Autumn is normally the time for the leaves to change color then eventually dry up and blow away; the season that marks the end of a year well lived. This one seems a little bit different...This autumn we are dancing in the flowers, welcoming the birth of a first child, and celebrating a new commitment of love!
As fall began I was running through a field of wildflowers as they too were coming to their end while Emily & Samantha were picking them as though it were spring. Mom & Dad (Sam & Kim) were relieved to see them laughing and giggling! Sometimes you just have to let kids be kids! ;)
Becca & Josh are patiently awaiting the arrival of their little princess, Lily. We did a beautiful maternity photo session in the state forest where Lily even went on a swing ride. They will make the cutest little family! I am pleased to be documenting Lily's birth when the time arrives later this month. It will be my first time photo documenting a birth and I couldn't be more excited!
Love was in the air for Pete & Sue as I photographed their engagement session at the Shrift Farm. Pete has been like a big brother to me as I have known him over half my life. I couldn't be happier for him and his beautiful bride-to-be Sue. Sometimes you just have to wait a little longer and try again to find your true love. I know a thing or two about that!
I had the pleasure of making new friends with the Shrifts and photographing them too! Who would have guessed a frantic search for a rustic barn would lead me to some of the kindest folks I could imagine. Thank you for your hospitality Ed & Mary Jo. I am sure to be photographing that charming barn of yours again in the future.
So this fall is all about new beginnings, new friendships, new families forming and kids being kids as long as they possibly can be! Almost feels like Spring!
