“I love putting Sienna to bed at night after a bath, we lay there and she says things so genuinely like “It’s just the best being together with you and daddy,” or “Mom, you’re the best.” It completely melts my heart and I always think about how equally lucky we are. How lucky I am to be her mom, and how lucky she is to be so loved by Eugene and me and our entire family. ”
I love being able to watch this little girl grow up each year through our photo shoots! I’m so glad I got to meet up with her and her gorgeous mother and father before taking off on my road trip this year. Scroll below to enjoy some of our highlights from the shoot!
Hello! We have an announcement!
First we have to go find her!
Kissed her one more time, because…these little ‘mom’ents mean the most.
And now…for the announcement!
THERE IS A BABY IN THERE!
I remember the moment vividly when I first got Bridget’s e-mail. I had just stepped into a wifi cafe in Florence, where I was living at the time, to grab a coffee and check in with reality when I saw it. It was titled “Cayman Islands.” I opened it immediately.
When I first met Bridget and Alex they mentioned to me that Alex had gotten the opportunity to work in the Cayman Islands and they were still entertaining the idea of actually making it happen. Alex seemed more like he was ready to go, but I could sense Bridget’s apprehension. I joked to Alex that we would get her on board by the wedding.
Flash back now to the cafe, and her e-mail, and a delicious coffee I wish I was drinking right this minute. Her message was short, but to the point. She needed persuasion. She told me she was struggling with the decision and needed to be convinced. I figured since she was writing this to me, a person who doesn’t think twice before jumping on a plane to an island or another country, her heart was already in it. I finished my coffee, ordered an Aperol Spritz at the bar, and got to writing.
On October 10, just over a week ago today, Alex, Bridget and an entourage of suitcases boarded a plane in NYC and headed to start their new life in Cayman. I hope you two are reading this and preparing to re-live some wedding highlights from a hammock, with tiny umbrellas in your drinks. I could not be more excited for you both. YOU DID IT!
Cheers to you two, your gorgeous wedding, the new life you’ve recently made for yourselves, and an extremely inspiring leap of faith.
“When Kevin and I first got together almost 9 years ago he was gone a lot, so I wouldn’t call our “dating” very ordinary. I would call it unique. In the very beginning it was a lot of Skype, emails and text messages. Of course, when Kevin was home for his 3 week break we would see each other, go out for dinner, watch movies, just hang… but, what I loved most was the element of surprise that Kevin would give me. I would come home from a long day at work, open up my mailbox and there would be a package from Kevin. It would be one of his favorite books that he insisted that I read, a cool scarf from one his exotic destinations of travel, or just a postcard saying, “hi.” I loved these moments, because I knew no matter where he was in the world, he was thinking of me. To this day, he still surprises me and I know life will never be boring, because I have my thoughtful and handsome pilot by my side!”
Brittany and Kevin are two of the sweetest and most thoughtful people you will ever meet. I am so happy I got to capture these moments for them with their pups a few weekends ago and can’t wait to come back to NY to shoot their wedding this April!
