Feels Like Home

I'm not quite sure why, but "Feels Like Home" is the song that started running through my head as I was finishing up these images from Bonne and Steve's engagment session. The warmth of the buttery sun, the tall arching grass, the rows of gorgeous houses in the background, and two energetic puppies, all just made me feel like this was home. Home was wherever Bonnie and Steve were together, as a little family wrapped up in love.

We are shooting their wedding in a week but I wanted to share these images because they are all just too pretty to keep to myself. I think the reason the lyrics to "Feels Like Home" started running through my head is because looking at these images just makes me feel cozy. I am so happy that Bonnie and Steve decided to bring their puppies along because we really got to capture the love of their little family. We laughed as the small puppies pulled against their leashes and tried to pounce through the grass that was taller than they were.

Nate and I are definitely dog lovers and want to adopt a puppy so badly but we can't until we move from this condo since there is a restriction on pets. (Isn't that awful?) But I digress, this session just made me feel as warm as the buttery sunlight we caught in this session.

I've babbled enough, I will now leave you with the pictures and the lyrics from "Feels Like Home".

Somethin' in your eyes, makes me wanna lose myself
Makes me wanna lose myself, in your arms
There's somethin' in your voice, makes my heart beat fast
Hope this feeling lasts, the rest of my life

If you knew how lonely my life has been
And how long I've been so alone
And if you knew how I wanted someone to come along
And change my life the way you've done

It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way back where I come from
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way back where I belong
