Hello lovely people! If you remember back to February, for Valentine’s Day we held our annual #SweetSessionGiveaway for one winner to receive a free (!) signature Sweetheart session. A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of working with the “grand prize” winner, Natalie! It was wonderful to work with her and her lovely boyfriend, Justin! Natalie chose a sunset session at Millbrook Marsh in State College, which was absolutely stunning! Many people underestimate the beauty of a winter session, however, Millbrook Marsh is the perfect spot for a winter session, with views of the mountains and beautiful tall trees!
Natalie and Justin grew up in the same hometown, and came across each other after coming out of long term relationships. Their relationship blossomed, and they have been inseparable for the last 2 and a half years! Together they have a french bulldog, named Cooper, and enjoy outdoor activities, including hiking and kayaking. Natalie told me that she and Justin are best friends, which you can tell immediately once you meet them! They are simply the sweetest!
I met up with Natalie and Justin as the sun was beginning to set. This created a warm glow over the Marsh, and cast some beautiful and vibrant colors onto the mountain behind us. None of us had ever been to Millbrook Marsh before, so we were able to explore a fun new place together. We were able to walk down a little footbridge path between some purple colored brambles and overlook a small creek.
Our walk finally took us to our final location, in front of this marvelous tree. Its long branches were just so alluring. It seemed like the perfect ending for this session!
