I go so far back with this next lovely face that it’s a surprise this is her debut on the blog! Janelle and I go back to my university days….me, her and our good friend Amanda had so many adventures together….John Mayer concerts, summer nights at Half Moon, ballet classes and many many summer days floating around to The Wreckers. I was a little bit of a hermit when I was in university…that all changed when I met Janelle! She is so confident and outgoing…I would like to think a little of that confidence rubbed off on me during all our years hanging out together!
Fast forward a few years and I got the chance to photograph Janelle and her husband Dustin! It was so great to have them in front of my camera, before I even got to the session I knew it was going to be amazing and that Janelle was going to be such a natural in front of the camera. They didn’t disappoint! The loves of these two just jumps off the screen! They are so cute and sooooo happy….with good reason, this shoot was extra special because they were using it to announce the start of their adventures in parenting!!
Well enough from me….on to the photos! ENJOY!
Last time we saw these two we were pretending to be at the beach….but this time we really were at the beach!! Just two weeks ago the weather was quite a bit different outside, instead of pouring rain it was sunshiney and warm!!! We dug our toes into the sand, blew up some beach balls and hit the beach!! And as always, I had a blast with this crew!
A few weeks ago I had the privilege of meeting sweet little Ryan! You’ll remember his mom and dad from their bump photos earlier this summer and Ryan made his grand entrance in late July. We had a relaxed newborn session capturing this cutie as he checked out his new digs! Ryan gave us so many different expressions, I love getting to capture all those newborn faces….awake, sleeping, yawning….and I don’t even mind capturing a cry or two 😉
When I first came across The Joyful Life Co on Instagram their business immediately interested me…those of you who know me know my motto….Choose JOY! So naturally I was drawn to these girls and loved what their business stood for even before I met them. Fast forward a few months and a note from Missy popped up in my Instagram inbox and I was SO excited! What started out as a branding shoot for their business turned into a test shoot for mini sessions! I feel like I was meant to meet these girls….we had a blast at our shoot together and now i’m SO excited to share these images with you and invite you to our first mini sessions together!!
