Chris and Sarah - the proposal!

Sarah may have been a little grumpy about the mix-up with their dinner reservations.  Little did she know that it was all part of Chris' plan to take her on a walk along the canal and ask her to be his wife.  It was a beautiful evening on the canal and though they had to do a lot of walking to get there, I'm pretty sure that when Chris got down on one knee and Sarah realized what was happening, it was all worth it.

These two were in their own little happy world so they didn't need any guidance from me.  I was just there to preserve this exciting moment in photos.

Chris, great job in planning all of this and carrying it out perfectly.  It was so fun to witness the surprise and the overflowing happiness that followed.  I'm honored to have been asked to document this special moment.  Actually, photographing a proposal was on my "photography bucket list", so thanks for helping me check that one off!
I'm so happy for you guys!  Congratulations and best wishes!

Meet Madison - Class of 2015

Madison just started her senior year of high school and it was so fun to be able to capture this episode of her life in photos.  I just love shooting seniors because there is always that mixture of uncertainty and excitement that is uplifting for me. 
Now the fact that my great-niece is a senior makes me feel really old, but I got past that and we had a great time on this photo shoot.
Madison, I don't think you've ever looked prettier!

Then her very sweet boyfriend brought her a coke - how thoughtful was that?  So of course we to get him in on the photos.

They're so cute together.

I saved this one for last because, seriously Madison, you look stunning!
