The Nash Family

The Sunday before Thanksgiving our family went to my great-uncle’s house for a Thanksgiving meal!  The food was really yummy and we saw lots of our relatives.  After the stuffing lunch (no pun intended), I took some quick family portraits for my Uncle Sean, Aunt Amanda, and cousin, Cameron.  (You may remember Cameron from the newborn pictures I took of him!)
I don’t usually start my posts with unhappy pictures but Cameron’s face was too precious!  He obviously didn’t appreciate being placed on the fence post. :)
Cameron was much happier being held!

A little Daddy love!

One beautiful family! :)
The Lord has blessed me immensely with lots of photo shoots this year (11 for the entire year)!  I had a photo shoot this past Saturday (pictures will be coming), I have another one this weekend and my last one of the year (right now :) is on Dec. 17th.   
I’ve really been enjoying all these opportunities to fine tune my skills and bring glory to Jesus!

Grant and Courtney: Engaged!!!

One day this past February, we were over at Courtney’s house celebrating her birthday.  We ate some yummy snacks, talked, and played a version of “Hot Potato” in the front yard (in the cold, Feb. weather), and then watched Courtney and Grant (who happens to have the same b-day) open their gifts.  Once all the gifts were opened, there was a little bit of an awkward silence for a few minutes.  And I don’t remember exactly how it started but Courtney soon started out on a game that led her to a note card, then to another.  After going from the front yard to the backyard, into the house, then outside again, over and over again she finally stopped by their T.V.  She found the hidden note, read the rhyming words, and then, when she looked up, Grant was down on one knee.  And he proposed (rhyming the whole time!)!  Her reply was a joking “I don’t know, Grant”, and when everyone laughed, she said “Sure” with a big smile.  They were engaged!!! :)

So, there you have their story!  Here are some of the engagement photos we took last Saturday at Maymont Park.  Enjoy!

This picture just makes me smile:


Love this next one!!

Nothing like some Fall colors!


Aww…Courtney, look at you!

Yep, Court and Grant were sitting on a tree a few feet off the ground!

I’m so glad they decided to get up on this tree because these next two pictures became some of my favorites from the day:

This was totally their idea.  (Honestly, if my photographer asked me to go in this tree, I probably would’ve had my fiance go in there and clean out the spiderwebs/bugs before I would venture inside.  But this was, once again, Court and Grant’s idea so they didn’t even hesitate! :)

 I can’t pass up a chance for a silhouette!!

Such a pretty ring!  (Good job Grant ;)

 Look at this tree!!!  Oh, how I love Fall!

Congrats, Courtney and Grant!  I’m really looking forward to your wedding next April!  :)
  I pray the Lord continues to guide you two as you search out His will for your lives.

Love ya!

The Beninghove Family!

First off, I have to tell you how amazing this family is! :)  We were planning on doing the pictures this past Saturday but, when the weather was forecasting rain, we switched to Friday.  Well Friday dawned and it was freezing! :)  Not only was it freezing but there was a cold, piercing breeze too!  It was cold!  Nevertheless, they all were amazing troopers!  You never would guess (by the pictures below) that it was freezing outside!  Everyone would quickly take their coat off for a few pictures and then put them back on and warm up before doing it again.  All the little B’s were great troopers.  Micah, the youngest, wasn’t too happy when he first got there but once we let him go play he really warmed up! :)
Anyways, this entire family is so, so sweet!  The children are so happy and they listened to anything I’d suggest…doing it with a smile!  Mr. and Mrs. B also made my job easy by encouraging the little ones and smiling all. the. time.  :)
Enjoy some of my favorites from the day!
Micah wasn’t too excited about smiling…he just wanted to lay his head on Mama!
Aren’t they a beautiful family?  (Mrs. B you did a great job with the outfits!  Love the coordinating colors!!!)

This is Maddie.  She’s such a great big sister! :)  Her smile is so pretty and genuine!
 I really love how Matthew’s shirt match the red berries in this photo!   Matthew was so easy to take pictures of because he was willing to do practically anything!

 And this is Micah…he’s such a cutie but he didn’t want to show off his smile until later.  He just wanted to be with his Mama (totally understandable! :).

 The Mr. and Mrs.! :)
Don’t kill me for posting this, Mrs. B! :)  I love how fun you are! ;)
They said they call this the “Maddie sandwich”.

Mrs. B was trying so hard to look at Mr. B without laughing!  It took a lot of hard work but she eventually could do it! :)
After the “posed” pictures we let the little ones go play at the nearby playground.  That is when Micah started warming up…lighting up the day with his beautiful smile and cute personality! :)

Love the big, brown eyes!!!
Matthew stopped in mid-play for this picture!
Miss Maddie!
I told them to give me a “silly face” and this is what I got! :)

Have I mentioned how sweet these guys are?!  They didn’t even hesitate when I asked if they would give Maddie a kiss!  Too cute!!!

Micah didn’t want to be too near the tree, so he just touched it for me! :)
So, so sweet! :)
And one last photo of the sweet Beninghove family in the gorgeous Fall colors:

The end!  Thanks so much, Beninghoves, for entrusting me with your family pictures!  I felt so special when you contacted me about taking some family photos and I had so much fun laughing with you all in the freezing weather!  May the Lord continue to bless you all!
