Nathalie & Beau | Wedding at The Addison

My story with Nathalie goes back YEARS. I was actually her manager at a fun little casual restaurant called Chili's. We'd stayed in touch as Facebook friends, but I have to admit I was still a little surprised she wanted me to shoot her wedding - I mean, I was her boss! 

But since Nathalie and I left Chili's, she's gone on to bigger things, like finding the love of her life while on vacation in Puerto Rico. 

No really, she met Beau while on vacation with a bestie. Hello, GOALS. 

And now Nathalie and Beau live in Hawaii and decided to have their wedding back "home" at the Addison, Boca Raton. Minutes before the girls left the hotel for the Addison, the skies opened up and it POURED. They've been planning this day for almost a year, and now minutes before the ceremony, everything was soaked, down to the petals on the aisle. But here's the thing about Florida - if you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes. 

So we waited, and we were HASHTAG BLESSED with a beautiful ceremony between the banyan trees and Nathalie got the wedding of her dreams. Here's their wedding story:

A Birth Story | Baby Audrey

A Birth Story | Baby Audrey

Maternity, a birth story, family portraits, birthday parties, another maternity session... I've been through it all with the Cables over the last three years or so... And last month I got to witness the newest member of the Cable family take her first breath. Introducing baby Audrey: 

Shortly after 5 pm, not even fully dilated, Katie had the overwhelming feeling to push. In just a few seconds, Audrey was born. It all happened so quickly, and honestly its still a blur as I tend to "detach" a bit while shooting. As the nurses flew into the room and prepared, my only chance to document her entering this world was to hold my camera directly overhead. Audrey's tiny head was covered with a receiving blanket. To protect the privacy of my AMAZING client, Katie, and to spare my blog of images that shouldn't be displayed publicly, lets skip a few seconds to where Audrey was placed on mama's chest for the first time...

Congratulations Katie, Aaron, and L! Can't wait to document you all as a family of FOUR now!

I recently took a trip to Kentucky to visit family and celebrate my sweet nephew's first birthday party. While I was there, one of my mom's friends asked me to snap some photos of her family and mentioned their backyard would be a great spot. I have to admit, I wasn't sure what I'd find, but their lush backyard turned out to be the most beautiful backdrop for their session! I may have to rent it out for a few more sessions next time I'm up that way ;) Here are some of my favorites from hanging out with Kay and her family in Kentucky:

R & E | Denver Red Rocks Wedding

Oh Denver. I love love love you. Ever since first visiting my bestie in Denver last year, all I could think about was finding my very own Denver bride. And as luck would have it, said bestie knew of one, and I was on my way to Red Rocks for an intimate wedding with backyard reception.

If you put your ear to the screen, you can hear my uncontrollable giggles as we shot portraits in Red Rocks park.
