Fata Family

15 Oct

Another perfect day for some sunny golden fall photos!  Us mamas used to visit before the kids were all in school, so I brought my two little assistants with me to get re-acquainted and they ended up leaving with a rainbow loom bracelet each! 😀 We’re hoping the school boards have a few more coinciding PA days.

Onto a peek of this cute family!

A super mom and her girls

12 Oct

This is Jennifer, one of my best friends from childhood.  We both had our first children in 2011 and hope that they will be good pals just like we were! Her oldest is very shy, as apparent in the pictures, and her youngest reminds me of my kids – pretty wacky and spirited.

Jenn is an incredible mom. So very intuitive to her children’s needs, working hard to give them everything she can.  I love this family, and love watching these girls grow up.

My clients are so fun sometimes!  I won’t forget this cool (warm) evening quadding through fields with this family!  Thanks for the fun!

Meghan & Benjamin’s Wedding – Preview

20 Aug

Meghan and Ben have quite a lengthy love story that stretches back to their youth, making today a big deal.  A much awaited union, after 9 years of dating, college, getting a dream home, two children, they finally tied the knot.

Now I know Ben is a wonderful guy from what Meghan has said, not to mention the best man’s touching speech.. but I have lots of firsthand experience at how lovely Mrs. Meghan is.  We went through the SSW program at Con College together.  She’s a shining diamond.  A loving mother, caring friend, and kind soul.  Knowing how sweet she is makes me all the more happy to see how happy she is.

Now, join me in screaming over these shots from their wedding

Julie & Spencer – sneak peek

10 Aug

My second destination wedding – and I can call this a destination wedding, right?  Lutsen may only be two hours away, and the landscape is pretty much the same as home, but the resort is just so beautiful it feels like you’re away somewhere special.

There is lots to say about this awesome couple and their incredible wedding.

Like, 1. they are really fun and nice, and put on an awesome party.
2. They each have a large group of friends that adore them.
3. They are really loving parents! Julie kept saying: gee this would’ve been a lot easier if we did the wedding BEFORE kids! But half the bridesmaids had infants there anyway so it was a total baby party with a fun vibe.

The wedding itself was so cool – Lutsen Resort has an amazing layout for a beautiful outdoor wedding.  Grassy area for the ceremony, covered deck for cocktail hour, view of the expansive lake.

Highlights of the day include:

So many tiny babies
The “first look”
Curly blonde toddler stealing the show (multiple times)
The most insane storm and downpour
Double rainbow
Ending the night with a bonfire, first time s’mores
