I've been so excited to capture my bestie's maternity pictures & today could not have been more perfect for her session. Justinne & Emil are expecting their first baby, Isabel & I can't wait to meet her & tell her how long I've been praying for her & how much she is loved not only by her wonderful parents, but her army of Titas (aunties) & Titos (uncles).
Emil, Angie & Isabel, I love you three so much & I'm overjoyed watching your family grow.
We have lived on opposite coasts for all of our lives, but times they are a changin'!
My California bestie, Reinna is now living on the East Coast a few states south of me & she's very pregnant.
The last time we saw each other was so early on in her pregnancy that I didn't get to see her beautiful baby bump in all it's glory. So this month my family & I took a trip down to see her and Christian, her husband.
Here are some photos of Rein & her 3rd trimester bump on the streets of downtown Wilmington & Wrightsville beach.
Rein, I love you, Chris and that baby boy growing inside you, so much!
Hey friends! It's already October and whether we are ready or not, the holidays are quickly approaching! There are only 6 weeks until Thanksgiving and 10 weeks until Christmas.
Before you know it, it could be too late to send out Christmas cards!
This southern Maryland sweetheart is so kindhearted & so poised. I know you are going to do some incredible things in your lifetime, Elizabeth. I'm grateful to catch just a piece of your journey & celebrate the amazing young woman you are right now!
Can I take a second to talk about this fabulous cake?
The tropical hand painted layer, a subtle hint of pink & the gold geometric lines,
this is the brain child of cake-maker & artist, Rachel of Sprinkle with Kindness.
Inspired by tropical greens, ballet blush & a dash of gold, Rachel & I teamed up for the sweetest collaboration to celebrate the relaunch of her bakery, Sprinkle with kindness.
Rachel is an out-of-the-box thinker/baker, who's original designs take my breath away.
Ever see a square macrame inspired cake? Keep on scrolling to see all of Rachel's baked goods! Wedding cakes, party cakes, cupcakes, cookies, you name it ... she can bake it!
THIS was my best senior portrait. My slightly-cubby-teenage cheeks, a standard set of fake pearls, this weirdly- centered composition in a sterile & boring studio setup, & finally a zero-personality-fake-smile - yep this my BEST shot.
