A few months ago, I visited my best friend at her home to photograph her new baby boy. It was a small session and I don't think the poor little guy was into having his picture taken, but it was such a wonderful morning!
Going through the photos afterward made me emotional. This girl has been a best friend of mine for more than ten years now. I still remember the summer we started our friendship. It was at a youth conference in the-middle-of-somewhere, Missouri. I had known her and her family for all my life and while I don't remember the exact circumstances, I remember that was the year we clicked. After that conference, we went on to have dozens of sleep overs, movie nights, outdoor adventures, and so much more. And seeing these photos, it hit me once again that we're all grown up now. She is a beautiful wife and mother and I hope you can feel her love for this baby through these photos as much as I could when I was there in the flesh.
Thank you, Nellie, for letting me capture these!
