Keri is a dear friend of mine.
She's the first person I met when I moved to Fort Worth when I was 18.
She was a roommate, in my bridal party, a confidant, a blesser, a bs-caller-outter, a shoulder to cry on, and a whole lot more.
She introduced me to her mother, a visionary in the birth community who shaped me as a woman and was with me when I birthed two of my daughters. Her passing last year was a loss I was not prepared for. When Keri confided in me that she was pregnant, I looked at my husband in outright joy followed by immediate and complete heart break - because Ann wouldn't be there.
From afar I've watched this amazing woman grow physically and spiritually in ways I didn't even know were possible. I was over-the-moon excited when we hatched a plan to sneak away this weekend to shoot at a location very near to her, her honeymoon getaway.
Since 2011, Keri has been a muse and encourages me in my creative efforts like few can or do. I'm thankful for her friendship and am FREAKING OUT over the fact that a little baby boy Duckett will soon be joining the world.
Here are some words from Keri
Thank you again, friend, for traveling so far while there's a bowling ball on your bladder to see me and catch up. I love you!
Are you in the Austin area? I'll be shooting there at the end of November and Mid-December.
I will also be in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area the first weekend of December
(to see this precious new babe!) and to photograph more of my favorite DFW people.
