this session was particularly meaningful to me because she asked that i photograph her with her beau james. up until this past year julie has been a single mom. she's now found a very special someone to share her life with and it's a joy to see her so happy. james sure impressed me! he was so good with savannah and so sweet to julie. it's little things like seeing ones you care about find love that brings so much inner joy. i'm truly happy for them both and for their sweet little family. james will soon be deploying to afghanistan. i know that julie will miss him terribly, but she will have these photos to cherish while he's away. enjoy!
all of the images were taken at the springville museum of art in springville, utah.
