Well, whattya know? After considering dropping this blog altogether, I figured I’d give it another go. Turns out blogging is like riding a bike..once you start, if you love it…you never stop. I’m hoping to rekindle my love of blogging over the next few weeks, so bear with me if I’m a little wobbly at first..hopefully I’ll hit a groove & remember how once-upon-a-time it was one of my favorite things to do. Truth is, I’m a different person than I was this time last year. For the longest time I wasn’t sure where blogging fell into my list of priorities. I used to think the only way my business would thrive is by blogging, blogging, blogging. But the past year has proven that theory wrong. This has been the year of rebuilding & leaving things to fate, to God’s will. I’ve coined it “the year of no goals.” Crazy? Maybe. But also incredibly refreshing. So much of my life has been goal focused & after the life-altering events of last fall, I decided it was time for a change. And as it turns out…this year of no goals is shaping up to be one of the biggest & best of my career. I have so much to share with you, my friends. I hope you’ll add me to your google reader & come along for the ride.

Now onto the good stuff..

If ever there were a perfect couple to bring me back to blogging, its Leila & Bryan. The very first time we met at the studio, it was clear we were a perfect fit. We spent an hour laughing, talking wedding details & tossing out ideas for this session. Leila is so warm & fun to be around. I could swear we were best friends in a past life. I love that she isn’t afraid to laugh at herself ( turns out she’s slightly bottle-opening challenged ;) and is always up for an adventure. Bryan & I share a love of Land Rovers..so when he mentioned they wanted to bring along his vintage Rover for the shoot, my eyes lit up. And from the minute they showed up to the studio for this shoot, it was better than I had imagined it to be. Everything just fell into place so effortlessly. You know you have an incredible couple when they don’t even bat an eye at your requests to climb on top of a car & juggle apples. Leila & Bryan..I adore you guys. Thanks for being you. Next September can’t come soon enough..

  1. Ohhh the golden goodness. Sweet perfection.

  2. Beautiful post!! I love the addition of the Land Rover and the apples!! Such a fun-loving couple!! =)

  3. There is something sweet about the layout of this kind of blog. It provides sharper photos wrapped into a nicely layed out page. The font type and size, the thin border lines are all nice KK touches that compliment your rich story telling images. That said, I’m glad you are in a healthier state KK. I’m sure you’ll know when too much is too much.
