7 things:

1.  Emily and I go WAY back… back to the day she and my sister would watch me perform dance moves to Michael Jackson songs.   Embarrassing.

2.  Emily and Ben have a GORGEOUS home.   This is my 3rd time photographing Trussell there!

5.  Pierce(Trussell’s big bro) makes me laugh 1,000 times when I see him.
