The Cohen Family | Maternity Session, Morikami Gardens, Delray Beach, FL

The Cohen’s welcomed baby #2 into their family last night! Congrats Jen, Matt, and big brother Brett!! I am so excited to share this maternity session.  Jen and I have known each other since high school, and it’s always so much fun to get together and catch up with her and her adorable family. We met at the beautiful Morikami Gardens and walked around taking photos in the crazy HOT July heat. They were all such troopers given the weather conditions, and we were able to capture some sweet moments to document this time before baby Devin made his entrance:)

David & Crystal Wedding | Cape Coral, FL

This super adorable couple was married on a lovely day in Cape Coral, FL. David and Crystal wrote their own vows, and their words brought the perfect mixture of laughter and tears (the happy kind, of course!). It was such an honor to witness and capture their commitment to each other. Thank you both for your kindness and thoughtfulness and for giving us the warmest of welcomes on your special day:)

And another BIG thanks to Jessica for being my travel buddy and second shooter and providing some of the images seen here!
