Woohoo!!! It’s that time of year again! I love the end of the year for so many reasons {yes, Christmas}, but I love that it’s often a time of reflection. Pulling together the photos for this blog post was a great way for me to remember all of the fun I’ve had with my couples…

Y’all, I AM SO EXCITED to share today’s blog with you. This is one of my favorite couple sessions. I was trying to pinpoint what was so great about it: the stunning couple, frosty winter scene, adorable coffee shop atmosphere, genuine joyful smiles, or the laughs we shared while taking these. Yeah, it’s hard to pinpoint something,…

Growing up in the mid-west, I’ve learned to never expect the weather to be a certain way. If it’s fall, don’t expect cool breezes and crisp mornings. If it’s February, you might experience 60 degree days, and then a snow storm a week later. Anything is possible on the weather spectrum at nearly any point.…
