A Summer Engagement Session at Maple Hill Gardens in Hollis, New Hampshire

Wooooooo! I am thrilled to be sharing these with you because it seems like it took a great journey to get here! And by that, I mean we rescheduled session number one because a thunderstorm and rain had moved in right as we were on our way to the session (womp womp.)

And then a heat waved moved in so instead of having us all in over 90* weather, we agreed it would be better to push it back two days when it was MUCH more ideal weatherwise!! And friends, this was worth the wait!!

Mike and Lauren are so incredibly wonderful and their session turned out SO glowy and bright and I was living for it!!! That dress she wore was stunning and everything flowed so smoothly. Though we did have some yoga goers in the field next to us and I probably was super disruptive with my loud excited voice that comes out when the magic starts coming (which for the record happened pretty much instantly with these two!) but such is life!  😜

I’m in love with the story of how they started dating. They both met at the same school they were employed at and picturing them walking down the hallways around one another just sets up a Nicholas Sparks story in my mind!!! These two are an absolutely pure match and I cannot wait to see them again for their wedding day celebrations!!!

Lauren and Mike — thank you again for being so flexible and wonderful throughout getting to this session!! I hope you enjoy these just as much as I do, and I can’t wait to send the full gallery soon!!
