    Can I tell you how much I love this couple?  I love Coker and Jen so much.  They are two of the coolest people on

    Meredith Hopkins: I love your pictures! You are very talented! I'm Christine's friend and have known her for about 16 years. I'm very thankful for the pictures you have taken of Lisa's family and am so glad you are getting them published and getting the recognition you deserve! I am looking forward to you taking picts of my family....of course I have to ask my husband. LOL The last time we have had our family picts taken was when when my youngest daughter was 4 months old.....she is now 10....I know, crazy, huh? I have seen what you can do and really am excited to see how you can capture us! Keep up what you are doing. God really has blessed you with a talent! (Jan 30, 2009 at 13:59 pm)
