Personal : Anniversary Session

Here it is! The images from the amazing husband + wife photography team of mi belle photography! I was so stinkin' excited to finally see Josh and Michelle again (and their new baby boy!) and be in front of the camera for a change.

We carried our wedding clothes from NC, to Colorado, to Cali and it was so nice to finally wear my wedding dress again :) We did the session at Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills. This is actually where the show Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman was filmed! Please, someone tell me you watched that show. It was gorgeous there and incredibly nice to go from less than 20 degrees here in NC to 75 degrees in southern California! Let me know what you think of the photos!




We can't wait to print this one for our wall :)




Isn't my hubby handsome? I just love him.



This is definitely one of the favorites for both of us. Jonathan usually hates photos of himself but he loves all of these... yay!











This is part of the western town where Dr. Quinn was filmed. Anyone recognize it?













We changed clothes for a few casual photos.

Family love. Westlake Village, California.

I meant to post about my own wedding on our first anniversary this past September but everything was crazy busy and it just never happened. I will tell you this though... it rained incredibly hard on our wedding day. Like, pouring rain. I have always dreamed of having my wedding outside on my parents property and so we did not move inside the church. We stayed outdoors under the reception tent for the entire wedding and it was amazing. But because of the rain, we only had a few "romantics" of us together on the wedding day. I have been dying to have more photos taken in my dress, with my husband, somewhere beautiful and sunny. So, when I contacted Josh & Michelle of mi belle photography (I interned with them during school) and they agreed to do a shoot with us, we packed up and headed to sunny California.

I'll be posting the photos from our Day After shoot with mibelle later but right now I'm going to show you some of the cutest kids ever. My cousins Karlee and Kerri both have beautiful children and I couldn't resist shooting a few portraits while we were there.

This is James. Doesn't that just make you say "aww" out loud?





James recently became a big brother to Juliet. He is so good with her!




Juliet was so attentive and happy during her few minutes in front of the camera!





My gorgeous cousin, Karlee, with her babies.


This is Kerri + Seth's boy, Carson.




Doesn't he have the most beautiful eyes?



Such a handsome little guy :)



This photo cracks me up. He couldn't resist trying to eat the dirt.





Next time I post, you'll be able to see our day after session in Paramount Ranch. Yay!
