Lindsay and Dustin's Wedding Reception

All winter I have really been anticipating the beginning of wedding season. I have been emailing and coordinating with about a dozen brides and grooms and at last these amazing days are here and happening!

I made a comment recently that it can feel weird attending the weddings of people I don't really know. I'm standing next to them, documenting an incredibly memorable day, and I'm pretty much a stranger to them compared to everyone else in the room. A friend replied that it may seem weird, but I get to spend time with these people on one of the happiest days of their lives. Really, what can be a better job than that?

Lindsay and Dustin had their wedding ceremony in Florida prior to coming back to Omaha for a reception, so technically I didn't spend the happiest day of their lives with them. :) Their wedding photos looked so amazing. Beaches, sun, tropical scenery. The day of their reception was warm(ish) but windy. Oh. So. Windy. They did an amazing job though of bringing the tropical vibe back to the reception with them. It was color, flowers, color, flowers, color, color, color. I thought it was all so beautiful!

Delila and Jameson

These two kiddos are Delila and Jameson. We did a shoot for her newborn pictures and his two year pictures. Mom and dad are going to have a handful with two birthdays so close together! How much fun is that though?

I'm never sure whether the baby smiles I catch are genuine smiles or just a lucky shot of a baby making a face. I prefer to think of them as real smiles. Because it's cuter that way. :)

Addison's 3 Month Photos

Geeeeeez! That break seemed like an eternity! I can't believe it's been over a month since I last posted a session. I (along with everyone else in the Midwest) am utterly joyful for this winter to be O-V-E-R. Now, everything just needs to hurry up and turn green.

I recently went back for Addison's three month photos. How this kids grow. I tell ya. When I walked in, Addison smiled at me and was in a generally cheerful baby mood. Then the camera came out. Cheerful turned into sleepy and if there's anything babies are experts at it's sleeping when you want them to not be sleeping. We carried on regardless. She's just as cute sleeping as she is awake, so all-in-all she still did a good job.
