Family Pictures 2013 - Central Park

Engagement pictures round two?! It totally felt like it. My reasons for family pictures were as follows: 1.) We needed a holiday card picture. 2.) It'd been way too long since Scott worked it in front of the camera. 3.) We HAD to forever remember this fall in Central Park. Thankfully, Scott didn't put up a fight and just went with it.

 I had been working nightside all week and we really didn't get to see each other much. I got home late Friday night to find Scott fast asleep on the couch. I had been wanting to coordinate what we were going to wear for our pictures but hadn't had the chance. I woke my sleepy husband up to have him try on a certain sweater. He stood up, put the sweater over his head, and then fell back asleep. His head even hit the wall next to where he was standing. He didn't budge. I couldn't help but laugh.

 It was an extremely busy Saturday for us and Scott literally came straight from the office to take these pictures. While switching from the "prom pose" to the "laugh at me like I'm hilarious pose" I remember saying, "This is the most time we've spent together all week!" We chuckled because sadly, it was true. We relished in it before he had to run back to work. These photos will always take me back to our current stage of life: newly married (I still like to think that) and chasing after these dreams of ours in the big city. There is just something so exciting and adventurous about this time of life. Sure it is busy, and there are moments when I wonder if my commute or Scott's hours are worth it. But I like to think that we're building the foundation for our future. We are continuing to grow together and individually. We truly are navigating our path as a couple and solely relying on one another. I'm just so fortunate to have this guy by my side. I am so proud of him. 

These were taken by the totally talented and fabulous Kylie Whiting. You can see more of her amazing work here. I originally met Kylie in college when we were both communications majors and we even interned in New York together four years ago. I was thrilled to learn that she was doing photography in the city. If you're looking for an incredible photographer in the New York area, we would highly recommend her! 

And when all was said and done, I think Scott Maddux enjoyed giving/receiving Christmas cards more than I did. I'm serious, he would rush to get the mail. It was cute.


  1. You two are quite the couple! These pictures are beautiful. I loved reading your words about this stage in life. We feel so blessed to have each other and to be on this adventure together. We will look back at these years with great memories for years to come.

  2. Inspiring! What a power couple you two are. And to think, you're really really ridiculously good looking ON TOP of all that other great stuff. How do you do it?
