An Angel Has Arrived!

Meet Gwen Marie Martin the beautiful child of Chris and Shelley Martin who you’ve seen probably seen in a previous post. Baby was born on July 23rd right on her mother’s birthday! Shelley was blessed with the gift of life on the day or her own birth…how wonderful is that? I know that baby will grow up to be an amazing human being seeing that both her parents are nothing less than kind, caring, and principled  individuals doing their best to make the wold a better place. You’ll be seeing more of baby from time to time…but these are just a few shots of her about 10 hours old.

Welcome to the world Gwen, may love and joy surround you throughout your life!

Sarah and Andy: Love Revealed

I had a blast yesterday evening shooting this sweet couple! After the first shot, I knew that it was going to be a really easy shoot.  You can easily tell they are SO in love by the way they look at each other. And just see the smile on Sarah’s face when Andy kisses her! It’s like she’s glowing from the inside out!

Sarah and Andy met at OSU and Andy proposed to Sarah on campus with a poem (how SWEET is that?)…so it was the perfect place to take their engagement pictures.

Sarah and Andy: It was an honor to shoot you and to capture your love! It was really SO wonderful to watch you interact…your love really shined through and it was amazing to be in its presence!:)

Ode to an Amazing Sister!

Shout out to my wonderful sister who everyone mistakes for me…we sound like each other on the phone, like the same things, cry over the same Oprah episodes, and have similar convictions for learning and growing each and every day. Growing up, I made her do A LOT of things for me…like clean the bathrooms, get my school supplies…and basically serve me as I wanted. I’m sorry Priya for being such a meanie! I hope to make it up to you!;)

Priya will be married next year and has just bought a new condo with her fiance in Toronto! Priya, I’m so happy to watch you build your new life and I wish you all the happiness in the world! You are the best sister in the world and it’s soooo cool that you’re also my best friend! If I had known we were going to grow up to be best friends, I might have made you scrub less bathrooms…but hey, I’m at your disposal now for the rest of my life (not a bad deal if you ask me!)

To Sunny and Priya: you guys are an awesome dream team and I know together you’ll rock the business world with your charisma, talent and incredible work ethic!  I love you guys!

Love Exemplified: Chris and Shelley Martin

Words can not describe the wonderful friendship that Chris and Shelley have offered me!  Their exemplary love for one another is wonderful to see in action.  Shelley, I can’t wait to be there when the baby comes…I’ll warm my camera up!:)

I LOVE you guys!:)
