Natalie and Milton ~Engaged~

Natalie and Milton are pretty much the most adorable couple I have ever met. Natalie is a total sweetheart with a fun loving attitude towards life and Milton has a great sense of humor and loves to laugh... a lot, it was hard to get him to keep a straight face for our more serious "poses"! (Not to mention they're both gorgeous and completely rocked it out for the camera!) They share a love for God and a love for each other that's completely pure, genuine, and refreshing! Natalie and Milton...I had a great time at your engagement session and can not wait for your wedding next month!!!
All of their pictures turned out great...here are just a handful of favorites <3

Validation!

I came across this short film today and I loved it! We all want to feel validated...to have someone tell us that we matter...to genuinely smile and feel good. And as a photographer those are the smiles that I strive for! I think we could all benefit from having an attitude more like the guy in this video! Check it out <3

Fine Art Textures <3

I thought I would take a minute to blog about my newly found love of textures (and when I say love I really mean mild obsession). I love how they can transform a pretty ordinary looking picture into a work of art that you will want to display in your home (FYI these look great printed on gallery style canvas wraps). Photographers, there are tons of great textures online (some free and some not so free, ha!) or you can shoot your own collection to use. If you know of any places to download some awesome textures feel free to share them here :) Here's an example of a before and after, if you would like to have the texture that I used for this picture let me know and I'd be happy to send it to you.

Imogen Claire

Last weekend I met up with an old friend that I haven't seen since High School to take some pictures of her beautiful baby girl, Imogen Claire. Imogen was such a sweet baby, she slept through most of her session and as long as I didn't mess with her too much she kept the screaming to a minimum : ) Sarah and Cory, thank you for letting me snuggle on your precious baby girl... I hope you enjoy your pictures! <3
Here are just a few of my favorites... I'm attepting my first slideshow, hopefully that will be up soon as well!

Imogen ~Coming Soon~

I had a couple of fun photo sessions over the weekend so I'm super busy editing pictures this week. Here's a sneak peek of what's to come <3

Seriously, how much do you just want to snuggle her?! The bunny blanket that she's cuddling with belonged to her mommy when she was a baby : )

Pat and Brooke <3

Last week I second shot Pat and Brooke's wedding with the amazing Jodi Schlosser http://www.jodischlosser.com/ . Pat and Brooke were so much fun, laughing and smiling the whole day, and were sooo excited to be marrying each other that I couldn't help but remember why I have the BEST job ever! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your beautiful day, I hope you enjoy your pictures :)
