The Aliveto Family

Sweet, sweet Isabel.
I adore this little girl for so many reasons.
I photographed her parent’s wedding several years ago in beautiful Lost River, West Virginia. That wedding was the one where I decided that capturing special moments in the lives of families was what I was meant to do.
The wedding was very small, in a one room church with no plumbing, on a back road that made my little Mustang work harder than it ever had. The families made me feel like I had always been a part of their clans. I fell in love with photojournalistically capturing a special tradition.
I left that weekend knowing what I wanted to do. And for that, I will always be grateful to Beth and Frank- who helped me see my dream.
And now, for Beth and Frank’s dream: a beautiful, sassy, and incredibly bright little girl named Isabel. It’s hard not to instantly melt when you interact with her.
I can’t tell you how excited I was to see Beth + Frank again and to meet Isabel. It’s such a treat to meet the little ones who come out of these weddings!
