Who says a session at the beach has to look like you’re at the beach?!  Recently we met up with some of our favorite twins, Catherine and Luke, for their nine month session at Myrtle Beach State Park.  Only instead of using the beautiful beaches, we used the wooded pathways and ancient old oaks. And I love how it all turned out!  Our state has some of the most gorgeous state parks I’ve ever seen, and we love working in them.  And, of course, we always love the chance to catch up with these two sweet babies!  They were adorable as usual on that day and we had the best time!  See you again soon, Catherine and Luke!

According to my memories on Facebook, I blogged this sweet baby’s newborn session one year ago today, so it’s only fitting that today I blog her first birthday session!  What a cutie!  Anna Clare has been so much fun to watch grow up.  When I was photographing her birthday party I had the best time seeing all of the portraits of her first year displayed in their home.  It’s crazy how fast time flies and how much those little babies change in a year!  Happy Birthday, Anna Clare!  We love you, sweet girl!

My Goodness, if this sweet thing doesn’t make you smile then I don’t know what will!  Sweet Lillian is a doll baby!  She was all smiles for this session, and I just love all of those momma-baby images.  What a beauty!  Lillian, we can’t wait to see you again soon!  This first year is flying by fast!

Goodness Gracious, this time of year is so insane that I almost forget to breathe!  I could definitely use an afternoon at the beach right about now.  Anyone else?!  This weekend that we did this session for Betsy and her crew was about as close to perfect as you can get.  I love the beach in the fall.  The sunsets this time of year are INCREDIBLE, and the evening that we did this session was no exception!  The sky was literally glowing.  And those sweet babies and that sweet momma were just so happy to be out there together.  It was beautiful to see!  So I for sure can’t head off to the beach at this moment, but visiting it through their session and remembering that night will definitely help!  Guys, we had the best time!!

Isaiah 40:31 But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

This family is just the BEST!  We always have the greatest time when we’re with them, and their latest two sessions were no exception.  And Leighton’s birthday session was my very very favorite, because it’s when we learned that Baby #3 was on the way!  There’s simply no better surprise than that kind!  I’ll start this post with Leighton’s First Birthday session, and then include their family session after that.  We had the best time watching this beautiful girl grow up this year.  She’s a sweetie just like her big brother, and I have no doubt that their new sibling will be just as lovable.  Guys, as always, it was fun!  Can’t wait for round 3!
