Years ago, when I was a baby teacher starting my first year as a 1st grade teacher, I met another fellow educator teaching right down the hall from me. Her smile was contagious, her passion for teaching was inspiring, and her kind heart spoke directly to me. We connected almost immediately and became friends instantly. Years later, we remain friends. No longer teaching together since our paths took us in different directions, but we still find ways to connect through the years.
And on this day, she chose me to photograph her beautiful family. A family that grew from two to four… a family that she wished for ever since i met her. The family that is her world and at the center of everything that she does. And as I stood there, photographing her girls as they played, my thought was this:
I am incredibly lucky to have met her and call her my friend. I am blessed to have her by my side and on my side. I am grateful to have witnessed her wish of being a mom become a reality. I am forever thankful for the “B” family.
