Tenderness means…

Among my friends, it’s no secret that I love children’s books. Then, within that category, it is also no secret that I have favorite authors. Amy Krouse Rosenthal is definitely a part of that set and her Cookies books are delightfully wise.

This past Saturday, my two friends gave me the great honor of taking their engagement photos. When Abby mentioned that she’d like to try and take some pictures with a marquis (they’re getting married at the Conejo Players Theatre next summer), I immediately thought of the Barnes & Noble in Point Loma. It’s a bookstore that used to be a theatre and it still has the Loma Theatre marquis out front. Since we were at the bookstore anyway, we ventured inside.

For now, here’s a teaser of what’s to come… there will be a full post once I make my way through the pictures.

Abby & James - Engagement

See how we’re lifting the fresh cookies
from the tray with care and gentleness?
That’s the same way we treat another’s heart.”

Sugar Cookies: Sweet Little Lessons on Love

Fabulous friends, fabulous books, and a fabulous afternoon. I’m so lucky.

(P.S. Seriously, her books are fabulous… all of them. I’m so glad Abby & James were such willing models to read about cookies during their engagement shoot. I have cross-posted this entry at my brand new photography blog (which is also linked in the sidebar). You’ll want to bookmark the link as I will be blogging the rest of the engagement there.)
