I first of all wanted to say, how honored I am to know Kari.
Although I didn’t really have a choice in the matter (with us being sisters), I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world.
I am so blessed to be her business partner, friend and sister.
Here are a few things I know about Kari (that not everybody knows), and would like to share…
Kari is the life of the party- anywhere she goes, people swarm around her because of her bubbly personality and her free spirit.
And with her bubbly personality comes a vivacious laugh. You can’t miss it. It’s pretty loud,ok, really loud.
Her little nose slightly flares while laughing. And her eyes get squinty.
Its pretty cute.
Everything she does is 100% done with her heart. She is one of those people who put herself last, and goes the extra mile to help those around her.
She is one who wears her heart on her sleeve. This past July, she married the man of her dreams and when they are together you can see the love ooze.
They are eachothers soulmates. They complete one another.
Kari is the type of girl who can get all dolled up’ with a flashy pair of heels, and then the next day wear jeans and a t-shirt.
She is beautiful inside and out.
Now, to state the obvious- she is a FABULOUS Photographer!!!!
Her talent radiates in her photos. She looks through her camera alot differently than most photographers.
Even though she shoots countless weddings and engagement sessions each year- each wedding has a flare, is unique and breathtaking.
She see’s things that other do not see. She is creative, unique and an inspiration to many, including myself.
Here are some Fab Photos of Kari with a couple of questions that I got her to answer for me!
** Also make sure you check out our FREE photo session give-away**
What is your favorite accessory:
haha, thats a random first question, but it would have to be my “wedding earrings”. I wore them for the photoshoot. I wear them pretty much anywhere.
I feel so glam if I put those blingin’ things in. lol
Are you a Dog or Cat lover?
Dog. Hands down. I don’t like cats. Well, I don’t mind them.. if they’re outside cats.
I hate when they rub/curl up around my legs… besides anytime I am around them the taste of ‘cat’ gets in my mouth. wierd i know.
Greatest day of your life?
Marrying Matthew of course!! Wouldn’t trade it for the world!
2nd greatest day of your life?
The day my dad introduced me to chocolate! My hippy mom wouldn’t ever give us sugar…
the only sugar we saw was nectar from fruit.
Thank you dad!!!
What feature do you not like about yourself?
My hair. I wear extensions alot. I wish it was long and thick. Oh, I can’t help but think of all the moola
wasted buying “hair growing” products…
Thanks mom, for giving me the hair I always wanted. not.
Also, something that not many people know is that i have very little ears…
I got made fun of in jr.high because of my ittybitty ears. kids are cruel.
Looking back on your past, what was something embarrassing that you did,
that you thought was cool at the time?
Oh man… I totally know the answer to this one.
I had braces, and with each holiday I would change the ‘bands’ on the braces to the holiday colors…
Example: Christmas- Red/ Green. Halloween- ORANGE/BLACK, Easter-Pink and green.
That was not cool, even back then. But somehow, my little mind thought it was.
Do you play sports?
mmm… not so much anymore. But i use to play basketball. and boy oh boy, I sucked at it.
One time my friends/family came to watch me at my game, and I was not doing good
( lets just say, I tried to get a ‘basket’, and then later realized it was
on the opposing teams hoop… i even MISSED that shot!!)
So when another member of the opposite team went for a ‘layup’, she fell and landed on me,
I wasn’t hurt at all… but i pretended that my knee was badly injured, so that i could sit on the bench, and have
some dignity left. I was so embarrassed.
I had to fake a limp for a few days. pretty tricky thing to do.
Desk- Mess or Organized?
100% organized. 100%.
Red. Hands down. It was my wedding color.
ALTHOUGH, pink is a close second.
Ok, I have a few… I am pretty scared of heights. I am a little scared of the dark- I hate walking around town (by myself) at night, or even in my house. My lights are
always on, and when I have to turn them off before bed, I run from room to room. I know. Its immature. But its the truth.
And I am also scared of eating seafood…. I guess thats not really a fear…but I won’t eat it. You couldn’t even force my mouth open.
Do you like music?
I LOVE music… but only certain kinds. I love the laid back indy type of music. I love ‘love songs’ whether its country, indy or classical.
Music inspires me. I can listen to the same song over and over and over again. and Never get sick of it. Mr. Burgess loves that about me. LOL
If I ever get frusterated, I just listen to music and close my eyes.
I know you went to Thailand, would you go back?
AHHH!!! In a heartbeat!! Its beautiful there!! I am still crossing my fingers on a destination wedding in Thailand!!
When are you planning on having kids?
haha… umm.. well lets just say, that we’re in no hurry!!
