Winston & Jennifer Get [Engaged]!

Jennifer was a bridesmaid at a wedding I photographed in Hickory almost 2 years ago.  After becoming Facebook friends we kept up with each other over time, and I about went ballistic when I saw that her boyfriend, Winston, had finally popped the question.  I think it was the next day, or at least that same week that I got a phone call from her asking if I would be her wedding photographer!  Not only was I happy for Jennifer, but I was ecstatic that she had kept me in mind for her and Winston.  I traveled up to Raleigh for their engagement session in early May, and we had the perfect day (and light!) to capture this super cute session.  Jennifer asked if we could incorporate the quilt her grandma had sewn together for her, and after seeing it I almost asked if I could pay her grandma to sew me one as well!  Enjoy!

Get [Personal]: Our Gender Reveal!

When Ryan and I found out we were pregnant my thoughts started flying about what we could do to find out what we were having.  The only logical choice in my head was to invite our closest friends and family to join us for a gender reveal party!  We decided to do purple and blue, because I despise wearing pink!  Knowing Ryan was going to want to wear blue I knew I would have to wear the other color.  After landing on a bird theme Stephanie, her sister Brittany and I spent 3-2 hour sessions cutting out birds to put up around the house, making banners and signs (love you guys!).  We’re so thankful for my parents for opening up their home, Karen from Lily Greenthumb for the florals, Sunny from Themba Imagery for taking the pictures and Amy from Wow Factor Cakes for our amazing bird themed cake! Enjoy the pics, and make sure you watch the video!!

Most embarrassing game EVER!
It’s a BOY!!!!
