This couple stole my heart in the first 10 minutes of sitting on the couch at the studio, holding hands & sharing the details they have planned for their fall wedding. The happiness was written all over their faces, and I found myself tearing up as they talked about their plans. We’re all fighting a battle of some sort & after spending time with Heather & Eric I can tell you the battle they’re winning with Eric’s health is one that has made them hold on a little tighter, smile a little bigger, laugh a little louder, and celebrate every….single….day. They won’t officially be husband & wife until October, but even a quick glimpse into their life together & its so obvious what a strong team they make. I love that they chose to use the backyard of Eric’s house ( their new home together ) as a backdrop for half of the session, and the front porch swing at Heather’s house for a few cozy shots. The old blue chevy was sitting in a neighbors driveway….and turned out to be a spot I couldn’t pass up ;)

Thanks to Heather & Eric for the inspiration..and for sharing their beautiful connection with me. And thanks to my cousin Alisha for trusting me with her best friend’s memories. Giant hugs to you all…








Heather has the MOST amazing laugh. This shot is the intro to my new lifestyle portrait site, btw :)

Have you ever seen a cuter pup than Miss Baxter? Yes, she’s a girl, and yes, they let Eric’s nephew name her :)
