Leanne and Jordan | A Couple’s Session

Couple Sessions

Let me start this post with a HUGE apology for my lack of blogging this week. It’s been a crazy few days (from both a business and personal standpoint) and my creative blogging juices just weren’t flowin’. However, on a super excited note, THE CHERRY BLOSSOMS ARE HERE! AHHH! I can’t even begin to tell you guys how much I LOVE cherry blossoms. This time last year, I was still teaching myself to use my camera in manual and any attempts at taking photos were a complete and utter failure. However, this year, I have a little more experience under my belt and the second I saw the trees start to bloom, I knew I needed to head out for some photography/therapy (for us photographers…it really is therapy).

I shot a text to Leanne and Jordan last week in hopes that they would be availble for a quick session to kick-off the spring season, and they were! I was soooo excited because, I mean, how cute are they? We only had about 30 minutes of good light but it was so fun! Enjoy some of my favorites from their adorable, spur-of-the-moment shoot below!

Ahhh, so cute! Also, I wanted to let everyone know that April and May are officially BOOKED. June is filling very fast and I am now booking through August. If you are interested in a summer session, now is the time to book! Feel free to send me a message from the “contact” tab! I would love to hear from you and answer any questions you may have 🙂
Hope everyone had an amazing weekend and I promise to blog more this week!
