Kaylin + Ryan : Mt Hebron & Lexington Country Club Wedding

Where do I begin!?!? This wedding was filled with so much excitement and anticipation, I could hardly bear it. Kaylin and Ryan, high school sweethearts, have been together a long time and eagerly awaited this incredibly special celebration. Their joy couldn’t be contained. It was an honor to photograph hours of joy and pure bliss.

This post is PART 1 of their amazing wedding… MORE TO COME!! (Thank you to Jessica Hunt Photography for second shooting and bringing some crucial shots to the table. You did a wonderful job!)

Kaylin BRIDAL: Statehouse Grounds

It is one of the hardest things for me to photograph a bridal session and then have to WAIT TO SHARE THEM!! Especially these!! Kaylin, you were & are so stunning and these portraits just make me beam. You have so much joy and I know you are in total bliss on your honeymoon right now! Your wedding day was gorgeous, and I can’t wait to share those soon. Until then….:)

HAPPY TWO!

Where do I begin? You are spirited, sweet and incredibly smart…oh, and stubborn. You know what though, sweetheart? All of those are good things. Our job is simply to teach you how to harness those gifts and use them to glorify Jesus. “Praise JESUS!” as you say. We can already see that you have the potential to do great things. You are determined and strong. You have a big heart. You are a people person and you easily love and remember others. Our world desperately needs more people like that. I pray that gift becomes deeply rooted in you.

You are a free spirit & a southern girl. You love to be outside, you love the sunshine, you love sand between your toes and you LOVE the sight of water. If I could pull over to the side of the road every time we saw a lake or a river or a PUDDLE…I would. You have become a great traveler and you’ve “picked up” friends and family in many different states in your short life. You love to touch everything, explore and discover new things… and tell me all about it. When I pick you up from school, you are able to tell me about your day. This astounds me! You can easily describe what you did, who you played with, what you ate… and you normally tell me you want to turn around and go back. What a social butterfly you are.

We had a blast celebrating your birthday. You woke up seeing balloons hanging from your door, you spent the day with friends, you ate lots of cake & bashfully opened presents. (You were a little overwhelmed I think). As we rocked later that night, you beautifully recounted your day…as if you were already dreaming about it all over again. I laid you in your bed and said “Night night sweet girl…love you most!” and you looked up at me and sighed and said “Happy birthday mama!”

Happy Birthday to YOU, PRINCESS!!

HOW YOU’VE GROWN IN THE LAST YEAR (Although you wore the SAME EXACT onesie for your birthday LAST YEAR!!!)

Some pictures from my phone this year…

Now for some videos from the past year!!:)
