Featured: The Hanifi-Sampair family

This family's session is such a sweet reminder that all photos don't have to be wide smiles and sitting still. As I photographed them on a warm, fall evening, I was also reminded just how wonderfully unique siblings are. 

Though these two sisters clearly look alike, their personalities are vastly different --the oldest was silly and outgoing, while the youngest was very soft and reserved. As our time together unfolded, I was able to witness some true family dynamics as the parents adjusted their play, their speech, even their gestures toward each child in a way that honored their differences so beautifully without even realizing it.

Featured: Sun-Kissed Summer Engagement with Nate and Loghan

I couldn't let summer fade without one last hurrah of celebrating summer love on the blog. Meet Loghan and Nate - a couple sooo so dear to our family. Their story is one of many twists and turns, a story of God's perfect timing, and the wonderful reward that comes when we follow his voice in our hearts. 

After dating in high school, the relationship ended and they moved to separate states, moving on to other relationships and challenges, but always wondering about the other. Eventually, the stars aligned and when they decided years later to give it another go, they both fell fast in love. In having the chance to know these two intimately over the past year through our church life, I've had the privilege of watching them navigate that season from dating to engaged, to witness the core of how they support encourage one another. They've become close friends whom I admire and  will cheer on through every stage of life ahead, so to capture their engagement session and honor the start of this next season through that was just a real treat.

Featured: Alex and Steve's Maternity Session

After hanging up from our planning call several months ago, I thought to myself - "oh, they're going to be fun."

Alex's personality is so down to earth and her openness and excitement for our shoot was so energizing! Like most couples, Alex and Steve hadn't had photos together since their wedding, which left a sour taste in their mouth (that inside joke is for them ;-) ). I was anxious to give them an experience that suited their style, was comfortable and enjoyable, and created images that they could hold dear as the beginning of their next adventure.
