Jennifer’s 16th Birthday

When you meet a young lady who truly has an inner beauty as bright and vibrant and her outer beauty, you wonder what sort of circumstances could have contributed to such a perfect mix. And then, you meet Jennifer’s family and friends and you know.

I had the privilege of photographing Jennifer’s Sweet Sixteen party on Friday and the best part wasn’t the dress or the cake or the party, it was seeing all the people in her life come together to celebrate her in a way which highlighted what a sweet, intelligent, and caring young lady she is. When you get to be part of something so genuine, it moves you. And it moved me.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from the evening…

70th Birthday Party

Last weekend, I had the privilege of photographing a surprise birthday celebration for a wonderfully loved man. His fabulous group of family and friends showed such a refreshing outpouring of love. This family was too sweet and it is obvious what a blessing they have been to those who know them best.

These are a few of my favorites from the evening.

Baby Paislee’s Shower

Welcoming a new baby into the world is always exciting and this grandmother made sure that Baby Paislee did it in style! This group was so much fun and the laughter from the games – I’m sure – could be heard from miles away!

This loving family can’t wait to meet Baby Paislee!
