AMANDA + NATE /// SAN DIEGO CAMPGROUND SESSION

A few months spent in the camper, fixing leaky windows in the storm. Listening to baby Swan's heartbeat every day. Playing dorky games at the picnic table. Eating frozen gluten free donuts from Vons. Dipping their toes in the campground's hot tub. Taking their dog, Charlie, for sunset walks through the neighborhood. 

Amanda and Nate are two of my best friends. When they told me they were going to come to San  Diego for a few months and live in their camper, I was stoked. It's been so great spending this time with them, especially with Swan on the way. They head back to Joshua Tree today and I'm hoping the next time we see them, Amanda's belly will be twice this size. Love you guys!

GRACE + KEVIN /// COLORADO ENGAGEMENT

many times throughout our day together, kevin would just start dancing with grace and spinning her around. it was one of the sweetest things i have ever seen. dancing is so timeless and carefree and full of joy, just like these two. i'm so happy my path crossed with these two because they are just some of the kindest people you could ever meet.

i met these two a few minutes before we started shooting and by the end, they were inviting me to dinner at their house and shouting "WE LIKE YOU!" as they walked away from my car. sooooo, yeah, i like them.
