Baby Titus \\ Family

March 23, 2013 \\ Toledo, Ohio

I love my nephews. I have had the privilege of being present for all of their births and I could not be a more proud auntie and sister. (check my twitter & instagram if you don’t believe me).

Nearly one month ago, we all celebrated the birth of my 3rd nephew, Titus Scott Krueger. As I held him for the first time, I was overwhelmed with tears of joy and love for such a special little boy.

“To Titus, my true child in common faith:Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.” Titus 1:4

At the ripe old age of 2, Big brother Ezekiel was SO excited to meet Baby Ti! He loves to help mom and dad take extra special care of his new little brother!

As our family has now grown to 14, we filled the little hospital room with LOTS of love and laughter.

    I am straight-up swooning over these. Particularly that first portrait of Adam and the close-up of just Christine. And the two following the one of just Christine. And the last one. And … all the rest. Good job.

  2. Christine

    I love them so much Benjamin! They are AMAZING! The ones of my cousin Tim and Joel look like they came out of GQ :D lol

Forevermore

ColumbusWeddingPhotography-WHITEDRESSCO20130412-001

March 2013 \\ Columbus, OH \\ The White Dress Co.

First off, Let me inform compel, anyone in the market to be buying a wedding dress, to take a moment right now and open up that link for The White Dress Co‘s website. The dresses are beautiful, the environment is stunning and Jackie, the owner, is dead set on finding you the perfect gown! Secondly, I’d like to express my gratitude for being asked to photograph their grand opening! Not only was it a beautiful event full of love and kindness but it also gave me the chance to make a few new friends, and I can’t wait to see some of the artistic work that we will be able to create together!

Adam + Christine \\ MARRIED

wedding shooting ADAM CHRISTINE Austin Texas20130409-001

April 2013 \\ Austin, Texas \\ Last weekend I had the pleasure of being IN (just a small roll…. BEST MAN!) my friend Adam’s wedding as he married his love, Christine! It was fun to set down my cameras and be involved in other ways but there were times when I just couldn’t help myself… let’s face it, I am a photographer. So here are a few iPhone shots from the wedding, I have a handful of Hasselblad ones being processed as we speak… be sure those will hit the blog as soon as possible too :)

As I was responsible for a toast at Adam and Christine’s reception I took a lot of time to think about these two. I prepared about 3-4 pages of notes and used maybe a sixth of the words I had come up with, major props to all of you best men and maid’s of honor out there… you make it look easy from where I usually sit behind a camera. The one thing that I said that I am proud to echo here on my blog is that I am proud to be their friend and I am blessed and encouraged by their deep, committed, loyal, and beautiful love. I love you guys. Congratulations yet again!
