I’ve known Ashlee for as long as I can remember.  Years ago we went to the same church.  Ashlee’s mom would come over (with Ashlee and her sister, Sam) and babysit us wee Wasses when my parents needed some “alone time”. :)  Ashlee always made everything fun and was so incredibly sweet!  I went to Sunday School class with Chris’ brother and so I knew Chris just from sightings in and around church.  Chris and Ashlee started dating while together in youth group at HEFC (our church at the time) and, 7 years later, they’re engaged and tying the knot in October!!!

So, you should know by now that my last name is Wassenberg.  So, the “Wassenberg Maternity Shoot” involved my parents!  We got them all dressed up, the day after Valentine’s Day, and took them outside for a few pictures.  Mama’s due pretty soon now…I can’t wait for lil’ Wass to make his/her appearance!

I told Daddy to look at Mama’s belly and this is what he did. :)

Now you’ve met my two parents and sibling #9!  Can’t wait to introduce little Wass when he/she gets here!

One of the biggest benefits of photographing weddings is that I get to capture those special, behind-the-scenes moments that no one else sees. Matt and Samantha’s wedding was a huge tear-jerker for me! I think I cried at least three times that day and that was because of the beautiful, intimate moments I was blessed to be a part of. Seeing tears pour down Matt’s face as he saw his bride walk down the aisle toward him, watching the dances…all of it was beautiful, emotional, and God-honoring.

Jason + Amara = Baby!

5:20 A.M. dawned dark and early.  I could’ve slept in another 25 minutes but I was so nervous I couldn’t go back to sleep.  So, I got up and got ready for the day.  I grabbed the two lenses I was going to use and walked out to our gazebo with my sister, Hannah.  We were spending a few days at a beautiful house in Nags Head, NC and soon some friends from church were going to arrive for a sunrise maternity photo shoot (yep, they’re that awesome!).  I was going to get to take my first ever maternity pictures (other than my Mama’s)!  I was so nervous yet excited at the same time…I just wanted to get started so the butterflies would go away.  As we waited on the gazebo, with the wind blowing our hair around, the sun started to rise and paint vibrant colors on the sky.  Thank you, Lord! I murmured.  My prayer for a beautiful sunrise was answered! :)  A little while later, I saw the lights in the driveway and went out to meet my friends, Mr. and Mrs. Etheredge!  As soon as I got a hug from both of them, the nervousness started going away.  We walked to the gazebo and then I took Mrs. Amara down to the beach for some silhouette “baby belly” photos.  And we spent the rest of our time together laughing and smiling!   Here are some of their pictures!

 

To say that Mr. Jason and Mrs. Amara were hard to photograph would be a lie!  They made everything so easy for me (though I’m sure they noticed my nervousness! :) and were willing to do anything!  They were great!

 
The pier that was nearby allowed us to get some great pictures!  I love that light in the upper right corner of the pictures! :)
As we were walking back to our house, I noticed that the sun had finally made his appearance and so we did some more silhouette pictures! :)
Isn’t the sunrise amazing?!  God is so good! :)
The ultrasound picture was completely their idea…I loved it! :)
 It took Mrs. Amara a good amount of effort to get her rings off for these pictures!  I’m grateful that she made the sacrifice, though, because I love taking pictures of rings! :) 
Aww!!
I have to throw a kissing picture in there! :)

Yep, they’re fun! :)
I love this one…very much!

Aren’t these little shoes adorable?!!  Once again, they were totally their idea to bring!

 Too cute!

The pretty Mama!
Oh, I love baby bellies! :)

L.O.V.E.
 Congratulations you two!  I cannot wait to meet little Grace Kathryn!

The Milletary Family

A week or so before Christmas, a friend at church contacted me to see if I could take pictures of their family when everyone was together at Christmas time.

Excited about the opportunity, I said “yes”!  Here are some of the pictures from the day:

The Williams family!
The Allens!
The Roper Family!
 Mr. and Mrs. Milletary with all of their grandchildren!
 The Milletary’s with their daughters and son-in-laws.
The girl grandkids.

The boy grandkids.
 Azriel (above) and Titus (below) peeping through the window!
 The entire family!
After we finished taking photos of the whole family, the grandkids got to play in the yard for a little bit!  It was freezing cold outside and the wind was blowing really strong, but they endured it well!

and 
Emma (right).

 Like I said, the wind was blowing really strong! :)

Once everyone had gone inside, I took a few “couple portraits” out on the porch.

Mr. and Mrs. Milletary.

 Mr. and Mrs. Williams (I love the above photo!!!).

Mr. and Mrs. Roper!  (The photo on the left is another favorite!)

Some more photos of the cute grandkids! :)

 

Azriel and Carter are the same age, so we had to get pictures of them together! :)
So there you have the beautiful Milletary family!!
This past Sunday I took some pictures of a precious newborn and his family so I’ll hopefully be posting those photos sometime soon!  And maybe one day I’ll post some pictures from the wedding I photographed last October…yeah, I have a tendency to procrastinate sometimes! :)
