Children’s Photography: The K. Family

“Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,

Oh what fun it is to sit upon the floor and play!

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,

These sweet twins are featured now upon my blog today!”  😉

Family Photography: The B. Family

It’s that time of year again:  CHRISTMAS PICTURES!  😀

Lights, stockings, decorations … and a beautiful family with two little boys I’ve gotten to watch grow ever since they were newborns.  What could be better?

Family Photography: The B. Family

Such a fun family photo session!  I first met the B. family a few years ago, when they were expecting their son.  It’s been such a pleasure to watch their family grow!  🙂

It was a chilly day, but everybody did great!

Baby C. was also celebrating her first birthday!

So we went back to their house afterwards to celebrate with some cake:

It was a chilly day for pictures with the W. Family!  But the sun was out, the decorations were festive, and it was a great day for family photos!

Baby O. is turning one year old … it doesn’t seem like that long ago that I was doing his newborn pictures!

Family Photography: The S. Family

Last week was Fall Break for the schools in the area, and that meant one thing:  time for fall pictures!!  🙂

On Thursday, I got to meet the S. family at the park.  We had a blast!

I loved the way C. interacted with her baby sister … it was easy to see that she thinks the world of her.  ❤

I enjoyed spending time with you again, K. family!  And I’m so happy to meet you, Baby M.!  🙂

Wedding Photography: C. and D.

I got to be part of a beautiful wedding a couple of weeks ago!

The weather did its best to keep everyone guessing, but even the wind and the rain couldn’t put a damper on the excitement!

mhaynesphoto_weddingphotography_h02

Gorgeous bride!

mhaynesphoto_weddingphotography_h03

The wedding was originally going to be outside, but we had a last-minute change of venue, so that everyone could stay dry.

After the ceremony was over, the sun came out.  Just in time for pictures!  🙂

Just one reason October weddings are so beautiful:

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!  CONGRATULATIONS!!!  🙂

Wedding Photography: L. and T.

Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of some longtime friends of ours!  I first met L. and her family back when she was a young teenager, and my husband has known them even longer.  It was so wonderful to be a part of her wedding day!

Sometimes the guys just have to blow off some steam:

The wedding was beautiful, and so was the bride!

After the reception in the church, we all went across the street to the park, to continue the party (with the addition of another special guest.  Being invited to the party put a big smile on his face)!

Congratulations on your exciting new adventure together, L. and T.!  We love you!

Children’s Photography: D.

Hooray, Baby D. is turning ONE!!  🙂

mhaynesphoto_childrensphotography_d5

This little guy is already super quick on his feet!  But he always has time for snuggles with his grandma:

mhaynesphoto_childrensphotography_d2

Or laughing with Mom:

mhaynesphoto_childrensphotography_d4

Or contemplating the deeper meaning of cake.  “Hm.  I know this cake is delicious.  But WHY is it delicious?”

mhaynesphoto_childrensphotography_d3

And of course, every piece of cake always tastes even better when it’s accompanied by a toy tractor!

mhaynesphoto_childrensphotography_d1

Happy birthday, Baby D.!  It was great to see you again!  🙂
