I love having family close. It is something we rarely experienced over our 12 years in Hawaii.

We have pseudo-family there—you know who you are, and we love you just like the real deal! And (not “but”) it sure has been fun to get to know our blood. . . especially now that they are all grown up and making babies of their own.

These two became parents a few weeks ago. . . remember perfect baby Hadley? It has been a dream to watch Chelsea become a mom. She’s a natural—it’s beautiful to watch. And I’ve been absolutely inspired watching Ben become a daddy. He dotes. It’s breathtaking the way he cares for his girls (yes, Chelsea included), while still kicking butt in medical school. We are so proud of you “Red.”

Here are some images of the two of them—about a year before Hadley Girl came along—doing what they still do best, being blissfully in love.

Enjoy!

Above: Chelsea was only 16 when Richie and I tied the knot, and look at her now!

Can’t wait to make magic together in June/July . . . because this should be YOU!

Off shooting these little lovebird’s big day today! Cannot wait! They are, top to bottom, exceptional. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Friday afternoon, than basking in their head over heels love for each other! Have a great weekend! xo! N

By the time you see this beautiful image from Michael and Jessica’s Scottsdale engagement session, I’ll be on a plane to the Dominican Republic.

Beautiful wedding, sun, sand, beach and . . .  what’s looking like RAIN, here I come.

Every now and then you just need to push pause and recharge. Hand me the remote; I’m totally ready.

xo,

Me

PS- My plan is to keep blogging, posting on Instagram (NatalieNorton-FIND ME!) and etc. We’ll see what the internet connection is like (and just how sunny it turns out to be). No promises.

This lovely couple was such a joy to photograph. We only had about 20 minutes together, and it was plenty of time to capture their BEAUTIFUL love for one another. With a couple this in love, I could have gotten everything wrapped in 5! Nick and Alysha, thank you for the fun afternoon together! xo! Enjoy!

Love the image below, left. LOVE. Alysha, you blow my mind.
