Old Friends, are the Best Friends

I just got back from Utah visiting my family, and a very rare meeting happened.  My two best friends from high school/college were all in our home town, and we were able to get together for an evening out.  I have not seen these girls in at least 7 or 8 years!  We had the best time just catching up--lots of laughs of  the funny, weird, things we did.  
This picture is one of my favorites.  We all must be about 20 years old--and can I just say, I hope overalls come back in style.  ;)  Could there be a more comfortable outfit--i think not!!  lol 
Kara hates this pic--but it was the last time we were really "together".  I knew I was going to be getting married, Jen was moving to New York to be a nanny, and Kara was going to  BYU Jerusalem for school.  We were leaving our youth, and heading out into the future.  :) 
 I LOVE this picture--it was taken at the airport saying good-bye to Jen, and we all got kind of teary, because we all knew.

So fast forward 14 years, and here is Jen!  She is about 6 months pregnant in these pictures, so she doesn't have a huge belly like you tend to see in maternity shoots, but, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to take some shots of my BFF from my childhood.  And wow, she has only gotten more beautiful with age.  

I'm kicking myself now that we didn't get a better picture of us together on our night out, since who knows when it may happen again.  But here we are after we'd laughed ourselves silly all night.  
I was so lucky to have them for friends.  Love them.

Baby Emma

This little sweetie is the third in her family.  She has two adorable big sisters to watch out for her.  She was awake for half of the shoot, which was kind of fun to see her beautiful eyes.
I love keeping my newborn portraits simple.  Usually I tell my moms to bring anything that have, headbands, hats, ect...and I have a few things.  My goal in photographing a newborn is when you look back on these photographs it won't be the headband that makes your heart ache, it will be the precious face that all too quickly grew up.

Lucas is two!!

How in the world is this kid already two years old?!?!  
And wow--I was not ready for his energy!  This little guy was busy!  He was running through the field, tripping and crashing on everything, but he loved it and never was bothered.  I needed to have worn my running shoes to keep up with him.  What a sweetie he is.  :)
Lucas's mom is a good friend of mine, who has been so supportive of me and this journey I've started.   She was pretty much my first subject that wasn't my own  kiddos.  I appreciate so much her encouragement and support these last couple of years.  Enjoy her handsome little man.  :)
