Dean and Julie | Parents to Be

I have been on this magical ride with Julie since she was graduating high school. She very quickly became my favorite because she showed up with chocolate covered strawberries. Since then, i have photographed her engagement, bridal, wedding, and Christmas photos. As an added perk, Dean was added to the mix.

The two of them are dynamic and energetic. I love the way they love each other. their investment and loyalty in those around them. and their dedication to being great human beings.

Now, Dean and Julie are going to be parents. I know they will be outstanding and will provide the most caring and loving home for their baby. I’m already in love with this little creation and cannot be more humbled to continuing telling their story.

thank you. i love you dearly. don’t know what i ever did in this life to deserve your energy. to witness your love. and to be on the receiving end of your goodness. so much joy in my heart for this!

be infinitely blessed

Abby | Class of 2017

 You can learn a lot from a person when you photograph them. With Abby, i immediately knew she was strong, and determined… focused. She pushed through photos on this cold and very windy afternoon. She’d shiver between poses. She’d take a deep breath, give herself a mental push, and then she’d smile and kill it.

I imagine that she has the same disposition in all other areas of life; breezing through challenges and tough situations. It’s young ladies like her that make me so excited for the future. This sweet girl is graduating high school. And while I only recently met Abby, i know she will reach and surpass her full potential.

Abby – you are beautiful through and through. I so enjoyed our time in the cold wind and cannot wait to see your talents on stage next month! I will be cheering you on in your future endeavors and can only hope to see more and more of you in the time to come! thank you for sharing your senior year memories with me. but mostly, thank you for being so positive and radiant.

Mireya | Class of 2017

She’s quiet. And studious. Very independent. That’s really all i ever knew of her. Until we met for her graduate session. And, if i’m honest, i’ll tell you that i haven’t laughed that much on a session in a long time. Which is to say, i laughed more than A LOT! Anyway, we had a great time together and i am happy to have gotten to know this girl and her big dreams a little better that morning!

Mireya, thank you for choosing me and trusting me to photograph you.  There are so many great things about you and i feel like i have only been fortunate to see a few. I know that you will succeed in all you do. I pray that you continue to allow people to see and experience the amazing things that lie within you and that you have abundance of favor returned to you for sharing your fun, playful, giving, and energetic spirit.

be infinitely blessed

Ryan and Hailey | Save the Date

ryan and hailey laugh the entire time they are together.

I love when i get to spend an afternoon with people that are so genuinely happy together and enjoying their season of engagement! Ryan and Hailey met with me for a quick save the date session on a rooftop downtown. I learned more about them and their joyful dynamics and cannot wait to photograph them again this spring!

Taylor and Berklee | Save the Date

Taylor and Berklee are getting married this summer.

Seven years ago, i met this sweet girl. I was very quickly enamored by her. You couldn’t convince me that she hadn’t hung the moon. Fast forward to present day and i am here taking her save the date photos with her fiance, Taylor.

We’ll meet again in spring when things turn green again. But i couldn’t help myself in sharing these first few images of this newly engaged couple!

be infinitely blessed
