lauren + sam :: married (just a few)

lauren and sam got married last week. it was amazing. they were surrounded by their closest friends and family, sam’s dad officiated the ceremony and lauren made most of her dress. when i walked into the room, i fully understood lauren and sam — their wedding was totally them, totally about their marriage and totally inspiring. i just wanted to get a few images on the blog while i play catch up. congratulations, you two! hope you’re having a wonderful honeymoon. oxo

Karen Wilson - How beautiful!! Can’t wait to see the others…

megan kroeplin - You guys look amazing! Lauren, i am obssessed with your dress!

audrey whitesides - so gorgeous!!!!

new year, new life. grateful.

2012 is bringing many changes… a new home, new work environment, new clients, new husband (in march), new challenges, new opportunities, new life. last week two of my very best friends welcomed a new little life into this world, andrew. a newborn baby really puts things in perspective. i look back on 2011 and i see growth, learning, struggle, surprise and improvement – for that, i am very grateful. i am looking forward to 2012 as a year of new beginnings and big changes. here’s to 2012 and all of the newness it holds! oxo

Addison - Precious!

Casey - Congratulations!!

my parents have cute neighbors

i have so many other images that need posting, but i just had to get a few of these cute kids on here! my parents live across the street from this sweet little family of 4 (almost 5!) and i love going over there and snapping s few photos when they are out playing. my mom taught blake when he was in high school, so we’ve known these guys a long time. it’s so fun to see their family grow! oxo

Lydia Toon - These are soooo precious, Helen, but, of course, I may be a tad bit prejudiced since they are my grands! Thank you! You have such a good eye!

roy in the snow

a lot has happened in the last 24 hours – i officially moved into our house in midland, it snowed 5 inches, roy experienced his first of many days spent with me in my office and he turned two! hope everyone is staying warm. oxo


also, you should know the only reason roy is sitting nicely and looking up in this photo is because i’m holding that branch in one hand, my camera in the other.happy second birthday, leeroy!

Brooke Moore - Such cute photos!! Roy is amazing 🙂
