Howdy! I’m Kaleigh — the face behind all things Sissy!
I graduated from Texas A&M University in December 2017. WHOOP! Following graduation, I obtained my teaching certificate and have taught both first and second grades for three years at public schools in the area. I married my best friend, Riley, in March of 2019, and soon after, a sweet baby boy named Tripp made his appearance and changed our lives forever. Tripp is actually my reason for taking this fun yet frightful leap to finally purchase a vintage camper. I have always LOVED the idea and thought it really “jazzed up” events, such as weddings, giving guests something to do during cocktail hour and getting those unforgettable before and after photos!
In July of 2021, I was browsing Facebook Marketplace when I came across Sissy: a 1969 Forester camper with plentiful character and charm, and in need of a lot of love. I took a leap of faith with a knot in my stomach and worked out a deal. The next day Sissy came rolling in behind my dad and mom all the way from San Antone. It was love at first sight for me, however, my dad and hubby felt differently. They stood there shaking their heads realizing that we had A LOT of work cut out for us (mainly my dad.. thanks Davie).
I have always been infatuated with all things classic. My mom jokes that both my sister and I were born in the wrong decade. Although we are very different, we share the same love for vintage finds, 70s and 80s rock bands, and any opportunity to be creative. My sister had a BIG hand in helping me brand and design this photo camper, so Maddy — THANK YOU!
Although Sissy has been around and has seen more than I could possibly imagine, our adventures together have just begun. We hope that one day Sissy and I can be a part of your story, too. We can’t wait to make memories with you.
