Precious. Seriously precious people… so completely in love and happy… quirky and fun. This was probably the easiest time I’ve ever had on a shoot. I really didn’t have to tell them to do anything. They were just their amazing selves and I got to take pictures of it : )
I’ve known Lauren since the third grade. We used to go to Probe (sp) together. She was always super sweet to me even though I was the strange little girl who sat quietly on the bus while she and her friends played Brain Quest. I miss that game! When I stopped going to Helke, we didn’t see each other anymore. But 3 or 4 years later I started taking tennis lessons and somehow Lauren did too! I found out she lived down the street from me and we started hanging out again. Somehow after tennis lessons we lost touch again, and through the world of facebook… years later… we found each other again. When we found each other we were both engaged and ended up getting married within a couple of months of each other. Lauren is seriously one of the funniest, most original people I know : ) My favorite story with her goes as follows. Our tennis instructor Chrissy was driving us both home one day and she asked us both what street we lived on… and Lauren responded, “Croyden” and I responded “Chelsea”… then Chrissy said, ” Oh okay, now how do you pronounce your name Lauren?” To which Lauren kindly responded, ” Oh! It’s just “Laurrr-ennn”. Chrissy and I lost it… I have never forgotten that story. Love it Lauren : )
Lauren and Rob, already married, wanted to commemorate the new member of their family… the beautiful Julia. Julia was sooo sweet and Lauren and Rob are obviously proud of their little girl and love her so much!
P.S. The spot we took the pictures with Julia was the sledding hill where they got married… so it’s a really special place to them… Their anniversary was yesterday… Happy Anniversary you two!
after I took the first picture of their shoes, Lauren informed me that they had changed shoes and that that too should be documented…she was so right… great shoes : )
I took this shot of Lauren while Rob was putting Julia back in the car and I was trying to get my settings right for the lighting… isn’t she gorgeous?
such cute people : )
