Graves-Persons Wedding

Sunday, June 28 was a day full of MUCH laughter and tears!

You know it is TRUE LOVE when the photographer can hardly focus through her own blubbering!

Maureen Graves and Ogden Persons joined as one on the grounds of the Debordieu Golf Club and it truly was a sweet time. With Maureen's three children and Ogden's daughter at their side, there wasn't a dry eye or a sore tummy in site! A dear friend of theirs delivered a very touching and comedic eulogy of their meeting, courtship and engagement while the preacher performed a beautiful ceremony.

Maureen and Odgen have such a stuningly strong bond and it was a wonderful experience for us to be part of their day.

Congratulations to you both!

Corey & Theresa

Corey and Theresa have been together since high school. You can totally tell that they are best friends! They were so cute and playful with each other, they love to have fun.  They were married on June 20th 2009 at the Crown Reef Resort, with a reception following at the Seaside Village Community Center.   Good Luck to Corey & Theresa! Always stay best friends and have fun together and you can overcome anything!  Thanks for letting us be a part of your beautiful and special day!

Anticipating The Next Addition to Our Family...

La La La...La La La... La La La La La La...

I remember SOOOO vividly the nights when my little brother Tommy would only let ME rock him before bedtime when a babysitter was watching us for the night.

We would both climb into (what seemed to be at the time) a GIGANTIC rocking chair in my brothers' room and he would sing to me! La la la...etc. etc. (I sing the same tune to my kids!)

And now, my "baby" brother and his beautiful wife, Sarah, are expecting their first little bundle themselves.

It is so sweet to see how attentive he is to his bring you closer together then you can ever imagine...I had to hold back the tears while shooting this session as flashes of a little 2-year-old, wide-eyed little toddler who followed me around EVERYWHERE now smiled at the perfectly round belly that encased his little girl.

I am SO blessed to have another little niece on the way and only hope that I get the chance to rock her and teach her the same tune that her daddy and I sang only a few...28...years ago!

Hang in there guys...she will be here before you know it! Enjoy the quiet time while it lasts and start warming up those vocal cords!

Love you!

Young Photography is "Expecting"...

In just a few weeks, we are going to have our own little model to photograph, as Sommer is going to deliver her second beautiful girl!

We are SO excited to get our hands on this already-loved little bundle of sweetness and I KNOW Sommer is ready to hold her too! :)

Sommer, Jay and Amia are counting the days until Ariana enters this world of ours, but until then, we wanted EVERYONE to see that we have been blessed to have the most BEAUTIFUL pregnant woman working at the studio! (And are even MORE blessed that she is our friend!)

We love you, Sommer! Hang in there for just a little bit longer! It will ALL be worth the wait!
