Brittany and CD: Lexington Engagement Session

Caroline Rose

Our little daughter is one now and I am reminiscing like crazy.  Year one was a wild ride filled with laughing, crying, swaddling, and crawling…from all three of us.  Seriously, having a baby is a blessing and a gift.  I love her more than anything and love Gabe more than ever.

I thought it would be fun to have different perspectives for our family sessions of Caroline’s first year.  So we chose four photographers and they each did a beautiful job.  These photos mean so much to me and bring tears to my eyes every time I look at them.  Having our photos taken several times this year has given me more joy for photographing family session and weddings.  These are times, moments, and seconds that we will cherish forever.  Caroline has made me love my job even more.  Thanks, Rosie!

Our photos (in order) were made by Nick Key, Natalie Hagen, Davina Fear, and Lynnesy Catron. You are all very talented and we had the best time with each of you.  Also, thanks for Ana Crane and Allison Johnson (The Pink Loulou) for my hair and make up.  I needed help in those early sleep-deprived days!

Kaitie and Shaun: Louisville Wedding

A proper way to end the year is to start blogging again.  Coming in 2015, you can expect to see more of our recent work as well as the wonderful people we crossed paths with in 2014.  Having a baby in January has made this the best year of my life.  Our 25 brides also contributed to making 2014 a chart topper.  We work for the beautiful, kind, and genuine people and I look forward to sharing more of their images with you in the coming weeks.  For an overview of the year, follow me on Instagram and Twitter, @honeyheartphoto.  Gabe often posts as well and you can find him at @gabelawson.

Kaitie and Shaun, we had the best time braving the cold with you on your day.  You remained cool as cucumbers, literally, and you look amazing in your photos!

Merry Christmas!

Little Hartley: Lexington Children’s Portraits

These are my first newborn photos since Caroline was born.  I love taking newborn photos even more now.  It is a precious time.  Even if baby is screaming or has to take a snack break, the chaos is worth it.  I must admit, at work I take frequent “edit breaks” and stare at Caroline or the pictures we have taken of her.  She is changing so fast!

Thanks so much, Brandi and Nick, for including me in such a special time.

Rachel and Patrick: Louisville, Ky Engagement

 

 

If you live in Louisville (heck, even if you don’t), you have to visit Foxhollow Farms.  The grounds are gorgeous and they have an annual summer concert series.  It is also the perfect place for engagement photos.  It was so fun seeing Rachel and Patrick.  There style was perfect for the scene!  See you two in St. John!  :)
