Sweet Sibling Love

It’s always nice to see when siblings get along, especially on picture day! These two enjoyed walking around the Marietta Square and selecting their own locations to shoot their portraits. Letting them choose their own spots really helped the kids come out of their shell and we were able to see their personalities shine through. They really enjoyed walking on the train tracks and playing in the leaves. We loved spending the afternoon with them and look forward to doing it again in the future!

What a Way to End the Year!

We had the opportunity to photograph a wedding at the end of the year for one of our friends from church. We always see it as an honor when a friend wants us to be a part of their special day. It was a small ceremony where the attendants were the bride’s sister, and the groom’s sons. The love we witnessed that day was evident everywhere we looked. At least we live here in the south so when we went outside to take pictures, it wasn’t too cold. The bride even had a lovely fur shawl to keep her warm.

Everyone loves their picture taken!

When most people think of portraits they think of baby or children photos. Well, we were quite delighted when we were asked to take photos of this elderly lady! We were informed she wanted photos for Christmas cards and gifts and she had just bought new clothes for her birthday. We were sure to get all the outfit combos as well as captured her sweet personality. Since then, we’ve loved hearing how much her children enjoyed their Christmas photos from their dear mom!

Happy Anniversary Samantha and Tommy

This is a wonderful week! On Thursday, my husband and I will celebrate our 5th anniversary! It will also be the 10th anniversary since our first date. Wow, how the time flies. Meredith recently shot some portraits of us at the Marietta Square. She was also one of our photographers at our wedding. We really enjoy having our friend photograph us because she knows how to bring out our real smiles. The first photo you’ll see below is from our wedding day in 2008. The rest are from the square. We took some photos dressed up, and some in casual clothes. We even did a fun Kamehameha picture for Tommy.
