Kyle + Erin Get Married
Just over a week ago, we were making our trek down from Boston to Florida. The whole goal was to make it to Tallahassee by 4:30 pm on Friday and wake up to photograph a wedding the next morning, and we did it. It was a team effort - my sister, Mom, and Grandma drove up from Clearwater to babysit Isaac and get Marin dressed, Mike’s parents were put in charge of getting Marin out of the ceremony as quickly as possible, Tom was the best man and wedding coordi...

The last week of our lives has been an all out what-were-we-thinking kinda week.

[Yes, I start my day job on Friday morning! Crazy!]. Part of that craziness was due to o...

I've known since I took these pictures that I was going to talk about communication for this post.

And to be honest, I'm not naturally the best communicator [at least with words, ha! I'm the person that when someone asks for directions, I have to draw a map.]. There are  little things, however, that I can ...

Rodney + Stephanie Engagement
Lately I've been thinking and reflecting a lot on life. How short it is, and how quickly days pass by without even paying attention to them. I mean, wasn't I in high school like yesterday? And when did college happen? It's kind of a blur, and part of me likes that, and part of me's sad that it's already behind me. I've been joking with friends that this summer I'm either going on a cruise, backpacking through Europe, going to midwife school in the P...
