It seemed just like yesterday when we were doing my high school bud, Jen’s, maternity session. Next thing I know, she’s asking me to shoot newborn baby Leila’s first photos. Where does the time go?!
Jen still lives in the same house she grew up in; the same place we had pep squad practice during the summer, except now she had her own family.
Big sister Ava, ever the scene stealer, pulled me straight into her bedroom as soon as I got there so she could tell me all about everything hanging on her walls, everything stowed in her jewelry box, and everything sitting atop her dresser drawers. It’s so hard not to love this little gal! She’s such a friendly sweetie pie!…and a smarty pants. Here’s a conversation she and I had while her mom and dad were tending to Leila:
Ava: Who are you married to?
Me: Ummm…no one.
Ava: How come?
Me: I don’t know.
Ava: Why don’t you know?
I couldn’t help but crack up. Now even 4-year olds were inquiring about my marital status. I started to wonder if maybe little Ava had a conversation with my mom before my arrival. haha!
And Leila? Oh goodness gracious – cuteness galore! From her various hair accessories and outfits, to her Stuart Weitzman ballet flats and baby Jordans, to her adorable, look-at-me-I’m-tiny features, it was all just a joy to be around.
Oh Jen – so happy that we’ve been able to catch up! What a beautiful family you have! Thanks for letting me document such a wonderful time in your life!
