fairfield county winter maternity session

A quick tease of last week’s winter maternity session in Fairfield County. We did a mix-up of indoor and outdoor shooting (inspired by one of my most favorite maternity shoots of all time – Lauren + Nate) and I can’t wait to share the entire spread. Maternity sessions became a huge passion for me last year and as we head into 2014, I hope to have them be a special focus of my business this year. There’s something about an expectant momma that inspires my soul and brings me lots and lots of joy!

san francisco scenery

This past fall we traveled to San Francisco to visit our friends, Kaelyn and Elliott, and they made sure to shuffle us around to see the city (and drink lots of yummy Lagunitas IPA!). Here’s a few shots from my time down at Pier 39, Chrissy Field and hiking to see a breathtaking view of the Golden Gate Bridge!

winter family photo session

I figured I’d send off winter by sharing this sweet winter family photo session. I’ve been hibernating all winter long (more on that soon!) but it’s time to get in the swing of things again and I’ve got TONS of wedding photos, engagement sessions and family sessions to share over the next few weeks.

This family is so special to me. The kids are so well-behaved and wonderful but most importantly, their momma believes in letting them play and just be kids. Our photo sessions are extra special because we don’t sit around posing for photos – we all just typically run around together and play. This session came after a blast of snow and we just went.with.it. The kids were suited up and we all played in the snow. Lots of love to the K family for EVERYTHING you done for me over the past year!

Six.

This Sunday, Jeremy + I will celebrate six years of being married. I tell people I’ve been married forever and they laugh at me and ask how many years. When I tell them it’ll be 6 years this weekend, they often say, “oh, yeah, well that IS a long time.” (Funny – no one ever said that when I said 5 years but once we hit the 6 we apparently got real old. ha.)

I’ve written about our anniversary before. My year five and four posts are the ones I still like to reread when I want to reflect on our life together; I was overwhelmed with so many thoughts about us when I wrote them.  Last year as I wrote the anniversary post, I dreamed of what this year’s post would be – all the things I’d want to say + share. And today, I can’t believe how different things are than I had thought they’d be as we neared our sixth anniversary – some for the better and some not.

So this year I’m choosing to carry my anniversary post in my head and most importantly, in my heart. I’ll probably recite it aloud to Jeremy as we snuggle together one night, tears streaming down my face as they always do when I type them for the blog. And I know that the opening line to my post will start with my sweet man’s words that he said to me the other night … “I just know this is going to be our year. I just KNOW it.” J – I carry those words with me every minute of every day + I love you for saying + believing in them so much.

jonathan edwards vineyard engagement session

A Jonathan Edwards vineyard engagement session? Yes, please.  The storm clouds came in and out all throughout the session (wait until you see the color shifts in the sky and clouds in the photos) and we worried it may rain but the storms held off, thank god! Elise + Rui  - thanks for dancing through the vineyard with me and being so present and in the moment. Your session was personal and intimate and I loved being able to experience it with you both.  Big thanks to Dana Bartone for the beautiful job on Elise’s makeup. Can’t wait for your intimate backyard wedding next year!
