What can I say about the year 2016?
Boy was it a crazy year with many ups and downs. They say every cloud has a silver lining and the moments and memories we made this year make up for any of the bad we’ve experienced. Having a job we love has definitely helped sustain us this past year. You may have noticed that 2016 was a lighter year for us than past years. My sister & I found out we were both pregnant. We were expecting our babies just three months apart. The joy of our pregnancies soon turned into worry however, when just a few months into 2016 we almost lost my dad. He spent several weeks in the hospital, and there were times we did not think he would make it home. We were actually camped in the hospital waiting room awaiting news about my dad when my sister’s water broke. My nephew, Wesley was born on May 14, 2016.
He was the bright spot we needed in the darkness. My dad pulled through and made it home despite all odds. Our family fully believes that he hung on to meet his two newest grandsons.
Our son, Gianni Luca followed soon after. He was born August 12, 2016. He has brought us so much happiness in this season of our lives.
Thank you to my dear friend Soozie for Gianni’s newborn photos! (also a thank you to AMP photography for assisting as well!!)
We experienced our first international destination wedding. We loved celebrating with Melissa & Ryan in Montego Bay, Jamaica. In addition to our wonderful client weddings, we celebrated three family weddings this year! Keith & Samantha, Blaise & Kaity, and Alicia & Jeff.
We just want to take a moment to give a deep, heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our wonderful clients this year. You invited us into one of the most important days of your lives to let us capture the memories you will look back on. For that we are truly humbled, because without you we wouldn’t be able to do what we love… We wish you all many wonderful years of love, happiness & prosperity !!
