Garden Party Bridal Shower | Carolyn Ann PhotographyApril 24, 2013

garden-bridal-shower

This past March, I was the luckiest girl around :) My bridesmaids threw me an amazing bridal shower (and bachelorette, but no pics here ;) )

It was a sweet garden party themed shower, which was quite ironic as Northeastern Ohio was blanketed with snow that very morning! But we rolled with it and I am so happy to share the pretty little details.  I was lucky enough to have my bestie, Amanda, on hand to snap some shots when I was opening presents, being a hostess, etc. etc.

Guests got this tasty chocolate-drizzled popcorn for favors! It was super cute because Alex and I met in a movie theater (where we both worked, and where I consumed massive amount of this buttery good stuff ;) ).  And who isn’t weak in the knees for some adorable fonts?? Just me?

And no shower is complete without some majorly pinterest-worthy treats!bridal-shower-treats

Then I sat tight while guests played a hilarious game of “Who said it?” They had to guess which one (Alex or myself) answered a question by holding up lips or a mustache.  Everyone seemed to have a lot of fun watching my face for clues :)

Then it was time to open presents under the cutest banner ever! This is no etsy buy, handmade by my maid of honor!

BostonApril 16, 2013

Sending my love and thoughts to a city I called my home for three years. Barely a day goes by that I don’t miss living in Boston, and that will will remain true.

Amanda + Bryan Winter Beach Engagement | Carolyn Ann PhotographyApril 9, 2013

When I was home (Ohio) for spring break, I had this amazing plan to do a lovely engagement shoot with my best friend and my soon-to-be best friend-in-law (aka her hubby-to-be). Then we remembered it was March in Ohio, there went the cute spring session we had planned. Instead we hatched a plan for this super cute winter beach shoot, hot cocoa and an [illegal] beach bonfire (who knew? my dad informed post-facto). Enjoy (and relish in the fact that Amanda and Bryan’s REAL spring engagement will be coming once the weather cooperates).

I am just loving all the fun with light and reflections that can be had at the beach.

March 365 Highlights | Carolyn Ann PhotographyApril 3, 2013

March was a crazy month! I had some engagement and family shoots, my own bridal shower & bachelorette, went to an amazing Macklemore concert, dog-sat some cuties, dyed some eggs and am hoped to say goodbye to snow once and for all this year!

I had the amazing privilege of photographing the S family.  This mom and dad are blessed with two beautiful little girls.

We had some play time, family time, and some peek-a-boo time :)

I think these pictures speak for themselves.
