The Webster Duck Pond

One of the biggest honors I get as a photographer is return clients. It means so much to me! It’s also amazing to watch previous wedding clients grow into families! Creating new & beautiful chapters in their lives.
 
Not too long ago I got to document Katie & Mike’s snowy winter wedding back home in Syracuse. In just 2 short years, they’ve moved home to Syracuse & started a family! Josie is hilarious and we had an amazing afternoon exploring the Webster Duck Pond. We then wandered over to Meacham park where swings are a favorite and then ended in the most perfect way!
 
When I shot Katie & Mike’s engagement session, we ended the day at Gannons Ice Cream. How fitting that we ended their family session at the same place! Let’s just say Josie is now a fan of ice cream! I can’t get over her cute messy face! AH!
 
Not only was it a great adventure with the Rey family, but it was amazing catching up on life. So much has happened since their beautiful wedding. It’s such a joy and honor to capture this new part of their lives!
 
XOXOXO,
Mabyn

Shannon and her sweet family are one of my favorites to get to spend time & hang out with! Shannon always makes me look fabulous when I get my hair done with her and in turn I make her & her family look fabulous with our photography! This time she brought along her extended family too and they are a riot, let me tell you what!

We ventured into Shannon’s neighbor’s property (don’t worry permission was given) in Kernersville, NC and found this fantastic field with a very cool old building. We watch the kids run, snuggled sweet new babies, and showcased the legacy of generations for this sweet family. I can’t wait until we get to spend quality time with this sweet family again!

XOXOXO,
Mabyn

Hooray for another installment of The Reyes Family! Yes! Your favorite punk rock family is back and this time they’ve got a new addition, Tirzah! That rounds out the happy group to 5! Jens, Dylana, Anouk, Leland, and beautiful little Tirzah! For this round we went with a rustic theme with a little bit of danger…Mr. Check-in Teller Man at Green Lakes didn’t like that we parked by their old storage barn. So he sent Ms. Security Lady over to check things out. Luckily she was all about photos and let us do our thang in peace! Thanks Green Lakes Security Lady!

As always the Reyes Family was so wonderful to work with! You would never know it was 100 degrees that day…literally. Tirzah is soooo sweet and content, she barely cried the whole time! This family is seriously so stinking fun, especially because we get to talk about things like the Harry Potter Premiere & other geeky things. *Sigh* I just love them so! Anywho, enough of my jibber-jab. Here’s their latest chapter!

Look at those beautiful big eyes! Isn’t she sweeter than pie?!

Anouk and Leland still crack me up every time. I managed to get quite a few of them smiling at the same time…normally that’s not the case! Hah!

Dylana’s idea about the barn really paid off, I’m in love with it!
