Lena Michelle Photography: The Magical Birthday of My Little Pony, Paisley

Once upon a time, in a magical land that is too far from me, a beautiful little girl was born to two souls that love her more than their own lives.

This little beauty’s name isย Paisley Ever, and she is my two year old niece. I fell in love with her the moment I learned that we were expecting a new addition to our family, and she has had my heart ever since.

Two years old!! I can’t believe how quickly time has flown. This little pony’s birthday was magical! I’m so happy I could be there with my family and friends toย celebrate this little treasure of our’s! The decorations were gorgeous and so adorable! That’s my Sister, y’all!! The food was delicious, and the company was the best there is.

A huge thank you to Paisley’s Mom and Dad, Aimy and Mike, and her Aunt Vicki, Aunt Amy, Grammy and Papaw!! I had so much fun!

All my love to my little pony, Paisley!! Happy birthday dear one!

Love, our Pony Family ๐Ÿ˜‰

Whitney and David have been dear friends of our’s for a long time now.ย We were so happy to see them when they came to town!

I had so much fun photographing their gorgeous family! The weather was perfect, soft and golden. I could have stayed there all day and been quite content. Thank you for spending your evening with me Barkers! We love y’all!

Lena Michelle Photography: Gorgeous Camping Date Session

Kaylee, Spencer and Cerberus are the cutest trio, and I’m so lucky that I had the opportunity to hang out and photograph them!!

The weather and woods were gorgeous, not to mention the couple! Watching Kaylee and Spencer, I could easily see that these two are best friends. They have so much fun that it’s impossible not to get sucked in and be laughing and playing right along with them.

Thank you so much for spending your evening with me!

‘What Is This Thing That Men Call Death’

What is this thing that men call death
This quiet passing in the night
โ€˜Tis not the end but genesis
Of better worlds and greater light

O God, touch Thou my aching heart
And calm my troubled, haunting fears
Let hope and faith, transcendent, pure
Give strength and peace beyond my tears

There is no death, but only change
With recompense for victโ€™ry won
The gift of Him who loved all men
The Son of God, the Holy One

Lena Michelle Photography: Beautiful Impromptu Portrait Session

I had the pleasureย of photographing a gorgeous wedding with my dear friend and fellow photographer, Kelli of Kelli LeBaron Photography.ย I adore this lovely girl!! Her passion and artistic creativity is amazing.ย I love photographing with her just as much as I love taking pretty pictures of her beautiful face!

In between shooting times, we had a few moments to stop in a glade of gorgeous, evening light, and I couldn’t resist! The light, the flowers and this beautiful girl made my camera sing!!

My Gorgeous Gal Pals

Oh my goodness! It has been so, so hot here! All I want to do is lay by the pool and read a book with a popsicle! But seeing as how I have to play grown up and all, I find that I don’t have the time for it. I hope you’re staying cool!

My two gorgeous friends, and their handsome counter parts, came to hang with the hubby and I yesterday, and they were nice enough to let me capture some pictures of them in all their beauteousness. We had so much fun! Thanks ladies!
