I was able to meet Lisa & David during the winter for their engagement session.  Despite the cold snow, Lisa’s high heels and bare legs, and a stiff wind off the lake, Lisa & David smiled with a warmth that obviously came from inside of their hearts.  These two have a genuine friendship and true love.  Lisa has effortless style… and good taste (LOOK AT HER WEDDING SHOES!!!).  The wedding was a day full of emotion and soul.  The rain couldn’t even put a damper on their spirits!  Thank you Lisa & David for allowing me to be a part of these moments that you will remember for a lifetime.

These three girlies warmed my heart.  Well, they WARM my heart still when I look at these photos.  One of my favorite things I noticed about the girls is that they had personality.  They had joy.  They had little mosquito bites on their legs and a few scrapes on their knees which are the marks of any happy childhood.  It really reminded me of the old days with my own sister.  Dear memories.

Because Crystal and Cole lived out of town, I showed up at the wedding in Indianapolis having never met either of them face to face.  Of course, Crystal was always easy to talk to over the phone and super nice, but I showed up with a blank slate.  The first thing I noticed is that on her wedding day, Crystal was busy helping everyone else… fixing hair, walking around making sure everything was ok.  She was calm and cool as a cucumber!  Needless to say, I was and am impressed by her composure and obvious care for everyone else’s needs.

So the story goes that Cole saw Crystal at a resort on vacation and promptly told her and her friend that he was going to marry her.  Stunned (and a little creeped out!! haha) she and her friends wrote him off as some sort of crazy guy… but the routine eventually turned from crazy to cozy because here they are… married at last!  Now it just tells like a true romance… love at first sight.  Perfect.

I love the navy blue accents coupled with cotton candy pink and plenty of bling at this wedding.  The ceremony & reception were held at the Mavris Art Center in Indianapolis, and on a side not, I would completely recommend this stunning venue.  The service was impeccable, the food delicious, and the atmosphere left nothing to be desired.

I don’t know about you, but most Mondays I start out the day a little sleepy:)  There’s nothing like a dose of cuteness to get me pepped up for the week!  On an adorable-ness scale of 1-10, these two would have to rank at 15!  It was fun chasing them around their backyard trying to capture their smiles and the twinkle in their blue eyes.  It was also completely touching to see how much this little brother and sister truly loved each other.

I am recently the proud mommy of a new puppy.  Ok, I know (as my 2 year old nephew reminded me yesterday) I’m not REALLY his mommy.  But with the poodle female parent now out of the picture, this human is ready to step in.  My sweet Scotchy (see him above) has me in a maternal mood.

SO- I thought is was the perfect time to blog the second part of Sabrina’s maternity session… this time in digital.  You can see the film photos and read a little more about my beautiful pregnant sissie here: http://kinawicks.com/blog/?p=2186  I just know after this post, I’m going to have a line of angry husbands because of all the estrogen filled emotions I am causing (and having! haha).

XO!
