This is a special shoot!! It’s near and dear to my heart because you’re about to meet my Brother-in-law’s baby sister and her fiance’!!! When Joe and Emy (my sister) got engaged back in 2013, one of my favorite memories was traveling through the night and surprising Emy the next morning at Joe’s parents house! This was when I really got to meet so much of his family and of course, we loved them. Joe is one of six kids in the Malizia family and the baby of the family is Samantha!
Samantha (or “Manta” as Micah calls her), is so full of life and joy. You’ll be able to instantly see what I’m talking about as you begin to scroll through their images! Evan’s smile is equally amazing and so that makes them so much fun to photograph! We headed out to Llyod family farm a few days ago for their shoot and I have to say…. these two are CHAMPS. It was FREEZING and yet you can’t tell at all! The temperature dropped drastically and the wind kept picking up but that couldn’t stop us from having the most amazing time together! We did their shoot at Lloyd Family Farms and if I could have felt my fingertips, I could have spent hours upon hours photographing these two in such a perfect “fall” setting!
Evan and Samantha are something special. They have been together for years and years and truly embody the idea that you need to be best friends with who you marry! They laugh, joke, crack each other up and yet they can be so in-tune with what’s going on in the serious part of one another’s life at the same time. That is such a special quality in a relationship and they have it! I can’t wait to see them get married and begin a whole new chapter of their life. It’s obvious that God has a really awesome story to write in their lives together and it’s an honor to get to capture the very beginning of it!!!
I know I’m biased because technically, we’re related (through marriage)…. but I REALLY love these images and it’s one of my favorite engagement sessions of the year!!! Enjoy my favorites and get excited for their wedding in 2020!!!!
This light! A favorite for sure! I may or may not have made my sister stir up dust in the car for this one!!!
Here it is! Post one of twelve! I’m committing, once again, to blogging my favorite images each month of Everett’s first year and I’m excited about it because I know from past experience that this is truly the BEST motivation and accountability to stay on top of family editing!!
It’s hard to believe I’m writing this… my fourth birth story in four years. I’ve given birth in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Just typing that makes me tired….. and so grateful…. unbelievably grateful. These last four years have been the best and hardest of my life. We cherish being parents and welcoming a new baby is hands down the most incredible thing we have ever experienced in our 18 years together. I’m so excited to introduce you to our newest member of our family and tell you the story of how he came into this world!
Whether you’re brand new to business or have been in business for quite a while, this brand new Youtube video is for you! Michael and I, early on in our business, struggled to relinquish tasks to other professionals outside of our business. Really…. It was more of MY STRUGGLE than his.
Welcome to December’s Student Spotlight!! It’s a new month and we have new photographers to celebrate!! I’m so thankful for them and for their willingness to give of their time and share their stories!!!
This shoot was supposed to happen about a month earlier on the exact day that leftover rains from a hurricane swept through Washington. I’m so thankful we rescheduled! Our reschedule date was absolute perfection! The temperature, the glow, the locations…. it was beautiful! Tyler and Abby’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were full of color and still hanging on the trees.
When Michael and I were in our early years of dating, I would go on trips with his family for Thanksgiving and summer trips to West Virginia and I spent time with his cousins! “Bri-Bri” was so little! He’s the youngest of all of the cousins and it’s crazy to think that he’s old enough to be getting MARRIED! He’s actually older than we were when we got married!! We have known Shannon for years and we were THRILLED when we heard that Brian had proposed because we always hoped that would happen!!!
