Amanda & Sarah

  • Richmond Portrait Photographer

They can get along and be the best of friends or they can be each others biggest enemy! I know for my sister and I, we went through the “enemy” phase in Middle school.  We couldn’t stand each other. She would scream, I would grab her arm with my nails and say “SHHHH… If you cry to momma we’ll BOTH get in trouble for fighting!”.  We had that type of relationship.

After we left the furry ones at home  and continued the session… I almost called Alex “Charlie” on several occasions.  ha! Alex and Nikki are two of the sweetest, most down to earth people I have had the opportunity to work with.  Walking around with those two and hearing their story and more about their wedding made me so thankful for my job!

The study had sleeping bags, pillows and Vera Bradley duffles piled at high as the light switch and 32 high school girls came for the biggest sleepover I have EVER hosted.  32 girls… in our 1300 sq foot house! YIKES! Talked about cramped.  Luckily these girls are amazing and all love each other so it worked out perfectly. I don’t know how 4 girls slept on one couch but they made it happen!  Michael is the Upper school youth pastor at Gayton Baptist Church (pssst. if you are in the Richmond area and need a church home, check it out!).  The thing about being married to someone in the ministry is that
