more about me

World travelin’, sustainability guru, humanitarian, foster and adoptive mommin’, photographer, photobooth-er, educator, multiple hat wearing entrepreneur. This girl’s love language is hugs and her tank is filled by serving others. You can find her under a palm tree, on a mountain, renovating a vintage trailer/house or running through the sprinklers with her husband, two boys and three fur babies.

Man. I just had to steal this inevitable quote for the subject like, from the groom to be himself, Nick. Very fitting.
It’s engagement sessions like this, that I adore. Not only because they are that cool but because I get that rare and “make my day” kind of email from.. NOT THE BRIDE to be.. but the groom to be. Nick emailed me letting me know how much fun they had and it’s moments like this {tissue} that I pause an think “this is the start of a beautiful relationship.” {corny?} I know I know. But really. Not only is their relationship so fantastic together, the kind of couple that makes each other better people when the other is around but also because I get to spend some pretty intense time with these two as they plan their big day and hopefully in the mean time, gain some pretty rad friends— I love it!
So Leah, as I said before… I approve! {smiles}
Enjoy your engagement session and congratulations again to Leah & Nick!

    PS – I highly suggest the general public practice safe stretching before attempting any high flying ninja kicks. Groin is still recovering.
