I still remember the first time I met Brittan and Emily.

Weeks before, I’d visited Austin for a workshop and met the great Geoff Duncan.  Through conversation, Geoff mentioned that I should look up a guy named “Brittan” and that’d I love his work.  Sounded like a cool name, I thought.  Needless to say, I never googled Brittan… not sure why.

Fast forward – I show up at this wedding in the middle of nowhere, to start with details, scouting, etc.  Then I see these guys.  Equally beautiful/POWER COUPLE.  Introduce myself.  “Brittan, nice to meet you” he says.  Then it all hits me.  What are the chances?  Then I go on a weirdo rant on how we must be meant to be friends because of my recent conversation about him.  He wasn’t amused… but thankfully, Emily was.

You see, Emily is a magical woman.  She has the ability to talk to anyone she meets with pure and glorious happiness.  It’s a sight to see.  As you can down below – the only woman who has smiled and laughed during child birth.

Eventually, I won Brittan over and we became best buds.  Then I asked if I could shoot the birth of Kelby.  Boom, here we are now.

My thoughts after witnessing Kelby’s birth?  Mind blowing.  Life changing.  Top 3 things I’ve seen in my life.  Beautiful.  Love triangle.

Love all three of you 🙂
