SHERRY+TROY // ENGAGEMENT

I’m consistently blown away at how creative people are. Troy proposed to Sherry using this sweet skateboard while out with friends. How cute and original is that?!

It may have been a surprise but these two aren’t; both so laid back and down to earth - just my kinda folk.

How were you proposed to? Any wild or creative ways to pop the question??


ALLISON+TRISTAN // LIFESTYLE

If you could imagine a real life version of a Nicholas Sparks movie, Allison and Tristan are just that.

Roll equal parts bubbly, charming, funny, sweet and smooshy into one and there you have it - a couple beautiful people with infectious personalities. Photographing couples in love has to be the best part of my job, not to mention the easiest. C’mon - it’s pretty much impossible to NOT capture a cute moment between them!


DANA+JESSE // LIFESTYLE

As I sit here and type up this post, I’m as red as a boiled lobster. It’s +34 with the humidity and I’m wishing it would let up. But only just a little bit ‘cause if we wind up back where this photo shoot went down….I might cry.

This was undoubtedly the coldest day of the year. So cold that Jesse dubbed it “minus fuckity-fuck” outside. Yes, that is a technical term. Meteorologists use it when your eyelids stop blinking and the breath in your lungs become icebergs immediately after exiting your mouth and nose. So cold that poor Paisley couldn’t walk more than a few feet at a time and needed to be carried and snuggled. So cold that our wind burned faces sort of resembled my current lobster status.

Needless to say we didn’t have it in us to last an entire sessions length. It was a mini at most but they were rockstars about it. Even with sniffles, icicle eyelashes and snow up to their knees they managed to look like friggin’ models. <—- the norm for them, btw.

As always, here’s a handful from that day in the North Pole. And I am definitely looking forward to making up the session in the same field this summer, minus the frostbite.
