Ellie Navarro :: Newborn

Remember this pregnant belly??

It produced this darling little baby Eliana.

She's a perfect little mix of her momma and daddy. Although at the moment, she's exhibiting more of her mom's low key personality....

She was super happy to be held by her daddy, snuggled up nice and close.

My three favorites from the day:

Dave, Laura and Ellie - you make a beautiful family. And I'm so excited to watch that little baby girl grow up, and I know with no doubt that you will both be amazing parents that lead her with extravagant love.

Kyle and Katie :: Engaged!!

Kyle is my friend. Katie is my friend. And? They fell in love.

Photobucket

Photobucket

And ohmygosh it's a beautiful thing.

Photobucket

And it makes me very happy :)

Photobucket

Katie is my sister's-sister-in-law, my ex-roommate, and my beautiful, steady, quietly passionate and heartfelt friend.

Photobucket

I met Kyle when Katie and I lived together. Kyle is extraordinarily intelligent, unendingly curious, slightly quirky, and truly sincere in a way that makes you want to sit and tell him your life's story.

I just love how these two fit together. They are silly together. They are inquisitive together. They are laid back together.

Photobucket

Photobucket

They both have a grounded sense to themselves. They never seem rushed, just steady.

Photobucket

They took a very long time to fall in love, and seeing how friendship has rooted and grown over the years brings such a sense of companionship with them.

Photobucket

And I might be biased, but truly? They just look good together.

Photobucket

I'm so very fond of the both of you, and I am so very honored to have been asked to capture your love in this season of your life together.

Libby Paulson :: Senior

This is a "man, I'm so old" moment for me. I used to baby sit this lovely lady. In fact? I'm pretty certain I changed a diaper or two in there. Can you even believe she is going on her senior year?! It's pretty astounding to me. But also pretty astounding to me? She's drop dead gorgeous. I suppose I shouldn't be too surprised - she comes from great genes - but still. All that hair and those green eyes come together to build quite the stunner of a young woman.

So, as is my custom at the beginning of a shoot, I chatted with Libby as we started walking around about how this whole thing would work. I started to explain, and she put her hand on my arm and says "I watch America's Next Top Model. I know how to do the Tyra." We had a little laugh about it, but hellloooooo she wasn't kidding. These last few are my most favorite from the day. I had a ton of favorites, but I think these top the list.

Congratulations Libby on starting this next phase of life!
