My darling Hollye — my sparkling, adventurous, beautiful friend — is marrying her French beau tomorrow.
I couldn’t be happier to celebrate these two and from the looks of the smiles all over their faces I’d venture to say they couldn’t be happier either.
She’s here — our darling daughter, Juniper Clementine, arrived at the end of last month. We are absolutely smitten. I have been soaking up each and every precious, snuggly moment with her during my maternity leave, hence the radio silence on the blog. But don’t worry, I’ll be back to shooting again full time in mid-November. In the meantime if you’d like a peek into my day to day with our Juni feel free to hit me up on Instagram: @jillian_zamora_photo. This photo was taken when she was just two days old and my-oh-my how much she’s grown already.
The morning of Caroline and Anthony’s wedding went by in a blur but when he waited for her at the end of the church hallway it truly felt like things slowed down. Where there had been rushing around minutes before, there was a quiet, sweet anticipation.
I love first looks.
I love that it slows things down.
I love that it makes certain that there is time set aside for nice, long extended hugs like this one.
Poor Anthony was wiping red lipstick off his face from this moment until the send-off at the end of the evening — he just couldn’t keep himself from kissing that beautiful bride of his.
Here I shall list some things that are bizarre:
- feeling like you’ve been going non-stop since April and waking up one day and there being no. more. editing. for you to do becauuuuuuuuse . . .
- you’re LESS THAN TWO WEEKS out from your due date with your first baby . . .
- so blogging a lifestyle newborn session and knowing that it’s going to be y-o-u in a short matter of time having your baby girl’s newborn photos taken and seeing your husband turn into a dad right before your eyes — well, let’s just say there are a whole lot of feelings being felt in my office this morning.
Lauren and Lee, thank you for inviting me into your home to document those earliest days with sweet baby Scout. I can’t believe how much she’s grown since we’ve taken these photos. It’s been beautiful watching the two of you become parents, the three of you become a family.
