This is a shoot that’s been YEARS in the making …. Erik and Erin are sweet high school classmates of Nick’s who I’ve gotten to consider as good friends over the years as well. When the two of them moved to Switzerland three years ago, I took an avid interest in following their lives from abroad, oohing and awwing over all their adventures together (I even had Erin guest blog for me when Nick and I took our OWN Euro adventure back in 2010). Last May, they welcome their little girl Priska into the family and Nick and I couldn’t be happier for them. They made it back home for a rare visit this month and after several attempts over the years, Erin and I FINALLY made a shoot happen. SO happy we did! Much more to come of this sweet family (with MAD Euro style…seriously!) but for now, one snap of storytime and Priska’s favorite book (she clapped her hands when the caterpillar became a butterfly….ADORABLE!) Love you guys!
What do you want to know about me? Because I'm pretty much an open book. Speaking of books, my Bio section is where I reveal more about myself—from favorite reads, to my love of cooking, to why my mama calls me her "old soul".
As a kid, I remember loving my birthday parties. My mom baked a cake, often of the Duncan Hines variety, and my cousins came over bearing gifts. That's it. Things were simple. There were no custom-made labels identifying anything served at the kitchen table. No goodie bags sent home with those who came. And the guest list? Family only, maybe a few friends once I reached grade school.
I was both excited but a bit nervous last night when I arrived in downtown Indianapolis for my engagement shoot with Monica and Kevin. I mean, it's been months since I've photographed an e-session. Would I remember how to walk and talk and shoot at the same time? Hahaha....
A look at some of the recent reads I've picked up in the past few weeks, sharing with you my thoughts on plot, characters, and whether it's worth your time to page through them on your own.
