colleen + riley

This is exciting.

My first real people-photo post!

In the past few years, my life has been anything but predictable.  3 years ago, I would have told you, "I will never know anything about photography and will never move past my point in shoot."  2 years ago, I would have told you, "I like taking photos of my food, but will never understand this fancy camera."  1 year ago, I would have told you, "I finally understand how to use the camera, but will only photograph food."  And today, I have a photography website and am photographing people as a job?  

Get out!

I'm loving the path my life has taken and can't wait to see where I'm at in 1+ years from now.  Seriously, I have no clue!

Enough about me and on to this beautiful couple, Colleen + Riley.  They are expecting a little boy on Thanksgiving.


Colleen was glowing, in the warm fall light. 

The couple seemed so excited, while also conveying a sense of calmness.  

There is something so special about fall photos.

So sweet. 

Their dogs joined us towards the end of the shoot.

And provided a lot of entertainment!  

I can't wait to meet their little boy, and photograph these two + 1, in the very near future.

Good luck Colleen + Riley!
