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.

Halloween Photoshoot

As most of you know two of my closest friends have babies just weeks apart from Stella. So we obviously had to get them all together for photos in their Halloween outfits. They participated well… my toddler is another story.

These little babes will forever know each other. They’ll grow up together & be like family to one another. Matt & I come from very small families so our babes having little friends to grow up with is so fun for us. I think they make the cutest friends ever.

Like I said Adalie is impossible to photograph. The whole time we were taking photos she was running off to the park. Chasing the dog around & yelling “NOOO!” every time I asked her to get in a photo. I was lucky enough to get her into these two… toddlers are crazy & impossible. The bribery of ice cream wasn’t even working.

We decided to dress up with the kids for our little photo shoot. Lorin dressed up as Willy Wonka to match Koiya’s Oompa Loompa outfit & Jessica dressed as a little witch because owls & withes are best of friends. There is a little park right next to our place & that’s where we went to take our photos. It’s the perfect spot in the fall with all the fallen leaves & the big trees.

I couldn’t love these babies & their moms anymore than I already do. I look forward to all the years to come. The future memories to be made & the many adventures to come. What a lucky momma I am to have such amazing woman in my life.

A huge thank you to Lexi for taking photos of us. You make one sexy indian! Koiya is lucky to have such a sweet Aunt in his life.

Later on this week I’ll be posting some DIY tutorials & sharing the details on our Halloween outfits. For now enjoy this babe selfie. I just love her big blue eyes & chubby cheeks!
