Jolley Family 2015


Generous, kind, beautiful, funny, determined…I could go on and on.  I've loved her from the first time I met my wonderful neighbor and friend.  She is always one of the first people to check on me when she knows I'm sick or going through a struggle….I can't tell you how many dishes I have from her amazing meals!  Nick and I have watched her kids grow up over the years and have loved spending time with them.  A new chapter in their lives has just begun and we had the chance to capture the super amazing bond that they all share.  I LOVE YOU JOLLEY FAMILY!!!  Thank you for making me laugh and really forgiving me for….forgetting my batteries and showing up late and keeping this really professional!

Knudsen Family 2015


As opposed to my husbands 10,000 blood cousins, I have maybe…like 5 in real life…just kidding…it's more like 10.  Meili is ONE of those few special people in my life.  This is her amazing husband and family.  

As newly weds they came to visit me in the hospital after I gave birth to Ryder and somewhere between the pain medication and exhaustion I clearly remember Tyler's very forward thinking idea of combining …a bus, dance poles…although I'm sure he just said poles…and a food truck.   Anyway….to my disappointment he never saw that idea to fruition and INSTEAD combined music and ear plugs…to create the insanely brilliant PLUGFONES.   GO and check this company out!  They are amazing!  Sooooo basically a stripper bus food truck was the brain child to the plugfones…and nowwww you know rest of the story!  I'm so very proud of them!…but seriously ..I AM..how cool is that!?

I LOVED seeing you and your children and getting to spend time with you!  Thank you for asking me to document this amazing time in your lives!  Sometimes…..peoples children are crazy beautiful……I'm not even exaggerating because we are related.  This is defiantly one of those times!  LOVE YOU ALL!
