To the Birthday Boy

E isn't overly keen on birthday's, more specifically his own, but I, however, love a good birthday celebration-- especially those for my family and friends! Perhaps it is because I came into this world on a day people across the globe celebrate, but I think birthday's are certainly occasions for rejoicing.

Take today. This day is an important one to me because it is the day E was born, an occasion for which I am truly grateful. Cheesy? Perhaps. But very true. I hope you all will indulge me as a take today to wish E a very Happy Birthday!!

{Early} Moments- Makeup

Before my first semi-formal dance in high school, my mom insisted on taking photos of me putting on my make-up. Although I went along with it, I didn't understand why she wanted to capture those images; once the film was developed, however, at the risk of sounding vain, I had to admit there was something intriguing about having documented those moments of preparation.

I love seeing photos capturing the early moments of a wedding day; the moments spent getting ready for the big event. Moments that are surely filled with anticipation, excitement, and nerves. Moments that are sometimes spent alone and often spent surrounded by friends and family.

To start the next installment in the Moments series, {Early} Moments, I'd like to share these beautiful images of brides in the midst of their big day beauty routines.
