Engagement Session

Our engagement photos have just been delivered!!

I haven’t been very active on the blog lately, as I’ve been going though quite a difficult period in my life – two months ago I was in a very serious car accident which left me with a traumatic brain injury and put my life and plans on hold until further notice. The time will come for a post about that, but right now I’d rather focus on something wonderful, like love and moving forward! I am so very thrilled about how these pictures came out, especially since we weren’t totally sure I’d be able to stay on my feet for long enough to capture some good photos. I feel endless gratitude towards the team of women who spent hours making me feel beautiful on the outside, while my insides are still working to heal. My makeup artist was fantastic and carefully covered the signs of wear and tear on my face while still keeping me natural and feeling like myself. My hairstylist worked her magic on my head, hiding my scars and hair loss with a gentle hand. And our fantastic photographer was just perfect! She was encouraging and creative, and was able to capture images that showed nothing of my accident; only love, peace, and happiness in the present. I’ve always known that I am an exceptionally lucky girl, but now I truly feel it to my core! Thank you so much to everyone who made this shoot possible and, without further ado, here are the photos!
