My husband and I have been close friends with Trey and Cristina since freshmen year of college. So many memories; being snowed in, Mexican food, board games, Netflix marathons, New Years Eves, and lots of dancing. Drew and I literally jumped for joy when they got engaged and literally did a dance when they asked us both to be in their wedding. They are the most humble servants who have dedicated their lives to serving God and serving others. The strength of their relationship is awe-inspiring. They not only survived but thrived during 4 years of long distance relationship while they were both in medical school! Now, they're finally together forever pursing incredible futures at the Mayo Clinic.
It was only appropriate that Drew accompanied me for the first time on a shoot. We ventured to the JC Raulston Arboretum right by their Alma Mater. He was the perfect assistant! Cristina is such a natural and radiant beauty. She just glowed in her red dress! They made this easy because their pure naturally love overflowed!
The story behind the white coat vs. suit photos: Trey attended the Mayo Clinic for medical school where they wear suits to treat patients while Cristina went to UNC where they wear white coats. Haha so they had to have a rival photo!
Go With The Flow
There are a million priceless lessons I've learned from this wise family. One of which is: go with the flow and we'll make it work.
I showed up to Hank Anderson Community Park and tried to capture the adventurous spirit of Kai and the unconditional love his parents have for him. Trying to pose a toddler, to me, is ironic. They're everywhere! Picking up leaves, splashing in water, running in all directions. But isn't that the best?! I'm so blessed Landon and Jana allow me the freedom to capture those candid, pure, story filled moments.
If these three beautiful humans seem familiar it's because I took photos of them back in 2013! Look how much he's grown! (HERE's their other session at the NC Botanical Gardens).
Love y'all ;)
