Jaime + Termaine

I have to be honest here. I cried editing these photos. Jaime and Termaine are so loving and beautiful – my emotions got the better of me. A lot.

Let me back up a little. I met Jaime sometime around the time her oldest brother married my sister in 2005. She also worked at my sons’ school and babysat my guys. Although we aren’t “officially” related, I refer to her as my sister-in-law… sometimes because it’s easier, but mostly because she actually feels like a sister-in-law to me. She is gorgeous and funny and I just really love this girl.

I met Termaine at Jaime’s sister Amber’s wedding earlier this year, but didn’t know him very well before we did photos. Really meeting him on this day, for these photos, observing how loving and affectionate he is with Jaime, noticing how easy they are with each other… it was so overwhelming in such a happy, peaceful way. They are expecting their son next month, and are busy making plans and getting ready. I know Jaime will sink easily into being a mom because I watched her with my boys plenty of times. I also know that Termaine is going to take good care of her. And their baby. And I am so unbelievably happy for my sort-of-sister-in-law.

Congratulations Jaime and Termaine! I can’t wait to meet Brayden! Love you guys!

Matt, Alicia & Delilah

I met Matt and Alicia for the first time two Sundays ago and immediately felt like I had known them for a long time. They are both so welcoming and friendly and conversation was easy. Perhaps the coolest thing I learned about them during our shoot was that they first met each other in the fourth grade! They were friends through school, started dating (if I remember right) their senior year of high school, and were married a few years ago in a small ceremony. They began to expand their family soon after by adopting Delilah from the local SPCA. (She is really the sweetest, happiest girl! and so pretty!) We had a fun, early morning walk around Matt and Alicia’s city and I was able to catch some really genuine moments between these two; they are simply very easy with each other.

Sidenote: I would LOVE to see pictures of these two in fourth grade together!!

Matt and Alicia- you guys are the best! Thanks so much for a great morning, and congratulations on your NEW! home!!
