2015: Year in Review

What a year it was for Michelle Taulbee Photography; the business as well as our family! As I reflect on the last year I am amazed at how quickly 2015 flew by. We opened the year as a family of two & captured a beautiful winter wedding. We ended the year with a son as a family of three & captured another beautiful winter wedding! I look around my home office & I see baby toys & hear little giggles & big cries.. Im a mom now! Trey is a dad! Wow!

We had the honor of capturing so many incredible moments.. I hear myself saying what an honor each shoot is & I know I sound much like a broken record. But the truth is, we are honored. Walking into such private & intimate moments will never get old to us. We never take it lightly. It is always a big, yet, welcome responsibility. You guys are amazing. Each time I open my email & see an inquiry, I say a little prayer of gratitude for the continued grace from the Lord to keep doing this job. I love it. 

2015 offered up so many different kinds of sessions from labor & delivery to family portraits to wedding days! The year was beautiful & stretched us in so many ways. I never knew how far I could push my body physically until I found myself 7-9 months pregnant in the middle of south Alabama summertime capturing wedding days! We had the best & most understanding clients while I was pregnant & could not have asked for better interactions with the brides' & grooms' families & friends. I loved looking back over the weddings and engagements from this year. I have compiled some of our favorite shots from last year to show our year in review. Enjoy, friends!

 The year kicked off with Hannah & Josh's winter wedding in Hattiesburg <3

 In mid January, I got to capture my first C-Section delivery session. It was breathtaking. Here, Jenny is meeting her son outside her body for the first time.

 April brought with it two gorgeous weddings for The Baxters &amp; The Bradfords! &amp; some new &amp; old friends allowed me into a moment to capture their maternity photos. After a long battle with lost pregnancies &amp; health issues along the way, the Gannons were finally able to request maternity shots. I was absolutely honored.&nbsp;

October & November were filled with love in weddings & some beautiful engagement sessions as the leaves changed & the air chilled. 

 The year ended off with even more lovely &amp; gracious clients. We couldn't be more grateful and humbled..&nbsp;
