Do you follow someone on Instagram who you feel like you’d connect with in real life? Or maybe you have a facebook friend that makes you feel like you’ve known them forever just by their daily posts? That’s how I felt about Allie! Growing up at rival schools only 35 minutes from each other, we knew each other from sports. Since then, we have both married & both with hearts that pour out for Jesus! It was such a privilege to be capture some sweet moments between these two! They both love to spending time with each other cooking (Allie makes cinnamon rolls from scratch and I’m bummed I didn’t get to taste any!) so a few shots in the kitchen was a must. Their love radiated like no other, shot after shot, prompt after prompt. They never stopped loving on each other and they never stopped having fun!
Around this time last year (well technically it was November last year but whose counting) I had the opportunity to have capture this sweet couple (see it HERE). Maddie had just moved to Vicenza about a month prior and they were the first photos taken since their wedding. They were a breeeeeze. The entire session they were full of sweet love and genuine laughter, and they were up for anything! Even when I asked them to kiss for what probably felt like an eternity while I threw leaves around them until I got the perfect shot. Since then I have loved running into them on post, watching their travels through Facebook, and now documenting their love before welcoming their precious baby boy! I cannot tell you in words how exciting I am for these two. They are the sweetest couple and I know without a doubt their going to make the most incredible parents. Congrats Maddie and Kyle! I can’t wait to see that gorgeous baby!
I’ve wanted to capture a family session with a picnic for forever! When Chloe came to me and said she wanted a family session but wanted to do something a little different I just knew her beautiful family would be just the family I needed for this session. And to my surprise she absolutely loved the idea! Y'all, they blew me away! Chloe put together the meat platter herself and my mouth and still watering looking at it. The Italian sun was perfect, the kids were perfect enough for these shots (LOL), and the way Sam looked at Chloe seriously gave me all the feels. I couldn’t even handle how sweet their newest addition Phayre is. And don’t even get me started on the beautiful bond between mama and her nursling. If you don’t believe me just look for yourself!
