Kimberly + David {One Year}

I want to wish Kimberly + David a Happy One Year Anniversary! When they eloped last year, Kimberly’s ring wasn’t ready so they tied a string on her finger. This is one year later and they came to me on a beautiful fall day to show me the ring that David personally designed for her; and it was a beauty! I love these two. Perfect example of when clients become dear friends!

Chloe + Christian {Engaged}

Since the Blog is my way of telling a story of what I see as beautiful and significant in the world, I wanted to put this up because my baby girl, Chloe, got engaged to her dream come true, Christian Sagum, a few moments before 11/13/2016…which is exactly one year since he asked her to be his girlfriend. They are such a match made in heaven and everyone we know is so excited for them! Grandma Lola said it best when she stated, “When it’s right, it’s right!” So IT IS! Wedding is set for a Friday in February 2017.
P.S. None of these pictures are mine. They were taken by someone else on an iPhone or I screenshot them from a video. :)

Heather Bonga {Senior}

This was technically Heather’s senior photo session, but her boyfriend, Tommy, came along and I ended up with a bunch of sweet photos of the two of them! Wasn’t sure how I was going to categorize the album, but decided not to stress myself out at all and make it one big CELEBRATION! How about if we celebrate Heather graduating from high school? Celebrating the beautiful weather that is finally here at The Morton Arboretum?! And last but not least, celebrating Love and Friendship. Yeah, I’m totally okay with all that! :)
