Indy and Lily

I love working with kids, and these two have been some of my favorites. He was very outgoing and playful, Little Miss Lily, on the other hand was very shy and withdrawn… That is, until I caught that first picture and showed it to her, then, she opened right up and was all smiles.  These are two of my favorite photos from the shoot.

Dalida and Matthew

This lovely couple contacted me regarding an engagement session. They needed a good photo for their Save the Dates and seem to have fallen in love with this one.  I hope to work with them again in the future!
