From the moment these two stepped out of their car, I was SHOOK.
Ethan and Madilyn are not only beautiful on the outside, they’re also beautiful on the inside. They have a way of making you feel at home and welcome from the first time you meet them. Another thing I love about them is that they wanted to do something really different for their engagements! Madilyn described a weird vintage vibe, but also a romantic soft vibe. I think we captured both perfectly!
We laughed our asses off and created some serious magic. I can’t wait for their upcoming wedding!
There is always such a feeling when you walk in the Fratto home. It’s a feeling of warmth and love, followed by lots of loves from two big fur babies.
Whenever I get to hang out with these two, I feel so at ease. Their energy is so beautiful and they just have a way of making you feel special and loved. Being able to witness them in their element was truly dreamy. I love watching Nicolette as the fierce dog momma she is and watching Colby watch her was even better.
We laughed and spent hours talking, it was the best day. I’m so excited to finally be sharing these images.
The Borcik Family. A family of talent, love, and curiosity.
I’ve known Arielle and Kyle for a couple of years now and I’ve always been so impressed by them and their love for their craft and one another. They are extremely talented jewelry creators and their pieces are absolutely lovely. You can check it out here. When I met their kids, I was so dazzled by their politeness and kindness but also not surprised because their parents are incredible beings. They each have their own darling personalities and they were the absolute sweetest little babes.
When I walked into their bright and welcoming home in Georgia, I felt ready to create some magic. We explored the corners of their cozy home and I felt so honored to document them in their habitat. This session was unreal from start to finish, but one of my favorite things to watch was the love Arielle has for her children. It’s fierce and patient and it made me love her even more.
I’m so excited to share these with you. Oh and PS, disco balls make every family session better.
Sometimes my brain runs wild with an idea… and sometimes it comes to life in a way I never thought was possible.
I had a vision of a golden light, dust filled, 70s vibe shoot for a long time. But I could never find the location or couple. One day I went to visit my friends Meg and Drew and I was hit with that “AH HA” moment I had been looking for. Their music room where they created beautiful things together was the location I never knew I needed. I threw my ideas at Meg and to be honest, I’m not the best at describing my thoughts, but she understands me better than most people and knew what I was thinking.
A couple weeks later, we all got together, had some lunch, and dove into the shoot that will forever be a favorite. I don’t know what it was about that Sunday afternoon, but it was pure magic. Golden light poured in the small room and the honesty flowed from Meg and Drew’s undeniable connection. My heart was full and my brain was on fire. This dream I’d had for so long was finally happening and it was better than I ever expected.
These images, these people, and these memories will always hold a special place in my heart and I’m so happy to be sharing a piece of them with you all.
I recently made a trip to one of my favorite cities (Dallas) and I was able to meet up with these golden souls. It’s always nice to catch up with past brides and grooms, but it’s even better when you get to do that and document their newest addition to the family. I’ve witnessed the love between Chelsea and Boston many times, but this time was more special than ever before. The way they look at their children is absolutely beautiful. The feeling in their home is welcoming and I won’t lie, seeing my art and all the moments I’ve already captured for them hanging on all their walls made me tear up.
I love the curiosity of Onyx and the way he expresses himself through art and music. Watching him and dad jam out was truly inspiring. Watching Chelsea with baby Beck was just as sweet! I can’t wait to continue to document these memories for this radiant family.
