Brandi and Ray are getting married this fall, and along with committing to the love of her life, Brandi is also going to become a part of this wonderful family including Ray’s three amazing kids, Emily, Molly, and Luke.  I can’t tell you how much fun it was to watch this group of five.  The three kids were this ever-moving creative force.  I didn’t have to do anything but watch, and then say, “yep, keep doing that”, and it was wonderful and spontaneous and fun.  I am so thankful we found each other.  Here are some personal favorites.

I was connected with this wonderful family by my friend, the beautiful and wonderful photographer Lindsay Penney.  She had been the Cary’s official family photographer in Wichita, but when Lindsay moved to Colorado last year, she hooked us up.  Lucky Me!  They are fantastic.  Any parent of three children has my instant respect.  But then after spending two hours with these kids I felt like I needed to sit down and ask them questions about parenting and take notes.  They were some of the most polite, well behaved, loving kids I have ever photographed.  I had so much fun.  Thank you Lindsay and Cary family!  Here are some favorites…

Kristin and Peter hosted Mark and I for two days in the place they call home together, Brooklyn, NY.  It was a wonderful adventure and we fell in love with Brooklyn and with Kristin and Peter.

The two originally met in New Orleans, another city that they deeply love.  Kristin was in school at Tulane, Peter had recently graduated, and a friend introduced them one night at the art gallery Kristin was working at.  They were residents of New Orleans when Katrina happened.   Somewhere in there, Kristin studied in Paris and Peter visited her for an epic trip together.  To me, the places these two have lived in and visited are a big part of their story.      Kristin and Peter seem to hold “places” in high regard.  They don’t just reside in a city, they seek it out, and collect the parts of it that they love and it becomes part of who they are as individuals and as a couple.  They shine in hospitality, it is one of their favorite things to create a good time for guests.  Clearly their wedding will be a gift to all of their guests, and I’m so excited to be a part of it too.

So here is a look at some favorite photos that I took of Kristin and Peter on a day in Brooklyn.

A few weeks ago I got to meet this guy, little Crew Kellenberger.  Crew is lucky enough to have Erica and Travis for parents.  They are beautiful and funny and I can see how loved Crew is going to be in the way they each hold him and look at him.  Crew is also blessed to be surrounded by an extended family that is just crazy about him.  I got to meet Erica’s mom and one of her sisters that day, and all four adults in the house were at his beck and call.  But you can see why, look how precious he is…
