How cute are they?! Ugh. I just love these two so much. They're both soft & tender souls. So kind. Fantastic friends, both to each other and to everyone they meet. I could literally hang out with them all day. For their 1-year anniversary, they wanted to do a portrait session at home. I came over that morning, had coffee with them and then got to shooting. They finished sipping on their coffee in their breakfast nook, then baked cookies for brunch #YUM. They played some music, cuddled some more, then we went outside and took some portraits by their citrus trees. I felt like I was shooting for a Southern Living spread or something haha but so much better. So real. I could re-do this day over and over again and I wouldn't be able to make it anymore perfect than it already was.
Happy anniversary, you two! Thank you for allowing into the most intimate parts of your lives and trusting me to document them. Let's do this every year, kay? Kay.

This was probably one of my favorite portrait sessions to date. The light, the love, the cake! It was all so perfect...and dare I say, yummy! It's not everyday that I begin a session with freshly brewed coffee and then a huge slice of wedding cake to take home - but this needs to become a thing, FRFR.
The Stephens just celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary and they wanted to document it by sharing a normal morning together and letting me be the third wheel. As they sat on their (SUPER comfy) couch, I learned about how they first met and observed the soft smiles they shared as they reflected on their early memories. *CUE THE FEELS* I even got to hear a song they wrote together on the piano - I thought it was cool they trusted me enough to let me in their little world in that way.
We ended their session with a stroll around the Kinderlou Forest Golf Club. With it being midday, the sun was-a-blazin' but it created the most beautiful light I've ever seen during that time - I already said it was perfect, but I'll say it again #PERF but I do believe it was their connection that really made the day what it was.
Thank you, Daniel + Erica, for opening up your home and allowing me the honor of capturing new memories for you. It is my hope that you both will be able to look back at these images with fondness and will be able to further cherish this specific season of life together for years to come.
