Jim and Kelly | Couples Session | St. Patrick's County Park

I've known Kelly and Jim for a little over a year now. My husband and I were blessed to be able to photograph their wedding just over a year ago.

A few short weeks after getting married, this amazing couple received heart-breaking news. Jim had stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

The last year has been a trying one for them - however, good news came just weeks after celebrating their first anniversary: Jim was in remission.

This couple is SO, SO special. Such an inspiration. So thankful I know them. So blessed to be able to photograph them in this moment and time. And incredibly blessed to see TRUE LOVE. They are BEAUTIFUL. And their love is shining! ♥

"True love doesn't happen right away; it's an ever-growing process. It develops after you've gone through many ups and downs, when you've suffered together, cried together, laughed together." ~Ricardo Montalban

Taylor Family | Downtown South Bend

I love this family. They are so adorable. So sweet. So WONDERFUL.

I've known them for quite some time and have had the privilege of watching their beautiful girls grow up.

Had such a blast with them a few weeks ago, despite the crazy weather!

Love them. ♥ And thankful to share in some wonderful moments!

Jasmine | Class of 2013

I've known Jasmine since her middle school days. :)

She was one of 'my girls' in a program called Five Star, which seems like just yesterday.

It's hard to believe she's now a senior in high school!

Was honored that she wanted me to take her senior pictures for her!

She's such an awesome young lady - with a big heart.

Amazed at the young lady she is - and so proud of the amazing woman she's becoming. ♥

Deja | Class of 2013

Deja was one of 'my girls' in a program called Five Star, during her middle school days.

She's a senior this year - which is so hard to believe - and I was completely honored that she asked me to take her senior pictures!

She is such a strong young lady. And has a smile that can light up any room!

So proud of this young woman and all she has accomplished thus far. Excited to see what is in store for her future! ♥
