this is it...

So, this is it...
We are very excited to announce our New Blog It's been a long time coming and now it's finally here! It's a sad day for this blog... *play Taps here* We are officially retiring her, she was good to us but we just have to move on and grow up. Much like all other good eras...they come to an end...so, this is it...let's take a moment of silence

With the end of one great era begins another great era...
We have spent a lot of time giving ourselves a makeover and now it's time for the reveal...
A brand new look....a brand new Website and a brand new Blog
This is it...We will continue to conduct all of our business at our new home on the interwebs here:

mathieuphoto.com & mathieuphoto.com/blog

I hope that you have enjoyed our work here and that you update your RSS and what not and follow us to the other side. This blog won't disappear so if you still want to come and visit I'm sure she'll appreciate it. As I bid you adieu here, I leave you with one last frame, a night cap if you will, the cherry on top, the icing on the cake, the nail in the coffin (sort of), this is it...
What can you expect from a pig but a grunt? Good night and good luck.

The Broyles Family: And Lucas, the new addition!

It's always so neat to watch our clients grow their families. We enjoyed spending some time with the Broyles Family back in August (check it out HERE). Little Lucas was yet to be born and we were so excited to see the belly and then meet the baby!! I've always felt that childbirth is a complete miracle but it still amazes me every time! Jocie had a belly and then all of a sudden Lucas was out!! He's a perfect, chubby, happy little man. He had such a great temperament. The entire time we were together he was content. Josiah and Emma are amazing older siblings and Lucas is the perfect youngest child. I can already tell he loves to be tossed around. The kids were playing with him on the bed, pulling at his limbs and kissing his face and he just giggled. A few days after our shoot the Broyles were headed back to China. We prayed for a safe journey and we look forward to their return to the states in 2012!!

ps. Charlotte is scooting backwards. It's her latest trick on the path to crawling. We sure hope she learns how to move forward :)

Sarah & Ted: MARRIED!! in Cancun!

Sarah & Ted were married in Cancun with 20 of their very closest friends and family. It's always such an extreme honor when our clients ask us to be a part of something so intimate. We feared rain in the forecast but it held off until the day after the ceremony and everyone was grateful! We can't wait until their reception at the end of the month :)

JuneBug at 4 Months + Natalie Norton is my Hero

We take photos of Charlotte all the time but we want to make sure we capture a real good set at each month to see how she progresses in her first year. It's amazing to us that she has already doubled in weight!! I love watching her learn new things. Matt and I are amazed that she will learn something one day and then it just sticks. She learned to grab her toes and now it seems that she can't stop doing it. She giggles and "chats" with us and her personality is coming out more and more with every passing moment.

Over the last few weeks I have been on an emotional roller coaster with this gal Natalie. I heard about her and her serious need for prayer via Twitter. I asked everyone I knew to pray for her and her precious son Gavin, I even recruited my Bible study ladies. He was fighting for his life in the hospital and Natalie was giving us the play by play and the details of exactly what Gavin specifically needed. I was praying for miracles and Natalie didn't get the one we were all praying for. She lost her precious son. I cried as my heart broke for this woman that lives across an ocean who I will probably never meet. I wanted to hug her, her husband, her other little boys. I wished that from far away I could find some way to comfort them. But thank the Lord, He is bigger than an ocean and tiny little me. And thank God for Natalie's persistent faith.

Natalie, if you ever read this please know that I think of you every. single. day.

Thank you for giving me a new perspective. Thank you for teaching me an incredible lesson.

I always thanked God for my daughter before I fell asleep at night. But it is because of you and because of Gavin's short yet powerful life that I fall asleep much differently. Every night I fall asleep praising Him for every single second I get with her. And then I beg and plead with God for at least one more morning that I can wake up and see her face, hear her coo and feel her warm cheek on mine.

I do believe I will think of you everyday for the rest of my life. Thank you for being so honest.

The Johnston Family

We love our neighbors! When Matt and I first moved into our apartment Lily was a brand new baby. Over the years we have seen Lily start to walk and talk and then last year we were so excited to meet Adam & Abby. (Please click HERE to see their precious newborn faces.) Gabe & Jess are great neighbors. I can knock on the door at any time of day to ask baby questions or to barrow sugar (it's cliche but I've done it more than once). I could go on and on, we just really love them! It was so fun to run around after them for a couple hours at the park.

yeah, they've made some babies ;)
