    Trig and Char!
    I’m so glad Char is okay. I can only imagine how scary and overwhelming that could be. Ironically, I was in a wedding this past weekend where I gained even more appreciation for your spectacular service. Ryan and I LOVED our photos, but I don’t know if I previously appreciated how quickly and efficiently you worked during the wedding. The photog at the wedding this weekend had the wedding party waiting for HOURS! And I’m still not sure if she got all the shots she was supposed to. Thank you so much! I still recommend you to everyone as soon as they get engaged! Be well.

    You are not kidding about her being tough. She shot my baby girl’s photos shortly before her stroke and then we heard nothing for six weeks. When she was on the mend and contacted me about what had happened, you would have thought she had a hang nail. Seriously, I’m still amazed by your story two hours after reading it! And really, she got our proofs back in a pretty timely fashion. Make her go rest. Shhheeesh! Thanks for everything. As I tell Charlotte each time I talk to her. Her pictures are beautiful. They always capture the sparkle in our kids eyes. Glad to hear she is on the mend.

    I’m so glad to hear Char’s back 100% (or more like 110%, as it sounds). What a scary situation, but I’m very happy to hear everyone’s healthy and happy!

  7. @Kathleen – “Make her go rest.” HA!
    I have been begging her to slow down for years. Nope. Not gonna happen. She was making arrangements and calling people in the Critical Care Unit of Swedish, on painkillers, head exploding… she was still arranging our lives. She’s kind of scary, really… ; )

  9. So glad to hear all is well. It is always scary when those things happen but it helps us appreciate everyday even more.

    All our best

  11. Absolutely terrifying. Charlotte, I’m so glad you’re ok. I can’t believe something like that could happen to you. I guess this is an important reminder for all of us not to take any moment for granted.

    And then shooting a wedding right afterward? You are a hero.

  13. Wow! What an incredible story. I am so glad that she is okay, and also that she managed to get off the road safely with your child. What a trooper, the more I know about you two, the more respect I gain.
    Sincerely,

  15. Truly remarkable! My brother, suffered the same event a year and a half ago…and he was 34 at the time. A very healthy, active young man…they believe his artery tore from lifting weights — squats with the bar!? I know this isn’t a blog about this condition but would like to make people aware that this is actually more common than we think. We have been taught to battle through a headache vs being paranoid about every ailment…. The docs initially thought it was the swine flu or bells palsy!?!? My brother was able to recover, only has mild headaches once in a while and has lost some peripheral vision. We are lucky to have not lost our loved ones. I hope Charlotte and family are doing well!! My heart sank when I read the post. Charlotte shot my budoir photos…truly made it a special event for me as a gift for my husband. Glad to hear Charlotte is back making others feel beautiful and special too!
    Take care!
