this handsome little man reminds me of my youngest.  right down to the charming sweet grin.  and I had to catch it fast… because in typical adorable little boy fashion, the next shots I got were of his other fun faces…

I cannot get over how amazing these two cuties’ eyes are… The blueness… the eyelashes… precious!!  I could also not get over how GOOD they were!  Even the tiny sweet girl cooperated with everything we asked of her… This brother and sister are just so very sweet, as you can see… LOVE my job ;-).

The first thing I notice on someone is their eyes.  Its the first thing that attracted me to my husband… he has incredible eyes ;-).  Eyes are just amazing to me — full of life, shining, showing emotion, showing a glimpse of what is inside…  This girl has some of the most gorgeous eyes, and I loved capturing them.  I had a hard time deciding between this image and another image I recently took of a darling little girl with sweet, sweet eyes, but the other is a black and white, and the bright blue in her eyes here with her aqua shirt and auburn hair made me post this one ;-).

You really must go see all the stunning eyes over at I Heart Faces!  I’m going to go spend some time there now ooing and ahhing over them all…

    I have to agree that the shirt just sets off those eyes big time! Very striking!

This couple has a very touching story.  She is a cancer survivor.  He does great things in his community and with the Boy Scouts.  Together, I have no doubt they will do amazing things and share a love with those around them even bigger than the love they share on their own.

I loved all the yummy colors!  There was a citrus-y theme and it was so bright and cheery.

Melissa, you are simply gorgeous.  And it was obvious that your dad is bursting with pride for you…

One of my favorites from the day…

The ceremony and reception was held at the Historic Seven Sycamores Ranch near Visalia, CA.  I love this ranch — it is seriously breathtaking and SO relaxing… It is not only a perfect place for weddings, they also have a bed and breakfast that you must check out if you are in the area.

Yes, I think these girls know how to have some fun.

Hello, lovely sunlight…

Such a gorgeous evening.  Such an inspiring couple.  Congratulations, Melissa and Thomas!
