I adore Lauren + Chad! The way they goof off with one another yet can have sweet, quiet moments as well reminds me of my relationship with Dave. The first time I worked with Lauren and Chad was when I photographed the birth of their daughter. Even then, Lauren and Chad had me in tears with laughter and I just really enjoy spending time with them. Even though we met through photography (Lauren owns Lauren Garrison Photography), I am thankful to now call Lauren one of my friends. 🙂 Lauren asked me a couple of months ago if I would be willing to grab a couple of shots of the whole family for their Christmas card and then photograph a session for just her and Chad even though they were already married and it wouldn’t really be an engagement session. I, of course, agreed because I think that this is one of the most amazing gifts that they will one day be able to give to their children. As we are growing up, we are lucky to even get pictures of our parents in their “parent roles” but we are even more gifted if we get pictures of how they feel about one another and pictures of how they interact with and love one another. I wish more people would do this! Thank you Lauren and Chad for letting me capture a little peek into your relationship! It was an honor!
