Photojournalism

This week's photo challenge is so perfect.  Well, at least my entry is so fitting.  Let me explain.  I have this friend, Carissa who has been living at our house for the last  7 months.  Carissa is the sister to an air force friend and has been dating one of John's best friends, Karl (Notch).  They got engaged since she's been living here with us.  It's been such a blessing to have her here for so many reasons.  She has been an amazing friend and someone that I can always talk to.  In fact, when she first moved in I was almost exhausted at having her here because every conversation we'd have was really deep and it took it out of me after a few days of our gab-fests.  She is a lot like me, kinda hippy and laid back but has a very organized and busy side of her that I've also benefited from.  She has been such a help since I was pregnant and now mommy of two and would always be busy picking up here and cleaning up there.  My kitchen has never been so clean and it'll definitely be an adjustment in my near future.  Anyway- she's a great friend. 

I took engagement shots of them a couple months ago.  It was such a laid back and fun time and I think they both enjoyed the whole shoot too.  I caught this series of shots toward the end of our shoot and it just shows how cute and playful they are and the heart of service that Karl has.  This is such the perfect time to showcase these pictures since they are getting married in LESS THAN A WEEK!!   Congrats you two- I've been pulling for you all along!  Can't wait to see you finally tie the knot (and get that girl outta my house!)..  Love you!
