Summer puppy love!

Summer love and puppy love, what could be a better combination! These two cuties are the newest addition to one of our families. They love playing with each other in the backyard, even tugging on each other! And once all worn out they love to relax on the porch. Watching these puppies grow up is quite an adventure and they are certainly not shy of the camera!

Last Minute Bliss

When one of our photographers got married last year, we were asked if we had time to shoot another wedding in the area two days before. So it was a huge week of weddings. Not only did we find out about this wedding last minute, the bride and groom put the whole thing together in a month! When the bride is from another country, and the visa gets accepted, you only have a short amount of time to pull everything together. So even though the bride had only one person come from China, the entire night was full of love and fun.  The bride even changed into a traditional Chinese dress for the reception. And I have to admit, in all the weddings I’ve attended and photographed, this was the first one where I started tearing up during the speeches.

Happy Father’s Day!

Across the nation today, we are picking up the phone, visiting, and writing emails to the most amazing men in our lives. So to all the gentlemen who have helped us tie our shoes, ride our bikes, learn to drive, and held our hands the whole time, we send you a heartfelt Thank You! Be sure to give your dad, your grandpa, your uncle, or any other male figure in your life a huge hug and lots of love!

Here is a collection of some of our favorite photos with fathers. It’s always sweet to see dads and grandfathers hold their little ones, or to see the love in the eyes of fathers at weddings.

We also wanted to include photos of us with our fathers. We love you both!

Newborn baby girl is a perfect little model!

We had the great joy of meeting and photographing this little angel! She was such a good sport being passed around the family members and had many outfit changes. She’s a great little model in the making! With bows and rings and other special props, her first photo shoot was a success!

Family Photos are always a joy!

This family of three enjoyed an updated portrait for this past holiday season. With bright reds and blues to add to their smiles, we really enjoyed a morning at the local park. With all the running, swinging and playground exploring, this little princess was plum worn out by the end of our photo adventure!
