On the adventure trail : Mollie and Calvin are engaged

Calvin arrived at this session on a 4-wheeler, which told me a lot about how much he loves the outdoors; and Mollie was game as well – so canoes, rope swings into the water, and him taking an early spring swim in the lake all seemed like fitting items to have as part of these photographs. I did feel pretty terribly that the rope swing ended up breaking on him, but no harm, no foul:)


We love their hearts for adventure, and cannot wait to watch them marry each other this June. Mollie Calvin Blog001Mollie Calvin Blog002Mollie Calvin Blog003Mollie Calvin Blog004Mollie Calvin Blog005Mollie Calvin Blog006Mollie Calvin Blog007Mollie Calvin Blog008Mollie Calvin Blog009Mollie Calvin Blog010Mollie Calvin Blog011Mollie Calvin Blog012Mollie Calvin Blog013Mollie Calvin Blog014Mollie Calvin Blog015Mollie Calvin Blog016Mollie Calvin Blog017Mollie Calvin Blog018Mollie Calvin Blog019Mollie Calvin Blog020Mollie Calvin Blog021Mollie Calvin Blog022Mollie Calvin Blog023Mollie Calvin Blog024Mollie Calvin Blog025Mollie Calvin Blog026Mollie Calvin Blog027Mollie Calvin Blog028Mollie Calvin Blog029

Rae and Ryan are engaged!

For me, there’s no better way to welcome the onset of springtime (thank God!) than to share some photographs of two people that seem to “exude” the new season out of every fiber of their being. Meet Rae – or Rachel if you want – and meet Ryan. For the entirety of our time together, I smiled ear to ear: I love who these guys are together. Playful, fun, excited about the other person, filled with life and light and joy and goodness.

This is a little glimpse of their engagement photographs here in Kansas City, and the day that I returned home with aching smile muscles. Happy Thursday to everyone!
