our baby girl

Our fourth (and final!) baby, a sweet girl, was born three weeks ago today.

Grace Katherine Vossler entered the world at 38 weeks weighing 10 pounds and 9 ounces (yes, you read that right!) and 21 inches long.

ofcourse, we can’t imagine life without her in it. Lucas, Olivia and Madelyn are absolutely in love – and enjoy smothering Gracie with kisses and hugs and they all fight over who gets to hold her.

I am so blessed to have four healthy and beautiful children, and am now excited to move out of baby growing, and into baby raising:)



nick and haven | orange county wedding photographer

this wedding is near and dear to my heart. haven is my cousin, so you can imagine my joy to have been able to fly to Raleigh, North Carolina to photograph her and Nick’s wedding day. it was an emotional day – witnessing ANY wedding is emotionally charged – but to be on a completely different coast, surrounded by my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins (some of whom I haven’t seen in over 7 years!!) made the whole weekend so very special, and so very fulfilling! please enjoy these photos, as they a little more personal to me than normal.


shelly clark - I’m all teary eyed after looking at the beautiful photos, and remembering so many years ago when Doug and Denise led the College Class at COTW, and also of seeing your Grandma (who I swear never changes). Thanks for sharing the photos.

Judy Davis - For those of us who missed being at the wedding, this is such a treat! What gorgeous photos, Melissa, of a beautiful event. The bride and groom look so happy and all the guests like they are having a ball. Your mom looks great! I miss her so much!

Love you!!!!!
A. Judy
