Sawyer is ONE | Personal | Dog Cake Smash | Crystal Reyns Photography

I know y’all see me post quite a few cake smashes through out the year. Y’all know I LOVE them. And I LOVE my fur babies…. so for our little guy Sawyer we HAD to do a cake smash.

He had his first studio session the day after we got him, he was 8 weeks new, and what seems to be so tiny compared to now. Back then he was calm, sleepy, and not the most coordinated. We began a hashtag to follow his grow and it was so fun to watch over the past year. #watchsawyergrow

NOW being the bit ONE, he is SSSSSOOOOOO energetic, which is a huge change from having lazy pugs. He is a morning dog and doesn’t let us sleep in, he listens pretty well, he loves to chase ANYTHING that will move, including all his fur brothers, a ball is his best friend, and he still loves to cuddle he just doesn’t know his size.

So March 24th 2016, happiest of birthday to our biggest baby Mister Sawyer Duke!!!!

Here is the many faces of Sawyer:

Where have I been in 2016 | Personal | Catch up| Crystal Reyns Photography

I haven’t blogged in so long…….YIKES…. I apologize guys!!!!

A few have asked where have I been…

Well I took a nice break during what we call our ‘slow season.’

From January to now, we have been cracking down on our wedding planning and we have gotten a lot done, which a blog will be coming on the ins and outs of wedding planning and how NOT to let it get the best of you. I have said YES TO THE DRESS over at my favorite bridal shop, Urban Set bride and couldn’t be more proud to be an urban set bride!!!

We had a fun snowed in weekend with the blizzard, which I would normally venture out into and want to shoot kids, families, baby bumps…..but for once I wanted to be at home cuddled up and just watching the snow and able to take it in without ‘working.’

Traveling, y’all know I love to travel. We spent a nice weekend away at a wonder bed and breakfast in the mountains. I’ll tell y’all what, I think EVERYONE should put that on your bucket list if you haven’t. I know I want to do it again already.

I decided to take a day position at a wonderful company, and I am loving…. BUT that isn’t slowing down the wedding season or sessions, as my weekends are still for photography and some for living 🙂  I will gladly say that the 2016 WEDDING SEASON IS FULLY BOOKED as well, and we have already started BOOKING for 2017!!

Like most families we have been dealing with quite a bit of winter sickness and that didn’t leave me out this year. From a little cold to now bronchitis right before the beginning of my season. Thankfully I have an amazing doctor that wants to nip it in the bud as much as I do…..shout out to Stacy at Va family practice….thanks girl!!!

And last but not least….we decided to add another one to our family….. 🙂 🙂 🙂

MEET Kevin…..(as in kevin bacon):
