{Cate} is Ten!

10 years old.  Daily, this beauty’s father and I look at her in awe.  She is kind, funny, sweet and smart. She is all that we could have ever hoped for and more.  Though we have a hard time wrapping our minds around the fact that our baby girl is 10, we couldn’t be more thrilled with getting to experience every phase of this wonderful life alongside her.

For her birthday, she wanted go back to her city of birth, Cincinnati! There are lots of iphone pics of that sweet trip here.  We have so many people who helped us celebrate this double-digit birthday, and we are so very grateful to you all.

It took us a while to think of the most fitting 10-year-old-photo-shoot-idea, but once we did…it was perfection. Cate loves anything to do with fashion and shopping.  She is always putting together cute outfits and loves to accessorize. :)  So, birthday photos could only be one place…the mall!cate10-26cate10-25

{John+Savanna}::Engaged

My baby cousin is engaged. How is this possible when, just yesterday (it seems) I was shooting her senior portraits?!  She’s finished college, has a “real job” and has met the love of her life.  I could not be more thrilled for this sweet girl and her great guy.J_S_Engaged-5

This is John and Savanna.  And even though our family has LOTS of “John’s”, we’re more than happy to welcome another.  😉 J_S_Engaged-6The words they use to describe themselves as a couple are; goofy, loving and stubborn.  It was beautiful to see how well they compliment each other and make each other laugh.

J_S_Engaged-1J_S_Engaged-2

These two crazy kids met at their Krav Maga gym. They love going to the gym together, watching movies and hanging out with friends and family. J_S_Engaged-4In LOVE with this image. It’s so peaceful, full of strength and protection. J_S_Engaged-3J_S_Engaged-7J_S_Engaged-19J_S_Engaged-8Oh sweet cousin, you are so so soooooo gorgeous…J_S_Engaged-9

John proposed to Savanna in her classroom, dressed as Batman. He had come into her class as the “Mystery Reader” and then popped the question in front of her class.  This image was one of Savanna’s fitting requests, I love how it turned out!

J_S_Engaged-10J_S_Engaged-11J_S_Engaged-12J_S_Engaged-13You two are so fun and, obviously, so much in love. Thank you so much for trusting me with these memories.

Most sincere congratulations…can’t WAIT for the wedding! ♥J_S_Engaged-14
