We’ve been lucky enough to have Tiffany and Neal in our lives for nine years now (!). We first shot their engagement session long ago, then the Christening ceremony for their first daughter Natalie. Tiffany, who once bought me a very wonderful bat scarf that I still wear all the time, runs an award-winning events planning company and we worked on several weddings together. And in between all the events and the coffee dates and photo shoots, they’ve always been our friends (for better or for worse – they agreed to have cocktails with us the other night and Neal unfortunately ordered a cocktail that I announced smelled literally like garbage that needed to be taken out… and then no one could “unsmell” it… and his cocktail was ruined. Sorry, Neal). It’s an honor to be asked to photograph the Christening of their second daughter Marion (who is like a mini Natalie at this age!), complete with Reverend Barbara Lodge and their family members. So happy to have this family as our friends and a huge congratulations on the birth and Christening of Baby Marion.
Hello, 2016! We’re happy you’re here joining us in another year of photos. :) This year started off with wonderful, familiar faces to us. We photographed Tiffany and Neal’s engagement session way back in 2011. Since then, Tiffany and I have kept in touch over the years as she’s started her own wedding planning business. Then they had a baby! And then we happened to run into them at the Pixies/Robert Plant show! And they told us that they wanted family photos with their little girl and we happily obliged. We took some photos of just the three of them before their families would be joining them at their house for a Christening ceremony with the ever-wonderful Rev. Barbara Lodge. :) Noodle the Cat and Etta the Dog were also present, as well as some furniture that I may or may not have petted to absorb the good design vibes (Tiffany used to work for Herman Miller). And if I have the opportunity to sit a baby in a genuine Eames Lounge Chair, well, I’m gonna do it.
