I had too much fun with this beautiful family. And when I say beautiful, I mean on the inside and out.
Thank you, Morrison Family, for such a fun morning (even through the sweat 😉 ), and for blessing my family and me with the sweet gift of your friendship.
When we lived in California, it was pretty much impossible to throw any kind of get together at our house with a bunch of our family. Many of them came to visit us, but not all at once of course, so the fact that our daughter was graduating from middle school gave me a great excuse to throw a little party and invite our family to come to our home! We still live a couple hours away from most of them, and end of school schedules are so full, but a few of them were able to come, so we celebrated a milestone and I had way too much fun using my daughter’s favorite colors, aqua and red, to put together a dinner with a little vintage taste ;).
My man served up some yummy shredded beef to our guests, and we also had roasted potatoes, strawberries, watermelon, strawberry lemonade, gluten free vanilla cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes (both with homemade buttercream frosting 😉 ), and angel food cake. YUM.
She waited until the end of the party to get ready and come out in her beautiful sparkly dress with her matching pale pink Converse 😉 She has grown up to be such a gorgeous girl, on the inside and the outside.

When my dad asked if I would photograph his wedding, I said yes without hesitation. Then later I started thinking about exactly what this would be like. I would be at my dad’s wedding. Watching him get married. Being a part of this ceremony where he is just beaming and overjoyed, along with his new bride. And I cried. I couldn’t believe my sisters and I would actually would get to experience something like this. Then I started thinking about how I was going to have to experience all of those emotions with my camera in my hand, trying to capture each moment! That proved to be a bit of a challenge, trying to view everything just right through my tear-blurred eyes ;), but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. Such a beautiful day, kissed by a few raindrops, and celebrated by family that love these two so deeply. They are quite amazing, and we couldn’t be more happier for them.
Really… could they be any more adorable??
