The Johnson Clan #1

Saturday, June 18, 2011

Happy Friday everyone! Fridays have now become my safe haven; Saturdays and Sundays are jam packed with weddings with Jennie Andrews so Friday is my day of rest...well, after my full time job! But trust me, I am not complaining! The more I'm behind my camera that happier I am! :) (Oh, how corny did that sound?)
Anywho, I am introducing to you The Johnson Clan (#1)!  You will understand the #1 next week...
Meet Cristi, Brett, Braeden and Evan!Photobuckete

These two boy boys are just beyond adorable...and hysterical!

When they first got out of the car, this kiddo, Braeden, hopped out and just said "Hello!", but it was the cutest way a little boy could ever just say hello! Ahh, we became best buds instantly. Not only did he like me, he liked my camera! Which always makes you my instant friend! The looks he was giving me were soooo funny! Plus, who couldn't just fall in love with those big blue peepers?! He will, most definitely, break hearts...over and over again!

Now, this one on the other hand was a little bit tougher to crack! Meet Evan! He was a little bit skeptical...and who can blame him? You've got a peppy girl running around with a black box in front of her face, pointing it at you and making a  lot of noise...I'd be a little standoffish as well. But boy did he love his brother. He's a little daredevil, but he just wants to do everything his big brother does! So sweet!

Cristi and Brett were so awesome and so much fun to work with. Plus, you could tell how much they just absolutely loved their kiddos. And who couldn't, they are so stinking cute!! Thanks so much Cristi and Brett, not only for trusting me to take your boys' pictures, but for letting me hang out with them too!

The Bowers' Bump

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

So I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was when my awesome cousin Micah and his beautiful wife Heather told our family that they were expecting! Little bursts of screams were heard all around Knoxville and Virginia! And lucky me got the priviledge not only to go to her baby shower (even if it was an 8 hr drive in an automotive clad mini van with a broken foot - me, not the van), but Heather asked me one of the best things you could ask a family member...to shoot her belly! Well, you guys know what I mean! Maternity shoots are one of my favs! Not only because it is one of the most laid back shoots (what 8 month pregnant woman wants to run around to tons of different locations?) but also because these are pictures that really will be cherish for a lifetime! One thing that Heather and Micah decided to do was keep the name of the baby a surprise from everyone...I think it has leaked to a couple of people here and there, but in the end they want to go with a name they love and I couldn't agree more...
Oh and it's a GIRL!!!

I am in love with the next three pictures...I couldn't settle on just one...or two! :)

And this is why photographers always want to shoot at sunset...look at that yummy light!

I can't wait to be Auntie Kayla to a new member of our amazing family!

Ladybugs in the Garden Baby Shower

Thursday, June 2, 2011

Can anyone else believe it is already June?! Where has this Spring gone? Well, many many things have been going on with my life lately...if you hop over to Jennie Andrews Photography, you just may see yours truly in all my Bilmore-engagement glory! Plus, I am now finally out of my boot (long story that ends in a 4th fractured metatarsal) so I finally have some time to put my full attention back on my love (other than Robby), photography!

I was asked one of the most flattering questions there is to ask a photographer (at least in my opinion) by R.D. Berrie Weddings and that was to help showcase her talents! The creator and head-honcho of R.D Berrie Weddings is Holly, a super fun, quirky and uber talented gal in Richmond, VA. She also so happens to be my beautiful cousin! When Heather (my other cousin) announced that she was having a baby, Holly almost instantenously sent me a message asking for my help in capturing this beautiful event. I had been stalking Holly's Facebook page and drooling over the amazing Thanksgiving Turkey butt cupcakes and beer cheese cupcakes (they look so yummy) that I knew her eye for detail was going to be jaw dropping at this shower...and boy she didn't dissappoint! So enough with my jibber-jabber and onto the pictures.

One of the best parts of the whole day was when Heather and Micah came in and saw all the decorations for the first time. The whole shower theme was a complete surprise for Heather and you could tell she was more than impressed from the expression on her face! :)

Make sure to check out these yummy cakeballs' creator, Morsels! I've might have snuck a couple of these into my goodie bag while no one was looking! :)
And all that devine, yummy candy came from Sweet Spot Candy. If only there was a candy shop like that here in Knoxville!

I love how much Holly used plants in at this event. Even the smallest of events can stil be completely transformed just with the flowers and plants - real or paper!

The best element of the entire room is this next picture. Holly went to, well, I'll say extremes for this little surprise. Or should I say a couple thousand surprises?!? She had over 3000 of these little guys in her fridge. But lets just say...these sure were the hit of the party (besides Heather's adorable belly!)

So definitely make sure to swing by R.D. Berrie Weddings' Facebook page. Even if you aren't getting married, you can get some inspiring ideas from her pictures! :)
Holly and Heather...I can't say enough. I had such an awesome time with you two! :)
