Holly & Paul’s fabulous Wychmere Beach Club wedding took place a few weekends ago, before the crazy heat wave. Instead, theirs was a quintessentially perfect Cape Cod day. Sunny, blue skies, not too hot and drrrryyyyyy, which for this sweaty gal is all I need to make for an amazing day!

Making it even more special was the fact that Holly & Paul are wonderful people and a perfect pairing!! We first met Holly eight plus years ago, at the wedding of her sister, Michelle. And, we’ve had the pleasure of seeing her a few times since for family portraits on the Cape. Paul is a bit of a newcomer to our Bello family, although he & Holly have known each other for quite some time now. You can read more about them and their road to love HERE.

And, we can get right to what folks come here for….the photos!

I am completely in LOVE with Holly’s crazy beautiful Amsale wedding gown. There are few gowns I don’t love, but hers was something I would totally love to wear and am seriously considering getting married again so I can!! The tulle and lace detailing on the front was absolutely stunning and so beautifully feminine. And, on Holly…..it was perfection!!!

Some more room details in the beautiful Wychmere suites…such great rooms to photograph in…loveeee me a white background! And, Holly’s adorable Kate Spade shoes that perfectly complimented the belt on her dress. LOVE!

I mean….come on!!!! Is she gorgeous or what? Her hair by Fisher Experience and dress gave such an Audrey Hepburn vibe to me. And, the gorgeous flowers with blush peonies (in AUGUST no less….WOW!) by the fabulous Lilac Florals were the perfect compliment.

One word…..STUNNING!

Holly’s crazy cute nieces, Mackenzie and Cameron, are regulars in front of our cameras and two of the sweetest little peanuts there ever were. Mackie was seriously busting some killer moves later in the night and having the time of her life late into the night. Such wonderful memories of their Auntie’s special day!

Adorable little flower girls…

Waiting for her dad….

John is one of the nicest guys on the planet and seeing him see his baby girl ready to marry her dream guy was just delightful…

And off to the church she goes, with her gal pals in tow. Such a fun bunch!!

Meanwhile, in another area of the resort, Paul gets ready with his mates…

Including little brother and best man extraordinaire, Tommy.

Mackie & Cammie’s little brother, Will was also in the wedding party…though he seemed more interested in his dad’s phone. Can we talk about the linen suit and the saddle shoes for just a second???? Paired with a matching Vineyard Vines tie…same as the groomsmen were wearing. It’s just too much cuteness.

The guys are ready to go….

Preparing to enter the ceremony at Our Lady of Annunciation in Dennisport. Despite Cammie & Mackie’s best efforts, they cannot convince their cousin, Kinsley, that being a flower girl is really fun..ADORABLE!

Here comes the bride…

The hand off…

Love the storytelling going on in this next one….how Holly is holding onto Paul and her sister, Michelle, and how Paul’s lovely momma, Anne Marie is wiping tears in the background. So much love & pride! Just wonderful!

Sandwiched between her grandparents, Susan & John, Mackie looks on with intense curiosity as her Auntie Holly and soon-to-be Uncle Paul say, “I do!”

The look of love…

More love & happy faces….

And with a kiss, he & she become WE….

woooo hoooo…..

LOVE the happiness written all over their beautiful faces….

The timeless quality of this next lovely moment makes my heart purr.

This is why I love living and working where we do. Viva Cape Cod!!

Happy kisses…

And snuggling beneath the veil….soooo much happy!!!!!

We did it…..we’re married!!! It’s a moment that hits every couple after they say, “I do!” And, it’s one you just never forget.

A field of green beach grass + a bride & groom and their posse = Cape Cod wedding perfection

Holly & Paul sailed into their cocktail hour…talk about a grand entrance. LOOVE it!

And so did their friends & family…

Yeeeeeaaaahhhh!!!

It was a bit windy even in the harbor…..but that just meant they had to hold on tight, which is always a good thing.

Smiles and sailboats and sunny skies, oh my!

Waving to family & friends as they dock….now, let’s get this party started!

It’s been so fascinating for us to see how much things have changed in terms of the way folks photograph at weddings. When we first started you rarely saw a camera, and I suppose that’s still the case today, but now we see LOTS of phones and iPads and while it’s great that people can capture these fun moments, I love seeing people put down their phones and really being present in the moment. Just look at how different the faces are without a phone in front of them.

Blush-a-liciousness.

I think this is my favorite color palette at the moment…so stinking pretty.

Seats for the stars of the day….

Guests enjoying themselves during cocktail hour.  I just love documenting these candid moments.

More happy….

Happily ever hashtaged…

Mr. & Mrs.

Love this moment when a couple is introduced to their reception…so much fun energy, so much love & support. It’s just wonderful!

And right into their first dance…still smiling and basking in the glory of all the love & support.

More love & support, and some playful teasing came during the speeches…first up, MOH Michelle….love her!!!

Bridesmaid Emily giggles during the speeches….so cute!

Tommy’s speech was part loving tribute, part roast, and everyone ate it up….

Though none more so than big brother, Paul!

Ready to get rowdy….friends enjoying themselves on the dance floor.

And bridesmaid Catherine tore it up best with this awe-inspiring split that her friends were definitely digging….

A little Photo Booth fun….

Our newlyweds….ready to start this next happy chapter in their lives together.

Holly & Paul, thank you both so very much for inviting us to share in this wonderful day with you, your families and super sweet friends!! Getting to be there to document all of the beautiful details, the super fun celebration and most especially the inspiring love you both have for each other and those closest to you was such a treat!! We adore you and hope these photos (and the MANY more soon to follow) serve as happy reminders for many, many long, love-filled years to come!!

With big love & hugs, Christine & Andy xoxoxo

PS…We’d also like to give a special shout out to wedding planner extraordinaire Allison Liset and her incredible team (Sheri, Megan & Kim)at Elegant Engagements, who saved the day by running out to Macy’s to buy a suit for Holly’s brother Paul, because his didn’t make it. Don’t ask! You ladies rocked it and kept things running smoothly all day!! Love working with you all! xoxo

Maureen Donnelly (Todd’s Mom) : You take such beautiful pictures. I loved looking at the wedding pics that I was able to view. Especially, I loved the pics of my son's family from last fall. Maureen Donnelly

It’s hard to believe it’s been seven years since we photographed Aimee & Rick’s Ridge Club wedding. Happily, we’ve kept in touch and have been able to get them back in front of our cameras a few times over the years. One of my favorite sessions was three years ago, when I photographed them as they welcomed their baby girl, Tess, into the world.

I love me some quality baby time, so getting to photograph Tess just a few weeks after she made her way into the world was a real treat! Click HERE for a look.

I remember after our session, Aimee looked forward to the time when they’d have another baby for us to photograph. Baby number two came a little over a year and a half later. Sadly, it was to be some time before we’d get to photograph baby Brooks. He had a rough start to life, having to endure several surgeries to repair a cleft palate.

As difficult as it no doubt was for sweet little Brooks, I’m sure it was absolutely torturous for Aimee, having to watch her sweet boy be wheeled into the operating room more times than any mother should have to.

Happily, Brooks is on the mend, and although he still has more surgeries ahead of him, he is a happy, healthy, sweet, playful, delightful little boy, who is very much adored by his big sister.

We got to finally meet Brooks two weeks ago, when we got together with the whole family while they were vacationing on the Cape. Our gathering took place at The Spit, the same spot where we first photographed Aimee & Rick for their engagement session. It was a lovely full circle moment for us. Here’s a peek at our time together.

All grown up at three, Tess strikes a pose that had us in stitches…which she and her little brother seemed to enjoy. Love these little munchkins.

Brooks plays with his Dada and is all smiles…..big, beautiful, delicious smiles!

Happy, curious little Brooksy.

Andy has a way with kids that has always been something I’ve loved about him. Seeing these photos he captured while playing with Tess just about made my heart explode. Look at how enchanted she is with him….

I don’t know what he said or did to get these reactions (and there were a couple more in the series that were equally as delicious!), but I LOVE it!! And, from the looks of things, so did Tess!

A little beachside stroll with Dad….that look….too much!!!

Playful, lovely, gorgeous Tess….the way children smile lights my heart on fire!

While the kids play, mom & dad take a minute for a little snuggle time. Yaaaay for enduring bello love!

Such a sweet family…..

Be still my heart…..

I often will use reverse psychology on kids….telling them NOT to look at me or my camera when I feel like I’m losing their attention. Well, Tess LOOVED this game, and kept shouting, “IIIIIII’mmmmmm lookin’ at you!!!!” which was cracking us both up and making her baby brother wonder what the heck she was shouting about. The results….adorable! I knew those college psych classes would come in handy eventually.

After all the formal stuff was done, it was time to play in the water…and Brooks was loving it!

While the boys played in the waves, I got the girls in front of the camera for a little one-on-one time. Moms & their daughters…..one of the most complicated, intensely loving and utterly important relationships that ever existed. These photos make me miss mine and envy my sister for the two sweet daughters she has!

And, no better way to finish the evening than with a little skinny dipping. Baby bums are my fave…that and a little peek-a-boo.

And, with that, we said goodnight to this lovely family! Aimee & Rick, thank you so much for letting us be a part of documenting this next happy chapter in your life. We LOOOOVED meeting Brooks and getting to see you and Tess again! Your kids are just delightful and we’re so thrilled that Brooks is doing well and seems completely unphased by everything he’s been through in his short life. We hope these photos help celebrate this milestone for Brooks and for your whole family! He’s a resilient little trooper and we cannot wait to see him continue to blossom in the years to come!! Love you all to pieces and feel so grateful to have you all in our lives! Big hugs, Christine & Andy xoxo

janee gay : Wonderful photographer, beautiful family all make for PERFECTION. Thank You jgb

We’ve been photographing weddings for a long time now….14 years, actually, which is hard to believe. Even after all of these years, I am still in awe of the power of love!

The real joy for me is seeing how love presents itself in so many different ways. Sometimes it’s quite and reserved and harder to see, and, other times, it’s so big and in your face, it nearly knocks you over. I must admit, I tend to love big myself, so I am more affected by this kind of love.

But, even for me, the love shared between Jenn & Jordan came as something of a surprise….a wonderful, glorious, inspiring, this-is-something-to-celebrate kind of surprise. In fact, it moved me in such a way that I’ve struggled with how to really do it justice in this post….and it’s taken me longer than I like or expected to compose my thoughts and craft words that would honor Jenn & Jordan and their beautiful love.

Sorry Jenn & Jordan, but you guys are just too freaking awesome, what can I say?!! And, Jenn…..after your vows, which completely blew me away (and everyone else in attendance)….I just didn’t know how to follow that!

But….I’ll try.

If you’re a regular visitor to this blog, you probably remember Jenn & Jordan, and how I gushed about them back in May, when we got together for their engagement session. Andy & I had been looking forward to photographing them since first meeting months earlier. And, watching them together in front of our cameras confirmed everything we expected….such sweetness, silliness, complete adoration and oodles of love. Still, nothing could have prepared us for what was to come.

Yes, the details were stunning. The flowers were gorgeous, the bride a vision and the setting could not have been more perfect. But, the love….oh, man, the LOVE! It was overwhelmingly beautiful, and getting to be there and be a part of it was truly a gift! Their Chatham Bars Inn wedding gave new depth and meaning to the vows so many take, perhaps without really thinking about them. For Jenn & Jordan, they had already begun living their vows before they spoke them to each other with such sweet sincerity.

An outsider looking in would have no idea that just a few weeks earlier Jenn was diagnosed with Stage III Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. A second opinion reduced it to Stage II, but doctors still wanted to start treating Jenn aggressively…and right away.

She had surgery to put in a port and began treatment. At about that same time, Jenn’s grandmother passed away, with Jenn at her side. The stress of seeing her granddaughter suffering and her daughter (Jenn’s amazing mom, Mary) beside herself with worry proved too much for her failing heart.

All of this might make some question whether to go ahead with the wedding, but not Jenn & Jordan. Their love cannot be denied and besides, “for better or worse” had already begun for them.  Plus, if you’re lucky enough to know Jenn & Jordan you know they are two of the most lovely, kind, wonderful, loving, positive people you could ever hope to meet. And although they’re not the type to complain, they and those who love them most all needed something to celebrate, a break from the cloud that hung over them and a chance to focus on all that beautiful LOVE.

And, focus on love they did….in a big, beautiful, someone-pass-me-a-tissue kind of way!!!

Watching them together, pledging their hearts to one another, when “in sickness and in health” had more meaning than it does for most was truly a gift. Couples like Jenn & Jordan are why we do what we do. Getting to document that kind of love….the kind that makes you a better person just for being around it….is just the coolest thing!

So, without further ado…we’ll let the love do the talking….and invite you to share in the joy that was Jenn & Jordan’s wedding day.

Jenn gets the finishing touches on her hair, while her soon-to-be mother-in-law, Linda, and sister-in-law, Jackie, look on with all smiles.

You can tell how wonderful Jenn & Jordan are by the company they keep. Days after finding out about Jenn’s diagnosis and the treatment she would soon be undergoing, Jenn’s friends secretly rallied and started a Go Fund Me page to help with the unexpected slew of medical expenses, figuring too that Jenn would likely have to miss work while she focused on her health.

Within just a few days, their friends raised thousands of dollars. Click HERE if you want to help too. They surprised Jenn by gathering together at her mom’s house to show her a book they’d put together with photos and messages of love & support. And, the last page highlighted the secret fundraising website, which left Jenn unusually speechless and in a puddle of happy tears.

But that wasn’t all. After the wedding, an old friend from high school, whom Jenn hadn’t seen or spoken to in ages had heard about what she was going through and wanted to help, so he arranged another fundraiser/fun night out at the Boston Improv Comedy Club to help lift spirits as the honeymoon was put on hold so Jenn could continue with her chemo.

All of this love and support could most definitely be felt on the wedding. There were some tears….though most were happy, loving, supportive tears. I may have shed a few myself. But, all of the scary ugliness that comes with a cancer diagnosis was put away for a most glorious day of love and joyful celebration. Here, Jenn’s besties, Kerri, Sheri & Elizabeth oozing with love & happiness for their gal pal….

Happy, wonderful, delightful Jenn has her veil put on….

After her hair & make up is done, Jenn gets a warm embrace from her sweet momma, Mary. Love this sweet wedding hankie Jenn got to dry her mom’s happy tears. So beautiful!!

Sheri & Mary help Jenn get in her gorgeous wedding gown. Va Va Va Voom…

The girls gather to help button Jenn in….

Meanwhile, across the property in another room at CBI, Jordan and his mates snap on their suspenders and pull up their socks in preparation for what was to be an unforgettable day…

Jordan gets a little help from his BM Robb. Sweetest guys.

Checking out the bling….

First looks are my fave….look at how these two react to seeing each other for the first time on the day they become hubs & wife. Just delightful!

Sooooo much love!!!

Love the pink-a-licious invites they choose by Splash Stationers in Sandwich and the gorgeous blush inspired flowers by Enchanted Florist in Centerville. And, per their request…..a fun snap for their guest thank you cards. Adorable.

Jenn & Jordan and their super fun posse. Love this group!

Jenn & her gal pals….and blue “I do!” proudly stuck to her beachy flip flops.

Guests begin arriving for the ceremony.

Love these candid moments of guests as they excitedly wait for the love fest to begin. This next photo makes me exceptionally happy because it includes two former Bello brides….Jenn’s cousin, Laura (in foreground) and friend Keri, whose wedding we photographed about 10 years ago. She’s as gorgeous as ever and we love the dark new hair, which totally stumped us when it came to immediately recognizing her.

As Jenn stood at the top of the stairs, ready to make her descent, Jordan was overcome with emotion. Me too!!

Loooove how you can feel the excitement, anticipation, love and pride in this next one as Mary leads her sweet girl to her soon-to-be husband. Love. Love. Love!!

And, more love…

The way these two look at each other, it’s just beautiful.

Jordan’s sister, Jackie, read a beautiful reading for the couple and had to hold her heart to keep herself together. It was just so lovely. And, again….the way these two look at each other. Be still my love loving heart!

Jordan’s beautiful vows to his bride were so touching…how he kept it together is beyond me.

And, like Jenn, who was moved to tears by Jordan’s words, Jordan struggled to keep it together as Jenn shared her vows, which like Jordan’s were so so, beautiful! I could barely contain myself.

And, then it was official….our new missus and mister.

Let the happy flag fly…..

Oh, so high….

I swear it did touch the sky.

Hugs from baby brother Stephen.

Let the celebrations begin. Love these guys!!!

But first, a quite moment for our newlyweds….

To take in the magnitude of the moment.

With a little snuggling on the dock.

Jenn was so cute….when we were taking her photo with whomever, she would grab the person’s head to bring it right in close to her. That’s just how she is….she likes those she loves nice and close! Lucky are those to be loved by her!!

And, doesn’t Jordan know it….look at that smile!!

Like I said earlier, Andy & I have been at this wedding thing for a while, and because there are only a handful of truly amazing places to get married on the Cape (unless you’re lucky enough to have a fabulous property on the water) it can be challenging to find creative, new ways to photograph our couples that feels fresh and different, but still appeals to our timeless sensibility. Working at the same places year after year, it gets increasingly more difficult to find places to put our couples that we and no one else has ever used before (at least that we’re aware of). But, it’s that kind of out-of-the-box thinking that Andy & I have always strived for, and truthfully, I think it’s something we’ve done really well. I remember in the first or second year of our career, a very well established photographer had told us that we raised the bar and changed the way others  photographed on the Cape. It was such a huge compliment, and it was in my mind when I asked Jenn & Jordan if they’d come sit in the beach cabana while I tried something new. I have to say…..I am in LOOOVE with the results. And without sounding too big headed, something tells me these cabanas are going to become a new hot spot for photos. I just loove the architecture of the lines! Having a crazy cute, totally smitten couple snuggling in them sure doesn’t hurt either!

Swoooooon…..

Cape Cod perfection….

More fun lines and happy smooches…

The beach house looked beautiful…orchids are my faves! And in touches of gold and grey and I’m in heaven.

Wedding thrones…

Cocktail hour candids….lots of smiling, happy faces.

And, a congratulatory kiss from Grandma. Be still my heart!

These guys know how to embrace life…it’s so inspiring!

Just before being announced into their reception, Jenn & Jordan share a happy look, as the roars of their friends usher them in…..Wooooo hooo!

Their first dance and hubby & wife….complete with dips and twirls and kisses, oh my!

The look of love and complete contentment. Makes my heart smile!

These two….just too much! The way they are together…it’s so natural and so full of love.

Like no one else was in the room…..

Moved by her momma’s words of support and encouragement…

And, then it was the co-best men’s turn. And, this happened.

Sheri showered Jenn & Jordan in more love-filled words…..

A lone tear on Jenn’s beautiful cheek….and a hug that says it all.

A mouth full of sweetness and a smile to match …..beautiful cake by CBI bakers.

Jenn laughs with her whole body and it is infectious. Love this girl!

Time to get down on it…..

Dance floor selfies….

Tearing it up…..

Co-best man, Andrew…..so much fun!

Towards the end of the night, the DJ (who, by the way, was AMAZING….Way to rock it C-Zone) played a killer remix of Rachel Platten’s Fight Song, which has become Jenn’s battle call. Watching her, surrounded by friends, all singing at the top of their lungs, nearly made my heart explode. I’m not sure if Rachel was thinking of cancer when she wrote  the song, but I think it’s a powerful anthem for survivors everywhere. I think of Jenn every time I hear it on the radio and imagine the day she’s doing Limoncello shots with her loved ones, celebrating her recovery, with this song still playing in the background…

….remembering the love that surrounded her this day….as her fight began and her love story moved to a whole new beautiful level of loveliness!

Jenn & Jordan, we hope you can feel all the love we saw surrounding you both on this most incredible day!! We love you guys so much and feel so grateful that you found your way into our lives and our hearts! Thank you so much for sharing yourselves and this day with us in such a warm and welcoming way. Thank you too, to your friends and family, who made us feel like part of the clan. We hope these photos serve as happy reminders of all the blessings of love in your lives and that we can all do it again to celebrate your five? ten? twenty? etc. year anniversary! Love you both to pieces and cannot wait for you to see the rest of the photos. This is such a small sample of all the beauty and love that was your awesomely inspiring wedding day!!! With big hugs & kisses, Chris & Andy xoxoxoxoxo

Nothing makes a man fall faster in love than telling him you’re obsessed with pitch count. At least that’s how Adam knew Kira was the one for him.

After meeting like so many busy couples do today….online, Kira & Adam had been dating for a while when they attended their first Red Sox game together. During the game, Kira, who is admittedly a Type A person, confided in Adam that she was obsessed with pitch count. And being a big baseball fan himself, Adam was hooked.

Of course, it didn’t hurt that Kira is also beautiful, has a great sense of humor and quick laugh, a go get ‘em approach to life and unwavering dedication to family.

“I love how funny she is and how she laughs so easily, even though I think I’m funnier,” he told us. “I love that she has a ‘crazy gung-ho’ motor and is able to wake up at 5am and go for the entire day. It motivates me to try to do the same, even though I”m not wired that way.”

I like to think it’s a really good sign when the one we love makes us want to be a better version of ourselves, just by being who they are. Andy is definitely that for me…although I’m not always good at following through.

For Kira, Adam is the yin to her yang….a stop and smell the roses kind of guy who reminds her to slow down and appreciate things more.

“I love that he’s created an amazing balance for me in my life. After a long, hard day at work, I feel lucky that I can come home and see him,” she told us, adding that she knew he was the one for her when she never got tired of spending time with him.

They’re both also incredibly passionate about family, particularly their nieces (Auntie gets it!!!), and look forward to starting their own family one day. For now, though, these two Boston beauties have their focus squarely set on their wedding, which will take place this October at Heritage Gardens in Sandwich.

Surprisingly, even with 13 years and nearly 200 weddings under our belts, we haven’t photographed a wedding there yet, which makes us super excited to be a part of this special joining. It doesn’t hurt that these two are crazy sweet and just utterly delightful to be around.Yay! Yay! And more Yay!

We got together with Kira & Adam a couple of weeks ago at Kira’s dad’s home in Centerville. With a beautiful, and meticulously maintained yard, it was the perfect place to begin….

Like so many of our couples, Kira & Adam confessed to being a little nervous about being photographed and not “overly schmaltzy” (I am totally making that expression part of my regular vocabulary!) but like every other couple who tells us this, they were just so much fun to photograph and despite what they said, looked very relaxed in front of our cameras.

We could quickly see the funny, joking rapport they share and were happy to capture those qualities….love the smiles!! So real and happy….just as it should be!

More playful giggles poolside.

I don’t know much about pitch count, but I know a couple that’s totally smitten when I see one…..SCORE!!!!

Kira’s face just lights up when she smiles, and she was smiling a lot during our session…perhaps Adam is right when he says he’s the funnier one?

Like a lovely pair of garden doves….

More silliness….yes, please!!

Next, we took a little walk to a nearby gazebo for some more kisses and smiles and giggles, oh my!

LOOOVE this next one Andy snapped. Just so much joy!!! Be still my joy-loving heart!

The look of love….

And, down to the beach for some more love & goodness…

The trees that lined the path to this beach made my heart beat a little faster….such perfect framing for a perfectly matched pair!

More playful perfection…

Wherever you lead, I will follow….by your side, always!

More Cape Cod charm….with our charming couple.

Beach grass, cedar beach fence and an adorable pair  = everything we need

Love these two…they’re just so sweet together and smile right from their hearts!

And, with a little walk on the beach, arm in arm, we say goodbye…

Kira & Adam, we loved chatting with you both on Skype that first time and were so happy when you decided you wanted us to be a part of this special time in your lives. You two made this session so fun for us and we can’t wait to be there with you both when you say, “I do!” surrounded by the people who love you most!! Thank you too, Ron, for inviting us into your home and for making your yard look so darned good. It was the perfect backdrop!! Cannot wait to meet the rest of your families!! Until then, we hope you all enjoy this sneak peek as much as we enjoyed capturing these moments for you!! Big love & hugs, Chris & Andy xoxo (PS…off to go read up what pitch count means!)

Laura & her family have been in our lives and in front of our cameras for a while now. We first met this sweet family about 5 years ago, when Laura’s little sister, Meghan married Mike at the beautiful Oyster Harbor Club in Osterville.

We got together a few years later with Laura and Meghan, and the whole family at one of their favorite beaches for a family portrait session. Click HERE for a peek at our time together. We really love when our Bello brides & grooms come back to us after marriage leads to the next happy chapter in their lives….family. Building relationships has always been a priority for us and family….well, family is what it’s all about!

Laura and her husband, Quinn, have four super sweet, crazy cute, playful, fun, funny, rambunctious though delightfully polite boys and we had such fun with them the other week, photographing and playing with them at Dowses Beach. It was a picture perfect summer night and our time together…such fun!

Our happy little clan (from left to right) Thomas, Daniel, Laura, Quinn, Liam and Patrick. Can we talk about sweet Liam and that gorgeous toothless grin?? Love this age!!

Are they cute or what?

Thomas (right) is a total ham, and unlike his twin, has his big boy front teeth and is happy to show them off. As is big brother, Daniel (left).

Happy, smiling, family…..these are the days!!!

Brothers…..so sweet!! I grew up with two sisters and though three girls was a handful….I expect Laura has her hands full with these four sweet peas!

More fabulous toothy and toothless smiles….

As I look at this next photos, I like to imagine what these sweet faces will look like all grown up, still smiling, and still tight as thieves!

Here comes trouble…

Momma Laura and her twins, and Daddy Quinn and his big boy Daniel.

The last time we photographed this family, the boys quickly fell into a pig pile while waiting for photos. Mom liked the pictures we got of that rough housing so much, we decided to try again.

Boys who play together stay together….

Oldest brother, Patrick is as handsome as he is sweet! And, love this sweet pic of Quinn and Liam snuggling.

A quick stolen moment for mom & dad, and some more playful goofing around by Thomas. This photo just screams him to me….silly, adorable, and oh so fun.

Laura & Quinn, thank you so much for reaching out to us again and inviting us back to photograph your beautiful family!! Your boys are just delightful and we loved getting to hang out with you all!! We hope you love these photos as much as we loved our time together!! Until the next time, big love & thanks!! Christine & Andy xoxo (PS…kisses to Meg, Mike and their sweet boys! And some to your mom & dad, and the rest of the gang too! Hope to see everyone again real soon!)
