P E R S O N A L || Liam and Spring Break

TJ finished his Winter Quarter, Spring Break is underway, and Liam and I have been soaking up our time with the sunshine as often as we can! This is my final weekend before being slammed with 6 weddings over this month, and I tell you, though I’m thoroughly enjoying every minute with my beautiful family, I can’t wait to dive headfirst into these weddings! They are my second great passion! (Family is first you guys, duuuuuuh)

We love to share little moments with our family, and some of you have seen some of these on our personal pages, some on our business page, but here’s the whole collection from the last week for you to peruse. Momo makes several adorable appearances, and Liam’s eyes (which seemed green a few days ago, and are now more of a hazel color, causing mass confusion as to which eye color he’ll end up with) and thick lashes will be seen often. I can’t tell if his eyes, his toothy smile, his chubby cheeks, or his chubby little legs are my favorite. Probably all of them! ❤

A N I M A L || Bailey the Chiweenie

In case you wondered, I LOVE PUPPIES. Puppies, and owls, and mustaches, and coffee, and flowers, and photography, and people, and life, and my baby, and chocolate.

But I really, really love puppies.

Meet Bailey. She was rescued at 4 weeks old, and she couldn’t take care of herself at all. Squirmy, wiggly, happy-go-lucky Bailey found her Forever Home with the Leonard Family. Two sweet little girls, and an older Chiweenie named Molly took Bailey under their wing, and nurtured her into a roly-poly kibble-eating machine. Oh, my heart melted. MELTED.

Seriously. I want 10 of them–preferably potty-trained, and up to date on shots. BUT I WANT THEM ALL.

Enjoy this sweet look at Bailey, the two girls that spoil her rotten, and her mothering companion Molly, who puts up with waaaaay more ear chewing then I ever could.

Oh, and finally, TJ, (the other half of the brains and beauty of SFP) came back to where we were shooting, and met Bailey for the first time, and I’ll tell you something: He can say he doesn’t want any more dogs all he wants, the look on his face when teeny li’l Bailey bounced into his arms and beard, I knew then and there, he wouldn’t turn a new dog away. <.< *plots*

W E D D I N G ||Danielle & Jeff || Abracadoodle Kennels

By the time I got to Jeff’s Mom’s house (where she raises beautiful assorted -doodle dogs), I was already in love with everything about the property. People in Spangle waved as we drove by, shop owners leaned against their door frames, beaming out at the world as though they knew exactly where the train of cars that heralded a big country wedding were headed. Rolling yellow wheat fields slowly rose and fell as we watched a bright blue sky full of towering fluffy clouds match their pace. It was breathtaking.

Equally breathtaking is Danielle and Jeff’s love for each other. After Danielle nearly hyperventilated about being able to finally get into her dress, I watched as Jeff stood with shaking hands and shaky breath, listening to the sound of the swishy dress and gorgeous redhead finally coming towards him. I cried. It’s not new, I cry at every wedding, but having known Danielle for…well…quite a while…it made the experience so much more charged for me–for everyone.

I usually don’t say much about the venue, the vendors, etc., but this wedding blew me away. From the decorations, to the elaborate zombie cake that Jeff’s sister made, to the witty and hilarious DJ that had us all entertained the entire evening, to the gorgeous sunset that hit soft blue and purple clouds and Jeff and Danielle slowly swayed at their first dance, this wedding had me enraptured. It was beautiful. It was full of love and joy, and it reminded me that what I do is a gift to me–and I’m forever grateful.
