madeline is two!

Remember these eyes from a couple of years ago?

Now...she's two! I photographed Madeline last weekend, along with her big brother Jackson, for her two year pictures and boy - did I work for it! :) She's an active two! :) I chased and chased her, but I think it was worth it! :)

Those eyelashes are to die for! Don't you think?

She wasn't very happy for photos this day, but her beautiful eyes and those pouty lips are so perfect any day! :)

Only Jackson knows the way to her heart...

mandy+rushton - engaged!

You never get anything...unless you ask for it.

Our bride-to-be Mandy had her heart set on a vintage engagement shoot. She had her outfit planned, Rushton's (her fiance) suspenders picked out. All she needed was a vintage car. 

Driving down the road here in Augusta, she saw the most beautiful Candy Apple Red 1947 Pontiac. She told her mom, "THAT is exactly the car I want for my pictures." Just a few minutes later, they ended up sitting right next to said beautiful car at a traffic light. Mandy rolls down her window and just asked the guy sitting next to her in traffic if she could use his car for her engagement pictures! To her surprise - he said yes! Lesson learned.

It should be illegal to have such classic beauty :)...

These two are ridiculously cute together. Rushton is such a great guy to have agreed to a themed shoot. A real keeper, right Mandy? :)

One of my favorite headshots EVER.

At first, I was worried about the wind, but then, I think we embraced it :)...

This one is so JCrew huh? I love that classic style...

One of my favorites from the day...followed by one of my favorite pictures in the history of H+D.

the norris family...

Anyone who knows Mr. Tommy would say he is determined. He knows what he wants and he gets it! Mr. Tommy had been trying to get this session going for almost a year now! We scheduled and rescheduled for reasons like: the weather, broken arms, and unfortunately, a missing eyebrow. If every family wanted pictures as bad as this dad, we would be busy non-stop :). He even had props! 
We loved it!

We finally got together last weekend for a family session, with Mr. Tommy, his lovely wife - Mrs. Cindy, and their boys - Chandler and Adam. And not to mention, - their (or HIS as everyone else in the family says) goats - Bill and Hillary. :) 

Yes. That boar head is real. 
and one for grins and giggles :) - I'm not sure if this is Bill or Hillary. Hilarious all the same :).

Take some advice from the Norris Family moms and dads: Don't wait until your kids are older because you think it will be easier to take family pictures then. Life happens and your kids are all of a sudden busier than you! :) Take advantage of THIS time in your family and get some photographs of your family at whatever stage of life they are in!

She Likes Art, He Likes Music. - Vol. 3

D here!  Let me begin by acknowledging the folks who have complained that this "weekly feature" of our blog has yet to become "weekly".  Yeah, we're sorry about this.  It was perhaps too ambitious of us to think that we could post that many music and art finds that would warrant our mention. 
 So, unless it's just a good couple of weeks, this feature is now monthly.  There, fixed it.

Medeski, Martin & Wood is one of my favorite jazz acts!  Funky and smooth.  Put John Scofield into the mix and things really get good.  I'm posting this at the risk of being forever considered a "dirty hippie", since my last post was of hippie-approved Phish.  But oh well.  Enjoy some jazz people!

Haley couldn't decide what she wanted to post this time, yes, she is lame...
She apologizes for being so lame...

Courtney + Brett were married last weekend up at the grounds of Wisteria Hills Plantation. It had been a long time coming for this couple since they've been dating since high school! They are so cute together and were so excited for their day to finally be here... Here's a sneak peak at just a few of moments from the day...

I'm in love with this image. Thank you D.

Behind the ceremony spot was a huge butterfly bush, attracting hundreds of butterflies - so we had to get at least one shot for good measure :)...

These image was a part of Courtney + Brett's "first look" - which I adore! First there were tears, then the laughter came as all the nerves were getting out in the open :)

These two are just a perfect pair... I love when people find someone who really makes them a better person... It's such a sweet kind of love...

Courtney's dress was incredible....

The rings...atop the hankie of Courtney's Grandma...

Awesome bouquets and boutonnières - I'm gonna find out who did them and get back to you on that one...

And then - the dance party commences :)

There are so many more to share...but not enough space...Full gallery to come!
