Emily and Andrew are engaged!

Maybe it was the beautiful October sunlight...maybe it was 2 photogenic people who are in love and were comfortable in front of my camera...maybe I'm slightly biased because the subjects were my lovely, sweet niece, Emily, and her fiancĂ© Andrew...maybe it was Memphis.  Wait, we weren't in Memphis.  Whatever the reason, I'm so thrilled with the images from their engagement session that I had a VERY hard time narrowing it down to those you see here (which is more than I typically post).

Emily and Andrew, I'm honored to be capturing this oh so happy and exciting time in your lives!

Knowing Emily's love of reading, libraries, and the smell of old books, I thought we had to get some photos "in the stacks".  We got chased out by firefighters the first time we tried to enter the library, however.  They gave us the stink-eye for ignoring the very obvious, very loud fire alarm going off.

Emily, don't hate me for posting this one - I just think it's cute and shows how much fun you guys have together.

Em and Andrew, I had a great time with you guys and I'm so excited for your upcoming wedding!  Love you both.

Jessica & Matt - and Brantley on the way!

Jess and Matt were so excited to welcome their first baby into the world.  And these 2 are so sweet with each other, making it a pleasure to capture their love and excitement with my camera.  Life has thrown a few curve balls at Jess and Matt but they are determined to face it all together. 
Jess and Matt, thank you for allowing me to document this very special time in your lives.  I believe you will have many wonderful, happy days ahead.

Post photo-shoot comment:  little Brantley was born at the end of September and is still in the hospital because of health problems.  He is expected to come home very soon, but if you're reading this you might say a little prayer for Brantley and his parents.
