Chattanooga Newborn Photographer – Lennon and Lawson’s Twin Newborn Session

I’m absolutely giddy to introduce you to Lawson (the little guy with the dreamy smile) and his 6-minute-older big sister, Lennon!  I am still prone to goosebumps when I recall their birth!  Because they were teeny and a bit early, both kiddos had to spend a little time in the NICU but were none the worse for their stay there.  When I got ahold of these two, they were breathtakingly beautiful.  Nursing like superstars, and sleeping similarly, they made their session an absolute dream. You’ve heard of people spoiling  babies, of course, but these babies spoiled their newborn photographer for sure!

From the moment they entered the world, you could see Lennon is a miniature version of her stunning mommy.  She has to-die-for skin and the most incredible little lips.

Little Lawson is just like his daddy – with lighter skin and eyelashes for days.

My goodness.  It’s amazing to me to see twins together outside the womb.  Their connection, their love, their instinct for touch… They’re such special little people, twins are.  Even though my own girl twins are nearly 5 years old, I *still* look at them in amazement that they lived and grew together inside me.

And… I spy two big sisters who are beyond happy to have these little bits to snuggle!  I know Lawson is going to be spoiled sweet with his THREE big sisters!  I just love it!

Sweet babes, you are the light in so many eyes.  I know you’ll grow big and strong and happy surrounded by love and affection.  Thanks to your amazing family for allowing me to spend time with you and indulge the snuggle-cravings I’ve had since the day you were born!

Love,

Melissa

Ali & Reaves Chattanooga Wedding at Manker Patten Tennis Club

In Chattanooga wedding season typically begins in March.  The weather is usually mild, warm enough for an outdoor wedding. It rarely snows here, if it does then it’s two inches in December or January. By February it’s springtime again. As you can see from the photos – spring had arrived. The trees were blooming, the grass was green. However, on the day of Ali & Reaves wedding – it decided to snow, it was cold, the wind was insane. Their friends and family were simply amazing. Not one person complained or stopped smiling all day even when taking photos in knee-length dresses while braving the snow and the cold.

Ali and Reaves are a beautiful couple, inside and out. Their wedding day was simply beautiful, filled with emotion and love. They chose Manker Patten Tennis Club  for their wedding and reception because it had meaning to Reaves, who played tennis there the majority of his life. I love the colors they chose, the gorgeous pink lace dresses that the bridesmaids wore. Ali looked simply stunning in her Vera Wang gown. The look on Reaves face when he saw Ali walking toward him down the aisle was simply priceless. It’s a moment I won’t ever forget. So many moments – tears, laughter, family and friends grinning from ear to ear. Havoc from the wind as the unity candles blew out time and again and Ali’s veil decided to attack her. A beautiful reception with family and friends, dancing, food, and so much excitement and genuine happiness for the couple. Incredible details – the Wedding Libs are one of my favorite reception ideas I’ve ever seen.

Happy First Anniversary, Ali & Reaves. I wish you a lifetime of happiness together!

 

Much love,

Your Wedding Photographers,

Melody & Mike
