I am so grateful to have been present for an amazing bachelorette party/bridal shower weekend, celebrating the gorgeous Kate, with her crew of some the lovliest friends you'll ever meet! Weddings are obviously very special for one big reason(getting married to the one you love duh!), but what is less mentioned surrounding weddings, is the outpouring of love from those who are closest to you. Kate has no shortage of people in her life who were eager to celebrate with her and made her weekend absolutely magnificent. From pretty details, to delicious food, everything was so very special, and reflected the joy that they felt for her as she prepared to marry her perfect match! Now the wedding is already past, and I am so excited to share that with you in my next post! For now, here are some of my favorite captures from that weekend. <3
This sweet family has such a special place in my heart. I have never in my life met such giving, kind, hard working souls, and I am so grateful to count them among my friends. AveNue Orchard is one of my absolute places to bring my clients. It is stunningly gorgeous all year long, and I have been so lucky to have been welcomed by Ronnie and his family, so when I finally got to photograph the faces behind all the magic, my heart nearly burst with happiness. With the beautiful apple blossoms, loving smiles, and tiny baby goats, you're heart is seriously going to melt, I know mine did!
Life is full of beautiful families that come in all shapes and sizes <3 Sometimes, things might not fit into that cookie cutter game-plan we are supposed to have and that's okay, especially when the world will soon be welcoming a sweet little boy named River, who I feel will become a part of my own family. Nikki and Ryan are going to have one tall, gorgeous boy on their hands very soon! Can you believe this total babe is only 5 days away from her due date here? Counting down the days until we get to welcome River into a big and beautiful world! I am so glad we got to squeeze in a quick maternity session before it was too late(plus you can't NOT photograph a pregnant lady who looks this good). Side note: Can someone pretty please hit me up for some more winter sessions??? They are stunning, I am obsessed, you won't regret it!
