i got this in an email yesterday. it was perfect for what i was feeling and thinking:

“can you feel the stretch of light

the days ahead

the rush of new”

happy first day of june!!! happy first day of summer!!! i love all the connotations that come with june and summer: longer days, romance, sun-kissed skin, drive-in movies, empty schools, long chats on the patio with a chilled drink, sparklers on the fourth, grilled meals outside while the kids run through the sprinkler, all of it, i love!!! (minus the heat, but that’s a different blog post entirely of it’s own! ;))

i also love a good, flirtatious summer wedding!!! mmmmmm-hmmmmm! so excited for the summer weddings on the books for this year! so looking forward to what’s in store to photograph and witness! so happy to be a part of summer romance at its ultimate!

in honor of how much i love june, and the start of summer, i am offering a “book in june”- newness of june special!!! ;) the special applies to wedding packages and portrait sessions; the event does NOT have to be in june, just the booking. also, a deposit is all you need to book the special! (portrait sessions need to be redeemed a year from booking. weddings can be redeemed up to three years from booking.) all you have to do is book in june to get the special!!! ;)

and in honor of june i wanted to share something from the familial archives.

this is my name sake: june smart. she was my grandmother, and he, is, my grandfather, on my dad’s side. i’m named after her, and my children, in essence, are named after both of them. grandma june and grandpa, named their son, my dad, james, after the man in the photography my grandpa james. we named gunnar, gunnar james, after my dad. and our daughter’s first name, larkin, was theirs, and my, last name!

the june-newness of june special is dedicated to my grandparents who, too, experienced a very loyal, real, and romantic love! june and james larkin were married (not in june; that would have been cool!! ;)) on the 6th of may, 1943. no matter how you spin it or from what generation you hale, “love, is love, is love, is love, is love…”

so looking forward to being a part of your love!! excited to hear from you! cheers and much love, kj

(ps this special does not apply to already booked packages or sessions. it also doesn’t apply to any future promotion.)
