Bernadette’s Maternity

Let me tell you how interesting and amazing this photo shoot was! The photo shoot started out perfect, as you can see by the gorgeous light in those field photos. Bernadette looks like a Goddess!

As we got closer to the beach, the winds picked up and all of the sudden we were taking photos in freezing, crazy winds! So, big shout out to Bernadette and her sweet family for working through it. Basically, the motto throughout the whole photo shoot was just to embrace the wind! And Bernadette still looks heavenly with her hair blowing around.

Congrats on a beautiful pregnancy Bernadette, and I cannot wait to photograph your babies birth!

Marissa and David

First off, I love these two people! Over the past few months Andrew and I have had dinner with them every Sunday. They are the cutest couple, as you can see. I was so happy that they gave me the opportunity to test a new photographing style on them for their save the dates! And I love how these turned out. It helps when your clients are basically models….not joke, I am pretty sure they have both modeled before! Thanks Marissa and David. Love you guys!

The Batts-Millaudon Family

This was such a fun photo shoot. This family is not only so sweet, but they are all also very photogenic! I mean look at those eyes on those girls and that sweet baby boy!

Also, this was my first cake smash, and it was SO MUCH FUN! I want everyone to contact me for their cake smashing’s! Because there is nothing like capturing babies eating cake.

Thank you to the Batts-Millaudon family for letting me capture their sweet family!

Styled Bride and Bridesmaids

This was such a fun styled shoot I did with my friend Katie Brown! I love getting together with other creative people. Magic happens!

Here are the creatives I worked with for this photo shoot, and their instagram tags:

models @haileyturley @imlarahues @ana_.oc / creative director & planner & florals @katiedalebrown / photographer & planner (yours truly) @christine.b.photo / hair and makeup @bellacgrr
My favorite part of this photo shoot was the posing style. Before the session started I talked to the models about how I wanted them to get close and comfortable with each other because I wanted the relationship between the “bride” and her “bridesmaids” to be affectionate and sisterly. I wanted it to look like they had been best friends for years! On the other hand, this is a styled shoot. So lets get fashionable with it! We decided to take on some editorial poses as well. It was varied, it was fun, and it was FREEZING AND RAINING! But these girls nailed it!
Thanks for an awesome photo shoot girls.

Emerald and Kevin!

Only 3 months later and I am finally getting around to updating my website! Life with kids is busy and hard.

I have so many feelings towards this family and these photos. Thank you to Emeralds mom, Ginger for taking a chance on me. This is my first wedding, and I know that can be nerve racking for some clients. I had so much fun and am really happy with how the photos turned out. Emerald and Kevin have such a pure and fun love. They were smiling and laughing the whole day! I loved watching them, and I loved being a part of their big day.

This photo shoot was also special for me because it confirmed to me that not only can I totally do this, but also that I LOVE photographing weddings! There is just something so special about capturing two people who are so in love!

Congratulations Emerald and Kevin, I hope married life is treating you well.

The Well’s

No on to my sister. I have taken photo’s of my sister’s family a lot, and this is by far my favorite shoot. I guess that is what happens when you grow and improve! Anyway, my nieces and nephews are active children, but they are seriously some of my favorite to photograph because I have to get with THEIR program. I have to get low and let them be silly and have fun in order to capture their smiles. It is so fun for me to do and helps me connect with my family better. I must say, these kids are getting better at stopping and smiling, but I still love their silly photos the most!dsc_4219dsc_4262dsc_4271dsc_4290dsc_4314dsc_4334dsc_4374dsc_4384dsc_4451dsc_4577
