Emily & Marty are so incredibly sweet & fun….that it didn’t even feel like I was breaking my own rules and working during our family vacation last week. We had spent the week down in Portsmouth, NH & an entire day at the Strawbery Banke Museum poking in all the old houses & shops. Later in the evening, I returned to the grounds to photograph Marty & Emily and we had a perfect summer evening walking around the historic grounds and buildings…..BUT, if you had told me in advance that we were going to end up back at their adorable house, in their bedroom to photograph the two of them with their kitty? I would have cringed…and said, “er, um, I don’t think that will work.” We were just chatting and it came up organically, as a joke, and then we realized, “hey, that would be really cool and fun, and why not?” So, I got to meet their kitty, Kanga…..who happens to be a Maine Coon cat, just like my old kitty Rodeo was….and the personality of Kanga was so much like my Rodeo, that it made me smile. Plus, Emily, had prints of my favorite artist, Anna Rifle, proudly hung above their bed…..Although, I shouldn’t have been surprised, since Emily is the creative mastermind behind Lulu & Roo Design Studio….The night was perfection & I can’t wait for these two to get married next year.
