"You loved the best way: with a touch of madness and reckless abandon." -Ariana
Josh and I lived in Jersey for three years before we recently moved back to Houston... in our final weeks in Jersey, Brytt and Sean became some of our best (and most helpful) friends. They came over to our place countless times to help us pack and offer their love and support. We had all known each other through my church for about a year and half but it took us till the last few weeks of us living there to become close friends!
Since tomorrow is the official first day of the fall season, I figured today would be the last appropriate time to blog about my trip to Charleston during this past summer! Even though it was technically a work trip (one day I'll get around to blogging Jo's wedding...!) my husband and I took a few extra days to make a little vacay out of it.
I can't believe it has been ten whole years since I met this beautiful human being. As teenagers dancing away our summer at Broadway Dance Center, neither of us had any clue what adventures lie in store for us... roommates, late night tapping, filming a webseries, random photoshoots, many tap classes, she was a bridesmaid at my wedding and I photographed her's. I love Johanna so much and am grateful for her friendship and collaboration in my life, including our most recent shoot!

Allison is one of the most beautiful people I know. Growing up I always wanted to be just like her and her older sister, Laura. They were the epitome of elegance, not to mention they had the best personality; funny, witty, clever! As we progressed into adulthood they remained role models to me, but also became my friends. Its crazy to think back to our young ballerina days... Laura and I are now married and soon enough Allison will be joining the club. Soon after she and Brian got engaged last year she approached me and said "I don't have any wedding plans made yet but I know I want YOU to do our engagement portraits!"
Loves: my husband, golden age movie musicals, red lipstick, fall leaves, rainy mornings, dressing up, jazz music, yellow tulips, tap dancing, and taking your photos (yes YOU!)
