Romantic Flower Farm Wedding at Pharsalia

July 8, 2020

If you know me, you know I am undeniably drawn to the connection between mother and child. Whether that sweet babe has joined this side of the world yet or not, the bond with its mama is evident. I’d always envisioned a motherhood session filled with simplicity. A simple gown, simple hair, simple makeup, simple […]

When Joey and I first met, we played 20 questions just like the rest of you (if you’re scoffing at this, I know you secretly played this game with your sweetheart, too! No shame here!).
