Brynne & Bryson :: Engaged!

Beautiful, golden, sunset light.  That's what I had in mind for this session.  However, when it rained off and on all day and left us with a cloudy evening, we rolled with it.  Brynne and Bryson weren't worried at all!  And the weather made it so much fun.  We had dramatic clouds, sparkling sprinkles, and one super cute couple!   

Brynne and Bryson have been dating for 3 1/2 years!  They met in college, where he spent pretty much her whole freshman year wearing her down until she wanted to date him!  Even though they come from different parts of the state, both grew up in a sailing family.  That made this marina engagement session just perfect for the two of them!

Their wedding is set for April.  It will actually be on the very day of their 4 year dating anniversary!  How perfect!

It seems that white gold is all the rage these days, so it is so refreshing to see Brynne's beautiful, yellow gold ring!  It looks so very classy.

These shots were a must-have, because this cute couple actually met through the swim team!

We ended the evening on the beach . . . such a romantic spot! 

We finally had to call it a night as it began to sprinkle more and more heavily.  But not before getting a few shots that captured the sprinkles, and Brynne & Bryson's love, in glowing light!

Thanks so much, Brynne and Bryson, for a fun evening!  I absolutely can't wait for your wedding in April!!

Casey, John, Avery, and Amelia

Avery and Amelia, how big you two are getting!  It feels like it was just a short while ago that I was photographing Amelia's newborn session!  And Avery had only recently turned 1!  Now, can it be true, Avery is turning 2 and Amelia is 8 months old! 
Casey and John, thanks for coming to me to document your beautiful, growing family!

Maybe this is off-topic, but I have to say that strawberry blonde has always been my favorite color of hair, and Casey, your shade is just gorgeous!!  Can I borrow your hair for a day? ;)

Little Amelia is so much more grown-up than the newborn I last saw!  Still such a pretty baby!

Avery is one high energy little girl!  I spent most of her photo time chasing her with my camera, haha!  But she did stop to pose for me every once in a while :) That is, with the help of two grandmas and mom & dad!


Oops!  I didn't pull this flag out of the ground . . . no, it must have been someone else . . . really!

I loved the beautiful flowers and well-kept landscaping at Blanchette Park's garden.  It was the perfect spot for a dry summer session! 

Amelia was so great at doing what she does - being cute. :)


Thanks again to a lovely little family!  I can't wait to see the girls continue to grow up! :)
