OK - it took me forever to get this blog post out. SRY. It was my 30th birthday - then my first art showcase - my dad was in town - and then I went back to work. I’ve been so busy! But finally life is calming down a little before it ramps back up again so I wanted to get this beautiful session out.

What can I say about Amanda & John? First off — they’re gorgeous together. I put out a model call & Amanda reached out to me — “does it matter if i’m pregnant?!” UMM, NO. will only increase the love factor <3

It rained this entire session. we were stuck taking photos only under this archway. they ventured outside for a quick made-up-on-the-spot handshake & that was it! but I’m still so in love with the way these turned out.

John, Amanda - I wish you both the absolute best. that baby girl of yours will be so beautiful!

I am SO excited about this engagement session (my first!) & I’m also SO excited to photograph their wedding in November. Courtney is a former co-worker of mine & I 100% miss working with her. We’re kind of kindred spirits. We’ve had some really wonderful deep conversations in the last year & she is just such a special person. She has been with her fiance Jordon since high school! The love was easy between them & it showed during this engagement session in the snow <3
