Engagement portraits at Mueller State Park :: Samantha + Joe

I’m very fond of Samantha. I’ve been photographing her since she was a teenager! Over the years I’ve documented a few milestones in Samantha’s and her family’s lives, but I’m extra excited about this one: she’s engaged to a great guy! Their wedding is scheduled for next summer and I can’t wait! In October I spent a glorious, golden afternoon with Joe, Samantha and her daughter Izzy at Mueller State Park, taking their engagement portraits. It’s a beautiful spot and I love how these came out. I can’t wait for their wedding!

What a sweet little family they make!

Nicy’s 40th birthday portraits

I got really behind in sharing photos over the summer and fall, and some great shots got neglected. Case in point: Nicy’s 40th birthday photo shoot, which definitely deserves to be seen! Sooooo, better late than never, please enjoy these fun portraits¬†¬†Nicy is a wonderfully evolved and positive human and I was so glad to capture some of her joie de vivre in pictures. Instead of lamenting turning 40, she celebrated it and I love that! It was truly a pleasure photographing this gorgeous woman!
