Kate once wrote me a note when I was a troubled 7th grader-she made an impression on me back then and it has stuck with me ever since. Matt, Kate and Anders are just plain as real as you get-they don't hide anything from anyone and don't apologize for who they are. I think in the age we live in, we have lost the ability to be completely ourselves and not feel bad about it. Matt has made a mark on my husband (in the best way-no, he didn't beat him) in a way that I will never be able to repay him for. I'm thankful for the friends we have in Matt and Kate-we don't spend nearly enough time together but I know they have our backs. This family is gold.
Time goes so fast and most days, I wish it would slow down for a bit. Last February, my husband and I had the honor of shooting Chris and Carolee's wedding in Hawaii and it was nothing short of amazing. Seeing two people so absolutely in love and crazy about each other is one of my favorite things, and getting to capture it is even better. This year, seeing their beautiful family grow is equally as beautiful as getting to capture their wedding. I'm so grateful that they have allowed us to capture some of the most sacred and beautiful spaces in their lives. I absolutely adore this family and I know Aurora Mae will be one of the most loved little girls the world has ever seen.
Jane contacted me a few months ago to photograph her sweet family when her son was born. Jane and her husband Josh are two of the sweetest parents with the sweetest little baby.
