you know those people, in life, who live up to every word people say about them, like it’s almost too good to be true? “oh, he’s such a sweetheart”…”isn’t she the sweetest?” brooklyn and terry aren’t too good to be true-they’re the real thing. the last time i spent time with brooklyn, she was about 5 (true story) when i used to spend a lot of time with her older sister. she has blossomed into such an extraordinary woman who i believe possesses an old soul (my favorite kind of people) beyond her years. and terry…what a guy. do you know he did some serious damage to his ankle 4 days before our shoot and not only was he on crutches, but he was in terrible pain? oh no, you didn’t know that bc he is SUCH a trooper and put up with my orders while flashing a smile the entire time. there is so much light and love that radiates from this family (terry included) and their closeness should be a lesson taught to all. because, really, without family, what else is there?
terry, brooklyn, i am SO unbelievably excited for your wedding in june. it’s going to be a celebration of life and love and i feel truly honored to be a part of it. oh and terry, please oh please be careful from now until then, k? no crutches on wedding day, s’il vous plaît.
these next few photos were taken on brooklyn’s mom’s back porch. isn’t that area the stuff dreams are made of? it’s the stuff my dreams are made of, anyway.
