our love story

My love story isn't the typical love story you might imagine. When I was just 18 years old, working at the local gym, I spotted this tan guy, covered in tattoos, jamming out to his Rage Against Machine playlist as he worked out. We both stared, gazed from across the room of sweaty people, and wondered what it would be like to take the jump. One day he did... he started asking me to hold his keys while he worked out. Yes, there was a key rack on the other side of the wall, but he decided to bring them over to me instead, and boy was I glad he did. Then he started hanging out by my door and chatting for a few minutes, until finally he sent me a message and made me guess who it was by texting me clues! From that moment on we have been madly in love. We spent nights on top of old abandoned buildings watching the stars, we frequented the sweet bed and breakfast in the old town of Gettysburg for our anniversaries, and we planned a life together, just us against the world.

When I met Michael, he was a single dad with a four year old daughter, Katlyn, and the way they loved each other was just one of the many reasons I fell in love with him. This meant our relationship started a little differently than the rest. We had a little girl from the moment we started dating, and she was our first priority. At first, I started off as Katlyn's friend, her Tootsie Pop, which eventually shortened into Tootsie- Toots- Mamma Toots- Mommy, and now that she is 13, it is just Mamma. When she was just six years old, we got married an entire year before our planned wedding date just so that I could adopt her and be the mamma I always hoped I could be for her. One of our favorite ways of showing our love is by leaving sticky notes all over the house, surprise forget my nots and love letters for each of us to find.

In June of 2012, we finally had our wedding, and I had my baby girl right by my side, and on that day I vowed to not only love Michael for the rest of my days, but to love and care for them both, and to always leave them sticky notes to remind them just how much they mean to me.

It hasn't always been easy, in fact there have been moments where we just weren't sure which way was up anymore, but our love and our friendship pulled us through. Our family legacy doesn't have a reputation for everlasting love, but I know our little family of three will break that mold, and I couldn't imagine a life without these two amazingly supportive individuals in it. This is why I love to photograph love. To give brides and families memories they cannot only see but feel with every part of their body, as they look back on their special moments with the people they love the most in this world.
