May's Best Faces

May has been a busy month ... a wedding, engagement sessions, family sessions, newborns, birthday pics - lots of great clients and great images coming across my computer screen. I've worked with past clients, and met new ones ... and have been reminded several times this month how lucky I am to be able to do what I love and meet such amazing people with amazing stories.
I Heart Faces is having the 'Best Face of May' contest this week to end the month ... so I shuffled through hundreds of pics and decided to go with this one from Angie and Zach's E-Session.  These two are getting married in the fall, and after doing their engagement pics, I cannot wait for their big day!  And a huge thank you to them for bearing with me as I had just had my wisdom teeth removed two days before we met up on the St. Mary's campus {where Angie just graduated from! :} I wasn't feeling the greatest and worried that we may have to reschedule ... but we got through it just fine and their pics turned out AMAZING! Love is written all over these two, just look for yourself ...

I Heart Baby Bumps {and Yellow!}

I Heart Faces is going with the Yellow theme this week.  I was surprised when going through all my images that I had quite a few that would be great entries ... but I decided on this one.  Katie first contacted me as a last minute bride and we were able to pull off a beach wedding in a matter of days.  Her and her husband also live a couple hours away, so probably not the most likely that we would stay in close contact ... but it has been completely the opposite :)  I have photographed their wedding, their maternity session, their newborn session, and now, just this week, I got to visit and photograph the whole crew for a family portrait {Nick has three other boys and baby Liam is now 3 months old!} They are such a beautiful couple ... and I consider myself lucky to be able to see their love and family grow :) They started out as clients, and have ended up as friends ... one of the reasons I do what I do.

April Showers brought May flowers!

I Heart Faces is having a {non}contest theme this week, May Flowers.  The ladies of I Heart Faces are busy with a workshop, so this is just a fun week to roam around the yard, walk around the neighborhood, take a stroll though the park ... wherever you decide to go, grab your camera and find some of the beauty popping up all around. We had plenty of April showers; I didn't have to go far - our yard is blooming with May beauty :)
This tree is right outside our front door.  It's beautiful this time of year, and welcomes you with such a lovely scent when it's in bloom ... wish it lasted longer.  Sometimes in the evening after the kids go to bed, I'll grab a drink and sit on the front steps, just admiring it's beauty and aroma.
Here are a few other signs around the yard that Spring has sprung ... little buds of hope as I like to call them :)

                                 You can check out some of the beauty caught by others here:
