I told my husband before we got engaged that it was either “me or a dog.” I never had a dog growing up, and my friends would describe me as the complete opposite of a dog lover. I’m laughing as I type, thinking of how many dog stories I have– like the time I saw my future sis-in-law’s dog for the first time and gasped while quickly choking out the words, “What is THAT?” Or the time my senior English students bought me dog Dixie cups for Christmas because I may have admitted to them that I couldn’t eat around the furry creatures.

Oh, the irony.

My son’s been asking for a dog for a long time. A few months ago, I had a change of heart. We’ve taken a while to process, think and prepare. I had so much to learn. I mean, I knew NOTHING.

We celebrated Jonah’s nine year birthday this weekend and decided to surprise him with a new puppy.

I’m smitten.

Guess who’s sleeping on my feet right now 🙂

Meet Crosby, our new cockapoo.

If you’ve been following my work for any length of time, you’ll recognize this family. They’re my cousins, and I just love to photograph them! Here’s their authentic life– captured.

Eric and I joke that I only take pictures of the top of his head! Perhaps if he hadn’t chosen such a STUNNING wife my camera would actually be able to focus on something else. Sorry Eric 🙂

Hurricane Issac. How ironic. On the year of a summer drought, the hurricane decided to hit the Midwest on Nathan and Ashlee’s wedding day! I sat down with Ashlee while she was getting her hair done to talk about how we should approach the day. Should we stay inside and hide or should we celebrate the weather knowing that, as one photographer has said, “How beautiful if it rains! Anytime it rains again, you’ll think of your wedding day!” We chose to take the positive approach. And so, with Nathan and Ashlee’s joyful spirits, unruffled demeanors, and up for anything attitudes WE (Troy & I) sought to tell the story of their beautiful day– rain and all!
