After 'I Do'

Hello! My name is Heather and I am so happy you stopped by! This blog is a place where I will share love stories of amazing couples who I had the honor of photographing. It is a place where I can express my passion with images where my words fall short. Photography has changed my life drastically and I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this gift. I wish I could say the same thing about my singing voice, but what can you do?!

Welcome!

My Wild & Crazy Family! {Santa Cruz, Ca}

My Wild & Crazy Family! {Santa Cruz, Ca}

As many of you may know, I come from a very goofy family…a family I wouldn’t trade the world for.  I grew up with 3 brothers, so my goal was to be one of the boys to fit in.  Sometimes that meant asking for a woofle bat and ball for Christmas instead of a doll.  I used to wish for another sister all the time, but now looking back, I realize that being the only girl is quite an amazing gift.  I learned to spit, burp, and most importantly learned the importance of competition for survival in my house.  Sports became my world!  You name it, I played it!  In college the sports competitiveness turned to academics.  I never missed class…yes, I was a school nerd, but I believed that good grades would land a good job someday.  Haha!  That theory was a joke!  Even though I graduated with honors with a degree in Psychology, I had no idea what on earth that was supposed to mean for me.  So I did what every college grad should do…I went traveling for 3 months!  Best time ever!  Who would of thought that I would meet a guy named Matt in Byron Bay, Australia, reconnect with him 3 years later and merry him!  That is why life is so great!  You never know where your life experiences will take you.  Who would have thought that I would end up being a photographer because I had a bad experience with my own wedding photographer?  What a blessing in disguise that turned out to be!  It is amazing how many times unfortunate things happen to us,  yet somehow He finds a way to make good of it all!   I am so thankful for the gift that photography has brought to my life.  I have this new energy and passion that was lost.  It is a gift to be able to photograph my family on these rare occasions when the ENTIRE crew can get together.  It is always a riot when it happens, and I was not about to miss a single moment of craziness this weekend in Santa Cruz.   Happy Birthday Mom!  Can’t wait for the next shindig in Santa Cruz!   Oh and I am kind of obsessed with my 3 mini mes!  The youngest is my clone who I rarely get to see…so the below pics are focused on her cuz I couldn’t get enough!  I am starting to wonder if my 3 nieces will look more like me than my own kids!

2 of my brothers and hubby competing, of course, to see who can jump the highest…I guess we will never know!  I would have to say Matt though, notice how high his feet get off the sand!  I secretly LOVE it when Matt beats my brothers at something…cuz God knows I sure can’t!
