THE JOURNAL

Marianne & Ryan

The week before we met up for this session, the weather was calling for storms. But magically the day before, the forecast switched to sunny skies. And we got plenty of sunny skies, but we also got unbelievable HEAT! These two were so awesome to withstand the heat wave for some gorgeous photos! I met Marianne and Ryan at the studio collective back in May and I enjoyed working with them again on an upcoming project and getting to know more about them! Marianne runs The M.A. times blog which you should go check out right now! Ryan does most of the photography for her site too! They are both so sweet, but I think what struck me the most is just how comfortable they are together. You guys, I can’t take credit for the posing in the photos below…because they did it all on their own. Other than finding a spot, they pretty much just jumped right in and started nuzzling right away! When they were sitting, I told them they were such naturals and they said “we cuddle like this all the time!” Heart melting! These two are gorgeous so be prepared for a lot of photo overload!
