This may not be the last time that you hear me say, "I photographed a really special family recently," but without a doubt, nothing could be more true of this family. To give you a little bit of background, I was honored to photograph Christina and Tassy's wedding. Christina's mom and I are old friends from high school and life is funny that way. . .One minute you're sharing carefree, silly and drama-filled high school days with someone, and the next day you're photographing their daughter's wedding.
All couples have their own special story, how they met and why they were meant to be together, however Christina and Tassy's story is truly extraordinary. Both of them are compassionate, determined, (and I'll add silly and sweet) people with a passion for helping others. Both of them beat the odds and overcame medical conditions that threatened their lives at a young age. And while those challenges may have deterred some people, they somehow seemed to fuel Christina and Tassy's desire to do more. In fact they met through mission work in response to the devastating 2010 Haiti earthquake. You can read more about Christina's good work in Haiti here. Learn more about the amazing nonprofit organization, Team Tassy which is changing hundreds of lives every day for the people of Haiti.
Now fast forward a little bit and enter ridiculously adorable baby. . . meet their son, Elijah.
I had so much fun hanging out with them during our session. Here are a few more favorites. You can see their gallery (Allison Park Family) on my web site.
