Things To Do Before Hiring Your Wedding Photographer!

Jack’s Senior Photos

The Schuette Family is so special to me!  The first time Jack’s mom, Dawn, called me was after I photographed Bradlee’s cotillion party in 2014 that Jack and his sweet girlfriend attended.  Dawn wasn’t able to make it to the party to see her son exchange flowers with his date or to see them off… not to mention the sweet photos you want to get of your son with his date!  I know I don’t have kids yet, but I can already imagine them growing up so fast and that feeling of seeing them go off to a dance with their date would just be such a sweet moment to watch.

 Thankfully, I was asked to photograph that cotillion pre-party!  I edited and blogged it as usual, but didn’t anticipate for a moment that I would get a call from a mother that wasn’t able to be there, with tears of joy in her eyes, saying these were some of the best photos of her son she had ever seen!  My heart just melted right then and there!

Since then, I have photographed their family, the 2015 cotillion party, and now, Jack’s senior photos! : ) Nothing makes me happier than getting to know such amazing families, watching them grow, & getting the honor of documenting each phase of life!  It’s the greatest blessing!  Here a just a few of my favorites from Jack’s shoot…  : ) blog ready-1blog ready-2blog ready-3blog ready-4blog ready-5When Dawn asked me to do Jack’s senior photos, I insisted that her and her husband come along for just a few photos of them all together! : ) blog ready-6blog ready-7blog ready-8blog ready-9blog ready-10blog ready-11These lovebirds… blog ready-12… I can’t look directly at them!! Their cuteness is blinding!!!! ; ) blog ready-13blog ready-14blog ready-15blog ready-16Such a handsome guy! blog ready-17blog ready-18blog ready-19blog ready-20blog ready-21blog ready-22blog ready-23blog ready-24

Thank you guys so much!  Jack, good luck this year!! It’s going to fly by, I promise! : ) Try to enjoy it as much as you can!
