Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Halloween has long been one of my favorite holidays.  Costumes and candy! Yes, please!

This is by far my favorite Halloween EVER… even though we’re not throwing our big annual Halloween bash; something much more special is happening—it’s one of many, many FIRSTS we get to experience with our sweet baby boy Jackson.  I’m so excited for him to get to see all the trick or treaters come to our door!  We took him to the ‘Bootanical’ event at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden yesterday-he was soooo cute in his little Tigger costume!

Here’s a couple of the snapshots…

Bridal portraits {Laura} South Mountain, NC

Now that Laura and Ke’s fabulous wedding has happened, I can share Laura’s lovely bridal images!  I LOVE a good outdoor bridal portrait session…and this has got to be one of my favorites!

I love that she went with a non-traditional dress–I’ve seen a lot of black embellishments on wedding gowns lately, but Laura’s was unlike anything I’d seen!

Laura was up for anything, which is always fun for a photographer… She really wanted her bridal portraits taken somewhere dear to her, so off we went to the local state park, where she had spent her childhood playing in the creek!  And what a gorgeous creek it was!  I loved all the huge rocks and the way the sun was streaming through the surrounding trees.  It was a little cold in the water…but totally worth it!

DIY bridal bouquet for bridal photographs

Laura MADE this bouquet herself–these are handmade paper flowers–she also made her bridesmaids bouquets like this.  She also made the centerpieces–but on a much larger scale!
