A Journey

A Journey

Anyone who reads our blog knows, while we are good at blogging our weddings, we rarely post anything else. You can blame that on me, since Sarah is in charge of blogging the weddings and I, well, am obviously not a great blogger! I wanted to share a bit about my personal journey as the newborn part of our business. When we started out we photographed everything and everyone, everywhere! We learned a ton those first few years: about cameras, photography, running a business, and ourselves.

Naturally, I wanted newborn pictures of my 3rd baby and, with a little research, a whole new world opened up. I discovered studio style newborn photos, of peacefully sleeping angelic newborns instead of the pictures I had of my first two: red from crying, cross eyed in photos, laying in awkwardly posed angles.

Nick & Gosia {Wedding Day}

A couple years ago we were shooting a wedding and as we were leaving the reception, we heard someone yell out “You guys are awesome and we are going to hire you for our wedding!” Fast forward to right now, they are married and we were so privileged to be there helping celebrate their day!! These two are made for each other. They  have an awesome love story and a beautiful little boy. They got married on Nicks fathers farm and it was perfect. Backyard weddings are my favorite…hint hint to anyone planing a backyard wedding 🙂 They did such a great job planning and decorating, so much love poured into it. I had the hardest time trying to narrow down photos for the blog post, so get ready for a photo overload!! {Getting Ready} This photo makes me laugh, he did NOT want the boutineer on! 🙂 {Ceremony} {Portraits}...
