Capturing a family reunion. Forester Reunion 2015 http://www.bbaven.com/blog/2015/7/capturing-a-family-reunion-forester-reunion-2015 The Forester Reunion was orchestrated by a former colleague of mine, and he was thanked over and over by those in attendance for all of his planning and preparation. I was invited to attend their church service before and I am glad I did. The singing was beautiful, and hearing their love of family and of God was refreshing.

Let's just say Carrie's mom hadn't planned on Taylor Swift being blasted on repeat for hours, nine girls singing along while having a fashion show, the water balloon heard round the world, the amount of popcorn and pizza little girls can eat, and the fact that they can stay awake for SO long if you also feed them ice cream. I am glad I made it to this party, because I don't think there will be another one like it. All the girls said it was the best party ever! I know it was the best 8th birthday party I've ever been to in all my 41 years.

And when the water balloon fight was over, they scurried inside (I'm still laughing because these tracks continued into the house.)

As much as they loved the sparklers and glow jewelry, no party is complete without a fashion show. In between outfit changes the sing-a-long with Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood' was on HEAVY rotation. They changed, and changed, and changed again! Each outfit was FABULOUS, and at one time we all thought there was a large wild cat in the house. RAWR!

I had to call it a night, and I thought everyone was snuggled up and ready for some rest...

I can't wait until next year's party, though I feel it will be in a park somewhere, in the middle of the day, with little hope of another large slumber party...

Happy Birthday, Carrie. 

Best. Party. EVER!

I had a fabulous time with this high paced young lady. She may just be busier than me, and I'm so glad she picked me to capture her senior pictures. We had a great time in downtown Chattanooga, and riding the carousel was an added bonus. I can't wait to post her whole gallery!

Ahhh Weddings. I have to say I love shooting them. http://www.bbaven.com/blog/2014/6/ahhh-weddings-i-have-to-say-i-love-shooting-them

The Duble + Russell wedding at Cloudland Canyon State Park was so beautiful. I am thankful they hired me to be their photographer (there really is no higher compliment, than for someone to hire you as their photographer).

 

We started our day at In the Buff Day Spa, in Chattanooga, TN ( http://inthebuffdayspaandsalon.com/ ) The bride had her hair and makeup done. And the maid of honor/sister of the bride also had her hair done. I thought they both looked beautiful, and I appreciate that the staff/management allowed me to photograph, while they worked. 

 
 
 
From there we went to one of the bridesmaid's houses, so the bride could get ready. I must say it was an amazing location, and I appreciate that I was allowed to photograph there as well. The light in that room was fabulous!
 
 
 
 
 
It was finally time for the reveal/first look photos, and I raced over to Cloudland Canyon to get all set up ( http://www.gastateparks.org/CloudlandCanyon ). Thankfully, my son and his friend helped me do some test shots at the location a few days before, so I was prepared for the sun. On the day of the wedding, I was glad to not see any of the huge ants that had crawled all over us when we did our test shots. I thought the reveal and group shots were great, and I was happy I had taken the time to prepare for the harsh sunlight. 
 ^For the soccer fans :) ^
^They do this pose beautifully. 
 
Guests started arriving, so the bride retreated to a cool place, and the groom greeted/seated guests. Just before the ceremony I was able to photograph the father of the bride praying with the bride. That photo received so many comments on my Facebook wall, because it was such a special moment. 
 
 
Time moved very quickly after that, and I can say that at the end of the day I had 3300 photos to sift through and edit.
 
The father of the bride read from the couple's new bible. It was a moving verse, as they had recently lost a patriarch in their family, and it was obvious his love was one that had taught them all to love and value family.
 
 
 
It was a magical day, and I am so happy I was there to capture it all. I should include that I invited one of my former students to come help me as a second shooter, and he did a great job. I also had my son working with me that day, as my bag handler :) I hope they enjoyed seeing what it's like to cover a wedding. They were instrumental in making my day that much easier.

Shooting in the morning (with a new lens). http://www.bbaven.com/blog/2014/4/shooting-in-the-morning-with-a-new-lens

 

I've read that you need to push yourself and do new things, so I did. I tried out the lens I bought a few months ago. It is an inexpensive lens, and I think it worked out very well.

I am not used to shooting in the morning, but I loved it. The light was amazing!

I loved all the details. I will definitely use it again and again!

 

A huge thank you to my winners for letting me try out my new lens during their session.

Blake + Blake | Married http://www.bbaven.com/blog/2014/1/blake-blake-married I loved this wedding, and I am so thankful they allowed me to capture their special day! Blake and Blake married at the First Baptist Church in Fort Oglethorpe, GA on Saturday, January 4th 2014. They married at 11 AM and had a breakfast/brunch meal at their reception. The bride was beautiful, and her groom was handsome. Their friends and siblings filled their bridal party, and were a great bunch. I pray Blake and Blake have a long, happy, love filled marriage. I am including a few of my favorite pictures here, to see them all click the link at the end of this blog. 


Here's to a long, happy, love filled marriage. To see more pictures from Blake + Blake's wedding day, or to purchase prints, click here http://www.bbaven.com/p487902195

Jude's 3rd Birthday | Up http://www.bbaven.com/blog/2013/12/judes-3rd-birthday-up This was the 3rd year Jude's family asked me to take his birthday photos, making them my longest running clients. I was so overwhelmed when I first received the request I thought it best not to comment on Facebook about it, because I'd be a blubbering mess. That said, when I broke my leg I told my husband, 'yes, I'm still going to do the pictures', he was worried  about me. I told him I'd get there early, photograph the decorations, and then find a comfy place to sit with a great view of the action. It was a great party, and I made it through. I appreciate Jude's family for allowing me to be the one to capture their special moments.

Happy 3rd Birthday Jude! 

Here is a sneak peek from the party; to view all the pictures see the link at the end of this post.

Jude's Mimi made the cake, it was delicious and beautiful!

 

Jude's reaction after checking out the decorations. He was so excited!

The house was a hit!!

The banner, which has been at each of Jude's birthday parties, had to make itself known. I think it needs to be included in all of his birthday parties since it's been incorporated in the 1st three.  

There was a short break for snacks.

The party really got pretty festive!!

There were gifts,

and there was cake.

Then there were hugs, 

and then the balloons were finally his!

Jude finally wound down by inspecting his decorations, and playing with his dad and grandpa.

Someone was very worn out,

and someone else has more surprises to come...

 

 I look forward to meeting Jude's little sister :)

Huskins | Rock Springs | 2013 http://www.bbaven.com/blog/2013/12/huskins-rock-springs-2013 I was so excited when Jennifer contacted me to do her family's photos. She had asked her friends for recommendations, and I was one of the lucky ones to make the list. We had a great time at a local Christmas tree farm, and I think we got some great photos. Scroll down for the link to the rest of the photos.

The Neals | Chickamauga | 2013 http://www.bbaven.com/blog/2013/12/the-neals-chickamauga-2013 I had the pleasure of photographing this wonderful family on a cold, cold day. I had the young man pictured here in my class for his 7th and 8th grade years. His mom and I have chatted more as moms now that both our boys are in the high school band together (& the indoor drumline :) We managed to have a really fun time on a freezing day. I brought along hand warmers, and that gave everyone a little extra push to make it through. 

You can see all the pictures & order here http://www.bbaven.com/p994587065

Meeting Eliza http://www.bbaven.com/blog/2013/9/meeting-eliza Eliza | Chattanooga | 2013

I met the sweetest little lady recently, and can't wait for her to come back for another visit. Eliza is a doll, and her mommy and daddy love her so much.

 

                                                                                                      Eliza and her mommy. 

 

She let me hold her, and she smiled. She talked to me; baby sounds of course, but still beautiful sounds. When she was done hanging out with me it was time to go outside, she loves being outside. 

 

                                                                                                Eliza with her Aunt Patty, Mommy, and Bebe.

 

Family is such a beautiful thing. 

I am looking forward to seeing her again soon. 

 

                                                                                                Eliza with her Bebe.
