My husband and I flew out to New Jersey just for this proposal and engagement session. My cousin’s boyfriend, Paul, reached out to me and asked if I could come out to photograph the special moment. Of course, I said yes! However, there was a catch- my cousin (and pretty much little sister) Lauren, couldn’t […]

I couldn’t resist the pun. Sorry (kind of). This family + this backdrop = one of my most favorite family sessions EVER. You could ask Ashley and Wade how much I was geeking out during this session, (a lot). We drove up in Wade’s truck and found the most amazing spot between these perfect pine […]
