Allen and Stephanie: Engaged!

Loved my time with these two! ๐Ÿ™‚ Allen and I have known each other for years from working together at Camp Allen. I was SO honored when he called me about shooting his wedding, though I’m still in disbelief over the fact that Allen is old enough to get married! ๐Ÿ™‚ I guess we’re all getting older . . . . sigh. ๐Ÿ™‚

Allen and Stephanie are adorable and I can’t wait to shoot their wedding! Here are a few favorite pictures from their engagement session . . .

Bonk! Ouch. ๐Ÿ™‚ These shots would normally be outtakes, but I LOVE them, so I had to hold on to ’em!

My favorite x 1 million . . .

Quin at 3 months old!

I can hardly believe it’s been three months.

When I think about the early days of Quin’s life . . . what a huge adjustment it was to have a new baby and to get NO sleep . . . it seems like MUCH longer than three months. But when I think about the last couple of months and how quickly the days with my sweet angel just fly by, it seems like just yesterday that I first saw his beautiful face.

It’s official, world: I am in love with this guy.

Quin is an absolute delight and I love being his mother! Each day he gets sweeter, funnier, stronger, and smarter and it’s an absolute miracle to witness! Motherhood is so much greater than I ever expected and Quin is a greater blessing than I ever though possible.

Fun things Quin is doing these days:
1 ) Smiling CONSTANTLY. ๐Ÿ™‚
2 ) Cooing and oohing and ahhing and screeching – all day long!
3 ) Rolling over – okay, only once (today – hooray!) – for the first time.
4 ) Picking up toys and moving them from one hand to the other.
5 ) Showing a major preference for the outdoors . . . he loves put his bare hands and feet in the grass.
6 ) Responding to our faces and voices.
7 ) Putting everything in his mouth and drooling like crazy! Those teeth – they are ‘a comin’!
8 ) Sleeping really well at night – yippee!!

I’m trying to commit to doing a portrait session each month of Quin’s first year because I know how quickly he’s going to grow and I don’t want to forget a thing! Here are a few of my favorite pictures from Quin’s 3 Month portrait session . . .

This is where the session took a bad turn. Q decided he was officially DONE with me and wanted me to know it. He also looks like an old lady that just got back from the hair salon. God, I love him!

Quin’s Nana made him this GORGEOUS blanket, so I thought it would be fun to get a few pictures of the squishy monkey all wrapped up in it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Steven and Amanda’s Engagement Portraits

Yay for engagement portrait season being back! ๐Ÿ™‚

I LOVE shooting engagement sessions and I always miss it during winter or summer because nobody (including me!) wants to do them when it’s 105 or 25 degrees outside! Doing engagement sessions also gets me pumped about all the adorable couples I’ll be shooting in the coming year and Steven and Amanda are no exception! I enjoyed my time with them and just loved watching the two of them crack each other up. All these smiles and giggles are genuine!
