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.
