Sara + Bryan’s engagement session was a first for me – when they get married (in less than two weeks!!), Bryan will be gaining two daughters, so it only made sense to include Sara’s girls in their session, making it my first “hybrid” family-engagement-session!  I’ve had the opportunity to spend time with this little family twice now, and both times, it’s been evident just how much Sara’s girls already love Bryan.  They are completely comfortable being themselves with him, and I can only imagine how much that must mean to Sara!

We spent the evening walking, and talking, and laughing (mostly at the girls’ antics), and I love all the playful images we walked away with.  I’m super excited to share my favorites from this little “family e-session”!

Did I mention their pup, Wallace, joined us for a few photos, too??  (Did you catch him in the photo on the left, above?)

Sara has the cutest little nose-crinkling smile!  I love it so much!

This next one of Sara + Bryan is one SUCH a fave of mine!!

And can we talk about how stunning Sara’s ring is??

Sara, Bryan, thank you for trusting me to capture this season of life for you!  I already can’t wait to celebrate with you and the girls on your wedding day!!

    Amazing pictures of a beautiful family! The love they all share is clearly visible. It’s as if I can feel it flowing. It is a perfect example of the happiness God wants us all to experience. Sara’s faith and patience paid off with a love that is priceless.
    I wish them the best!
