Baby Harper {Newborn Session}

Last week I had the pleasure of spending a little time with sweet Harper within her first few days of life. All the excitement with my sister having a baby due this November has got me craving some baby love. Other people's babies that is. Don't get any ideas ya'll...seriously.

Anyway, I just adore how these images came out :)

The Baby Shower Crazies

I got to throw a baby shower for my little sister this weekend, and I had a BLAST decorating and planning everything. I'm pretty sure my husband thought I was crazy!

Anna requested cucumber cream cheese sandwiches :)

I bought this dairy and gluten free farmhouse mac n cheese from Gluten Free Cutie in Roswell.

These caprese skewers are made of cherry tomatoes, mozzarella balls, and basil leaves topped with a balsamic vinegar reduction. So good!!

Homemade guac and chicken and zucchini poppers.

Fruit and cheese tray from publix ;)

Gluten, dairy, and egg free cupcakes from Gluten Free Cutie. Yeah, I might be obsessed with that place :)

My sister's friend's mom made this cake and it was too adorable!

I sketched this little elephant to use a decor for the shower and the nursery!

Ok, this was my fav part! Little succulents for the shower favors! I ordered these off of amazon and wrapped them up in burlap to give away.

The sparkling strawberry lemonade was a hit! I found the recipe here:

Gotta love baby shower games ;)


TL + Ashley {Cumming Engagement Session}

What can I say about TL and Ashley? Umm probably like way too many things. I'll try to keep it short ;) I remember the day I met Ashley. She didn't know, as most of the friends I've done this to don't, that when I left that night I vowed to make her my friend. Yes, I realize that sounds very creepy, but she is such a gem! You guys would have done the same, ok?! TL and my husband were working at the same company at the time and I told Craig, you need to be friends with TL because I think I love Ashley... and so our friendship was born. Many years, several vacations, 1000 laugh until you cry moments, and too many margaritas later, my dream of a perfect couple friendship is still coming true.

TL and Ash, 

      While I know and have spent time with each of you separately, I've mainly gotten to know you as a couple; together. You're both amazing and incredible (and sometimes hilariously strange *cough* TL *cough*) people with so much to offer. Your talents, your interests, your personalities all compliment each other so perfectly. I have no doubt in my mind you two are meant to be together, and its such a rare and magnificent thing to witness the kind of love and commitment you have for one another.

So here's to a beautiful wedding, a lifetime of happiness together, and 50 more years of friendship! ;)

Love you guys,
