Happy 40 years of BLISSFUL marriage MOM AND DAD :)

Today marks a VERY important day to me… Today September 15th, 1973 marks the year my parents got married. (I was born 10 years later ๐Ÿ˜‰ but now that I am a wedding photographer I love looking at my Mom’s wedding album and seeing her awesome lace dress, and the “quintesential” cut the cake photos, my Dad in his classic bow tie and huge plastic rimmed glasses. This was the begining of their journey as husband and wife, but how my Mom and Dad first started dating… that was when my Dad used a pick up line… the professor told them to study the female fetal pig anatomy and the male pig anatomy… my Dad asked my Mom “Can I see your female parts?” YEP that happened. AND the rest is history. My parents strong love and marriage gave me hope to find a man who would love me unconditionally just as my Dad loved my Mama. I have so many memories of them teaching me love, and how to live. I like looking back on the old slides that my Dad photographed and seeing photos of my Mom solo, I like how my Dad always asks my Mom if she’d like a drink when he gets himself one, I like how they laugh together, my Mom ALWAYS laughs at my Dad’s jokes, they travel together, and have a sense of adventure together. I remember my Mom and Dad dancing to “I love beach music” while my Mom was vacuming when I was younger. I remember my Mom ironing Dads clothes to teach in, I remember Dad cooking and cleaning the kitchen. Now I take snapshots of Pete, offer him things when I get myself something, iron his clothes, laugh at his jokes, and experience the world with him. Yes, they taught me how to love. I am so grateful for that and today I wish the TWO BEST PARENTS IN THE WORLD a HAPPY HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Here’s to 40 years, CHEERS, I love you both MORE than a WHOLE herd of elephants, Love Wonkybaby
XOXOXO

Maternity, One Day Old and a Newborn Session

When Camile told me that her, Trae and soon to be big brother Ohren were expecting I was super excited for them. See… not only is Camile a “hair magician”, Trae is super talented with a paintbrush and Ohren is one of the kindest kids I know. I knew that their little miss — Oracle Lavendar would have a incredible little personality and be beautiful too. YEP… she lived up to my expectations. She is gorgeous, and I think she likes having her photo taken already. Just see the story unfold through photos below …

Cody and Tara’s Atlanta Braves Baseball and Swanky Vintage Engagement Session

This couple was all in for my idea to embrace their love of baseball. Cody really really really likes— scratch that Cody is obsessed and adores the Atlanta Braves!!! Which I don’t blame him, have you ever been to a Braves baseball game? One word!!! FUN comes to mind. Tara and him had the cutest shirts made for part one of their engagement session, then came part two. I was UBER impressed with how fast Tara changed her hair do and style, she went from cute sassy baseball loving gal, to the classiest, elegant, pearl loving, bird cage wearing lady in a flash. It was awesome. I love these photos … Look and you will see why ๐Ÿ™‚

Mrs. Break the Mold Photo gets Eyelash Extensions

Mandi at Salon Prive’ is AMAZING!!! I believe all brides should see her for wedding day services, she provides a variety of services ranging from facials, to waxing, to eyelash extensions. I was privileged enough to spend a morning with her while she installed the lashes on me. The installation (hahaha) took about two hours and then when I left, the comments came pouring in. The first place I stopped on the way home the starbucks barista said “Your eyelashes are incredible”, while picking up at cami at Buckle, the male clerk said your eyelashes are so long and beautiful… not once did ANYONE ask if they were fake. They felt real too. I felt so beautiful and most days dont wear any extra make up at all. These are so different than eyelashes applied with glue to the skin because they look authentic, and so realistic in photographs. I have some photos of me below for you to see. Call Mandi to set up a appointment, in my opinion she is the best WAXER in town and does great EYELASHES. Thanks Mandi, Im still feeling pretty. Call her for questions or to set up a appointment today 865-474-0946
