bridget + justin

I still have a smile plastered on my face from yesterday.  I can't believe I got to witness two amazing souls get engaged, and in front of my friends!  No words will work for expressing what this day and these moments meant to me.  I'll just leave this here in the hopes you get as much joy from them as I do!  Congratulations again, Bridget and Justin!  Love you both tons!  xo

Oh gosh, I hope you're ready for the cutest little chunky cheeks!  Baby Grant is a little bundle of joy, and his parents are so sweet and so kind.  We met on a rare overcast day in winter and took a stroll through their neighborhood before the rain settled back in.  Even Snowy the dog was all smiles!  I can't believe I get to keep meeting all of these incredible families, and they're all so kind and gracious.  We live in an amazing country, y'all.  Enjoy <3

Dogs, little ones, and the kindest parents around – oh, and cookies!  I couldn't have asked for a better weekend adventure with this family!  There's a place in my heart for people who aren't afraid of a little rain (okay, a lot of rain) and letting their kids splash around in puddles.

I've been extremely fortunate to meet so many incredible families as part of my series on diversity, and the Lamberts are no exception.  Darby and Stephen are hilarious together, and Oliver and Tenley are quite clearly being raised by two of the best!  I loved getting to know this family and hearing stories of their childhood and how they fell in love.  If you ever have the chance to meet them, you'll be so glad you did.  I'm pretty sure I had a smile glued to my face the whole time!  Enjoy a little bit of our time together.  Hope y'all love these as much as I do!
