For Jamie... Your Sneak Peek | Hampton Family Photography

Now up... Jamie. Or as we like to call him, Bazz.

Bazz was in the same company with my hubby at the Citadel, forever-and-a-day ago. I'm racking my brain here to remember the first time we met and I can't remember if he was among the group of guys who used to hang out at mine and Sarah's apartment our Junior year... or if it was that summer that we officially first met Bazz...

In any case, Jamie has been a great friend... when we bought our first house he bought and helped DJ install our privacy fence.... and even when we were in Japan, we would get regular phone calls from him. He is an amazing cook, a very bad dancer, a newly minted Wii addict, a very bad influence on small children (especially in the use of proper language department), and an all around fantastic source of entertainment. If you ever meet our Bazz, please ask him to do his Borat impression. You. Will. NOT. BE. Sorry. Especially after two bottles of wine... that helps too. :)

So... as not to prolong this any further... because I can hear Jamie yelling at me, "WTH, skip over all this mushy-girly-froo-froo sh** and just show me the damn pictures peanut!"

Here ya go...

Love you Bazz.

Until next time,

For Sarah... Your Sneak Peek | Hampton Roads Family Photography

Sarah and I have been friends since the first day of my freshman year in college. About 300 years ago. Okay. I'm not that old. But sometimes it feels like we've been friends forever.

Sarah had met another of our roommates, Bria (who you'll meet later), at freshman orientation earlier in the summer... and on the first day she walked around our entire dorm looking for Bria's name on the door. I was so nervous that day not knowing anyone... and Sarah just walked right in, plopped down on our couch and started chatting with me kind-of like we'd been friends for years.

We've been friends ever since... she and I roomed together in the dorms our sophomore year when everyone else got apartments... we lived together our Junior Year in an apartment 15 minutes from campus. I don't know a person who can make me laugh so hard or who can do a better impression of a schizonphrenic in the college cafeteria... :)

Right after we moved to Okinawa 5 years ago, Sarah found out she was pregnant... until our beach week, I had never met her sweet little girl. She is so sweet Sarah and so funny... :)

Here are a few of your pics:

Love you girl.

Until next time,

For Brandi... Your Sneak Peek | Hampton Roads Family Photography

I had the distinct pleasure of photographing my friends and their families while we were on vacation.

Slowly but surely I'm getting to these sessions.

First up, Brandi...

I could write pages about each of my friends and how much they mean to me... and all the amazing things they've accomplished. I will not do that here. Suffice it to say, Brandi is an amazing woman and mother of two absolutely wonderful little girls. She possesses it all, intelligence, humor, looks, and a great groundedness that attracts us all to her. Now whether or not 'groundedness' is a word, I'm not sure, but I'm using it because it makes sense to me.

Here ya go B...

She mentioned that she needed a headshot for some of her business stuff...

Isn't she gorgeous?

Your gallery should be up soon lady.

Miss you!

Until next time,

Congrats Little Bro-in-law... :)

This is late coming... But I didn't want to NOT post anything, so better late than never!

While we were on vacation, DJ's little brother got ENGAGED!! We are absolutely delighted and can't wait for their big day. The lucky lady, Mary, is an ER Nurse and is everything that is perfect for Ryan... adorable, sweet, SMART, good, and funny!

Here are a few pictures of the couple!

I took this one last summer... it's about a year old.

This one is more recent...

This was taken by their good friend and photographer, Sara Parker. I love this picture, so I emailed her the other day to ask if I could borrow it... I think it was taken this past winter.

On a funny side note. Trey is MADLY IN LOVE with Mary. He's always holding her hand, giving her hugs, he blushes when she talks to him, loses his train of thought... and even tries to "fight" Ryan for her. It's really cute.

And I fully plan on exploiting this fact at his wedding in 20 years or so.

"Remember when YOU were in LOVE with your AUNT?!"

Anyway, Ryan and Mary... congratulations! Have FUN planning this wedding and we love you guys!

Until next time,

~ K
