Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

I love my kids! Have I ever mentioned that? Well, just so you know, I just love my kids! Here is a little video that my brother took on Christmas morning. (please excuse the mess, it was Christmas) Anyway, my oldest daughter Tori started violin lessons this year, and decided to perform a Christmas concert with the first song she learned ("Twinkle Twinkle Little Star"). So Tori played the violin while Brian and Julianne sang the song. It was precious!! One of those moments that you just love being a mom! Be sure to watch to the end, cause they are so proud of themselves, it's hilarious!!!

Pigtail braids

So, on a whim I decided to put my hair in pigtail braids today. Not sure why, guess I wanted to feel like a kid, who knows!! LOL! So my oldest daughter wanted pics of me, she thought the braids were cool. She did a pretty good job!

For fun I thought I'd throw in a shot of Tori with her hair fixed the same way, this was summer 2005. She's going to hate that I pointed out our resemblance. But I couldn't help myself. hehehe

Tim and Amy's Post Wedding Shoot

This was probably some of the most fun I've ever had at a portrait session! It was great because the couple had been married the weekend before, so we were able to take our time and shoot as much as we wanted. We took off downtown, went for a carriage and trolly ride. We played around in the old fashioned phone booth, and photograrphed them fighting with their light sabers! (that was their idea, what fun!) And right as we were leaving, we ran into a guy on stilts who made them balloon hats that connected them! It was an amazing afternoon! So much so, that I'm now suggesting it to all of my clients! Anyway, I'm rambling, just thought I'd share!

I loved how throughout the day, so many people would start clapping for them! It was so sweet!

Another Fashion Show

Okay, this shows how far behind I am on blogging, I shot the RK Fashion Show at Disco, on December 9!

So, yeah, I want this dress!

Brett and Christen

I'm finally getting caught up on my blog.....again.....whew! Brett and Christen were married in St Lucia, so I wasn't able to attend their wedding. This is a few of my favs from the reception they had at the Magnolia Room in Memphis, TN. It was absolutely beautiful! What an amazing couple!!

We started off with some fun pics of them.....

I love the back of this dress! (I mean, I like it all, but the back was my favorite part....)

Beautiful family!

Loved this cake!

I just love this shot! The cousins all landed at the bar.....it'd be cool to get the follow up shot, 20 years from now, at one of their weddings.....

Daddy's girl!

Their first dance was to "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol....I just love that song!

Her 94 year old grandfather was on the dance floor like it was no big thang!!

Here he was dancing to "I'm too sexy" hehehehehe

Seeing couples who've been together for so long, and still in love, is one of my favorite parts of weddings! Christen and Brett were married on her parents 30th wedding anniversary! 30 years!!!!

And because of this, Christen dedicated her boquet to her mother instead of tossing it.....

Thank you Brett and Christen for allowing me to share such a beautiful day! It has been wonderful getting to know the two of you!
