Mark + Barb {Just 'Cause}

I couldn't think of a better way to go into the weekend than with this shoot I did with Mark + Barb!!  You may remember their daughter, Leah (engagement session) who also happened to be my best roommate ever!!  Well, when I introduced the Just 'Cause Sessions, she and her sister decided to buy this 30 min. session for Barb's birthday!  

To say that I LOVE Mark and Barb would be an understatement...I mean, really.  They are truly one of the neatest couples I have ever known.  I've always felt a connection to Barb, even from a distance, because she came from a family where she was the youngest of three girls.  I secretly hoped I'd grow up to be like her in some way.  She has such a kind and comfortable way about her...when I'm around her, I find myself wishing we could talk "life" over a cup of coffee.  And Mark...if I could think of descriptor for him, it would be "light".  There's a brightness and positive atmosphere surrounding him...he makes people feel like they've got someone in their corner, cheering them on, in Mark.  I love that so much.


I just thought they both looked so great...and I was loving Barb's little sweater and blouse.  I hear she had her girls help style her outfit. :)
They've been married for a while and have raised children and now have grandchildren...and there's still a freshness about their love and friendship.

I love this one...Barb, you're so cute!
Mark...I really love this one of you.
How can you not just love them?


Mark + Barb...
Thank you so much for letting me spend some time taking these pictures and for trusting me with your shoot! I know having your picture taken isn't the most comfortable thing for either of you...but you were amazing!! :)  
You've been an example to me far longer than I'm sure you'd guess, and I am so thankful for you both and your family.  All my love.
