While I normally would take some time to round up my favorite photo moments of the year, I just need to spend that time getting as many snuggles and giggles as possible from my girl. It’s been an awesome year. In a lot of ways I can’t believe it’s already a new year, and on the other hand, so much has changed and last December 31 feels like a lifetime ago. A lot changes from year to year, naturally, and this has been one of the best as far as changes go. I am so happy being a mama and have fallen madly in love with my girl and photographing sweet baby faces.
I have high hopes for 2013 and will be kicking things into high gear. I have plenty of openings left, and am aiming to do a lot more portrait work this year, so if you are expecting a baby, looking to update your family photos or a headshot, you know where to find me! I can’t wait to hear from you!
And now I need to get back to this little face. Cheers and Happy New Year!
My dear friends…it’s been a while. I have been enjoying my maternity leave with our sweet little bean, soaking up all the snuggles and kisses I can while she is still tiny and wanting to be held all the time. I love being a mommy, and honestly, have really enjoyed this break. I spend my days in sweatpants and usually don’t shower until the day is half over. I have been watching entirely too much television and letting the laundry and dishes pile up. It’s wonderful. With that said, I am now easing back into the swing of things here. I am still taking it easy, though, and enjoying family time, since I’ll be back to work in January. I am looking forward to spending time up in Massachusetts with our families, and celebrating Lily’s first Christmas.
I have some catching up to do here, and I have some awesome faces to share with you. First up is Meg and Matt’s beautiful and emotional wedding. You may remember their engagement session from last October, where I found a soul mate in Meg. Their wedding day was one for the books. I will partially blame it on the pregnancy hormones at the time, but I found myself in tears more than a handful of times throughout the day. What I love about Meg is that she wears her heart on her sleeve. She doesn’t hold back her emotions, and that’s what makes her so warm, kind, loving, and beautiful. Seeing their happiness on their wedding day not only made me grateful to be able to capture it, but grateful to witness so much love between them, their families and friends. I am also embarrassed to admit that I am about 6 months late posting this (I said I have a lot of catching up to do here), but I know Meg won’t mind. She is awesome like that.
We started the day at Meg’s aunt and uncle’s house in Wallingford, CT. There were many, many special details and moments throughout the day that you will see here, which all focused in on love. Love for each other, for their parents, the love their friends have for them. There’s really no way for me to accurately describe it all except to just show you.
At this point in the ceremony, Meg and Matt turn towards the altar to light their unity candle, and Meg’s best friend surprised her with a song, One Hand One Heart from West Side Story…
These were taken last week at one week old. I can’t believe how much her face has changed since then! Time needs to slow down.
She is seriously delicious.
