Dane & Tristan {Wedding: Part 2}

After Tristan arrived at St. Mary's in Oxford, her bridesmaids headed into the church to let us know they had arrived.  Tristan waited in the limo, ready for her first look with Dane.  We brought Dane out to the front of the church (beautiful lighting and location!), where he awaited his bride.

Dane & Tristan {Wedding: Part 1}

 We began our day at the Coralville Holiday Inn, as the bridal party was finishing their preparations for the day.  Tristan and her bridesmaids were getting into their gowns and touching up their make up, while Dane and his guys put the finishing touches on their suits and straightened their ties.

Studio Remodel {A Journey}

If you've been reading my blog, you know we've been working hard on getting our remodeling projects finished and everything looking great around the studio.  It has been a long journey, filled with wood paneling and dry wall, carpet and laminate flooring, painting, trim, new doors, new steps, and many more projects.  It has been a much bigger project than I ever anticipated.  Doing the work ourselves has been both a blessing and a set back at times.  I have to say though, as I sit here at my desk, I am so happy and thankful for all the long hours we have spent making the studio better.

Brian + Rebecca {Engagement: Part 2}

 For part of their session, Rebecca and Brian brought their dogs along.  The pups weren't excited to sit and be part of the portraits, but they did a great job.  While it took a while to get them both to look the same direction, I think we got some beautiful portraits of them together.

Florida {Part 2}

 The beach!  Ah, beautiful St. Augustine, we meet again.  It was a brief trip to the beach due to the wind and chill (by chill I mean it was in the 60s, brrr! Lol!).  Though truthfully, after the 80s we'd been enjoying while walking around Orlando's amusement parks, 60s seemed like freezing temps.  We decided to skip putting swimsuits on the girls since it was chilly and windy.  We figured they'd just get their feet a little wet and be content.  Ha!  We should have known better.

Florida! {Part 1}

After many years of waiting and planning, we surprised our girls with a spring break trip to Florida.  The girls are currently six and eight and at the perfect ages for the magic of Disney.  After a very long drive, which went surprisingly smoothly, we arrived at our hotel in Florida and settled in to recuperate from the journey.

We spent all day on Friday at Disney's the Magic Kingdom.  The pedometer on my phone counted us at a total of 11 miles walked around the park that day.  Such a busy and magical day!!  The girls loved the rides.  Pretty sure Gabrielle is now a roller coaster junkie.  At six, she'd never been on a roller coaster before.  We started her off on Space Mountain.  Oh my.  She was in the seat in front of me gripping onto the bar for dear life as the roller coaster began to move, so nervous and excited.  As we rounded the first turn and gained speed, all she could say was "THIS IS AWESOME!"  She then insisted we go on every roller coaster there at least once and was a little bummed when we went on the rides that were more "experiences" than thrill rides.  Laurelin enjoyed all of the rides; the waiting not so much however.  I do have to say, they are now pros at queuing.

Brian + Rebecca {Engaged: Part 1}

 Last weekend, I met with Brian and Rebecca at Palisades-Kepler State Park for their engagement session.  It was a chilly, windy day, but the sun was shining.  Thankfully, Brian and Rebecca were troopers and kept smiling despite the cold.
