Shannon and Tommy met at the University of Kentucky – GO WILDCATS! I know this because, well, because I was there. Shannon and I were both Kappa Kappa Gamma sisters at UK and we had a very fun four years in college. Shannon and Tommy got engaged during undergrad, and Kappa does a very special candlelight ceremony to celebrate. This all seems like forever ago – I am pretty sure I just saw a post about Shannon planning their 10 year wedding annivesary. Where does the time GO!?
Well for the Grace family, their time has been well spent! After moving back to the midwest I was able to reconnect with Shannon and meet her beautiful family now including Carter + Charlotte. We have done photos together for 2 years now and it has been incredible to watch their children grow.
Carter is doting a big brother, very loving and sweet in some moments and ALL boy at other times. He was a great remodel for Charlotte during our photo session.
Shannon swears that Charlotte is a little bit more like her than Carter is, insisting that Charlotte comes by her, sweetness, strong convictions and a little bit of sass quite honestly. They are the perfect siblings together, encouraging one another and just goofing and having fun.
It was a blast to follow this family of four around on a quiet summer evening in the park. Ice cream cones always make for the best photo props!
