Rebecca and Jesse were our neighbors for years and years. We had the best snowball fights in the winter, pumpkin carving in the fall, fireworks in the summer and hiking in the spring. Late nights spent doing pranks on our other neighbors, taking long walks around our neighborhood and laughing for hours. We love the Graston’s. Last year they moved a little ways away, to a beautiful farm. They had their first baby and we still miss them living a few doors down. Every now and then we go out to “Grastonia”… shoot guns, go four wheeling, badminton, bbq, and swing on the hammock listening to the peacefulness of farm life.
Their beautiful boy, David turned one this month. I took some photos of this fabulous day! Enjoy! ;D
Happy Birthday David!
Gorgeous Monday evening in a blossoming peach orchard with a beautiful family! Josh, Roseanna and Luke were amazing!
I thought I would share a few photos we took back in December for our Christmas card. I took a few of my Brother, Sister in law, and sweet nephew Káel. They snapped a few of us together.
My dress I’m wearing was my great grandmother best Sunday dress. Isn’t it so lovely?
I hope you enjoy these!

The lovely Hunsbedt family and grandparents…
Christmas is next week! Oh my, I can’t believe it. These last few weeks have been so, so busy. I don’t think I’ve ever been this busy over the holidays ever in my life. We went to Dallas for Thanksgiving and spent quality time with my “other, other in laws” (Which is my Sister in-loves (Jessica Gatlyn) parents!) and my family. We had the best time lounging around, eating, laughing, dancing, singing… oh man! Brandon and I loved it. And then a few days later we hopped on a plane to Ohio, where we were met with a winter wonderland (I thought I was in Narnia). Brandon and I shot my cousin’s lovely winter wedding up by Lake Erie in a little town called Conneaut. Yes, its cold. (like my hat!?) My mom’s whole family is from up North and we stayed in my sweet Grandma’s 100+ year old house. I love visiting her home. I’m filled with childhood memories every time I visit. Its a bitter sweet time for me. It was fun though to be able to introduce Jessica (my sister-in-love) to all our family and let her experience “Up North”and the “Gatlyn/Trutwin” side of life.
I shot a “day after wedding” session with my cousin and her new man. We went to a covered bridge and shot snow photos of them together. I think I had 3 pairs of pants on, 4 shirts, plus a jacket. I was so warm. The only thing that did get cold was my poor little fingers. Jessica and Brandon came as my little “helpers” Jessica saved Christina’s veil from flying off into cliff into a snowy, rushing, icy lake. (She’s a hero) After the session Jessica shot some photos of Brandon and I together as well as some of me. (She should join my team, what do you think?) I love sharing my personal photos with everyone. I know its my family… but I love photographing them. I hope you love these!! MERRRRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!! ho ho ho ho!
Joel and Laura Teel are close friends of mine. I’ve known Joel thirteen+ years and he’s always been a big brother and a dear, dear friend to me and my brother growing up. His character has always been very consistent in our friendship. We shared so much of our childhood and teen years together, that its fun to reminiscence together.
I had the privileged to be able to photograph Joel and Laura’s little girl, Leah Rose. She is a two and a half year old full of energy and life. I would also dare to say she one of the most beautiful little girls I’ve ever seen. Leah kept me on my toes for about an hour and a half, as I chased her with my camera through tall grass and woods at Colonel Francis Beatty Park in Matthews, NC. She would not sit still, not even for a moment. She was always finding leaves, sticks, stones, and flowers to pick up. So adorable.
This was my first time photographing this age, and I was sore the next day from bending up and down and crawling on my hands and knees. I was also able to catch a few portraits of Joel and Laura.
I hope these make you smile.. read more
I think we’ve all been waiting for these photos…
Little Káel is a little over three weeks old now and he’s vibrant, full of personality, so sweet, alert, healthy, handsome, and all boy. I went over to Sam and Jessica’s house yesterday and he was all happy to see his Auntie Rivkah!
