Here is one of the winners from the "Spread the Love" contest that I ran a while back! If you would like opportunities like this, please sign up for my newsletter:
The deal was to nominate an angel on earth, tell me why they make the world a better place, and both the angel and the person who nominated the angel got FREE Day in the Life sessions with me. This is documentary style only. Just real life. Messy people, messy house, beautiful life.
So Maggie nominated her friend, Kourtney, who truly does so much for others, and was hands down the winner. Such great ladies, growing the good. Kourtney's story and her session will be coming up soon, so stay tuned. I was thrilled they won, because the Zick family is one of my favs! I have documented their adventures since Maggie and Dave's wedding!!
In case you missed some of the other sessions....
Man, I love these guys. This Day in the Life session was just a casual Sunday Funday at home.
Thank you, Zick Family!
Here's the preview:

Congratulations Caitlin and Matt! What a fun day for ice-skating in the city! It was actually beautiful, warm(er) for Michigan in February, and the sun was out. These two are so cool (not just because they were ice skating! Hee hee). Their warm personalities make you feel like you've been friends for years. I instantly connected with these two. Smiles, jokes, a little insecurity about skating and falling on your arse (Caitlin)... I am so excited for this couple and can't wait for the wedding! They are having their reception at McKay Tower, which is reflected in the buildings in some of these shots. Pretty cool.
(They never fell on their arses, but other people did. They're in the background in some of these... Thought it was funny since it's the Olympics and everyone cringes on the edge of their seats waiting for people to fall. You know you do.)
Caitlin and Matt met at her cousin's wedding. Matt actually crashed it- well, kind of. The best man asked him to go. But Caitlin says he crashed it. They were together for two years when Matt proposed. There was a love note on the bed, and when Caitlin turned around, he was on his knee. He always tries to surprise her, and it never works, so this time he didn't plan anything and just did it. He wanted to propose on the blue bridge and got shot down for lack of originality. Ha!
Well, just look at these two! I am genuinely so, so happy for them. My heart gets bigger knowing people like these guys...
