Brenna & Bruno Wedding

Brenna and Bruno are an absolutely lovely couple, and I'm fortunate to have been a part of their beautiful wedding day.  Originally from Iowa and Brazil, Brenna and Bruno brought friends and family from all around the country and all around the world, to celebrate their union at the Fountains Ballroom.  A stunning gown on an equally stunning bride, a dapper groom, a very cool first dance and special touches that brought in different parts of their lives, it was altogether a wonderful day:)

Amalia - with children

Ok, I'll admit, I'm dying over these.  I loved Amalia's portraits that we did of just her - because moms deserve some TLC and recognition for how beautiful they are!  (see them here!!)  After we did her portraits, grandma brought the kids in and we made some more beautiful photos of Amalia with her little ones.  Bastian was such a good boy, and we had a lot of fun putting a little toy on top of his head (tricks, I tell ya) and talking about his band aid.  Poppy actually had some fun too, her unofficial (and funny) nickname is "Mini Godzilla" and was happiest in mama's arms.  I love the moments where Bastian and Amalia just talk for a few moments:)  Thank you for the wonderful afternoon everyone!

Amalia - Beauty

How often do moms get to be on the other side of the camera, pampered, styled and looking gorgeous?  Enjoy the first part of Amalia's photo session, before the kids came to the studio, where we could just have some fun and create some beautiful photos of just her.  Don't you deserve this for yourself?  Thank you Amalia for trusting me and my vision!
