Kylie and Dan {Engagement Session}

These two people are some of my favorites! I felt so honored when they asked me to take their engagement pictures for them.  Kylie has been one of my closest friends since high school, so shooting their session was so much fun for me!

Here's just a few from the session with Kylie and Dan:

                                       Seriously, they are too precious!

 I wish both of them a wonderful and happy marriage! Kylie, you will be such a beautiful bride.  Love you, sweet friend!!

About Me!

Hello! I’m so glad you decided to make a stop by Midwestern Charm.  I’m just a 20-something Nebraska girl who is soon to graduate and become an Elementary teacher.  I’m excited to share recipes, DIY projects, and my latest fashion obsessions.  I thought it would be fun to have you all get to know me just a bit better by telling 10 facts about me. Well, here we go!

1- I’m entering into my senior year of college for Early Childhood/Elementary Education.  I am SO excited to get into the teaching world and have a classroom of my own.  It’s my dream to teach 1st grade!
2- As I’m growing older, I am realizing more and more how important family is to me.  I love learning about my family’s history.
3- I someday hope to have a photography business (on the side of teaching, of course!) I have just started taking portraits of friends for practice..There’s so much to learn!!!
4- I believe prayer is so powerful and the Lord has a plan for us all.  I’m patient in prayer wondering what he has in store for me.
5- I am a HUGE country music lover.  Seriously, name a song and I bet I can sing it to you.
6- …And speaking of which, I love to sing…and play guitar…and write my own music.  Music has such a way of speaking directly to my heart.  Life would be so sad without music!
7-Okay, so a random one but I hardly ever go past what the expiration date on food says.  It may sound wasteful but if the date has passed I’m tossing it!
8- So... I bleed Husker red…need I say more?
9- I love to decorate.  I don’t have a place of my own yet, but I just re-decorated my room and I am so proud of all my work! (I’ll show pictures in a post soon!)
10- I have recently taken up a love for yoga and let me tell you..I’m not very good yet.  But, I’m determined to get better!

I’m excited to get this blog a’rollin’! Enjoy!
