We had a big celebration this month, our baby girl turned one! These photos are from her birthday party and visit with family. We were so blessed that so many of our closest family and friends made it out to celebrate Haylee's first birthday. It was a hot day too and even with that hot hot day, everyone was in great spirit and enjoyed the day. I think next year we are going to look for a venue with air condition! Our snow cone machine could not have picked the worst time to stop working. I'm so glad the kids forgave us and enjoyed the piñata, balloons, toys, cake and dessert table instead. That worked out in our favor! haha! Haylee may not remember this day, but i'm so thankful to have captured it. I mostly took video with the help of our great friends. My aunt, an amazing photographer helped photograph the day and I wish I could upload ALL her photos on here too, but you can check those out on facebook. I wanted our family in Alabama to see the day and feel like they were with us! Thanks to all of our great family and friends, ya'll are truly amazing and I want to say again how blessed we are! And not to mention the amazing gifts she got. I'll have to take separate photos, but just thank you all!

The video is pretty long, but great video of Haylee "blowing" the candles on her cake, gift opening, pinanta fun and more! (27 minutes)

my look back on 2017

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in. I love documenting our memories and being able to look back, reflect and cherish all of these moments.  It is the best part of this blog. I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN! I hope ya'll had a great year as well and if not... there is much to look forward in the New Year! It's a new beginning!

I'm probably going to write a long blog so sorry! 
Our year was full of so many joyful experiences. Our Winter, we received snow and Haylee got to go sledding for the first time. Haylee loved it and we had lot of fun with her. She did not want to come back inside. Souwan celebrated with a low key birthday at home with his new table grill. The Rowan Museum had an awesome exhibit on Cheerwi…

Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm

This turned out to be a great day for the Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm! It was cloudy but warm and perfect for picking strawberries. It was calling for rain but we didn't see a drop thankfully. This was an early Mother's Day trip for us. We have come to this farm every year to pick strawberries and i'm so glad we had another great trip! 
Haylee told all of her friends she was going to the Strawberry patch and she was so excited! It's the perfect date or family outing. It's for everyone! Picking strawberries in the patch and having a homemade ice cream is a great way to spend quality time together. Hope you enjoy photos from our visit to Patterson Farm!

Charlotte NC Engagement- Maurice + KaShara

Although we had overcast weather and it was in the 60s, this engagement session turned out to be the best! There wasn't any wind and these two are wonderful! Souwan, Haylee and I drove out to the Noda area of Charlotte to meet with Maurice and KaShara at Amelie's. I had a wonderful time getting to know all about the two of them and details about their upcoming fall wedding. As soon as KaShara and Maurice walked in with huge smiles and hugs, I knew this was going to be a great couple to work with! I have known Maurice since college and was so thrilled that they reached out to me on Instagram. I easily fell in love with KaShara and just knew this is a match! We went out to Noda and our old college stomping ground Frazier Park behind Johnson & Wales. Noda is filled with really great places to photograph from all the beautiful buildings and the artistic work! Frazier Park brought back memories for all of us! They have the cutest furbabies who they used to bring to Frazier. I l…
