Baby Lien Fresh 48

Oh. My. Word. Meredith Grace. Welcome to the world little lamb.

Where do I even begin with this one?!?!? The adorable doll of a baby? The PRECIOUS 22-month-old sis? The perfect mom who delivered a freakin' baby the same day of this session and looks better than I do on a normal day? The sweet (outnumbered) dad holding his second DAUGHTER?!?! AGHHH this one was good for the soul!

Seriously, the Lien family is absolutely adorable. (I'm still trying to figure out how to get adopted into it.) Anyways, Karen casually looked absolutely stunning just hours after delivering her precious little baby girl and is one of those moms that makes it look all too easy! Suzie, the 22-month-old sis, was probably the cutest thing I've ever seen. When I walked into the room she immediately made it known that little baby Lien was her baby and nobody else's (apparently not even Mom and Dads). She's already got the protective older sis thing down! Henry is now officially outnumbered by beautiful ladies and was seriously glowing with a smile that was so contagious it had me smiling! I could go ON AND ON about this one, but instead, here are the pics. WARNING: these may make you steal (or make?) a baby. 

 
 

Bryce + April Wedding || Monroe Georgia || The Engine Room

 
 

YOU GUYS! WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN WITH THIS ONE?!?!?

Sheessh! Let me start by introducing these two amazing human beings. Bryce and April. EVERYONE needs friends like Bryce and April. These two encouraged me, praised me and bragged about me throughout this ENTIRE process. Seriously, they may be my biggest fans. And I couldn't feel more thankful! 

I seriously LOVE these human beings with my whole heart. Bryce is one of the funniest people I know, and can literally have me laughing out loud constantly. April has one of the sweetest hearts I’ve known and even her voice can bring you from a stressed out mess to a state of yoga zen in a quick second. They are encouraging to one another and to everyone around them. And best of all, they are on FIRE for Jesus. I am so thankful for their friendship and so so so flattered that they chose ME (little ole me) to document their special day.  Literally, they are amazing people and everyone should have friends like these two.

So without further adieu…Bryce and April’s WEDDING! 

 
 

Big Sur Day Trip

Bethany and I decided to take a day trip down to Big Sur this week and it was LITERALLY perfect. Peter has been out of town for almost 2 weeks now (YEESH) and a girls trip was the dose of medicine that I needed in these last few days before he gets home!

ALSOOOO, Bethany is a beautiful soul, amazing human being and super rad friend. We just so happened to be able to escape the Monday norm and head down to one of the most beautiful places on earth. This trip was complete with junk food, rolled down windows and blaring music. Big Sur also happens to be just a short 2 hours from where we live. LIKE WHAT?!? We live in the coolest place EVER. Anyways, here are some pics of our lil escape. 

 
 

Half Moon Bay Greenhouse Session

My. Greenhouse. Dreams. Have. Come True. 

DUDE! How freakin' perfect is this session? I mean, I may or may not have contemplated making our apartment an actual greenhouse. Let's just say I'm married to a rational human being who was able to talk me out of buying 10,000 orchids for our apartment.

Anyways, Julio and Candice are freakin' rock stars and made this session every bit as dreamy as I imagined. If you ever have the opportunity, go to these Half Moon Bay Greenhouses. They will not disappoint. 

 
 

The Cutest Little Family Session

YALL! What is up with all of my clients being freakin' rock star amazing talented people!?!?

Meet one of my favorite people and her adorable little family. She and her husband are absolutely amazing people! Also, this lady is one of the most talented surgeons in the Bay Area! I've had the pleasure of knowing this sweet family for over a year now and honestly feel so proud to be their friends! Proud of the sweet family they have and the hardworking parents they are. I look up to Mai Thy in so many ways. She is beautiful inside and out, hardworking (remember the surgeon thing?! yeah, she spends 14+ hours in the OR most days), a MOM, wife and all the while a caring friend. (Also, side note but her husband is one of THE most amazing cooks! Seriously, he can whip up an amazing meal without even batting an eye.) 

I am so lucky to call these guys my friends! AND THEIR KIDS ARE ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

The Pender Family

EEEEK! The Pender family just added a new adorable lil one! I was able to take maternity pictures for Tyler with the rest of her adorable little family (linked here) several months ago when this lil guy was still growing! It's crazy how fast time is flying bye! 

This session gave me all the feels. One of my favorite things was seeing how Camille and Caleb interacted with their new baby brother! It seriously was MELTING my heart! Anyways, here's another session of another perfect lil growing family that I LOVE! 

 
 

The Ahmad Family Session

You Guys!!!! This family of five was almost too much cuteness for me to handle!! First of all, BOTH parents are freakin' rock stars! Mom is a surgeon (um, okay, NBD just birthed three perfect children, is beautiful and is a bad a** surgeon) and Dad is a doctor! These kiddos are certainly lucky! I LOVED how much love these three lil ones had for each other! It was seriously contagious. Alright, enoough rambling! Here they are!

 
 

Bryce and April Record Store Session

Holy Cow. Can I get a freakin' AMEN for these two?!?!

I have been wanting to do a record store session since I bought my first camera and these two took my vision and made it a pure gold. Like I feel like I may owe them my first born child for the talent they brought to these pics. They are for real too good. 

Bryce and April are literally too cool for me. We've known each other for over a year now (see their engagement pics here) and I seriously love hanging with them (which we frequently do now--they may or may not be here on our couch now watching the super bowl with us). I could go on and on about how much I love them and how much I freakin' love this record store session. But the pics are too stinkin' good and I can't wait any longer to share them! Sheesh. K. Bye.
