This family rolled in  and one by one ecstatically climbed out of the car ready for their photo session.  The girls were beautifully poised and I could see their faces soften into a genuine smile as I greeted them .    So sweet I couldn't help but sigh at how cute they were.  Their glances and flashes of smiles made me smile too! Boys , lets face it ,  are usually  a little not as eager to meet me, but one was my ol' friend at this session   so he kindly gave me a big grin  and was ready to go  see what I had in planned. I noticed how his new brother  looked  up to him .  Although, definitely he had his own style and personality too .   This new family , I would never had guessed meshed together within the year and are very bonded .  I am so happy to see the happiness on this mom's face she has so deserved!

They also own In Their Honor Transports .  A very honorable service for a   loved one during a time of grief.  Check them out on Facebook too

Tree Farm Family Photography Session Wallace Family

It's the last of December and catching up on a few end of the year sessions . It  was chilly but the kids were troopers and bundled in some blankets to warm up again.   This family session took place at our nearby tree farm  .  Its a beautiful setting and a ton of trees to choose from . They even offered Tractor rides and Santa visits on the weekends .  If your hungry you can get yourself a toasted twinkie too or a cup of hot cider .  I really enjoyed capturing this  family and their  playful children .  They seem to adore each other and laugh and play a lot !Wallace_family_Becci_Photography_Tree_Farm

Canton Photographer Mom and the Love for her Son

One of the most loving mom's I have ever met,   fun , sweet, & beautiful! She Loves her son beyond measure .  This session really made me wish I had had a session with my three boys  when they were young .  You can't deny seeing how each of them  is so connected and utterly loved .  They didn't need me to prove this but it will always  be a sweet reminder to see it and feel it.

Bryce & Elyse { Jasper , Georgia Children's Photographer }

I love it so much when I get to photograph clients as they grow . I can't believe that this is the 3rd time I've photographed this beautiful family . Elyse. .... let's say she is a firecracker !  I love her . She can be the most beautiful serene girl  and in a moment be climbing trees and hanging upside down, and is always giggling  !  Next time I'm climbing the tree with her . :)

Bryce . He is handsome and has the most adorable boyish grin .  He is all about the adventure , exploring and creating his own tree fort in the woods  .  He loves his dogs and has the best laugh!

Terry + Tye The Barn Dance Surprise Wedding!

Oh what a difference 24 hours can make .  If you would of told me last Friday that I'd be photographing a surprise wedding at a Barn Dance on Saturday ,  I would of said, " Yay, right!"  First of all, have you ever heard of a surprise wedding ????   Nope , didn't think so.  Surprise Proposals , sure , but not weddings ! 

 Okay , it actually happened  and I was told for absolute certain that there was going to be a wedding  at about 9:30  the night before ,  but that no one must  know! I was sitting at Taco Mac with my husband when  in came a text from the Bride , Terry , who just found out .  EEEEEEEEEEEE eeeeeeeeee!  I exclaimed  right there in that restaurant . And so,  the story begins.....

These  dear  friends of mine have been engaged for a very  looooooong time .  They have become like family to us  and are always there when needed. They are a fun, energetic , and   passionate couple.  Ten years of them being together , actually, it's eleven years, with  eight of those years  engaged !   It just seemed like .....it was about time !  Everyone wondered when it would happen but after so long we  kind of thought that was the way it was going to be, until now.

Who would think up such a thing ? Tye would .  Tye thought it'd be something no one would expect to get married at the 16th annual Wallace Barn Dance. Terry of course was ecstatic beyond belief and if you know her you can imagine! The barn dance is held every year in one of the coolest, old weathered barns Ive seen. Its a   a fun time where  family & friends  gather for potluck style homecooked food and then are entertained with folk  &  bluegrass style music .     But ,  this particular night was a first for a wedding !

It was a blast  !   Tye and Terry were so excited and happy to finally be getting married. They disappeared during the show  to get ready . We  hid out on the edge of a field in complete darkness taking pictures until the final act would be announced . Then we moved to the smoke house where we were surprised to find Elvis getting ready ! We knew it was close to time  as the fiddle player played his music  and it was time for Tye and Terry to say their vows In front of the unknowing family and guests .  What a story they will always have . A story to share  and that's what its all about !

Here, is where it  all began,  but remember SHHHHHH, NO ONE CAN  KNOW ......

 

 

 

 

 

You both deserve so much happiness! Love you both & Thank you so much for allowing me and my family  to be a part of your big special day for the 24 hour ride ! It was amazing & I will never forget it! xoxo!
