They were all giggles as we walked the beautiful grounds at the University of Tampa – a Private, Florida University.

 

Jackie and Sarah have been best friends since they were little girls. When the military moved Sarah’s family to Guam – where I met her in 2011 – they proved that nothing, not even thousands of miles, could break the bond of friendship.

the point on emerald isle | WAKEFIELD FAMILY and The Sentence That Took Two Hours To Write

 

The winding road to Mt. Woodson Golf Course in Ramona, California felt like driving through a salted pretzel or a salted carmel cake pop. The rolling hills were covered in white rocks, so naturally my imagination went wild as I drove around curves and up the mountain.

 

When my family moved to San Diego back in 2004, the Dollicks were one of the first families we met. At that time, there was just the parents and six kids. Within the past 10 years three of them have gotten married and half of the family has moved up to Alaska – remember Andrew + Jamie’s Alaska engagement session? They live in one of the most amazing destinations anyone could live!

 

While in San Diego the beginning of July, I had the absolute privilege of photographing the entire Dollick family at Mt. Woodson Golf Course. Once again, I was reminded just how much fun it is to grow up with lots of siblings. The laughter, having so many people in every direction, and the love that only family can provide.

 

Check out this stunning family full of gorgeous blonde locks.

The sun cast a magical spell over Balboa Park, almost as magical as the way Isaac could make Laurel giggle that girlish giggle.

 

It’s 1:38am, which makes it Saturday morning I suppose. The fade of lipstick has stained my lips pink, most likely accompanied by the smear of chocolate. I found chocolate chip cookie dough hidden in the freezer and, well, the rest is history…

 

Speaking of love, I have one thing to say to all you ladies: If he can make you giggle that girlish giggle, never let him go.

 

And for all you men: more than purchased gifts, chocolates, or fine jewels – never stop finding ways to make your lady laugh. I promise you, that is a priceless gift.

KELLI + ETHAN ENGAGED | swansboro, north carolina and The one thing that will never change

Without warning, a squeal of delight bolted from my lips as we turned the corner from Prospect street opening the view to Scripps Park in La Jolla.

 

Rewind back to 2003.  Six of us girls dressed up for tea gathered in the tiny dining room of a Guam house. Between the strawberry short cake and sips of tea – pinky finger pointed out, no doubt.

 

we giggled with the excitement at how grownup we felt.

 

A year later, the Navy moved our families in separate directions. Two of our families flew off to San Diego while the other moved on to Tampa, Florida. The years passed and communication came and went.

 

10 years later,

 

a couple of us found ourselves in San Diego again! This time, there was no tea or pointed pinky fingers. We talked about old times, compared guy crushes, giggled like little girls, cried like teens, and faced reality that, yes, we actually are old now.

 

But some things will never change, no matter where life takes us or the hardships we go through. Deep down inside, we’re still the same girls passionately pursuing big dreams.
