I can’t believe it’s been six months since Rachel of Rachell Kendall Events and I put together this gorgeous canoe engagement shoot.

When we first scheduled their Brookside Gardens engagement shoot for the end of April we were afraid that all of the spring blooms would be gone. Our worries were in vain because thanks to […]
It certainly doesn’t feel like spring today, but this weekend was gorgeous! We went to see the DC cherry blossoms and every time I go I find myself thinking how blessed I am to live so close to our beautiful capitol! We had a lot of fun walking around the whole tidal basin and checking […]
A few months ago, Brent, Savannah and I met up with Brent’s brother James, his wife, Beka, and their daughter Ava and we all embarked on a Colorado adventure! This was Brent’s first time to Colorado and while I had visited with my family when I was 7 years old, my only memories were of […]
