Today is my birthday. I celebrate 26 wonderful years, and really I couldn't be happier with where I am in my life right now. My handsome husband woke up with Norah (she's an earlier riser and, well, I'd rather not be) and made me a delicious breakfast while I slept in, then we cuddled on the couch while our darling toddler walked around babbling away. So despite the fact that today's "to-do" list is full of mundane grown-up tasks such as renewing my driver's license, today is a good day. The best, in fact, because it's my birthday.
Oh yes, that's me on my first birthday.
Maggie + Adam Engaged
Tuesday, July 26, 2011
Maggie and Adam were super nervous to have their picture taken, but I think they did a great job looking comfortable in front of the camera. Of course, 20 minutes into the session we were attacked by a giant rainstorm. Good thing these two are so good looking and we had already taken enough shots that they felt comfortable calling it good. I'm so excited for their laid-back Sundance wedding this September!
Hailey + Jordan's engagement session
Monday, July 18, 2011
Hailey and Jordan really wanted their engagement session to reflect who they are, so a lot of thought was put into this photo shoot and it all paid off! Hailey has always had a special place in her heart for all things vintage and personal, so the quilt we used was one her great-grandmother made. Most of the books and dishes have fun family stories behind them and the truck belong to Hailey's dad, he's been restoring it for years.
Spending an evening with these two was like watching a love story in real-life. Jordan treats Hailey like a true princess, and the way she looks at him you know he's her prince charming.
Betsy + Joe: Married
Wednesday, July 13, 2011
When I first met Betsy, I had my hair up in rollers, I was dressed in some super cute pajamas and I was sweeping the floor in my apartment. She knocked on the door and I let her in, excited to meet my new roommate. "Oh my goodness," I told her, "the last girls were SO messy, I am glad they're gone." She laughed in my face and told me that I was just going to have to deal with it because she was messy too. Despite her messy ways and my high maintenance, we hit it off and have been besties ever since.
Now Betsy has a new roommate, the husband kind. I was so honored to photograph their beautiful wedding day at the Columbia River Temple in Richland, WA. It was a gorgeous day, perfect for this madly-in-love duo.
