Heather Dollard is one of my LONGEST friends. We met before kindergarten at a music camp, and we have been those true childhood friends ever since. Many a weekend growing up were spent playing together in the creek, with our Brat dolls, making up silly dances or watching movies, and practically every summer was spent together at Camp Sycamore Hills. Basically, we’ve grown up together, and anytime we are together, it feels just like it always has. I so cherish these kinds of friends! Heather was one of my bridesmaids, and I can’t WAIT to be one of hers in August! Until then, please enjoy some of the engagement pics we took together a couple weeks ago!
Yes, I realize that it is now a week into 2019, but I realized I never posted some sweet Christmas photos I got to take for a new family in December! While I was shooting with Jessi and her dhttps://haleycharltonphotography.wordpress.com/2018/12/18/christmas-with-your-pup/og Eva, Jessi’s dear friend Gabby and her two little boys, Nash and Anderson, came along for the ride! Jessi is the boys’ godmother, so of course she jumped in some of the photos. The results are just precious because they are such a happy, magical little family! I truly hope I can capture their family again sometime.
My friend Jessi asked me to take some Christmas card photos with her and her dog, Eva. Of course I was NOT going to turn that down, being the huge dog lover that I am. With a little treat bribery and plenty of outtakes, I think we snapped some really great ones! Merry Christmas!
A Christmas tradition of mine has always been to watch “The Nutcracker” ballet – going almost every year since I was little to the Nashville Ballet’s production. Once I started working in Dalton, I learned that the show is a huge deal here, too! My co-worker, Mendy, has both of her daughters performing as Arabian dancers in the show this year, so she wanted to document this special instance with them dancing the same part! I can’t wait to see the show this weekend. #GoNuts!
Ps – You’ll also see Emma and Izzie’s brother in some of the photos. While he isn’t technically an Arabian dancer, he was too cute not to include in this post!
You may remember last spring when I posted some photos of Cara and Daniel as they were waiting on little Ruby to make her appearance. This time around, Ruby is the shining star! I just love this beautiful family and the autumn colors we are getting to enjoy right now! Happy fall 🙂
