{Lafayette Wedding Photographer Trash The Dress} with Jackie…

Last week I had the chance to meet up with the uber sexy, styling and philanthropic Jackie!  She contacted me because, as she stated it, “I’m not the same person I was when I got married.  I went into marriage thinking that it was going to be a fairytale, so I had the big poofy white dress and the long train, but the day after wards I woke up and realized I was wrong.”  Jackie wanted a chance to wear her dress again, but this time, as a new more confident and radiant women.  Honestly, I haven’t seen pictures of Jax on her wedding day, but I think she’s even more gorgeous today!  I think all women should have a chance to do a “Trash the Dress” or “Day After Session,”  well in this case years after, but  sometimes I think it takes having the gift of marriage and years of growing and healing from our past to discover the true women that we are meant to be!  Now onto the photographs!

{Lafayette Family & Baby Photographer} Meet the Wiltons!

The Wilton Family is one of the sweetest families you’ll ever meet and their two girls, ages 1 and 2 are too adorable for words.  I met up with them at their home in Lafayette, which is an old church turned into a house.  It’s definitely one of the coolest houses ever, but we decided to take the session outdoors, as the weather & scenery was just perfect!  You might remember Ally from her maternity session here, with her first daughter, Norah, and now she is pregnant with baby #3 due in January!  It’s amazing to watch and document as their family grows.  Now onto their session!

I love the way Dave is looking at Ally here, so adoring!

We took a little time out to get a sweet photo of Margo & her mommy!

We took a minute out to get a sweet image of Margot and her mommy.

Then I held Margo and captured these beautiful maternity images :)

Isn't Ally the most stunning pregnant women!

Then the rest of the family joined back up with us.

So adorable!

I love the backlight in these images!

Proof that even with 2 kids you can still be sexy

Sweet Margot!

I LOVE this one of Norah!
