I just wanted to apologize, Internet, for not updating about my mud room when I promised I would. It's coming. Maybe even after this post. Why not make 2 posts in one day? Today I had so much fun photographing the Brown family. They might be my favorite family. In fact, if I had to choose a new family, they would definitely be on my list of choices. They are so much fun, and they are hilarious, and they are pretty much the nicest people you'll ever meet. They were good enough to put up with me marching them all over downtown in the afternoon sun just for a few cute photos. (I have to come up with better vocabulary. You should hear me when I'm behind the camera, all I say is "cute", "beautiful", or "fabulous.")
My favorite thing about the Brown family is how I met each of them differently. Luke and I met in high school, maybe even middle school. He was good friends with my good friend, Steven. (I'm shooting Steven's wedding in a few weeks! I'm so excited!!) Put Steven and Luke together, and you are promised a lot of laughter. Years later I met his sister, Rachel while teaching Sunday school. It took about 3 months for me to realize that they were siblings. Rach and I saw each other every day for 22 days straight this summer. It was so much fun. I met Barb and Jerry during choir practice at church, and I don't know how I met Jesse. (Sorry, Jesse, I still think you're great!)
This is Jesse, Rachel and Luke.
This is the entire family. I love how Rachel is laughing. I'm not sure if you'll believe me, Internet, but I'm pretty funny, you can ask Rachel. Just don't believe anything she says about me talking in my sleep at camp. It's not true.
They also invited Rachel's boyfriend and Jesse's girlfriend to the shoot. Interestingly enough, those two are also siblings.
Dear Browns, Thanks for letting me photograph your family. Let's do it again in 2 years when Luke gets back from Cambodia, or better yet, let's all go to Cambodia and do a photo shoot there. Just give me a date, and I'll get a plane ticket!
