Armstrong Family

I love these guys more each and every year! And this year is extra special because baby Ellis joined the party! Oh how I adore this party of five!

Kimberly+David {Elopement}

Kimberly and David went ahead and did it! They ELOPED and surprised almost everybody! Love these guys and they made me think that eloping might be my thing! I mean, how do you beat making the most important things simple and going after your heart? And on a personal note, the day was terribly overcast, but looking at these photos, there’s so much life and COLOR…which is what Kimberly wanted! We even had rain at the end, but it didn’t matter. Kimberly and David managed to finish their first dance and we all sat and ate more cake under two umbrellas. I know these guys don’t know me well, but this day had my name written all over it! :) Proof that I had fun? I asked for a second slice of the wedding cake!!

Plungis {Family}

Congratulations to the Plungis Family! Baby Kylie is here and now they are the fabulous FOUR! I did a lifestyle shoot for them where I stopped over their house and took mostly candid photos. The added treat was that they had both grandmas and one great-grandma there too. It was quite a day! Love these guys so much. Appreciate clients that become dear and wonderful friends…
