2015 Behind the Scenes - Tyler, Karen, and my Messy Bun

To recap some of the incredible moments I've gotten to be a part of in 2015, here are a few behind the scenes shots of some of our weddings, newborn, and portrait sessions. I had a blast pulling these images together and reliving each session, but what I really loved as I was putting together the best of the best, was that there are a few common themes in these images that I love:
  • Tyler and I have a lot of fun shooting weddings together. 
  • I don't know what I would have done without Karen this year. 
  • I always have a messy bun.
  • I have a pretty standard but awkward progression of shooting positions. 
  • I hold a lot of babies.
  • I might be obsessed with details. 
  • I end all of my sessions with a treat.

2015 has been a busy, but beautiful year full of so many moments that I will remember forever! Here are a few of them documented, so I can continue to enjoy them with such a happy heart!

Tyler and I have a lot of fun shooting weddings together. 

It is such a blessing to photograph weddings with my love. We get to remember our own wedding as we celebrate the marriage of two beautiful people, what could be better! It appears we also really like taking selfies with the bride and groom. I am not sure when this started, but we love getting to celebrate with couples during the day and taking wedding day selfies is just one of those things that we think says, "we love you." You may also find us on the dance floor for a brief moment during at least one song. We used to be good dancers. Now we are parents with dated dance moves and it's hard to dance with all of our equipment, but we can still shake it :).

Pretty sure I'm saying "Don't turn around yet!!" for this first look.

I don't know what I would have done without Karen this year. 

We met through a mutual friend. She was getting started in photography and I was about 9 months into the business. She started assisting during minis and a few newborn sessions (she actually took most of the images here) and I could not have done this year without her!

I always have a messy bun. 

With the exception of one photo, in every single image of me shooting, I have wild woman hair. I like to think that I'm so focused on my clients, that my appearance goes to the bottom of the list of things to worry about. So, I suppose the messy bun has become part of my photographer's uniform!

I have a pretty standard but awkward progression of shooting positions. 

I usually start standing, get into a decent squat, then transition to a hunch that would make a chiropractor cringe, and finish up laying all the way down on the ground in a weird way. I am usually not paying attention to how I am positioned, only to where I need to get the shot. Posture aside, it is pretty funny to me to see these patterns of how I shoot!

I hold a lot of babies. 

I often have to quiet fussy newborns by holding and rocking them, but I have to admit, sometimes I just hold them a few minutes longer because they are magical. Parents often ask if they should calm the baby, but I really love being able to give new parents a break and getting to hold such a little miracle in my arms!

I might be obsessed with details. 

I am a firm believer that a dress should always be fluffed and if you have more than one of a thing, they should all be lined up in a row. It looks like the squat previously mentioned above might be my go to pose in getting details together.

I end all of my sessions with a treat.

Either iced or hot, I always pick up a cup of coffee on my way home from a session. If it's a newborn, it is pretty much always iced because that is a lot of work friends!
