Short Wedding at The Wood House

I recently had the joy of photographing the intimate wedding of Tucker and Jade at Rockport’s historic R.H. Wood House.

The bride’s family are Rockport natives, and they brought their Mexican flavor to throw the best fiesta the Wood House has ever seen. (click on images in grids to enlarge and scroll through)

Details for the bridal party were simple and gorgeous, with jewelry made by sister to the bride (and one of my bridesmaids!) A Rolling Stone Jewels

Kristy & Lila & the beach

Celebrating one year of motherhood, and more often then not, one year of breastfeeding, used to be about 80% of my business. But as I've grown with my clients, and they've stopped having babies and we've moved on to celebrating third and fourth and fifth birthdays, these sessions have become far less frequent than they used to.
And I didn't realized how much I missed these sessions until this mama contacted me about photographing her sweet little Lila's first trip to the beach.

From Kristy-
"Sweet Mae, 

Thank you so much for capturing our family perfectly! We prayed 7 years for this little girl and the love that we have for her and each other is too incredible for words. That love and adoration radiates on our faces through your pictures and I tear up every time I look through them! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! I will cherish these forever! "

Megan & Her Heart

I have photographed several military families over the last year, each one showcases a beautiful heart-aching love. Megan and her family were no exception, in fact, our time together will not be one I easily forget.

From Meg-

"I've been an Army wife for 13 years, 6 moves, and 4 deployments. We have 3 kids born in 3 different states. We've been separated through every kind of holiday, birthday, and life event from baby's first steps to childbirth. The times I miss my husband the most though? The times I bite my cheek and blink away tears?  It's when Jesus takes the chaos of the day and unexpectedly transforms it into something beautiful...the Tuesday night dinner where all the kids actually eat and we joke and tell stories and laugh...the sunset walk to the park when my daughter finally solved the mystery of how to swing all by her big girl self...the sleeping newborn giving gummy smiles at 11:30pm for no reason at all.

We are working through our 4th deployment right now and looking at these pictures brings me so much joy! Mae captures those subtle moments so beautifully! She sees the sandy toddler hands and wind-whipped curls and protective hugs and knows they have weight. These last family photos for the next 9 months mean so much to us! You are amazing!"
