Zika Family

I’m an only child and all my life I wished I had a sister.  And at 34 years old – God finally gave me one.  God, and Facebook.  Amanda and I met a couple years ago when she hired me to take photos of she and Brett’s new baby Madelyn.  I adored this family from the start.  I later found out that Amanda took photos herself, so when she contacted me on Facebook about another family session, I quickly complimented her photos and told her she should come shoot weddings with us sometime.  And as luck would have it – she was interested!!  As Amanda and I got together to talk work, a funny thing happened and we talked life.  She’s become so important to me and I can’t now imagine my life without her.  We are so blessed to have her talents on wedding days, and her friendship – every day.  If I could request a sister – Amanda would be it.  In addition – if I could request a niece and nephew as well (OK – so I’m greedy!) her kids would be them.  They are the best behaved little ones you’ve ever seen.  Amanda and Brett are such amazing parents and their love shines through in their kids.  After so many weddings with so many terrors – I mean kids – I’m not a huge fan of all little ones, but these kids I’d take in a millisecond.

2009 has brought us many blessings – and the Zika family is at the top of my list.  Enjoy their freezing family session!



Love is precious.
