Baby Asher

The past week has been a wild ride! I won't burden you with details, but suffice it to say that I started a new freelance photo styling job, laid my Grandfather to rest, and celebrated the birth of my nephew Walt within the span of 4 days. It's been WILD! The silver lining through all of this has been new life and the presence of all our relatives who came from near and far to grieve and celebrate with us. One of the participants was my cousin's new baby, Asher. He was born on Christmas Eve ringing him in at just under one month old. My cousin and his wife joined us from Florida with their new bundle of joy, and I just couldn't resist taking a few snaps of his new little self! He wasn't that interested in the idea, so after about 5 minutes he insisted I quit... already taking after his dad! He's a cutey! Mark and Elizabeth, thanks for coming to join us and bringing Asher along. It was fabulous to see you both and such a pleasure to meet your little man. I love you each!

Dana + Sean... married!

After months of preparation, an engagement and bridal session, multiple visits, lots of laughs, and a little stress, Dana and Sean celebrated their wedding! It went off without a hitch. The wedding was at 2pm on January 3 which could have been confused with any day in May. The weather, though icky in the morning, warmed right up to near 70 degrees with gorgeous blue skies! It was amazing. We had a great time! Dana and Sean, thanks so much for including me in this celebration. It was such an honor to document this amazing time in your life. I hope you will always look back and smile. Your journey has just begun! Enjoy the ride! Best - MT

Dana's details

love the pennies

Finishing touches with mom.

The fellas! They were a great group of guys!

Dana and her dad gave each other a high five on the way out... such a cute family!

After the ceremony, Dana and Sean took a breather. I snapped a few shots and then let them be until the extended family gathered for photos. When I went to fetch them, Dana stood up with big tears in her eyes. She made it through the entire morning without a tear but when they had a moment alone Sean told her something that touched her heart. It was so sweet to see!

All the bling.

Nothing better than a good squeeze from dad!

The wedding party joined in the dancing!

Dana - Beautiful Bride

Earlier this fall, I joined Dana at the Foster Robinson house to photograph her stunning brideness. It was such a pleasure working with her. She is soooo gorgeous and loved being a bride and it oozed out of every pose she brought to the camera! It was great! Well.... last Saturday her handsome groom got to see what all of us have been gushing about, and therefore I can now share some of the photos with you! Here are a few of my favs. Photos from their wedding will follow shortly. Enjoy!
