Rhetta, Bill & Hannah - a blast from the past!

When I first moved out to Boston a couple of years ago, I worked for the wonderful and talented Matt & Enna Grazier. I remember clearly my first day, sitting down at the computer and browsing their website. I clicked on Portraits and stumbled across some beautiful photos of a beautiful pregnant women. But, not just any pregnant woman, this was Rhetta! Rhetta was one of my brides back in 2004 when I was an Associate for Real Life Weddings in Chicago. What a small world, huh?!

Two years later, come to find out, Rhetta is pregnant again, and looking to have some more photos taken, by me! I was totally thrilled to see her and Bill again, and to meet their darling daughter Hannah! We met up at the Arnold Arboretum and took a stroll among the changing leaves...


What kid doesn't love this?!

There are those leaves I was talking about...

I just love the look on Hannah's face! And apparently rubbing her earlobe is Hannah's thing. I love it when I can catch a kid being completely themselves - doing that thing that makes them, them.

Rhetta & Bill are so cute - just as in love as the last time I saw them!

The happy family :)

A few photos of Rhetta and her belly... Isn't she gorgeous!

I love this one of Rhetta & Bill because as I was taking their picture Hannah said or did something cute and they both turned to look. I love their smiles as they watch their little girl.

Are you kidding me with that adorable grin?!

Hannah wanted me to smell the pretty flower :)

And Daddy too, of course!

There she goes with that ear again :)

A few fun shots of Hannah and her Dad

And Hannah with her Mom

She really is too cute!

And now, just for fun, a few photos from Bill & Rhetta's wedding! It's still one of my favorites from the Real Life Weddings days. And yes, this wedding was shot almost entirely in black & white film!!
