Samantha + Josiah | Fall Engagement Session at Cider Hill Family Orchard

Categories Photography, My Life, Engagements

This past weekend I had the pleasure of visiting my friend Sammy in Oklahoma for her baby shower! She’s only a few weeks away from giving birth to a little baby boy! But let’s back up…

Sammy and Josiah met me last fall for a morning engagement session at Cider Hill Family Orchard where they let the warmth of the fire pit warm away the chill of early day. They then strolled through the trees, picking pretty red orbs and laughing at each other’s jokes and celebrating their love for one another. We found several charming features throughout the orchard where we stopped to borrow the natural aesthetic. It was like a perfect date for my friend and her fiance’ and as always I was honored to document that day forever.

I'm the daughter to a King, wife to a man who makes me laugh, and mother to two boys who add joy and fullness to my life. I am a dreamer, a philosopher, an artist, and lover of things that stir my soul. I spend most of my days at home with my boys, Miles and Finn. We make messes (and occasionally clean them up), we giggle, we run and hide from dinosaurs and monsters and we read lots of books together. In my "free" time I feed my craving for art with various creative pursuits and indulge in tasty treats, coffee, and the occasional, guilt-laden Red Bull to feed my other addictions.

When it comes to my passions, I have many. God, Love, Family, Travel, Music, Design, Coffee... but somewhere near the top of the list you'll find photography. From the moment I turned my camera lens towards a sunset for the first time, I felt an intense desire to somehow steal away the beauty of that moment and keep it forever. Now I walk around thirsty to soak up the beautiful moments around me, add a spark of something from deep inside my soul, then spill it back out to the world.
