It’s not typical that I get to do senior sessions, so it’s refreshing when I do! Shaelynn is this amazing girl, in her senior year of high school right now. She is so sweet and kind – I really enjoyed all my time talking with her over email and during her shoot. Shaelynn is also very talented, as you will see toward the end of her shoot. I know you are going to do incredible things, Shaelynn!
Coming to the blog soon… Canden and Manny’s Wedding!
You are going to want to come back and check out this wedding when it hits the blog! It was the perfect late summer Saturday to have a gorgeous backyard wedding. It was full of fun – games, good food, awesome decor, dancing, and more. The evening came to a close with s’mores and music around a fire. What could be better!?
You’ve seen this family on the blog many a time before… but never have you seen Baby T on the blog! He just joined us all in the world this summer and we are all so very happy that he is here! I loved getting to hang out with him, his parents and his big brother for this shoot. Their love of football came out here and there, and Baby T just went with all the ideas we had, no matter how silly. This is why babies can’t remember this time in their life – Baby T would have to remember the time he was dressed up like a football
Daniel and I went to middle school together. At that time, he was the guy that talked all the time and buzzed around you like an annoying little brother (except he’s technically older than me) with a heart of gold. He was so incredibly kind that it out-weighed the little-brother affect and you couldn’t help but be friends with him. We ended up going to high school together and we met Ashley – there were so many of us Ashley’s in our graduating class – and my goodness, this girl was just good as gold. Ashley is one of those warm souls who is so positive and nice and loving and you just can’t help but be her friend. Like boys do, Daniel grew up and Ashley saw him a different way. And while he maintains his youthful spirit, the kindness in his heart has just multiplied, and Ashley is still that bright, kind place in a room full of people. They are both in the business of helping people, in their own specific ways, but the fact that they grew up to help people does not surprise me. And then they went and created these three little people. It’s SURREAL to see little Daniel’s and Ashley’s running around. I loved every minute chatting with their boys, trying not to laugh over smile negotiations (similar to hostage negotiations – “I will hand over my smile and my cooperation IF AND ONLY IF you give me…”) and watching their latest addition giggle sweetly at her big brother’s antics. All and all, it was a lovely morning with the Pugh Family.
