Saint Petersburg, FL Family Photographer: Ryan & Mykenzi's Family-Engagement Session
Lately I've been growing more and more fond of shooting engagement sessions- and this one in particular won my heart! It's not every day that your cousin gets engaged to one of your best friends! When Mykenzi told me that my cousin Ryan proposed, I was so excited to welcome her into the family (even though I already considered her part of it anyway). They promptly booked a full day of wedding coverage with me and received a complimentary engagement session since the booked more than 8 hours. We were wracking our brains trying to pick the perfect spot for their engagement photos, we were at a loss until the day before the shoot when I drove by the old Hardy house in Chiefland, one of the oldest houses in Levy County. It's sitting in the middle of a gorgeous field where the sun sets right behind, giving us a perfect patch of golden light. This rustic setting may not be everyone's first choice, but when I saw it, I knew we had to shoot there. I just told Mykenzi to trust me, and I'm so glad she did!
Ryan and Mykenzi opted to have their little boy, Ethan, included in some of their photos and it was too precious for words! You can clearly see the love in this little family, and I'm so honored to be able to capture these memories for them!
