I have watched this family evolve over the course of 5 years or so now and I love the smiles we caught on their morning. And by "caught", I mean quite literally "caught". Ms. Amelia is an apple that doesn't fall far from her brother's tree and when he was her current age, he was on. the. run! Amelia is also in a stage that she loves being within her Mama's shadow, so with some Grandma and Grandpa Help, we snuck in some engagement photos of Melissa & Ryan for their New Year's Eve wedding!! So, every smile we caught was an incredible victory in my photographic "Win" Book! 

After their quick trip around the green with Grandma and Grandpa, Jaxon and Amelia joined us again with Ava, their adorable schnauzer! A quick outfit change and the kiddos really let loose and showed me they were super comfortable with where we were. And I was super thankful! 

Ms. Amelia-you are a gorgeous little lady! With spunk and vivacity that will carry you far in life! Jaxon, you are such a wonderful older brother and a bonefide little gentleman!

Melissa + Ryan: I'm so excited to see how your day comes together for New Year's Eve! I know you've jumped through a lot of hurdles and have faced some challenges along the way, but I now you know that it's worth every minute when you find the One your heart desires. Thank you so much for having me be a part of the adventure.
