3 years of all this bliss

I have a fantastic job. Did I ever tell any of you that?
To get to spend special days with people that cherish one another.
A fantastic job. New babies, weddings, reunions.
So today is no exception, for the 3rd year in a row, I have photographed
these two on there wedding anniversary.

Let me tell you its a joy.
To get to go out and play and laugh with people
who are over the moon in love
and call that work...
lucky me.

So here is a big fat preview for the Heddons...
thank you for letting me a part of your tradition.
I hope you two had the sweetest 3rd anniversary EVER.

little man Carson..

So last weekend I had the privlege to be flown to Dallas
 to meet this little man and photograph him.
He was sweet.
I am smitten.
And oh what a joy it is, to see two parents so over the moon filled with love for this baby.

Really precious.

I love seeing friends enter new phases of life. And parenthood is an absolute thrill  (uhmm.. ride).
This sweet mom, stood up with me at my wedding, over seven years ago as a bridesmaid.
So to be able to there with her now, was really a treat for me.

She is an amazing mom already. No doubt. And her hubby, is already nominated for some serious dad awards. He is a really kind man.

They are incredible, and have already fallen in to a sweet sweet rhythym.

wanna see?
