Brookside Garden Engagement – Joe & Bella

Well, I think it’s safe to say that the year 2020 has not been what anyone expected.  It’s led to many a disappointment but also some hidden joy.

This session had been postponed many-a-times during this crazy season.  I think though, somehow the wait made it that much sweeter!

Joe & Bella and I got to explore the beautiful Brookside Gardens for their engagement session and it was truly a delight.  It was a warm summer’s evening — quintessential to June.  The roses were blooming with incredible flourish and filling the garden with the sweetest aroma.  Despite dodging tourists in masks, these two made it seem like it was just the two of them, walking around for a date like they had many times before.

… it made for the sweetest session if you ask me.

Their wedding day might have been postponed, but Joe & Bella’s joy couldn’t be!

Enjoy a few of my favorites from their Brookside Gardens engagement session.

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

I'M LAUREN
