Well, my dear friend Christy made another perfect baby boy and I had so much fun squishing and squeezing him and kissing him and smelling his sweet baby smell. He is, in fact, the smiliest baby on the planet and smiled about 74 times during our session. I could literally eat him. Some photographic evidence of his adorableness…
i made my first little video last night! i’m a total amateur but it was so much fun. i have been so drawn to motion lately and how much it adds to a story, and i want to try to capture more of our life this way. here is us last night, decorating the tree…
& my sweet baby vaughn turned 8 months old and helped us decorate his first christmas tree!
i hope you’re all enjoying the flurry of the holidays and all the special time with your families. best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season! xo.
madison and lionel’s wedding was so much fun! they held their ceremony at holy trinity catholic church and then had the reception in charlottesville at veritas vineyard + winery. it was a full day of excitement and love. madison and lionel have a special kind of love. it’s easy to see and it’s such a beautiful thing. they were friends first and i always feel like you can spot a love story that goes that way — there is a comfort and a familiarity within all their interactions, it’s so sweet. there isn’t a question in my mind that you two will live a long life that holds lots of adventure, laughter, and an incredible amount of love. cheers to you!

photographing these sweet souls is basically a dream. i was smiling my way through editing their photos and just filled with happiness for them. their joy and love for each other and for sweet sadie is contagious. you may remember sara and nick from their ridiculously cute maternity session in old town alexandria. sara and i had babies super close together, so i was soooo excited to meet sadie as a six month old — one of my very favorite ages. the sweetness between these three is off the charts, so excuse me while i blog one million photos… you guys are the best!
the last photo was actually the very last frame we took, and i just had to share at least one of the rolls and pearls. i meannnnn SERIOUSLY. i want to eat her! so much love and happiness for you guys. xo!
carter is the newest member of the family and i couldn’t be more in love with him already. we snuck sarah’s maternity photos in just in time before he arrived (literally by a couple of days) and then i got to take a few photos and snuggle him a bit once he made his entrance. he is the sweetest, calmest, snuggliest litle babe. i can’t wait for him and vaughn to be best buds! i got to wear him in the moby wrap for a minute and he fell asleep on me… seriously… heaven. welcome, little man! i love you guys so much! xo.
some of my most very favorite people in the world right here. spending time with them is effortless and always so much fun. i have an incredible amount of love and respect for each of them and i always leave their house feeling so full, if that makes sense. heart, mind, spirit. these special people really live and love and find joy in every moment of every day and i am proud to call them friends. i love you guys! xo.
PS: kristen is an incredible photographer and has captured countless special moments in our lives. it’s an honor to be able to pull her out from behind the camera and savor some moments of her in her element — as a really inspiring mom and wife. you’re a gem, my friend.
