It was a beautiful and quiet morning filled with lots of snuggles, flower picking, toe-dips into the water and shoulder rides. It was such an honor to be the one to give the Rieken family snapshots of sweet moments with their newer addition at the place they now call home.

In just a few days I get to capture Nicolette and Jared get married! With busy summer schedules, we were able to get an engagement session in last week. You know what they say “better late than never” and that is so true! Meeting clients in person is so special to me. It helps us to build a relationship and feel comfortable in each other’s presence. Even if it happens the week before the wedding.

I have to say, this summer has been AHHH-MAZINGGG!! I spent the last week of July in the Catskills Mountains attending a Feminist Photo Vacay. Yep! Sounds amazing? Yeah, it really was! Over the course of a week I met an incredible group of feminist folx, lounged poolside at an EPIC house in the mountains, drank way too much sparkling water and ended our time together capturing magic at Scribner’s Lodge. Scribner’s Lodge is stunning! I would honestly love to go back just to relax. The decor, aesthetic, staff and landscape was phenomenal.

Katrina reached out to me and wanted to book a session just for herself. This session was her birthday gift to herself. I’ve had the pleasure of photographing Katrina’s family a few times and I can say that from the few times i’ve been around her, she is a helper, giving, funny and adores her family. This was special for her but also for me. I had the chance to deliver something SO special to someone who is constantly giving to others.

I spent this past weekend in New York City exploring and meeting up with Constance and Alexander. They took me to an amazing Korean BBQ restaurant for dinner on my first night in town. We ate, drank, talked about life, their love and how excited we all were for the engagement session.
