“Jon and I went to high school together and unknown to each of us, for months our friends had been telling us we’d be perfect for each other. I thought they were crazy since we hardly even spoke! Well, little did I know that in 10 years we’d be crazy in love and expecting our first child. I am lucky enough to say I married my best friends, living in a cute little country home that we recently purchased and remodeled, on our own piece of beautiful land like we had always dreamed. We share our little home with 2 crazy dogs and a cat, and will soon be meeting our sweet baby girl. None of this came without hard work, compromise, sacrifice, and sleepless nights, but when I end my day sitting on a rocking chair, admiring our beautiful view from our front porch and reflecting on our life, all the struggles are worth it. Waking up next to my husband, Jon, every day in our little farm house feels like a dream. We are so blessed and excited to grow our family together.”
This session was particularly special to me, because Sam (the pretty mama) is my cousin, and ironically 10 years ago I photographed the high school boys basketball team, and one day after volleyball practice (I was coaching Sam at the time), I told her I found someone for her to date and I really want to photograph their wedding someday!! That, someone, was Jon…her future husband.
