Writing Down Memories & Taking Pictures

We are currently in PA visiting with family and we have had so much fun looking through Kristin’s baby books, laughing at pictures, and reading about memories. Too often after the excitement wears off the joy and happiness still remains but the details of the beautiful memories are lost. As we read through Kristin’s baby book there were so many details that made the birth story and growth special. We too are trying to keep record of Stella’s growth and important “firsts” that take place (her first smile, her first noise (other than crying), her first time sleeping through the night!!! haha) so we decided to start a separate category on our blog just for Stella!

We also feel that we are so fortunate to be able to take pictures of our Stella all day long and document her story. That is also why we love wedding photography…we feel so honored to be able to document one of the most special days in the life of the bride and groom. We realized after our wedding that it wasn’t just about pictures, but about having the right photographer there who we knew could capture the special moments of our day and provide images that reflected the beauty of our wedding.

To all the parents and all the soon to be married couples….write down you memories and go take some pictures!

This is so true! I Live off of good memories :) because i just dont want to miss or forget anything special or significant in my life since some things only happen once….. Marrying the love of your life for instance! ;) stella is gonna have the best photo album(s) when she grows up! Haha such a beauty!

A Grateful Husband and Dad

So I know Kristin usually blogs, but I think it’s okay if I (Jeremy) do that once in a while, haha.

The past 10 weeks since the arrival of our precious Stella have been the most amazing weeks of our lives. I never could have imagined that one little girl could bring so much joy and happiness into our lives. From the minute she wakes up til the time she falls asleep, she is so happy and always smiling. Most people don’t believe us when we say that, but it’s true! She really is the happiest baby ever.

Recently, I have been overwhelmed with how “lucky” (we all know it’s more than luck) Stella is to have such an amazing mother like Kristin. I know Stella is too little to realize, but Kristin’s love and devotion toward her is the most genuine and unfailing love a mother could ever give. She soothes her when she’s sad, feeds her when she’s hungry, and holds her when she’s lonely. Yes, sometimes Stella has to fuss or cry for a few seconds to tell us what’s going on, but she is sooo happy once her mommy comes to the rescue.

It has reminded me about God’s love for his children. It is the purest form of love one will ever experience. God’s grace and mercy are showered down upon us everyday and most times we are too “little” to understand it. And although God already knows what we need and desire, He loves when we tell Him so He can provide for us.

I am so grateful that Kristin is such an amazing woman and beautiful mother. She reminds me everyday how to love. And even more importantly I am grateful for my Savior who loved me so much He was willing to die on a cross for me and come to my rescue.

Here are a few instagram pics from the last few weeks:

j & k, this is more than mere happiness — it is JOY unspeakable, which we all know comes from the Lord. because you both exude this joy all the time, it is no surprise that stella already has it — it’s in her DNA!

Laura & Jose | Fort Worth Wedding | Rose Chapel

What a great way to start our first wedding in 2012 with Laura and Jose’s wedding at the Rose Chapel in Fort Worth. Both Laura and Jose are a ton of fun to be around and their day was perfect!  Both Laura and Jose recently graduated from college in December and what a better way to celebrate graduation than to get married. Laura is an artist and even has an Etsy shopselling eco -friendly hand dyed yarns. Jose and Laura met while they were in college and they are so adorable together; we truly hope you enjoy looking through these images as much as we have.

 

Love love love her dress from Aria Bridal & Formal.

The ceremony and reception were held at the historic Rose Chapel in Fort Worth.

This is so cool! According to the minister, in Hispanic culture they often exchange coins in addition to vows and rings. For Jose, the coins represent his hard work for Laura and for Laura they represent her promise to stewardship and support! How cool…

Gorgeous!

Favorite!

Thanks to Shauna from Shauna Nicole Photography for all her help.

Stella’s First Picture. Ever.

We just realized we never shared Stella’s first picture with you all! Although it may not be the most glamorous moment of Stella’s life it truly does mark the beginning of our little girl! So here you have it…the very very very first picture we ever snapped of our little girl! This is Stella at about 90 seconds old… (Stella please forgive us one day for posting this, but you are just so cute!).

Blogstomp | 2012 Game-changer

So as 2011 came to an end we realized 2012 is going to be different. It needs to be different. We are nearing our goal for number of weddings booked and with the addition of our precious little Stella Grace we need to find ways to save time…because time is money right? Well time is at least…time.

We have always heard amazing things about Blogstomp. Blogstomp is basically an “action” in Photoshop that adds the nice little white border to your images, places your logo on the bottom, and saves your image, all in one fast click! We tweaked ours just a little to add a thin gray border on the outside and we have a certain folder we save all these pictures in, but it really  is that simple!

If you are a fellow photographer spending hours resizing images for your blog, you should seriously consider purchasing Blogstomp. It was only $29 and it will save you hours of resizing!

Happy Tuesday!

Wow — thanks so much for the write-up! We’re so glad BlogStomp is a good fit for you!

I finally purchased it too, but I paid $46 with a discount code…So lucky you! I tried other programs, but Blogstomp was the winner.

I intended to compose you the tiny observation so as to thank you so much as before for your personal splendid tricks you have provided on this website. This is quite pretty generous of you in giving without restraint what many people could possibly have offered for sale as an e book to get some profit for their own end, even more so now that you might well have tried it in the event you considered necessary. Those creative ideas in addition acted like a good way to be sure that the rest have a similar fervor similar to mine to understand great deal more regarding this matter. Certainly there are several more pleasant situations in the future for folks who take a look at your blog.
