Family Pictures

Dave and I got family pictures today. I know I don't have children, and it's just the 2 of us, but that is my family and the most important thing in this world to me, so I decided to capture that and get photos done of us.

I found White House Photography through a friend's Facebook page. I emailed Heather (the photographer) and asked her if she would be able to take pictures of Dave and me. We emailed back and forth and were finally able plan on today. After hours of putting together outfits, and picking out colors, and buying 3 different sweaters for Dave and 2 for me, I finally picked out the outfits. I have been so excited I can't even describe so when today came around I was so thrilled. We got ready and met Heather up at Gardner Village at 4:00 this afternoon.

As soon as Heather got out of her car I knew I was going to like her. I had read her blog a little bit and felt like I already knew her, so I was so happy to finally meet her in person. She got out of her car and I went to shake her hand, and she pulled me in for a hug. I instantly felt like I had a new friend. I introduced her to Dave and she gave him a squeeze too. She's just so darling.

The 3 of us started walking and talking and getting to know each other as we came to our first spot. She positioned us, and starting joking around, and soon enough had us both rolling laughing. I can't explain how much fun this photo shoot was. I have never felt more comfortable or had more fun any on a photo shoot. I could literally do this everyday. I realized really quick why Heather does what she does.

I don't have any of the pictures yet, but as soon as I do I will post them on here for all of you to see. I just had to write a little about how amazing Heather was and how glad I was that she was the photographer who took our pictures. She was so full of life, energy, and happiness. We really had such a great time! I can't wait to see the pictures!

If any of you need pictures taken I would highly recommend Heather to anyone. She truly was amazing!!

I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one to do that. I know most people wait for a milestone, but I wanted pictures to celebrate out life, and the fact that I still get to be alive with him. I think the fact that I made it through what I did was a good enough milestone to celebrate! :) Thanks for making me feel better Chrissy. I just love ya tons! I will post them as soon as I can!
