The Susie Family . Chicago, IL . Life

A little story for the day… years ago, I was a college student and spent a semester as part of a program where several schools came together for learning and living in the big city. I lived with two girls, and who knows how many cockroaches, in one very tiny apartment. Just down the hall and a couple floors away, lived three boys. The six of us explored the streets together making many memories along the way. Now we are grown up and have families of our own and recently I got to capture Chad, his wife Jana and their three adorable kiddos:)

Here are some of my faves…

Charisse + Harry . San Antonio, TX . Wedding

This may go down as my favorite wedding of the year, and it isn’t just because the bride is an amazing friend, or the fact that this couple oozes respect and love for one another, or even the yummy cupcakes and desserts. I think it had to do with the fact that I got to witness my son asking a girl to dance for the first time:)You can see this below, but first, back to Charisse + Harry…

Charisse and I go back, all the way to Florida where we met and then both landed here in San Antonio. She has two daughters, whom my boys and I adore, and on this day, joined her sweet family with Harry’s wonderful family of 5. The heart Harry and Charisse have for one another, along with the amount of fun and laughter they share, only made for one fantastic celebration! Congratulations you two! I wish you only the best of what’s to come!!

Troi Lynn + Family . San Antonio, TX . Life

I have had the pleasure of photographing Troi Lynn and her family on more than one occasion and each time I jump at the opportunity! This sweet girl is joyful, inquisitive, lovable, determined and she takes it all in. She is a joy to capture and her adorableness is a bonus. I love capturing her and her growing curls:)Here is Troi Lynn and her family in some of my faves from the session…

Brittany + Sean . Spring Branch, TX . Wedding

Brittany and Sean’s wedding decor was like nothing I’ve seen before. I loved everything about it!! They share a love for literature and chose to center their wedding around books. Their invitations arrived in a book; the guests received welcome gifts displayed in a book; the rehearsal/welcome party featured a 7ft tall book and famous literary characters… And then there’s the wedding… books, more books, paper flowers, library cards, stunning floral, vintage typewriters, a poet writing on the spot, and more books!! You just have to see for yourself (scroll down). I loved how personalized this wedding was to Brittany and Sean and to their relationship. Congratulations to you two! It was such a pleasure to capture your big day!!
