olivia was so much fun to photograph! her easy laugh and eclectic style shines through in her senior portrait shoot. it was so hard to narrow down her images because i loved so many of them. Face Forward and The Prettiest Pieces helped make this session magic!

i have know these babies since birth and it is so fun to watch them grow!  what better way to end a summer portrait session than with a run through the sprinkler!saunders_2017_13 saunders_2017_16 saunders_2017_22 saunders_2017_28 saunders_2017_35 saunders_2017_44 saunders_2017_47 saunders_2017_48_bw saunders_2017_51_bw saunders_2017_58 saunders_2017_59 saunders_2017_63 saunders_2017_79 saunders_2017_83

kathleen + josh’s celebration of love was the most perfect day with the most important people in their lives, their family!  i have been to A LOT of weddings, but their hand written vows brought me to tears.  i love that i get to witness such beautiful expressions of love on the job!
