ONE Year Old Hot Air Balloon Session : Featured Beyond the Wanderlust

Oh my goodness we created this session for Bella Mae last year for her first birthday.  Ryan and I have been able to document Bella as a newborn and her brother from newborn to 4 years old!  We love these kiddos.  Getting to watch kids grow and document it for parents is such a blessing.  Bella's session is featured on Beyond the Wanderlust!!  Her sweet little cake was created by Kendra's Bakery Creations.

Sam and Carrie chose their sweet little home church to say "I DO".  This day was beyond fabulous.  We got to work along side the wonderful planners with The Whole Shebang along with so many other awesome wedding venders.  The weather was beautiful.  We decided to head to Daniel Boone Gardens in Boone to do the their first glance and the wedding party pics.  Everyone was so green and beautiful!  After their super sweet ceremony where they literally tied the knot =) we headed to the Appalachian Summit Trail Solarium for the reception.  Take a look at Sam and Carrie's awesome winter engagement here.  Thanks so much you two for allowing us to be a part of your day.  MUCH love.

A Fifth of Beam: Maternity Family Pictures

Gosh we had the best time with this adorable family.  They are expecting their 3rd little sweet one very soon.  He or She (surprise) will make the Fifth of Beam for the Beam Family.  We were able to enjoy the beautiful sunshine on their land near the dairy farm that they own and run.  Beam Dairy Farm is a family business ran with lots of hard work and love.  The ultimate southern family even with Suzie and John Boy being these kiddos name's.  I can't wait to hear what this new one will be named.  Looking forward to meeting the fifth of Beam =). Much Love.
