I can’t believe how much Emery Cate has grown! She’s getting so big. Even harder to believe is how much Nolan has grown. Her baby is starting disappear and her little girl face is starting to really shine. It’s been such a joy to be documenting this family since Nolan was a newborn and I look forward to many more years to come. We had a beautiful day in February (wow we got lucky!) and the park was super crowded, but we made a little magic anyway!

When I met with Lyndsi + Payton to discuss their photography options, I knew instantly that they were a match made in heaven. Quite literally. Through everything that these two do, their faith shines through, leading their lives and their love.
We had the pleasure of shooting at the gorgeous Le Beaux Chateau in Flower Mound, TX. Finding beautiful spots to shoot here was certainly not a challenge! Even the bridal suite is amazing… Even though I had a tough time calling it a “bridal suite” because Lyndsi was not a bride; she was a future wife from the beginning.
Seeing a wife-to-be get to put on her wedding dress brought tears to my eyes… she is genuine in every way possible.
Lyndsi’s bouquet was wrapped with photo charms… so her grandparents were able to walk with her down the aisle.
And then they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day. Payton adores Lyndsi… can you tell?
The boys hung out and made music while waiting for guests to arrive. They were a really fun group…
Life just wouldn’t be as fun without flower girls. Lyndsi’s nieces took the job very seriously… and the youngest was efficient, too!
EVERYONE danced. This bunch was all about celebration of life and love.
And then a beautiful bubbled-filled send-off!
Lyndsi + Payton’s wedding was beyond joyous… I can’t wait to see how these two change the world! Want to see their full set of images? Please register on their online proofing gallery and when the couple releases them, you will be notified! http://pictage.com/1394717
I’d been eagerly anticipating the call to attend this birth. I woke up on Friday morning, and knowing I had a little drive for a personal errand an hour and half away, I had a gut feeling I should check with Chani before I left, just to be sure. She texted back that she was fine and the doctor anticipated inducing by her due date a week from Friday if she didn’t go into labor before. She seemed to think she was light years away from having this baby. So, I went on my errand and had a lovely Friday afternoon, but couldn’t shake the feeling that birth was imminent. My phone bleeped loudly at 4:38 am on Saturday morning. It was Eric. Chani had been laboring since 2:30 an they were going to head to the hospital. I LOVE the sound of an excited Dad making this call. It always make me smile.
I kept in touch with the all morning. She arrived to the hospital not too far along, as is typical for first time moms. Eric told me they had a bit and would wait to have me come. I checked in with him about every two hours. They walked and did what they could to get labor started. Eventually, the doctor decided to augment labor a bit to get things moving and broke Chani’s water. I knew I had a couple hours, but not nearly as long as they thought. I told Eric, “oh I’ve seen moms go from a 5-10 in 2 hours!” Thank goodness I left when I did at 2pm, because it took me a shocking two hours to drive to Plano from Keller because of wretched construction in Grapevine. I arrived at about 4pm. Eric tried to send me to the mall thinking they still had lots of time and Chani was going to rest. I told him, I wasn’t leaving the hospital, but I would go make myself scarce so she could nap. Right as I was walking out the nurse came to do a check, so I waited with Eric’s mom outside the door to see what the status was. Yep! She was a 9.5cm and it wouldn’t be long. So much for that nap!
