Tyler and Madalynn // Mini Session // Santa Ynez, CA

Ahh, youth. This mini session brought me back. Way back. Remember being young and in love in the springtime? Newly tanned skin, short shorts, the smell of freshly cut grass in the air. Everything was so simple. Emotions were so intense. These two beautiful people, I'm happy to say, are nothing like I was at 18. They are so level-headed and sure-footed, it's hard to believe they are so young. Soon, they will be faced with a difficult goodbye. The kind of goodbye that puts you on different continents for a year or more with limited communication. They are handling it remarkably well. Our mini session together was intended to freeze this moment in time. To capture the affection, the silliness, the laughter and the details so that when they are missing one another, they can look at these photos and feel it all again.

They certainly melt my heart. Hope to see you when you get engaged, Madalynn and Tyler!
