Soulful Anje-Ilana

“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful for the way she thought. She was beautiful for that sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful for her ability to make other people smile even when she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down in her soul.” – anonymous

Any time I read a passage or see a quote about inner beauty, my dear friend Anje’s (beautiful) face instantly pops into my head. She has one of the purest hearts I’ve ever come across, and her ability to treat anyone and everyone with the exact same compassion and love has always inspired me.

Anje is not only a talented fellow Photographer; but she’s a graceful Mommy to her beautiful daughter, a lover of music, plants, coffee and animals. Her personality is made up of a perfect balance between wisdom and quirkiness. I’ve always admired her relationship with her fiancé Chris and sweet Mila. With God being the centre of Anje’s focus she never fails to treat them with kindness or respect, and she always strives toward being the best possible example of a Proverbs 31 woman and mother.

I had the absolute pleasure of sneaking in a few pictures of her during my personal maternity portrait session, and I’m unbelievably pleased to be able to share her beauty with all of you.  An, we are so blessed to have you in our lives. Thank you for always lending a helping hand and never failing to make me laugh. You are going to be one stunning bride! X
