There is nothing more beautiful to me in my experience capturing love stories than to have the honor of watching their story unfold year after year. In my early days of pursuing photography, our friends, Ivan and Shay were the first engagement session I photographed, and I will never forget it. They have a fun, easy-going, energy together and have no trouble pretending that I’m not even there when they’re being photographed. They are comfortable being just who they are, and it’s evident they’re both at their happiest, together. As time past, they set a wedding date, and asked me to be their wedding photographer in Omaha August of 2012. By far, one of the most fun weddings I’ve photographed, let alone attended, mingled, danced at. (: I was beyond elated and honored when they reached out to me in search of a Fort Collins Maternity Photographer to capture the final chapter before they were to welcome their first child.
It’s an understatement to say I was a little excited when Shay let me in on a little secret that a new member would be joining the two of them in July of this year. Those who know these two would agree they’re equipped to be incredible parents, and so many of us share in excitement for the journey ahead, and are cheering them on on the next chapter. We’re so excited for you two starting a family together – so many blessings ahead.
