When I first met our amazing neighbors, I had no idea I would come to be so close with their daughter. Laura is one of the most genuine friends I have ever met. She has such a passion for teaching, which instantly knit our hearts together. Everyday, she is making a BIG difference in the lives of elementary children and it's so satisfying to give back to her and her family. Her husband, Wes, is in the Air Force and I'm forever grateful for the dedication he gives to our great country. Not having the luxury of always being at home makes photos like these extra special to them. I wish I could describe to you the feeling I get when I observe these parents absolutely dote on their precious baby girl. Adoration radiates from mom and dad in such a raw but tender way; its so beautiful. I had the privilege of shooting their maternity session when I was first starting out. Their belief in me back then helped boost my confidence in such a powerful way. Now, photographing sweet Abigail Rae in all her preciousness has created a circle of love between me and this sweet family. I can't wait for many more sessions with them!
