happiness! i never dreamed that when i finally found my most favorite local hair stylist, that i would also be finding one of my most favorite future clients! this beautiful woman has not only referred me business, but she has given me the honor, (and joy!) of documenting some of the most important, memorable moments in her own life. she just makes me smile, for so many reasons. her fiancé is wonderful. their sweet baby boy is perfection. and i was not at all surprised to learn that her family and closest friends are absolute gems as well. i had such a blast capturing their engagement party. i’m sure it is a sign of things to come at their wedding in october, and for that i am beyond excited! they simply remind me why love my job.
this amazing gal went above and beyond the call of duty. and people, this girl knows how to throw a party! no detail was overlooked, no glass was left empty, and every guest was made welcome beyond measure. from the intricate display of food, to the live band, to the silly string barrage, she knew how to keep a guest wanting more.
connection is one of the reasons i love photography. it’s the kind of stuff that makes the world go round. it’s a reason to smile. witnessing it, capturing it…helping people to remember it. it’s just good stuff. it’s so much easier to stand back and click away when i’m watching people connect, laugh, play, smile. i love capturing life as opposed to a facade. don’t get me wrong, posed images can be beautiful, but there’s just something special about recording life as it happens.
