I have been "gone" for far too long! Despite the fact that I haven't been blogging for a few weeks, I have been kept very busy in many different ways. Not only have my photography skills and knowledge been put to the test more than ever, but I've also been adjusting being back to college life. I am so behind on blogging and am trying to catch up soon, but for now it's one thing at a time.

First, we have the Brownlow Family: funny, entertaining, energetic, lovers of life, artistic, silly... these are just a few of the words I could find to describe this bunch. Their three children- Matthew, Emily and Izaiah were so much fun to take pictures of! Their mother (a local artist who is full of creativity) preferred that I take pictures of them simply having fun and being siblings in their own backyard. It couldn't have possibly been more relaxed and enjoyable! It was pouring when I first got to their house, but within a few minutes it cleared up and we had perfect lighting for over an hour!
Izaiah's feet...debatably my new favorite picture so far.
I think these photos capture the essence of little Izaiah's BIG personality! He was too funny!
Izaiah has an amazing adoption story on how he made his way into their family as a baby. His mom, Michelle is a writer and wrote about it in her blog-- read it and be blessed by it!

Thanks to the Brownlow's for being such a blast! :)

The Justi Family

I had a wonderful opportunity to take pictures for another beautiful and loving family with four kids- Stephanie, Melanie, Ryan and Kevin. We went to Poole Forge and had a great time getting some fun shots!

And in case you didn't know it already...
This little guy, Kevin, is too cute for words.

Karen only had one request, that we could get one of her and Chris kissing...
Why not somehow incorporate the kids too??

R&R Reception

Robyn & RJ had an incredibly beautiful reception in Robyn's parents' backyard. Stringed lights were hung from tree to tree that lit the night. The celebration included tons of dancing, good food, good friends, and more laughter than you can imagine.

Father/ daughter dance- BY FAR my favorite moment captured of the day.

Oh, and did I mention the dancing?

The dancing was so much fun that even Tim Kurtz couldn't sit it out. Yes, I know it's blurry, but this is the only proof I have that this actually happened... I won't mention what song it was. :)

A collage of some others too...

After growing up in a family with 4 sibilings of my own, I have an appreciation for big families. I had the wonderful opportunity of taking pictures of the Spahr Family just a few days ago. They have four beautiful children- Reagan, Mallory, CJ, and Piper (oldest to youngest). All of them are full of life and energy. We spent the latter part of the afternoon running around Warwick Park, letting them play and have fun so I could get some candid shots. Here are just a few... Enjoy!

Reagan- the oldest and a great big sister to her younger siblings

Sweet Mallory

Even with 3 sisters, CJ is ALL BOY.

How cute is Piper?

My favorite one- All six of the beautiful family!
Thank you so much to the Spahr Family for allowing me to do this! You all were great!
