Nieces are such a treat!  Our sweet Jaylyn girl begged me to take walks with her, introduced us all to her American Girl dolls with fresh hair styles from the American Girl Store and reminded me over and over of the joy of being a child this week.

Chicago Botanical Garden Engagement Session

Randi & Curt met me at the CHICAGO BOTANIC GARDEN on what turned out to be the first sunny day of the Spring.  It was just the kind of day to catch Spring Fever and I had so much fun spending it with these two.

It was so exciting to travel down to Oxford, Mississippi for this engagement session.  Marielle and Matthew are the absolute sweetest couple and to capture them in a place that was so significant to them… their college alma mater town, the place they first met and where their relationship budded… was just perfect.  I simply cannot wait for their Chicago wedding with Hello Darling Styling at The Peninsula Hotel next March.
