When I got the request for an engagement session in a botanical setting with a greenhouse I was stoked (to put it lightly). Bonus excitement came from knowing this lovely lady from high school days, though I'd never met her adoring and handsome other half.

When I suggested an in-home lifestyle session I could tell there was a little uncertainty. "How could we possibly do a photo shoot in our home?" Sometimes that is the BEST place to do one!
