All you need is love...and dogs.

"It was rather beautiful; the way he put her insecurities to sleep.  The way he dove into her eyes and starved all the fears and tasted all the dreams she kept coiled beneath her bones." ~ christopher poindexter

This poem really struck me when deciding how to explain what the relationship between these two beautiful humans looks like.  A beautiful girl, some ups and downs in life, takes a chance on a fun-loving guy.  And he fills her up unlike any man ever.  You can see that she in turn overflows his heart as well.  When two souls are so perfectly matched it warms the hearts of everyone around them.  The joy felt when you finally find that person that wants you to be 100% yourself 100% of the time so that they can 100% love you for YOU...well scroll down and you'll see what that looks like.

I am so happy for my dear friend.  The love these two have for one another, and their fur babies is the stuff fairytales are made of.  So dreamy yet so true.  Congratulations on your engagement you two!  I look forward to your wedding day and capturing more monumental moments for you.

They grow so quickly....

This little family holds a unique place in my heart and life.  You see without this here Momma, I would not have been blessed to be a step-mom.  This woman has shared her oldest with me for 18 years.  A gift and blessing that completes my life.  As you can see, she creates beautiful humans, full of spunk, sass and character.  Capturing their smiles, laughter, quiet moments and true connections was a priceless experience for me.  Thank you Nicole for trusting my vision with your family photos and for blessing me with the most incredible kid on earth!
