I met Erin Ryser, an incredibly talented hair and makeup artist based in Atlanta, last spring when we worked together on a editorial at the Tate House. Upon meeting Erin, I just fell in love, not only with her adorable accent, but also with how kind and sincere she is in every situation: from genuinely caring about all that she meets to how wonderful she is as she shows brides how beautiful they are when she does their hair and makeup for their wedding. Since the spring, she has become one of my dearest friends, one that came at just the right time and who was an answer to prayer.
When Erin asked me to come photograph Jack, her husband Joe, and herself in their home, I couldn't have felt more honored. I loved being able to watch them spend time together, doing what they love most. They played some Bruno Mars, danced in the kitchen together, made some cookies, and snuggled with little Jack in the afternoon light. This family is so precious to me and dear to my heart. I am so glad to be able to share these two with you!
