Gosh, the years fly by faster than I can keep track. I met Jennifer at Morais Vineyard back in 2014 after working a JMU wedding with Jared and Brittany. We immediately hit it off from the getgo because we were JMU Alumni. Not just that, she’s SO easy and fun to work with during a wedding. :) Jennifer planned their wedding, so I had the privilege of getting to know her through her business first. Not long after that experience, I designed a JMU styled shoot involving a JMU vendor team. Naturally, I contacted Jennifer to see if she was interested and I’m so glad she was because since then, we have become more than just business friends! We get together for an occasional drink or lunch throughout the year, and I’m grateful our businesses crossed paths.

Last year, she closed down her wedding planning business as she prepared the arrival of her second baby, Gemma. After Gemma arrived, she realized her passion for wedding planning could not be broken, and I’m SO glad she realized that because she’s amazing!!! My couples adore her, and I know other couples do too! :) She has a fresh new look, and you HAVE to check it out HERE!!! I cannot wait to work with her again! :)

I have photographed this family for years, and I think this is my all time FAVORITE! You can see how happy they are in these photos!!! :) Now having Gemma in the family feels complete! It’s cute seeing Isla so excited to be a sister. :) Makes my heart melt looking through these moments below! I know yours will too!! I found myself laughing hysterically at points of their session because Isla would whip out the “Whip Nae Nae” moves in the middle of a photo. That girl will make anyone’s day! :) I adore this family the more I get to know them, and again, I’m SO grateful to have them in my life! Cannot wait to watch this family grow over the years to come.

Thank you, Baer family, for another incredible time together! Thankfully, this session wasn’t as cold as our last gathering. ;) WHEW! That was an unforgettable experience. This session was unforgettable in the sense of these memories will never be forgotten. Your happiness is evident, and I could not be more thrilled for you all!
