Newborn announcemnet...Look Whooo's Here!

So, I had to share this adorable announcement of Jonathan Alexander Wade! It has to be one of my favorite creations so far. And, what fun I had creating it! Jonathan's mom called and told me she had this cute little owl hat and sent me a photo of it to see if I could come up with an idea for the newborn shoot....well, I fell in love with it right away and set out to find materials to create a nest. Fun, fun, fun! When he came in for the shoot, I was a little nervous about all the scratchy materials around him and that he would never get settled. But, he was perfect and the pictures turned out great! Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed creating them!

Whitney + Jeremy Engagemment Pics...

So excited to post these engagement pics of Whitney and Jeremy...We had such a great time creating these images and I am so excited to share them with you! We ended the session at my house and surprise! My chickens had to get in on the action! LOL They were running around everywhere while I was trying to photograph the happy couple...I especially thought the one of the chicken staring back at them kissing was just too cute! Congratulations Whitney and Jeremy!

So here are a few images, a video and a few facts about the happy couple. Enjoy!

Where did you meet?
We met at WVU through Student Government. I had just been elected to the Board of Governors and he had just been appointed as the Maniac Director. We met at the SGA retreat.
What is your Song?"Then" by Brad Paisley is probably "our song." That's how he found inspiration to propose to me and it seems to describe us.

Tell me about your first date?
First date was in March 2006, we started dating April 4, 2006- one week after the first date.

How long have you been together?
We'll be dating five years this April.

How did he propose?
He proposed the same place we met, Dorsey's Knob Lodge in Morgantown. We met at the SGA retreat in 2006, I was in charge of planning the SGA retreat when I was Vice President of WVU Student Government in 2009. He had told me he couldn't come up for the retreat, so I wasn't expecting him. My chief of staff (and best friends) helped him organize everything. We were playing games at the retreat, and during the "Scavenger Hunt" my friends led me to the 3rd floor of Dorsey's Knob and Jeremy was there (with my parents and best friend who weren't in SGA) to watch. So the Brad Paisley song "Then" is kinda perfect: "I remember, taking you back to right where I first met you.." You were so surprised. There were people around, but I didn't care, I got down on one knee right there and once again, I thought I loved you then.."
