Engaged

Michael + Katlynn | Engaged

A Countryside Engagement in Goochland, VA

filed in:

When these two started dating, it was quite entertaining when all of our families were together because, for the first time in years, when someone mentioned “Michael and Katlynn”…. they weren’t talking about US! Michael and Katlynn started dating in high school, and they’ve been together ever since. We’ve known Michael his entire life, and so it was kind of surreal to watch him enter the dating stage and now to be ENGAGED!!! I still remember him as a young little guy playing with toy guns and trucks with my brother in the backyard. Things change so quickly!

In a matter of 10 months both Michael Beasley AND my little brother will be HUSBANDS?! What in the world?! I feel old! I’ll also be living my last year of my 20’s, and I’ll have a 7 month old at Michael and Katlynn’s wedding! Life is changing so much, but I’m so grateful. These are all such wonderful new seasons that we’re all entering into, and I’m so excited to be a part of this new season of Michael and Katlynn’s life. We love them as a couple, and we know that Michael’s family is excited to have a new daughter officially joining the family! And lets be honest… Katlynn has felt like a part of the family for a really long time!

We met to do their engagement session on our land in Goochland, and we had so much fun together. Besides getting caught in a few briars, it was a perfect shoot. Thankfully the early winter sunlight stayed with us and I just love how these turned out!! Enjoy some of my favorites!

Michael and Katlynn, we couldn’t be more excited for you! It’s been so much fun watching you guys start dating, graduate and enter into the real world. You’re an amazing team and we can’t wait for the wedding!!!!

Introducing Everett Hill Alsop His Birth Story

It’s hard to believe I’m writing this… my fourth birth story in four years. I’ve given birth in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Just typing that makes me tired….. and so grateful…. unbelievably grateful.  These last four years have been the best and hardest of my life. We cherish being parents and welcoming a new baby is hands down the most incredible thing we have ever experienced in our 18 years together. I’m so excited to introduce you to our newest member of our family and tell you the story of how he came into this world!
