My Cousin, Bethany's, Wedding

Weddings are such a wonderful time to come together and celebrate love and laughter and family and friends. I was honored to attend my cousin, Bethany's wedding a few weeks ago. I was not the official photographer for the day but most of the people who know me, know I don't go too many places without taking my camera with me. I took a few pictures of the event to give to Bethany as a little extra gift for her and her new hubby.
I know that Bethany likes all types of photography so I decided to play around with some of them and give her a few pictures that aren't the standard color photo.

Big party for little ones turning 1 years old.

They say that parents make such a fuss over their child's 1st birthday party and the birthday kid doesn't even know what is going on and won't remember it anyways. But if you have a photographer who is there taking pictures of every little detail, when that child grows up, he/she will see all the work and love and planning that went into making their 1st birthday such a wonderful celebration.

I was so happy to be able to take pictures of our dear friends, Zack and Allie Thayer's, very first birthday party. The "Thing One and Thing Two" party theme was so adorable. Mom and dad (Betsy and Brad) made sure every details was done to perfection. They wanted everyone to have a good time. But most of all, they wanted to give their twins a day filled with love. And with these (and many, many more) pictures, Zack and Allie will be able to see it all in "Captured Memories"....

If the celebration is important, shouldn't the pictures of the event be too? Let me help you keep those important times of yours and your family's memories alive in pictures.

Not sure if this is food or a big, messy toy.

Capturing your treasured moments... that's what I want to do for you. 

Whether it is with a beautiful portrait or just some "live in the moment" candids.... These are your memories and I am here to give them a lasting life.
As my friends and I get older, we are blessed in becoming grand-mas. My dear neighbor has one grand daughter, Lyla. 
Lyla is a character- full of life and fun. Here are a few pictures of a little girl- just being a little girl.

Don't let these treasured moments get away.
Call me to schedule a sitting soon.
