My blog may have been quiet for the last few months, but my life certainly has not been!   I am happy to announce that last month I got married to a true “angel” and the love that I had been looking for much of my life, Mr. Bryn Higgins.  We have been brought together by God, I am certain of that! I am so happy to have him as a father to my chosen children, and with him, he adds to our family two more beautiful children that I will cherish.   I am excited to see what future we create together, as it is wide open for us!

Here are some images that capture our special day together.  It was a handmade wedding, put together with the help of both of our wonderful communities, we could not have done it without them. What a beautiful experience to have such loving individuals help us do everything from folding hundreds of paper cranes, making tea sandwiches, creating our special cupcakes, designing giant paper flowers, performing beautiful songs in honor of us and capturing our day with their talent.  We are so blessed.

I was so excited to be asked to photograph bright eyed Harper!  At 6 months old, she is full of personality and beauty.  I am certain she lights up every room she enters, just as she did my studio, and will continue to do so as she grows up!

I also had a chance to photograph Harper with her adoring grandparents too!

When mom and dad walked into my studio with a banjo in tote I could not wait to hear the story behind it. I figured someone played it, but instead, it was a nickname big brother Ryker gave him while he was still in the womb, and it stuck!   They really wanted to capture him with the banjo, and after much patience to get 13 day old Reece asleep, he finally gave in, and we were able to get this sweet first image.  Three years ago when Ryker was a newborn we captured a fabulous set of pictures with him, unrivaled by many.  But once Reece took his nap at the very end of his session, we were able to match those amazing images and get many more sweet moments of the two of them together, I know they will cherish for years to come.

Meet bright eyed Preston at two weeks old. You may remember his gorgeous mother from her maternity session at the Cambodian Temple. It took us awhile to get him to settle in and sleep, which gave me the much loved baby holding time I always look forward to.  And to top it all off I was delighted that he gave us so many of his sweet little smiles to capture.
