun!
You are the best man I know... you are caring, humble, intelligent, funny, and I could go on and on.
I can't wait to live the rest of my life with you.

OBX 08

I know I haven't been a faithful blogger, but you should be hearing a lot from me over the next couple of weeks! I have UMatt (my Uncle Matt!) & Jodie's engagement photos as well as some from their wedding to come. Also on deck, Brian & Morgan's wedding.

A couple of weeks ago Corey and I went to the Outer Banks for a week with my family. It was such a relaxing and fun time. Here are a few fun ones from our trip.

We only had about two days on the beach, but that gave us some time to hang out, play wacky games (draw down the lane, etc) and to visit the largest sand dune on the east coast!

Just to give you an idea of it's enormity, the dot is Corey...
