Say hi to my new niece, Catherine! Baby Kate arrived September 17 & nailed her newborn photos. She's a natural.
If you follow my personal Instagram or Facebook, you may have seen a post from a few weeks ago announcing that my hubby & I are having our first baby in January! I realized I never announced it here, but better late than never!
As it turns out, my sister just had her second baby (of course I'm a few weeks behind in getting these photos published), so we took the opportunity in late August to take sister bump photos. I like how they turned out, despite the gloomy weather & misbehaving two-year-old. (Did we honestly expect anything different with terrible two's?!)
Shout out to my husband for taking our photos.
Stay tuned for Baby Kate's newborn photos!
Megan warned me a few weeks before the wedding. We're fulling expecting it to rain. It has rained on every major day of our lives as a couple. Graduations. Ring Day. It's going to rain. Well, Megan & Sean, it didn't rain. And it was a perfect wedding day. The girls were stunningin lacy & flowy BHLDN lavender dresses. The guys looked like James Bond in their classic tuxes. The flower girl could twirl like a champ. The ceremony was complete with an accidental slip of tongue which left everyone in tears of laughter. The dance floor was never empty. #bestdayever
In case you're wondering, bubbles & fog machine make your dance floor that much more epic, especially if you've got your favorite Chucks on.

I seriously have the best & most joyful clients. Megan & Brandon, & all of their family & friends, were smiles all day. That, coupled with beautiful florals, decor, & perfect weather, makes for the best day ever.
We had a bit of a wardrobe malfunction in that the wrong tie was delivered. This was probably the most identical non-identical tie that could have found its way into the bag, but of course, the rest of the guys wouldn't let him live it down even though it wasn't his fault.
As Megan was walking up to Brandon, she called out something simple like, "hey!" Brandon was already beaming with joy & excitement, but upon hearing her voice, he said, "Oh, I can tell you are already so beautiful." Cue tears.
This picture makes me so happy. Seriously. You can't look at it & not smile! Try.
As soon as we finished photos, a thunderstorm came which delayed the ceremony just a bit. I don't think anyone minded though. Just more time to hang out & relax!
