There’s no better couple to kick off my fall engagement sessions than these two! Hailey and Jake have the coveted 10/10/20 wedding date next year and I’m so excited to be their photographer and to see Chula Vista in all of it’s autumn glory, it will be the perfect venue for their big day.

These two are adorable together and Hailey absolutely killed it with all of her outfits, I want to have her whole wardrobe for myself! Being a photographer in October can be tricky, it’s one of the most beautiful times of the year, but it’s also the hardest time for photographers. The end of our season is always the busiest, so having amazing clients like these two that are just kind, good-hearted people make it all worth it!

In these busy times of the year it is easy for us to think about the to-do list, but one thing that I have been trying to focus on is waking up each morning with gratitude, and how that one single thought can evoke such a change in our attitude. It brings me so much joy to be able to document people’s love for a living! But like any balance in life, it’s a constant cycle of trying to be a good photographer, wife, mom, friend, daughter, etc. So, anyone who is reading this that knows a photographer or anyone that is in a season of overwhelm, showing a little extra kindness truly goes such a long way! Happy fall friends!
