Autumn is my most popular time of year for shoots! I do all sorts, weddings, maternity, babies, and especially families. Everyone wants to get those gorgeous fall colors on their Christmas cards. I don’t blame them! Looking back on all of these great autumn shoots, I can’t help but long for warmer weather…I guess it’s a good thing that I’m moving in just two short weeks to North Carolina! Although the only thing that I wont miss about Central NY is the snow, it’s lovely in pictures but not so much when it comes to driving!

The Tuttle family is one of my favies! Jim and Kelly pastor Faith Chapel where I attend. So when their children Erin and Jamen needed senior portrait for their yearbook we opted to do a whole family extravaganza! It’s such a joy to be with this family, they’re so loving and giving of their time and attention. It’s going to be very hard leaving them, they’ve given me so much! Thank you Tuttle fam! I love you oodles!!!

I’ve known Nikki for about 4 years now. She’s and her wonderful family attend my church, Faith Chapel. It’s always such a blessing to capture a wedding and even more so when you worship & pray together on a regular basis! So when Nikki asked me to do her wedding I was more than thrilled! She and Marquis are like peanut butter and jelly, they just go so well together! When you meet them and watch them interact it’s obvious that their souls were ment to be tied to one another. So of course their wedding day was amazing & full of beautiful moments. I especially love that they got married the day after Christmas! All of the decorations were stunning & we got to play a little bit in the snow! (Thanks for braving the wind for me guys!)  The whole day was a giant celebration of two families FINALLY becoming one! Thank you so much Nikki & Marquis!
