thank you 2014

  Wednesday, 12.31.14


it's 6:20pm,
& as i sit here i am filled with a heart beaming with such GREAT thanks that it almost feels impossible to put it into words.

yet,,, i know i need to write.
i haven't written any personal posts since September 18th, which was my due date,
only because i have been entirely & utterly enthralled with our son.

i seriously cannot get enough of him!!! #slightlyobsessed
he requires an entire post all of his own... to come soon!

however, this doesn't seem to quiet the voice in my head that keeps telling me
to WRITE.
& to BE STILL.
which seem to contradict themselves but somehow i totally get it.

i need to write. i need to share. there is so much i want to tell you!
becoming a mother has changed me in the most beautiful & humbling of ways.

i thought i was an open person before,
but now i am open like a colorful book,
whose pages are still being illustrated & story continues to be told.
my son ignited this in me.

...and i want my story to continue to be told, to be shared,
because i am constantly reminded that we are all in this together.
the more truthful about who we are, the more we grow from each other
& know that we aren't in this big life alone.

this year has been FULL in so many unexpected, beautiful ways for which i am so very thankful.
God continues to remind me to trust in HIm, to lean on Him, & to have Faith in Him.
i thank God for all He continues to bless us with, big & small,
and for the immense amount of love & gratitude he continues to place upon my heart.
...and i can never, ever, fully thank him in 'words' for the tremendous Blessing he has given us with our son, along with my family.
there are no words to encompass HOW MUCH they mean to me & HOW MUCH i love them so. ...somehow, i know He knows.

no matter what 2014 brought to you & what 2015 brings ahead,
never lose sight of HOPE.
be GRATEFUL for every little thing.
& LOVE with all your might.


the rest will fall into place.
wishing you & yours a MOST...

with love & gratitude, always,

ksen

nicole & steve

  Monday, 12.29.14


i've been lucky to know Nicole for quite some time, as her sister, Angela, is not only part of KSP, but also one of my best friends. when i first found out that Steve had proposed to her, i was beyond happy for them! needless to say, when they asked me to photograph their wedding, i was incredibly honored.

Nicole & Steve have a very special connection; they literally light up when they are around each other. as you will see in the images below, it is hard not to smile when you see them together. their wedding was gorgeous beyond words (an understatement ) & put together with a tremendous amount of LOVE & attention to detail.

their special day also included the talented croonings of Ben Sharkey, hair up-do's by the awesome Katie Terranova, make-up artistry by the wonderful Jamie Clemons & Nicole's make-up by her sister, the one & only, Angela Mikula!

below are some of my favorites from their wedding day, however be sure to check out the slideshow at the end of the post for even more photographs!

on another note, we welcomed our first child just 3 days before their wedding date, so i wasn't able to physically shoot it. with that said, i would like to extend a HUGE thank you to my friends & talented photographers, E'Lisa Campbell and Heather Savas for the collaboration in capturing this day so that i would be able to edit it & share their story, while feeling as if i was right there alongside them. it has been such a special process, for which i am so grateful for!

Nicole & Steve,,, where do i even begin? no really! thank you for trusting this process & for your patience. your love is magical & your wedding day was nothing short of a beautiful love story. may you both continue to walk together in this new journey, hand in hand, with the same laughter, love & embrace that shined through in every single moment from your special day. with great love & gratitude, always, ksen
