Rebecca and Ryan are so sweet and endearing. Annnnnddddd gorgeous, as you can see. They are so in love which made this shoot effortless because of their connection to one another. I cannot wait for their wedding!

Also, a big thank you to Sweet and Saucy, the adorable and delicious bakery, for allowing us to shoot a few photos in their shop!

“The days are long, but the years are short.” – Gretchen Rubin

That, folks, is parenting in a nutshell. Though there are days as a parent that seem impossibly long, every time your child’s birthday comes around you can’t believe another year has passed so quickly. And then comes that most mixed of all days – the day they leave home. When one part of you is bursting with pride at what you and they have accomplished and one part is fighting every urge to try and squeeze your adult child into a pair of footie jammies.

That is exactly where the Garris family was when we took these photos just days before their oldest son left for college. You can tell from these pictures how deeply connected they are to one another and it was such a pleasure to capture them right as they begin this new chapter in their family story. And thankfully, for all the parents missing their babies as they head off to college, Thanksgiving is only 78 days away.

She loves Elmo, playing with her hair, and her Mama. She points like nobody’s business and can’t get enough of Dr. Suess. She’s Addi, and, if you ask me, she’s pretty amazing.

I think she officially won my heart when she wiggled out of her mom’s arms as soon as she got outside because she just couldn’t wait to feel the grass between her fingers. Or maybe it was when she reached out for me to hold her and then cried when I put her down. Regardless, I think it’s fair to say that Addi has won the heart of most everyone she’s come into contact with, except for maybe her fellow passengers on the plane ride home from Hawaii last month. 😉 Addi’s parents look at her with such love in their eyes and they have created a fun, welcoming, and beautiful home in which Addi can grow.

Justin and Beth, thank you so much for inviting me into your home to document Addi as she turns one. She is so special, beautiful, and fun and I know she gets that from you two! I hope these photos capture Addi and the adorable person she is at this exact moment in time, because as all parents know, it just goes by so incredibly fast.

Here’s Addi a few days shy of her first birthday …

They told me his nickname is “Mad Max” but I didn’t see anything other than a sweet, precious, wonderful baby. Max is 3 months old and beyond words adorable. He is strong, giggly, and so incredibly loved by his Mom and Dad. Oh, and the family dog, Oliver. He loves Max too. He loves him so much his new favorite hangout is right under Max’s crib. Yep, Max is one loved little baby and it is easy to see why – as you’ll see in the photos below, he’s utter perfection.

Melissa and Jorge, thank you so much for inviting me into your gorgeous home to photograph your family. You guys are amazing and even in the few short hours I spent with you I could just feel the love radiating from your home. I look forward to staying in touch and watching sweet Max grow!
