I just can't put into words how special Allee is. I've known her most of her life. I've been photographing her family for years and the whole crew holds a very special place in my heart. And now, Allee is getting married tomorrow. (Sniff)
I hope I don't cry. I know myself. I'm going to cry. I cried at her sister's wedding. Sigh... I'm such a sap...
At any rate, I got to meet Evan this summer for their engagement session. I have to say, they're a good fit. I'm really looking forward to their wedding tomorrow and I am really hoping there's just enough snow to make things pretty and not so much that it causes any issues. I won't lie. Snow pictures are some of my favorites!! For whatever reason (cold), people aren't generally willing to get snow photos. Can't imagine why. ;) So, if you're reading this, throw up some good thoughts for them on their big day. Thanks for being here.
Since the new year is kind of its own before and after, I thought it would be a good time to share another before and after photo. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this one. My family was rather torn as to which way they liked the image better.
A while back, I went to a barn sale. It was a great location with a beautiful house and I had farm envy. I followed them on facebook thinking I was following an antique dealer. The owner, Jennilee, posted something about the farm at the same time I was looking for a place to have my holiday mini sessions. So, I took a chance. I introduced myself and asked if they'd consider renting the barn to a photographer. That conversation led to the realization that they were going to be a wedding venue and they would need photos. It was fate. We (very quickly) planned a photo shoot to help Jennilee launch her venue. We gathered some amazing vendors and a cutey patootey couple and spent a chilly but gorgeous, blue sky day at the farm.
Many MANY thanks to the amazing vendors who lent their incredible talents to this photo shoot:

I feel like I've been VERY spoiled this year. I have had some amazing seniors to photograph! Annabelle was no exception. On what may have been the windiest day all year, we went to Bridge Park. We worked the wind. We hid from the wind. That wind didn't stop us!
This girl!! I just adore her! She's creative. She's sweet. She's fun. Her fashion sense is amazing and I'm pretty grateful to have gotten to photograph her! Katie absolutely rocked her downtown session!
To be fair, I am biased. Her family is pretty darn special to ours. Her mom is a rock star. Her little sister is my daughter's best friend and her older brother was a dk senior a few years back. So.... We LOVE this family!! And Katie is so good at this photo thing!! She made my heart skip a beat with the pink skirt!! What do you think? Have a favorite photo?
