I love babies. Like, I really, really love babies. They can cry, fuss, and scream all they want, and I’ll still love babies. Not only are they just so darn cute and little, but they’re all so different. Right from the get go. They all have their own look, and they all have their own personality from day one. Aiden is no exception. This little man is such a sweet little guy, and (as you can see from the images) loves to be all snuggly.

My favorite part about lifestyle newborn sessions is capturing not only how the baby looks and their cute, tiny features, but also what they like to do, where they like to be, what makes them have that smirky little grin on their face. Looking back to when my own little guy was a newborn (almost a year ago!) I love to remember how little he was, and how different he looked, but i also love to remember how different his personality was. They change so much, and so fast, and not just in their appearance.

Enjoy some of my favorite images of baby Aiden’s newborn session, including lots of him snuggling in his cozy swaddle. Because, really, what’s better than being snuggly?

A few nights ago, I was listening to the radio while I was stuck in traffic. To be completely honest, I usually hate the radio. The songs are the same, the djs are all pretty annoying, and I’d rather plug in my iphone and sing like a fool to some pandora. But this night, I ended up listening to the good ‘ol fm. They were discussing marriage, and they took a caller. This caller starting said something that I’ve heard at many weddings, but for some reason, it really stuck with me this time.

“I hope, that on your wedding day, you love each other the least.”

Sounds pretty awful, right? I mean, you should probably love your partner a decent amount on the day you marry them! But when you really think about it, only the truly lucky couples love each other the least on their wedding day.

Last year, I met with Allyson and Jon at a local cafe to talk wedding. It was obvious that they were in love. When we shot their engagement session, they were even more in love. And on their big day, they loved each other far more. Each and every time I was with the couple, I guarantee, if I were to ask them, they’d say, “I’ve never loved him/her more than i do today.” Now that their wedding has passed, I know they love each other more now than they did that very day. (Even if they didn’t think that was possible.)

That’s the magic of true love. You don’t think you can love someone any more than you do, and then all of the sudden…you do.

So, Allyson & Jon – I hope that every day of your long marriage, you will love each other more than you did the day before.

I’m a sucker for sneak peeks.

Allyson let each bridesmaid choose their own dress to reflect their personal style – I love how they ended up looking as a group!

One of the best parts about photographing weddings is seeing people who are just so in love. You know, the couple that you look at, and you just know – they’re perfect together. Nate and Jamie are one of those couples. It’s a dead giveaway just by the smiles on their faces. They both had the biggest smiles on their faces from the time they were getting ready with their bridal party, all through their lively reception. And smiley couples…smiley couples are the best couples.:)

Enjoy some of my favorite images from Nate and Jamie’s incredible day at Lionsgate.

Nate and Jamie’s bridal party was a blast – all about the fun!
And how can you resist an adorable pup like that?

Jamie thought of all the details to reflect just how adventurous and outgoing her and Nate are as a couple – including lime green bridesmaid shoes, and some pretty awesome bridal heels, too!

P I N I T P I N I T P I N I T

I love all of the fun details at Lionsgate!

Kelly & Eric’s wedding was straight out of a Disney fairy tale. The big dress. The Cinderella shoes (except pink, which is way better than glass). The Disneyworld honeymoon. And most importantly, the story-book love.

Here are some of my favorites from their incredible day.
