For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.




A rekindling experience of love through imagery.

Welcome Baby Harlynn Grace! | Newborn Photographer Monroe Files Photography

Congratulations Eric and Jenna McDonald for bringing another beautiful baby girl in to the world!
Harlynn Grace was born at 3:10 AM May 22, 2009.
She weighed 7 pounds 12 ounces and was 21.5 inches long.

She has monkey feet!

That would be her "dog tag". At least that's what I call it!

Harlynn was not happy with me for tickling her cute monkey feet :-/


Pround Nanna feeding Harlynn. She's a chow hound!


She is going to be tall!


What a cutie!
I don't like the big plastic clip they put on their belly buttons now.
Looks uncomfortable!

Total sweet heart! I can see her big sister in her, Lanie, but just a little bit!


Happy baby on Grandpa's lap.


The proud parents! Lanie is off with her other Gram, or she would be in here too!

Ade & Steph...the sunshine state! | Wedding Photographer Monroe Files Photography

I apologize for the lack of updates. My hubby and I got back from Florida (ok, a week ago!) for his cousin's wedding. We had a wonderful time! The wedding was absolutely beautiful. Still shocked that Ade went through with it but Steph is truely a lucky lady!
Here's some photos from Ade & Steph's big day. I was not the photographer on assignment, I strictly went as a guest and the best man's beautiful wife :)

Hubby and I before the wedding...*sigh* I wish I was still there!

Ocean, I miss you!

The seating arrangements. SO cute!




The candy bar, that was picked at as everything was being set up. :)





The very yummy cake! And no, that is not sand. It's colored sugar. Had you fooled right?


Love their cake topper!


Where the wedding ceremony took place. Beautiful!


The groom and best man sharing a hand shake.
I swear, if you look close you can see smirks, the prelude to shenanigans!


Watching Steph walk down the isle.


How gorgeous is her dress?! MERMAID!
And the bouquet! Made by yours truely and a handy sister in law.
The groom's boutineer matches (See previous photo).


A kiss to send her off from Dad.


This is where we got to hear how Ade & Steph met and a condensed version of their courship. Very cute and personal.


Sand ceremony.
I think I like this even better than the idea of candles.


The kiss!
The vinette is very close to the color of the bridesmaid dresses.


I love this photo!


First dance.


He was in there for a LONG time!
It was a gorgeous Florida day for a great couple to become husband and wife. I enjoyed your big day immensely and I can't wait to see the photog's photos of you guys on the beach! I wish we could do it all over again! (And my wedding too!)
