Kayla & James // Port Warwick, Newport News Anniversary Session

Oh my goodness, where do I even begin? First of all, I am absolutely LOVING anniversary sessions! They are such an amazing way to show how far you've come in your marriage - that you still mean the vows you made however many years ago it was, and that your love is still growing every day. I love that my anniversary couples will have pictures to hang in their house that show them in their everyday life. There is something so beautiful about seeing a couple choosing to stay together every day, and choosing to be happy on a daily basis.

Nathan and I met up with Kayla and James one summer evening a few weeks ago for a session in a place that is near and dear to their hearts. Their first home together was in Port Warwick, which made for a perfect setting. The streets, the cars, the trees...it all shows a picture of where and how their marriage and life together first began.

For the beginning of the session, we had their beautiful huskies join us, and then we took time to celebrate the love just between Kayla and James, only a few short weeks after their two year anniversary.

Kayla and James, thank you so much for everything. I love you two both, and together you are an amazing, loving, fun couple to be around! I'm so grateful to have a glimpse on who you are right now as a married couple, and I can only imagine what the future will bring.
