Rain, rain, go away

This rain sure has been putting a damper on my scheduled portrait sessions, but I am excited to see the fall colors sprouting up.  I’ve been itching to get out and shoot, so this “hurricane” is driving me bonkers.  I do … Continue reading

Kristin + Josh’s farm Wedding │ Ashland, VA

I have known Kristen for awhile through our horses, and I did some engagement pictures for her and her then-fiance, Josh.  It was such an honor to photograph their wedding last month.  They chose to get married at her parent’s home in Ashland,Virginia.  It was a beautiful setting and they got married underneath a breathtaking archway that her father built, surrounded by trees, and all their loved ones, and their horses in the barn and pasture right behind them.

The wedding color was a pretty aqua, and a lot of the details were homemade, DIY.  I love seeing the visions people have come to life for the final product.  I also thought it was so cool that she used freshly picked flowers from the yard to put in her hair.

I always get a picture of the groom’s reaction as he is watching his bride walk down the aisle for the first time.  I love watching their face, and I love watching the emotion flicker across.

The ceremony was beautiful (and HOT!) and Kristen, of course, had to have a few photos with her horses.  The horses had bowties.  BOW TIES.  HORSE BOW TIES.  Ahhhhh.

I wish Kristen and Josh the best.  Thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your special day!

It has been a busy summer/fall season for me.  I’ve learned a ton of new tricks and have been trying to play around with new techniques.  It’s been fun!  But my poor, poor neglected blog, ha.  Also had this awesome lady come visit me and help me second shoot a wedding!  We’re such goobers… took this photo in a mirror after the wedding reception.  I wish she lived closer to me so I had a permanent photo buddy!

Here are a couple photos from some weddings I’ve been keeping myself busy with this fall.  I love photographing weddings.  I love seeing people so happy and I love being able to capture memories from one of the happiest days of their lives.

Sunday mornings

Finally the weekend!  Can I get a hallelujah?!  We had a long, boring week at home.  The good news is that our kitchen, living room and laundry room are no longer a construction zone!  Hopefully the rest of the house will soon be done and we can get back to life as we know it.  I am already dying to spring clean and get some major organization done, but it’s pretty pointless at this point with things being shuffled back and forth between rooms while waiting for the floors to be completed. But soon!

Took some photos this morning while hubby spent time making pancakes and turkey bacon for breakfast.  Kellan spent his time smearing it all over his face and chair, then finally dropping pieces for the ever-hopeful dogs. No where else in the world I would rather be. ❤

“I can’t remember all the times I try to tell myself to hold on to these moments as they pass…”

I took little Trent’s 6 month photos last weekend.  His parents have opted to take advantage of my Baby’s First Year package, which includes a photo session at birth, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months old.  I SO enjoy the babies I am lucky enough to photograph on a regular basis.  I love watching them grow up and I love knowing that years from now, they will be looking back on these photos… showing them to their kids… their grandchildren.  I personally love looking at old family photos, so I am glad this trend of having family memories professionally documented has taken off.

My own little man turned 9 months TODAY!  It is so crazy how time flies.  He is standing (holding onto something), crawling, sounding out words (BAAAAAAA for “ball”, CCCCCCCC for “cat”, etc.), knows how to give high fives, kisses (sloppy and open mouth, but still adorable, nonetheless), loves showing his muscles with a loud grunt, already shakes his head no at me, waves “hi” and “bye”, and he LOVES food.  My goodness, does this child love food.  We lovingly refer to him as the “garbage disposal”.  I swear this kid could out eat any of us.  He’s got two bottom teeth, and yesterday I noticed two top ones that will soon make their appearance.  Hopefully soon, so he will sleep a little better.

Anyways!  I will try to get some pictures of him taken today.  In the meantime, here’s a couple of shots from my session with baby Trent.  You can see more on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/colombophotography
