2017 Phone Dump

As I'm slowly wrangling together all of my behind the scenes photos for a lovely end-of-year blog post, I thought it might be fun to just do a "phone dump" of my personal iPhone photos from throughout the year. We have had quite the eventful year as a family and a couple - but more wedding stuff later. ;) 

What I've learned from pulling this together is... I need to take more (and better) photos on my phone in 2018 so I can enjoy the little moments more when I look back on them! 


JANUARY

Highlights:

  • Apparently not much because this is all I have to show for January! I must have been sinking into my "slow season" and avoiding being a photographer. It snowed (I guess?), Butters turned 1 and I started the long process of trying to convince my hairstylist that she could do a modified beehive with my hair for the wedding!

FEBRUARY

Highlights:

  • Kyle built us a deck!

  • We attended the Penn State Dance Marathon (like we do every February) and saw lots of old friends and best friends while raising money for kids with cancer.

  • I had my dress tailored for bridal portraits!

MARCH

Highlights:

  • We had a girls day and got various #resist tattoos! This is my third tattoo, my smallest and my favorite!

  • I had bridal portraits taken at Longwood Gardens.

APRIL

Highlights: 

  • I started my wedding season and was never home as apparent by the complete lack of photos of anything other than Butters.

MAY

Highlights:

  • I was showered in love by the loveliest ladies to celebrate our wedding! (Also, there's two of the same photos of Caity... I apparently just love her that much or wasn't paying attention. ILY C!)

  • Kyle and I took a very short weekend trip to Watkins Glen State Park.

June

Highlights:

  • June was 90% work, 10% beach trips and BBQ's in our back yard. I'm thankful for 100%.

JULY

Highlights: 

  • My best girl gang and I celebrated my last weeks as a bachelorette in Fells Point. There was vomiting, which means I won right? Also, I would be nothing without these women. ILYSM.

  • Butters did more cute things while I worked.

AUGUST

Highlights:

  • We got married! And I have zero photos on my phone of it. Which is good, right?

  • Also we dog sat my puppy brother and hung out with some cool cats.

September

Highlights: 

  • September was busy. I remember just trying to find time to breathe and sleep.

  • We showered Emmy in love before her wedding!

OCTOBER

Highlights:

  • Emily and Andrew got married!

November

Highlights: 

  • I worked pretty much every second of every single day and then we left on our honeymoon so I don't have a whole lot to show for November. It is always my busiest month of the year.

  • Honeymoon pictures are coming in three blog posts really soon! I hope.

December

Highlights: 

  • Remember that thing I said about how I need to take more photos of our personal lives on my phone? Yeah. That.

Alright, it honestly wasn't much but I hope you enjoyed just at tiny peek into what went on during this wonderful year in our loves... at the very least, I hope you enjoyed the bajillion photos of my dog. xoxo

Taylor, Zach & Bodhi | LIFESTYLE

Autumn Susquehanna River lifestyle session in York County, Pennsylvania

I met with Taylor, Zach and their beautiful dog, Bodhi, on Sunday and their session was so sweet. Taylor is possibly the sweetest person you'll ever meet and it was such an honor for me to capture her wrapped up in Zach's love with Bodhi looking on. If you haven't figured it out already, sessions with doggies are always my favorite! Enjoy some of my favorites from their adorable lifestyle session.
