Sam proposes to Krissy!

When Sam asked me to photograph his proposal to Krissy, I was ecstatic!.
I felt honored to be asked to be part of such an important day.
My friend Lia Ballentine, who is also a wedding and lifestyle
photographer, was there to document the event as well.
It was great getting to share the experience with someone who is a
great friend and whose work I respect.

Krissy and her two sons went on a scavenger hunt, devised by Sam, and each place he sent them had a clue to help them figure out the next location. The cards he left behind at these locations each had one word from the phrase, "Will You Marry Me?" on it.

When they arrived at Market Square, Krissy seemed to glow, and she looked like if she smiled any bigger her cheeks might pop off! It was so darn cute! Of course, she said "Yes!"

Aww! True love!

I am convinced that Christmas is the best time of year to get engaged! Look at the gorgeous tree in the background! There were plenty of pretty Christmas lights and decorations throughout Market Square that night.

Look how happy the boys look! They seem like great kids! I know Sam is truly looking forward to spending more time with them!

See what I mean by her smiling?

Congratulations Sam and Krissy! I am so happy for you both.
You guys deserve every happiness in the world!

Daniels' Family Christmas Session

Little Mr. Josiah sits in front of the fireplace contemplating life.

Just as he conked out, we very carefully wrapped him in lights and snapped away.

He looks so content to be holding onto the candy cane!

Josiah woke up with a smile on his face (thankfully) while we were leaning him up against Santa's bag. I don't know if I would have been as happy as him if it were me!

Shannon, Ashley, and Josiah ... thank you so much for everything! Merry Christmas and may God bless you in the new year!

Anderson Family Christmas Session

We had a great time shooting Eadie's second birthday party earlier this year.
So we headed out to Cheryl's parents' breathtakingly beautiful historic home for a fun shoot with the Anderson family.

I love her expression in this picture!

I think Eadie was fascinated by her reflection in this Christmas ornament. She is so adorable!

Thanks Dean, Cheryl, and Eadie! We hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
