I'm a coffee loving, travel-obsessed, twenty-something based out of Central Illinois. I'm lucky enough to make a living doing what I love - photographing people! I specialize in weddings (destination + local), senior portraits, + boudoir.
It’s Paige and I’m taking back over the blog this week because it is Emily’s BIRTHDAY!!!! That lucky little bitch is in VIVA LAS VEGAS, hopefully living her best life!! She doesn’t know I’m writing this so it should be a surprise to see something posted on her big day. After all I needed some content and I didn’t want to bother her on her trip 😊
Over the last several years, Em and I have gotten pretty close, but this past year we’ve relied on each other for a lot of different reasons. She is funny, caring, blunt, creative….this list goes on. She has been through hell and back this year. Welcoming a babe, taking care of a sick babe, dealing with the rona, and working her ass off as a kick ass photographer!
She deserves a day (shit, more like a few weeks) to be spoiled. I know her hubs, Brandon will rock at the spoiling game. But, I want to make her feel special today from a couple thousand miles away so I asked a few special people for some birthday wishes to include!
I don’t know what I would do without you! You are such a loyal friend and an amazing wife and mother! Love ya girl, have a fabulous day, Em – you deserve it! 🖤 HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
“Wow, Emily! What would I do without you. You’re the best sister in law I could ask for, an incredible friend, and I can’t imagine my life without you! Happy Birthday! Love you!” – Sam
“Happy Birthday Em! From high school, to second shooting with you, to fire dept parties – we always have so much fun! Thank you for being you! I hope you have the best day ever because you deserve it!” – Kasey
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY my dear friend. I hope you are having an AMAZING time in VEGAS this week and CELEBRATING!! I love you and our friendship so much and I am incredibly grateful I get to do this crazy life with you as my friend!” – Kaula
“To the other sister I never knew I needed: Happy Birthday! Your friendship has meant so much to me and it’s hard to believe what has happened since becoming friends! From all the painting, cleaning, baby organization, 3 babies, hard losses, hospital stays, concerts, and being mistaken for each other all the time; know I am always here no matter what, love you” – Ashlee
