Their laughter, their goofiness, the sweet looks, the serious pose faces…this family was so very fun to photograph! The weather didn’t seem to cooperate with us until we rescheduled the session twice, and then it was THE perfect night for photos. Thank you guys for having me photograph your adorable family! It’s been so fun getting to know you!Morgan Family010Morgan Family015Morgan Family020Morgan Family022Morgan Family023Morgan Family031Morgan Family036Morgan Family044Morgan Family048Morgan Family059Morgan Family061Morgan Family066Morgan Family069Morgan Family079Morgan Family081Morgan Family085Morgan Family089Morgan Family094Morgan Family095Morgan Family102Morgan Family103Morgan Family107

Where to begin about Katie and Jack?! I loved being a part of this wedding day, and it was even more special to me because it was my last one of the year before I take a season off from shooting weddings in order to have more time with my babies. It’s a very bittersweet thing to be posting my last wedding for a while! I first met Katie at Leigh & Nick’s wedding. Katie was the maid of honor with the contagious laugh and bubbly spirit, and was SO excited when she chose me to photograph her wedding day!

I love the words Leigh, my former bride, shared with Katie before heading to the church to get married. She said, “Take a mental picture often throughout the day and take it all in – it goes by SO fast.” Such great advice! Katie and Jack’s wedding day did fly by, and there’s no doubt these two loved every single minute of their day!katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer01katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer02katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer03katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer04katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer05katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer06katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer07katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer08katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer09I’ve never been around a group of bridesmaids with as much enthusiasm and energy as this group! There were whoops and hollers and outbursts of laughter and random toasts all morning long – so fun!katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer10katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer11katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer13And these expressions happened every time a close family member of Katie’s walked into the room! This time was when her mom arrived, looking so stunning. Their reactions to her say it all!!katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer14katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer15katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer16Katie and her mom, both sporting their Jimmy Choo’s:)katie and jack_kansas city wedding photographer19I love this sweet moment between Katie and her grandma.

As the men walked outside to step on the trolly, many squeals of excitement filled the room! The bridesmaids told Katie she shouldn’t look, as she wasn’t supposed to see Jack…what bride could resist checking out her groom?! As her bridesmaids came back in from waving to the guys from the balcony, Katie said, “I didn’t see Jack. Oh he looked SO handsome!” haha!

    Beth - Beautiful photos as always! What a perfect day!

This past year has been one full year. Truly the best and most difficult year of my life. Both the longest and shortest year ever! I can’t help but feel a sense of regret that I didn’t enjoy it more, especially the first 6 months, and yet I know that the best I could do on many days was to simply get through. I remember reading during pregnancy that the first 6 months for twin parents is pure survival mode, and that was absolutely true for us. I hardly remember anything from the first 4 months, as the days and nights were filled with screaming more than anything else, due to Abe and Madeline’s tummy problems. How in the world did we survive??! Only by the grace of God and support and encouragement of friends and family, that’s for sure!!

Before they were born, I really had no idea what it would be like to be a mother. To hold a child (children!) that grew and developed in my tummy – amazing beyond words. And to know God has entrusted ME to be their mother? Wow, what a huge calling and responsibility! I never imagined two babies taking over such a huge part of my heart and bringing me so much joy and laughter. My heart overflows when I look at them, astonished they are mine.

Thank you to Erica at Anecdotally Yours for the great family photos!

056074094112142154I hope to find time this weekend to write a little more about each child, and what life looks like with one year old twins. I’ve been finding it impossible to blog lately (haha, as if you haven’t noticed!), as even the small daily tasks are difficult to accomplish each day…let alone things that aren’t totally necessary! I crave time to get things done each day, but in this season of life I have to be ok with that time being two short naps each day. Maybe someday I will get back into the swing of blogging regularly!

Thank you so much to all of you who have supported us on this journey of being parents to twins; your encouragement and support is what got us through those hard days! Much love!

    Tina - Happy birthday to Abe and Madeline!!!! And a huge CONGRATS to you for surviving year 1!

Photographing a newborn baby will always renew in me a sense of awe for the creation of life. Little baby Jon was born at 5lbs 8oz, and every little part of him is perfection. Even down to his teeny tiny fingernails. How a baby develops like that inside a mother’s womb will always fill me with wonder and praise. It was a great joy to photograph Jon and his beautiful family; he has been blessed with two incredible parents who love him so deeply!

Congratulations, Holly and Brett, and thank you again for having me photograph your new son!
