Oh my heart. And these sweet voices! What a gift to be invited to welcome this sweet soul to this beautiful family. Even better, is having the experience of knowing this family from the VERY START! I filmed Mike and Crystal’s wedding years ago, then sweet Savannah’s first year, as well as John! To say I was THRILLED when Crystal contacted me to make a little film of welcoming Luke to his new family is an understatement. What I wouldn’t give to have something like this of my babies when they were little. With me in it!! There is just something about the movement, and the voices of both the little ones and Mom and Dad that is just priceless. Even the bit of chaos and busyness of the kids is beautiful. This family also got about 15 images from this short little shoot. Thank you Mike and Crystal for having me back!!!!
Erin and Tim had the most beautiful day full of celebration from so many family and friends. You will get a little peek into a super sweet first look and some of the sweet words from their letters to each other in this charming sneak peek video. You will have to wait to see the beautiful day they had and the best dancing priest I think I have ever had the privilege of getting to see! congratulations Erin and Tim!

There is something about seeing a family in motion – hearing them interact together and listening to their voices. It is just like stopping time.
These are two very special families and I love every squeal and giggle, even every cry. You might recognize my talented photographer friend Adrienne, we have shot many beautiful weddings together. And of course one of my most favorite brides and grooms and their sweet little man have made many an appearance on my blog over the years. 🙂

Can’t wait to see so many of you that come back every year! Feel free to share with your friends – and know that these sell out FAST – no adding on dates either as I am always ready to see the Ducks leave my tiny downstairs bathroom after only a few days. LOL.
This has become quite the annual event for us – Spring Ducks and Babies! I think this might be our 5th year doing these mini-sessions and we have SO MANY families who come back! I honestly think out of the 13 families I saw over the weekend, there was only one new one! This is the reason I do them year after year. Yes, the ducks are cute, but getting to see former bridal clients bring their babies in and special portrait clients come in year after year is really amazing. The ducks will go to their permanent home tomorrow, a friend with some land and a pond not too far away. We spent the evening playing with them at my house today – my kids will miss them and their ducky adventures. I am mostly happy to get my downstairs bathroom back!
Here are a few peeks into the fun that was had over the weekend! You can see more on our Facebook page!
