the christy clan

One of my favorite clients, the Christy's, hired me again to join them for a group sister/family picture for a gift for Mom/Grandma! What a group we had out at the park today.
What a fabulous morning we had. Beautiful weather, great people ... what more could you ask for. I can't wait to hear what Grandma thinks. I'm sure she will be pumped. She will have over 200 picture to choose from, so I'm sure she will find a few to frame!
Thanks again for letting me have another opportunity to hang with your family and get to know the kids. After the kids grow just a bit more we can add the dogs!!!
All the best to you, Em

justin & nicole breyhan

I love Justin and Nicole. They followed their dream of having a destination wedding and got married this March in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. They had 40 people join them on the beach for their wedding ceremony and awesome vacation.
Last weekend they had a second celebration of their marriage here in point at the new Holiday Inn and Convention center. What a celebration it was. You could clearly see that everyone was having a great time. One of the best Father of the Bride speeches I have heard in a long time. He had everyone in stitches!
No drama at this celebration ... just food, an awesome cake (by Nancy's Custom Wedding Cakes 715.344.7293), lots of drink, great music by "The Spicy Tie Band" (, and loads of dancing.
Congrats on a fabulous wedding celebration!
All the best to you both,

granger's hawaiian vacation

This is how I know I have one of the best jobs around. I was hired to join Bryan, Dana, Ashley (3 years old), Wesley (2 years old), and Zach (3 months) on their family vacation on Oahu. What an amazing 2 days with such a wonderful family. I don't know how they make it work, but they have this parent thing down. Moving in and out of the days like it's totally normal to have 3 kids under the age of 3 on a vacation! For the first time ever, they made parenting seem pretty rad to me! I'm in awe of Bryan and Dana and how great they are with their kids. You guys have amazing gifts. Thank you for teaching your children (and me) how to use those gifts of love, patience, and generosity properly.
I took over 1000 pictures, so it was hard to just pick a couple for this entry. Thank you for letting me join you on your vacation and so generously letting me be a part of your family for a short while. I can't wait to see the crew next time a bit more grown and with a few more words under their belts. You guys were truly a joy to work with.
Mahalo, Em
