~ bea’s three ~

Here are a few pics from Bea’s Birthday Brunch.

Somewhere in between present 3 and 6, Bea disappeared and Batgirl arrived complete with Bat-Cave and Bat-Phone.

As soon as everyone put on their bathing suits, Bea was back on the scene ready to play with Maggie on the dock.

Maggie made Bea a sign.  It says, “Welcome to Bea’s Birthday Brunch.  3 B’s, Bea’s 3″  Pretty clever kid.

Batgirl just did not want to miss a thing so she came back after cake.  Seems the balloons give her super powers or something cause she just could not get away from them.Love these two little girls with all my heart.  I hope one day you will know into the marrow of your bones how much joy, happiness and love you have brought into my life and how beautifully amazing I think you both are!

Connecticut Wedding at The Candlewood Inn ~ Mike and Allison

A Beautiful Brisk Day for a Wedding in Connecticut at the Candlewood Inn

Allison and Mike were married this past weekend at the Candlewood Inn.  It was a beautifully sunny day but somehow the wind wiped away any chance at being warm.  Kuddos to Allison and the girls for braving the cold so we could capture their beauty by the lake that means so much to Allison and her family.

Mike asked his father to be his best man ~ loved this moment just as the bride was coming down the aisle.

Hotel Sax Chicago Wedding I Danny + Caitlin

A Beautiful Day for a Wedding in Chicago I Hotel Sax and St. Alphonsus

 I just got back from the most AMAZING weekend in Chicago!  By “AMAZING” I mean: 60 degrees in Chicago in December, my whole family in town, a super fun bridal party, a spectacular band and my cousin Danny marrying the love of his life, Caitlin!

Without further adieux, here are a few of my favorite moments from my whirlwind trip to Chi-town.

Backyard Wedding I Jennie+Adam

Beautiful Connecticut Backyard Wedding I Danielson, Connecticut

Two weeks ago – on an absolutely gorgeous day in Danielson, Connecticut – Jennie and Adam were married on the grounds of Adam’s childhood home.  Adam and Jennie did a “first look” which gave them tons of time to walk around the property and enjoy each other before their guests arrived.


I couldn’t resist a little American Gothic tribute.

The ceremony was beautiful and they had a fantastic officiant who gave me free reign to go where I needed to go to create great shots.  I took him up on it and captured this moment over Adam’s shoulder.  Love it! 

The tents were surrounded by plants they rented from a nursery.  I never knew you could do that!  And their good friend made their wedding cake. It was to die for!

Thank you to Adam and Jennie for asking me to document your wedding day!  Adam, I also want to express my condolences on the passing of your grandfather.  Wishing you peace as you grieve this loss.
