Steph and Jeff are our neighbors. We have only known them a short time, but I kind of knew we would hit it off when we received an invitation to the pre-parade get together at their home and the invitation was neatly addressed in architectural hand-lettering. If you have visited my "About Lisa" page then you will know that I studied Landscape Architecture in college, where I developed a love of the lost art of hand lettering.
At the party we got to talking and Jeff proudly mentioned that Steph is a runner and has completed full Ironman Triathlons - that a 2.5mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and a full marathon, 26.2 miles. Basically, it's the hardest one-day sporting event in the world. Steph is also an Interior Designer and Caligrapher (you can find her on Instagram at www.instagram.com/northandbirch ). She is super talented.
Jeff and Steph are an incredibly sweet couple and just really good people. You can tell how crazy Jeff is about Steph and how much they love their baby boy from the photos below. Also, it may just me, but I was trying to figure out who Jeff looks like and it finally hit me - anyone familiar with Dr. DeLuca from Grey's Anatomy? After consulting with my 6-year old, we think the resemblance is uncanny.
I had so much fun photographing this sweet family and their lovable Golden Retriever too. It was an unseasonably warm November day and we soaked it all in. It was also extremely convenient to be within walking distance to the shoot location. Awesome neighbors are the best!
