You all know Lorin from a lot of my posts this summer. Her & I have been best friends for almost 10 years & still going strong. Our friendship has transformed into so much more over the past year. She has been there for me & the things I’ve gone through. She’s pushed me & motivated me while building my photography business. She truly has been an amazing friend & while she has been there for me through it all she has had her own challenges.

This last year for her hasn’t been easy. Really, it’s been far from that. But her strength through all she’s dealt with astonishes me. It’s amazing how far you’ll go to protect your child & she has done just that. She has gone to the  end of the earth to do all she can. She has lived her life day by day trying not to fear the outcome of the future. She wipes away her tears & loves Koiya with all the love she has.

Watching her this last year has proven to me anything is possible. Although I can’t compare her situation to me starting my own business, I can say that her constant positive attitude & outlook on life has really proved to me that what I am doing is possible… if I remain positive & remember that I can do it. She has helped me become a stronger person in so many ways because she is the strongest person I know.

I finally got to do some family photos of them. We did them up at Silver Lake which is a spot I’d been wanting to venture to. They came out perfectly. I seriously love these two so much!

I have this ongoing joke that she is my Anne & I am her Leslie. If you’ve watched Parks & Rec you’ll understand the personalities of the characters I speak of. If you haven’t watched it (like Lorin… I know)… well… you should. Lorin, like Anne is the reasonable one. She always is there to calm me down & make me think realistically. I’m a dreamer full of big ideas & plans…. I already have our summer 2016 planned out, don’t judge! We should basically play Anne & Leslie for real. But I guess all  I can have is the names… Lorin will be my Anne & I’ll be her Leslie. Forever.

Photoshoot: Evan’s Family Photos

DSC_0382

I am so excited to share these family photos with you all. Everything about them turned out perfectly. The lighting is magical, they are a gorgeous family & little Rykan is seriously the cutest kid ever. He is four years old & like most four year old kids there was a bit of bribing that went on to get those smile… but goodness, isn’t it the cutest smile ever?

The photos I got of just Amber are by far my favorite. The way the sun shines through her lace dress & her cute belly. In these photos she’s 38 weeks along, can you believe that? She looks amazing! I could tell baby Thea was sitting really low (They’re having a little girl & naming her Thea. Too cute, I know.) & I for sure thought I might throw her into labor by making her hike up little hills & track through bushes & tall weeds.

This shoot made me fall even further in love with photography. I have truly found my calling. 26 years later but I found it. I love working with people & engaging in a special moment with them. I love chatting with the little kids & capturing their silly sides. I am passionate about good customer service & love using my creativity as much as I can. As a photographer I get to use both of those. I can’t wait for my future & I can’t wait to share it all with you!

This little family is about to become my extended family. Zach is the brother of my future brother-in-law. So in just a few short weeks we will all be family. I can’t wait & I definitely can’t wait to meet, hold & snuggle that little baby Thea. I’ll leave you with the two most magical maternity photos you’ve ever seen!
