Wintery Valentine’s Day Shoot

Wintery Valentine's Day Shoot

This session was just TOO fun to not revisit again this year. The floral crown ALONE is worth two, three, TEN features! Stephanie of The Blue Daisy Floral hit the ball out of the park with that creation! Hannah Conard Beauty did a number on the hair and makeup and my models for the day were beyond amazing!

It is freezing this weekend, almost as cold as it was on this day! Thankfully they had each other to keep warm. I LOVE the red dress against the snow. Just everything fell together perfectly and it is still one of my favorite sessions! Hope you enjoy seeing these again as much as I do! Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with those that you love today and stay warm!!

It is probably not even possible that you did not see these photos yet! Let’s face it, they blew up the internet last week! The Perfect Palette featured them last Friday and Strictly Weddings featured it on their Facebook page, bringing in a mere 56,000 likes!! What?! That may be the biggest thing of my career so far and all over a shoot that has been swimming in my head for over a year and that I put together with a couple of super talented local wedding vendors in under a week!

Who wouldn’t be impressed by a red dress, on a beautiful girl, on a snow covered path with an amazing floral crown?! It was seriously the stuff that fairy tales are made of! So excited to share these photos with you on my blog and to see more head over to The Perfect Palette. Blown away by the response!

Thank you to:

The AMAZING Hannah Conard Beauty

The grace and elegance of this little girl is just so beyond her years! How often do you have a session with a 1.5 year old that can pose for the camera?! Blown away by her cuteness!


Stephanie + Jonathan = True Romance Session

Stephanie + Jonathan = True Romance Session

Stephanie & Jonathan trusted me enough to book me for their special day without meeting me in person, so their engagement session was also our first time getting to know each other even better than through the emails we have been exchanging.  When first meeting them it is obvious what a beautiful couple the two of them are, but it does not take long to absolutely just be in awe of their inner beauty and the beauty of the love that they have for one another.

Stephanie’s dream was to have snow for her engagement photos, but with this unpredictable winter and my schedule, we had to put something on the calendar not knowing what cards the weather would be dealing that day.  We planned to meet at Hartwood Acres so that we could utilize indoors as well as outdoors in the chance that we were just going to have a dreary, snow-less, winter background (not that I don’t love working those days either!)  As I headed out that day I drove through an incredible snow squall and I thought for sure that Stephanie was going to get her wish, but upon arriving at Hartwood was greeted with blue skies and not a flake of snow in the air.  Just as we were ready to start shooting in the mansion I noticed a couple of snowflakes outdoors and suggested that we grab a couple of shots just in case it came and went as quick as the last storm.  Boy was I wrong!!  We were able to create some intimate portraits in the Grand Hall and staircases indoors where it was nice and toasty before we stepped out in what soon became a full out blizzard!

Hartwood Acres is beautiful anytime of year for photo sessions, but add a couple so much in love and some huge snowflakes and the place is magical.  We grabbed some photos around the mansion before heading down to the barn since both Stephanie and Jonathan have a love for horses.  They were so natural together and didn’t need direction to enjoy each other!  They were so fun to shoot and I am thrilled with the results from our winter wonderland session.  Cannot wait to see what these two bring to their May wedding.  I know the day will be full of love and I am so thrilled to be a part of it!

And of course…a slideshow!
