On this date one year ago, God entrusted us with the most precious and wild spirited little boy, Isaac. He was in such a rush to join our family that the doctor almost didn’t make it in time to deliver him and he hasn’t slowed down yet! Within twelve short months he has gone from an average 7lbs. 15oz. to a whopping 27lbs and has had many milestones along the way!

Around March our lives got much busier then they already were as Isaac became mobile. Along with his new found crawling ability, he also became our human vacuum cleaner! No bug in his path was safe! I have had to really step up my cleaning efforts with him around!

Despite every effort on my part to have his first word be mama, he said dada when he was six months old which made his daddy extremely happy. Shortly after that, when I would say mama and he would shake his head no and say “dada” and giggle.

He finally cut a few teeth around seven months old and was most excited when we began introducing real foods after his nine month check up. He was so excited that he didn’t want to wait on us to introduce some foods! He learned to pull up and after that Henry’s lunch was never safe! We have found him many times under the kitchen table enjoying any leftovers he can find!

These past couple of months he has been pulling up and walking while holding on to things and here recently he has gained a little confidence and started to let go to take a few steps. His favorite part of his new trick is that everyone claps for him. He loves it so much that he now claps for himself constantly.

Isaac’s name means “he laughs” and I am pretty sure that is the perfect name for him! He is always laughing at something. He has brought so much joy to our family. I can’t even imagine our lives before he arrived. Henry told me when Isaac was born that Stephen and I were the boss, he was the apple and Isaac was the sauce. He was absolutely right. Our family just wouldn’t have been complete without the sauce!

This past year has certainly been a busy one and I can’t believe it has flown by so fast. However, a part me feels like Isaac has been in our family forever. He is definitely my little wild man. Always climbing on something or getting in to whatever he can reach, but I wouldn’t trade him for anything in world! I can’t wait to see what the next year holds! Happy First Birthday, little man!

    Wanda Bennett - His Dr. didn’t make it! A Dr. in the hall heard them and came in just in time to catch him. She didn’t have time to prepare, she caught him with no gloves or scrubs on.

On July 14, 2012, the whole town of Meridian, MS was bustling with news of a unique wedding taking place that evening. Two sisters and two grooms. We, with the help of our great friends, Adam+Alli Photography, had the honor of photographing the wonderful event. I can no longer say that I have never been at a wedding where there was a line waiting to get in an hour prior to the ceremony!

Rachel and Robert had been engaged for a while and waiting for Rachel to graduate before their big day. When Laura Anne and Chris got engaged, mom jokingly suggested a double wedding. The girls weren’t going for it! Later at an MSU game, the girls brought up the idea to their friends and much to their surprise their friends thought it was an awesome idea. After some thought Rachel and Laura Anne decided to share their wedding day. To make the story even better, Rachel and Laura Anne have an older sister who celebrated her fifth anniversary on the girls’ wedding day!

Rachel and Laura Anne were both gorgeous brides and their grooms were equally as handsome. I loved that even though they were having a double ceremony, they each had their own individual personalities in so many of the details.  It was truly a beautiful day and we are so thankful we were asked to be a part.

If you happened to be looking for family or friends in Meridian, MS on July 14th, look no further. I’m sure they were partying with rest of us! I kid you not about how many guests attended Rachel and Laura Anne’s weddings.Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Westbrook and Mr. and Mrs. Cox! We wish you the best and thank you again for allowing us to be a part of your special day!

A few weeks ago we had so much fun hanging out with this beautiful and energetic couple.  Morgan Proposed to Tasha by a lake which we had to incorporate in pictures, but I had the most fun when we got to the more urban pictures.  So much fun, that the time got away from us and we ended the engagement session close to 10 pm!  You two rock and I hope you like the sneaks.  We can’t wait for your wedding next year.  Thank you for choosing us as your Mississippi wedding photographers.

Stephen and I had such a great time celebrating with Susan and Joel last weekend! Their wedding was absolutely beautiful and I LOVED that Joel actually made Susan’s bouquet! That has to be one of the most awesome things a groom has ever done for his bride!

I have no doubt that Joel truly loves Susan. Shortly after their engagement session, my grandfather became very ill. When Stephen went to drop off their engagement pictures with Joel, he asked about my grandfather and shared the sweetest story with Stephen. He told Stephen that he knew the meaning of true love because of watching the way his grandfather cared for his grandmother before she passed away. Shortly after he knew he wanted to propose to Susan. What a legacy his grandparents have passed along!

Thank you for choosing us as your wedding photographers in Jackson, Ms!  We have really enjoyed getting to know you both and your families! We hope you had a wonderful honeymoon and enjoy the sneaks!!

    Jo Clapper - beautiful couple, beautiful pictures!

Ashleigh and Davis are such an awesome couple! We have truly enjoyed getting to know them. If you keep up with our blog, you may remember that Ashleigh actually wore the same dress in some of her engagement photos that her mom wore for her engagement photos. When Ashleigh told me this, I knew I liked her and that her wedding would surely be wonderful and sentimental. I am proud to say I was right. Their wedding definitely did not disappoint and we were honored to be their wedding photographers!

Ashleigh and Davis chose to get married at the beautiful First Trinity Presbyterian Church in Laurel, MS. Not only was the church fabulous, it was also the church Ashleigh’s parents were married in. So many sentimental and personal touches filled their wedding day!

We hope you guys had a wonderful time on your honeymoon and, Davis, we are so thankful you didn’t give Ashleigh the chance to say no to a date! You guys are absolutely perfect together! Thanks for giving us the opportunity to share a little piece of your love story and to be your Mississippi wedding photographers!
