When I responded to a Facebook post asking if anyone knew someone who could take a few engagement photos, I never realized the dramatic effect it would have on my life. A few engagement photos in their gorgeously sun soaked backyard turned into being their wedding photographer. They returned home from their honeymoon with news of an impending special delivery. I was lucky enough to be their Gender Reveal photographer, and when the time came (a little too soon), I went to the hospital to join them in the NICU to capture the bittersweet moments there. It was only natural that I would do a proper newborn session with the family when they returned home as well.
It goes to show that the simplest action can shift your life. They’ve become some of our best friends. Our boys are all “bros”. Our families have grown, laughed, and danced (IS THIS TWERKING?!). Countless sleepovers, dinners, card games, video game tourneys, I have cherished it all. I look forward to watching their boys grow, as a friend and as their photographer.
