Winter is coming! (but not for several months...)
Game of Thrones fans were all a flutter last week for the launch of the seventh season's premiere. Though I've never watch a single episode, my sisters, Nikki & Natalie, and bro-in-law Ryan are obsessed. What started out as a themed dinner they were planning QUICKLY grew into a huge party and before we knew it elaborate decorations were involved. But as many people know, the Cannon girls take party planning very seriously! Like with any of our family gatherings, my duty was to photograph and document the event. (Upon looking at the images I'm convinced we could start a family party/event planning business (if we had any spare time!))
I know I'm a little behind with the whole "year in review" thing but I figured as long
as I published this before February 1st I was still good...!
In no particular order, here are my top 16 portraits of 2016 and
why they were my favorites of the year.
You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret, all the best people are!
-Alice in Wonderland
My mom is a very special woman and to show her how special she is, for her birthday last month my sisters and I thew her a surprise birthday party!! The theme was Alice in Wonderland, an absolute favorite of Mom's. Mom is very much like Alice; clever, curious, and imaginative. It was so much fun getting to celebrate my mom with all of her loved ones. It especially wonderful being united with all of my sisters to honor the woman who raised us and taught us all we know.
Holidays with my family are always wonderful. We take presentation of food and decor very seriously, but in the best kind of way. Attention to detail is one of the greatest things my mother has taught my sisters and me and I hope one day to pass that knowledge onto my children. Everything always looks beautiful and makes the day extra special!
I love when my trips to Texas aligns with holidays. Here are a few pictures from my Easter this year (mainly consisting of toddlers and food!) Hope your Easter was a lovely one filled with eggs, candy, and loved ones!!
This is Kaylee, Maddie's cousin on her daddy's side. That blonde hair in the sunlight was just too precious!
So I'm in Houston for a trip. Over the weekend I was blessed with several clients. I do my best post-shoot work in the evenings and into the night! Monday evening consisted of lot's of uploading, sorting, lightly retouching, naming files, creating galleries...
My phone beside me lit up.
"HuffPost Weddings mentioned Caitlin Cannon Photography in a post."
Joy. Love. Pride.
I was thrilled to see that the Huffington Post featured one of my portraits from Emily & Greg's Oklahoma Wedding in a recent article. Click HERE to view it!
Emily's parents have been married for 40 years and Greg's parents have been married for 37 years. What a special thing it was to see them standing all in a row, such a beautiful legacy of love! And that's one of the things I love so much about being a photographer; capturing those moments that not only YOU will treasure but you're children's CHILDREN will adore. Carrying on those moments to appreciate and love for the rest of time... That is truly special!
What a beautiful start to the week. Thanks for coming on this incredible ride with me!!
Loves: my husband, golden age movie musicals, red lipstick, fall leaves, rainy mornings, dressing up, jazz music, yellow tulips, tap dancing, and taking your photos (yes YOU!)
