Luca, Trace, Stuart & Maelin

I couldn't wait to do this session of cousins!  I had the pleasure of taking maternity pictures for Sunnie and Stuart back in July, and if you remember they had not decided on a name for their soon-to-be son at the time.  Little Stuart was born on September 13th, and is absolutely ADORABLE!  Sunnie told me that her sister-in-law was also expecting and mentioned having pictures of all of the kids together, but we had to wait for sweet baby Maelin to make her arrival.  Maelin, who looks just like her mother, was born November 1st.  She has the sweetest little cheeks!  The older of the cousins are Luca (who is 4) and Trace (who turned 3 soon after our session).  The boys were complete naturals in front of the camera, and followed directions perfectly!  They both truly smile with their whole face and I love their twinkly brown eyes.

Grandmother Janice joined us the day of the shoot, and I am so happy to be able to provide her with some pictures of all 4 of her precious grand-babies!

Taylor ~ Pigg Wedding: 11.11.11

11.11.11: This is the date that not only will Doug and Leann Taylor remember forever as the day they said "I do", but also the day that I will always remember for having the opportunity to capture the images of their special day ... my first wedding! :)  I met Doug and Leann through another couple in our Sunday School class at church.  Leann contacted me several months ago about taking pictures for their wedding, and I must admit that I was nervous.  Once we began discussing the details and I found out that she was planning a small ceremony, I felt like this would be the perfect opportunity to get my feet wet in the "wedding pool".  The 7pm wedding had a peacock theme (ABSOLUTELY beautiful!) and included Doug's son Zack and cousin Michael, Leann's best friend Barbie and nephew Gaven, along with Maggie who is the daughter of the couple responsible for introducing me to the Bride and Groom.

Leann was so easy to work with, and looked stunning on the big day.  Her bouquet (which she made herself) was gorgeous!  It included a "T" for Taylor, a picture of her grandparents, a bracelet that was her grandmother's, and the necklace that her own mother wore on her wedding day.

Doug, while quiet for much of the time I was around, looked amazing as well (the perfect compliment to the beautiful bride).  He, along with Zack were naturals in front of the camera.

The beautifully decorated reception offered a delicious "potato bar" with all the fixin's, and lovely peacock themed cupcake tree in lieu of a traditional wedding cake.

Doug and Leann, I am so grateful for your faith in my ability and willingness to be my "guinea pigs" for lack of a better term.  I wish you both MANY YEARS of happiness!
