I adore this family! I met Meghan’s sister Kelsey when she was planning her wedding two years ago. Then I was able to photograph her new baby Willow, then Willow smashing cake when she turned one and now MEGHAN! A senior in high school! We had so much fun on this shoot.

We thought these would be our last pictures because the sun was going down…

Then Meghan’s brother-in-law brought his Razor and drove it into the field for light!

This sweet family. Lacy and I became friends when she only had two kiddos and I was praying for a second. What a joy to be up at their cabin with them and capture their people:)

Being hired as a photographer at someone’s most important life moments is humbling. Being up close when a father gives his daughter away, when a man sees his bride for the first time, or when a girl goes from a “girl” to a woman in a Quinceanera ceremony. There are tears and even if I just met the family days before these big life events, I tear up right along side everyone else. I didn’t just meet this family though. They have become dear people to us and this is the second Quinceanera I photographed for them. I enjoyed helping capture this special day for them last weekend.

I could not get over how stunning Melanie looked…DSC_4206DSC_4261DSC_4282

Love this family!DSC_4297DSC_4353DSC_4375

And these boys are top notch. Most were familiar faces from Melissa’s QuinceDSC_4380DSC_4400DSC_4406DSC_4413DSC_4426DSC_4438

Look at them! Being so gentlemanly; helping Melanie in and out of the truck, learning and performing choreographed dances, posing for pictures….DSC_4495

…but they ARE teenage boys after all. I was glad to see them be goofy too…

And so was the Salon that the ceremony and reception was to be held in.DSC_4643DSC_4654

Five more years and we’ll be photographing this little lady:)DSC_4660DSC_4894DSC_4720DSC_4747DSC_4761

Who does the photographer sit and make friends with when her family isn’t there? These sweet, just out of middle school girls of course. I think they were super mature and I’m super immature, so it worked perfectly. DSC_4851DSC_4894DSC_4898DSC_4903DSC_4907

Too much cuteness.DSC_4919DSC_4927DSC_4932DSC_4933DSC_4941DSC_4945DSC_4980DSC_4993DSC_5004DSC_5008DSC_5020DSC_5033DSC_5045DSC_5060DSC_5086DSC_5098DSC_5148DSC_5172DSC_5220DSC_5245DSC_5270Lots of love Moreno family!
