stephanie and james asked me to go to the hospital then to their house a week later for traditional newborn (lifestyle) pictures. what an awesome combo…i wish i had done this with my babies! i loved being there to capture the excitement in the hospital as brynn was brand new!Untitled-1

it is so much fun meeting new clients! the raneys were incredibly sweet from the start. from the meeting to the session and after i was a HUGE raney family fan and that’s why i am feeling very lucky to get to work with them again several more times in the next year. thank you again for allowing me the privilege to document this time in your lives. and thank you for being so awesome!

sean + shannon. san antonio wedding

wow…what a whirlwind! i was working alone on this wedding and it was a three day affair. it all went by so quick.

this wedding was a blast. this is a FUN group right here. i had already had the privilege of working with sean and shannon a few times before their wedding and loved them already so i felt very comfortable with them. they are truly the sweetest. their guests were also sweet (and did i mention, fun?!). they all treated me like i was a guest at the wedding and not the hired help ha. i got to know everyone so well over the three days and really enjoyed myself. we were at an amazing resort style hotel in san antonio that just made it feel like a vacation even though i was working.

sean and shannon – i am so happy for you guys. you two sparkle when you are with each other! i know you have had some excitement recently – a new house, a 30th birthday, a first birthday. i love keeping up with your lives and genuinely care about you guys. thank you so much for having me a part of your BIG day!

now without further ado here are some pictures! now mind you, i had thousands to look back through when blogging which was quite overwhelming so i went ahead and kind of picked the ones i put here by “enny meeny miny mo!” hope you like the ones i picked and that they make you feel like you are re-living the day all over again!

let’s start right with the main event then work backwards. the ceremony! we thought it might get rained out and moved inside but shannon and sean stayed cool as cucumbers about it anyway. it was dark outside but the prayers worked and it was actually nice and cool outside! a perfect surprise to the warm weather we were having earlier in the day! everything went down perfectly!

getting ready.

that day everyone had lots of fun by the pool and lazy river.
