The candids. The in-between moments. The “hey, I remember that moment, I’m so happy you caught it on camera!” phrases.

 

 

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good family portrait with everyone smiling into the camera. But those photos only tell part of a story. iPhones, selfies, instagram, snapchat – they’re all part of your story. But the candid moments are what complete a story.

 

 

Your family. Your story. Your memories. Don’t let them die with your old iPhone.

joe + roberta | PALMETTOS ON THE BAYOU, LOUISIANA and dollick family | BARNETT RANCH PRESERVE, CALIFORNIA

“I’m going to marry this guy.” I’ll never forget the day I got that text.

 

It all started 13 years ago in a grocery store on the island of Guam. I dropped a bag of spaghetti on the floor and as I clumsily tried to clean it up, I spilled another bag. Just then, Ro walked around the corner and we’ve been friends since. Or more honestly, she’s been my partner in crime ever since.

 

Over the years we stayed in touch, started a club and printed magazines, [ha! ha! Those were the days!] and of course, we talked about guys and who we thought was perfect and oh-so-cute. But when Roberta crossed paths with Joe, it was different. It was no longer the girlish crush. This was the real deal. It was obvious by the way she smiled when talking about him, the way she couldn’t stop talking about him, and in the way she’d do anything for that guy.

 
The next two years proved to be trying with Joe living on the east coast and Roberta on the west coast. But true love, the kind of love that makes you go a little mad, always finds a way to get through even the toughest of times.

 

Ro, we’ve made some of the best memories over the years, but watching you fall in love was by far my favorite. And Joe, I couldn’t think of a better man to stand next to my best friend. As Roberta said the evening of her wedding, “this is the best day ever. I never want it to end!”

 

To the many adventures you two will share on the road ahead. xoxo

“It was love at first sight. I don’t know if you can say that at eleven years old, but I fell for her the first day we met.”

 

You may remember the Dollick family from their extended family session last year at Mt. Woodson Golf Course in Ramona, California, or maybe you remember them from the post on their family business, Dollick Designs – speaking of which, I cannot express how much I LOVE the incredible handcrafted signs in my office!

 

I absolutely love this adorable family. Not just because they could take the model industry by storm, but for the way they value family and growing in life together. And I seriously can’t get enough of all this blonde hair and blue eyes!

It was 4:30 AM.

 

Something woke me up with a startle. I ran my hand across my face and stretched my legs across the bed. But wait, something was on my face, SOMETHING WITH LOTS OF LEGS.

 

Survival mode kicked in and I was suddenly wide awake. I flung whatever this creature was off my face and jumped up. It landed next to my body and crawled across the bed sheets. It was dark. It was long. It was a big fat roach! Without another second to think, I hit it across the room as if trying to get a home run in baseball.

 

The rest of the night I laid in bed with the light on, making sure every one of my ten toes were inside the blanket. Slowly my thoughts faded away from the roach lying somewhere in my room and I began to think about life and all the unexpected things it had brought my way… well, not before first replaying every action for a snapchat story.

 

As for the roach, it feasted on special roach snacks the following night and is now sleeping peacefully.

 

Oh Guam, these were the days. The good outweighs the bad a million times. I wouldn’t trade those 6 months of craziness for anything. Not for anything. And most of all, I’m grateful for everyone who became my family over there.
