Sneak Peek: Rebecca and Ranson

It's been such a busy month with engagement photos, lifestyle shoots, birthday celebrations and so many other things that went on this month. Anyway, we want to share with you a couple of shots from our most recent engagement photo shoot. These two are so shy and quite nervous about their first session. Although you can't really tell from these photos just how stressed out they were. 
 It's so beautiful in Belfountain Conservatory. Thanks Rebecca for introducing us to our new picnic destination!

By our second session, these two were pros! Streetsville is the definitely the perfect location. 
 We had fun posing them around in this cute church. 
 Love this!

 Found a perfect nook by the Tea Room =)

Thanks Rebecca and Ranson for these fun sessions! We can't wait till your super awesome wedding!

hey, hey, it's my birthday!

I had to work a night shift on the eve of my birthday. Boo!!! Oh well, but who knew...Mr. Pearls was a romantic after all! haha :) Love you, baby! You are the bestest! 
Came home to breakfast, flowers and a gift. I have to give him much credit for effort. I used to complain about how he would always cook the eggs well done when I only wanted them over easy. And of course, today, he didn't disappoint. Can you see the curl of the ribbon on the wrapped gift?? I taught him how to do that. Hahaha! So.... can I open my present now???? Can't wait till dinner!

Happy Birthday to me :)
