This sweet family is welcoming a baby boy in a few weeks! Catrina, Paul and big sister Ellie, can’t wait to meet their newest little family member, JD! We met up at Philippe Park for their maternity session and they did so great!! Ellie was so well-behaved and did great in front of the camera. Catrina is a glowing, beautiful mama and Paul is a proud Dad! Check the blog in July for newborn photos of JD after he makes his arrival! Can’t wait!
Kara and Nick got married on Sunday at the coolest venue ever – the Orlando Science Center! They held their ceremony in the Our Planet room with a huge globe as their backdrop. After they said “I Do”, we went outside on the Suntrust Terrace for portraits and then headed inside to the Dino Digs room for the reception. Dinosaurs everywhere! Kara and Nick chose their venue specifically for the dinosaurs. Such a unique and fun space! Puff N Stuff catering provided a delicious dinner and Tropix got the party started with their live music and salsa dancing. It was a great evening! Congratulations, Kara and Nick!

Happy ONE year anniversary to Mr. and Mrs. Peterson! Ashley and Devin said “I do” one year ago at SeaScapes Beach House at MacDill Air Force Base. Their wedding will forever be one of my favorites. Click here for their wedding blog post. I will always remember Ashley’s extra sweet spirit as a bride, the rain drops that fell during their ceremony that were quickly replaced by sunshine, Ashley’s brother officiating the wedding, Devin’s joy as he married his beautiful wife. It was the PERFECT day. In honor of their anniversary, I asked Ashley and Devin to look back through their wedding gallery and select a few photos that are most meaningful to them. I’ll share their responses under each photo. Happy first anniversary, you two! It’s been quite the year for your family… so excited that you’re now a family of 3!! Baby Jack is adorable!
“The picture of Devin and his Best Man is so special because that’s the moment he saw me and having Kapil’s support for that meant the world to him. The picture of me crying during the ceremony brings back all the feels for me. I was truly pouring out my heart reading my vows I had written him. I also love that you can see all my girls.”
Congratulations to all of the 2019 high school seniors! Such an exciting time! I photographed this beautiful lady a few weeks ago at the gorgeous Philippe Park in Safety Harbor. Ellie is a talented singer (she is one of the worship singers at our church!), super strong (she does crossfit competitions!) and will be graduating soon and heading to Florida State University in the Fall. Congratulations, Ellie!!
Today’s blog is all about anniversaries in honor of my eight year anniversary with my sweet hubby today. We tied the knot eight years ago, at the Winter Park Farmer’s Market, at the young age of 21 and 22. We were fresh out of college and had spent the past four years at different colleges. We were more than ready to start our lives together. We spent so much time planning our wedding day and I look back on the day with such sweet memories. I’m so glad that we also prepared for our marriage during our engagement. We had deep conversations about our goals and dreams for the future, discussed our roles in our marriage partnership and completed a pre-martial course with our pastor.
For those of you that are dating or engaged, I thought about planning for future anniversaries while wedding planning and I came up with a few ideas of traditions to start on your wedding day. The goal is to start a new tradition on your wedding day and then continue it every year on your anniversary. This will help you remember your sweet wedding day every year and keep you young!
