December 2016

Andrew & I really love this family. They embrace us for us, let us use their washer/dryer, have us over for dinners, and let us practice being parents with Mila... Just kidding, Mila is WAY too easy to really practice with. Haha. If our child can be like her, we will definitely be thankful!

I am SO happy Sabryna asked me to photograph them again in December. It's extraordinary to see how much Mila has grown over just.a year! In fact, every time we see her, I cannot believe how much she has grown from the last time. 

We decided to photograph at the Elwood Butterfly Preserve, early in the morning, and it couldn't have been more perfect. Sabryna styled everything, their outfits, the donut picnic, and even made the wooden pallet coasters! She is incredibly talented... you should hire her to style your shoot/party. Seriously though. Haha.

Anyways, hoping we keep up the tradition of yearly shoots!
