Summer Family Photos

Happiest Friday, babes!!!  First, I wanted to extend the most heartfelt thank you for your sweet words & support after my post earlier this week.  Some of the comments I received honestly brought tears to my eyes.  Watching the news and hearing horrible stories all of the time can make you a little scared for your babes to grow up in such a place, but it's moments like those (when you feel so much love!) that remind you that there is SO much good.  I am forever grateful for your positive support, it means so much to me and to our family.  Thank you, thank you, thank you! :)

I'm also super excited to finally share some of my favorite images from a family photo shoot we did about a month ago, these pictures are so special to me and I will treasure them forever.  My husband and I were married at my great aunt and uncle's home five years ago, it is truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been and it's still so magical to me that we actually got to have our day there.  Sadly, my great uncle passed away earlier this year and my great aunt has decided to sell the house, but was so gracious to allow us to take some pictures there as a family of four before it's on the market.  She is the sweetest lady and their marriage was absolutely an inspiration to us, we are forever thankful to them both.

 My friend Shawna absolutely killed it with these photos, there are so many more and I had the hardest time narrowing it down!  We got some in the backyard where our reception was, the side of the house where we took our engagement photos, the dock where we had our first look, the garden path where I walked down the aisle, and finally, the steps, where we actually got married!!!!!  It's just so crazy to think that's where we were five years ago saying our vows, and now we get to stand there with our two beautiful girls.  We had big dreams when we started our life together that day, this surpasses any of them.


If you live in the VB area, you must check out Shawna's website!!!  She is amazing and just the sweetest person to work with.

Wishing you the happiest weekend!
