First year portraits of Everly Mae!
Once upon a time Lyndsay and Mike came and sat on the floor of my living room with me for a couple hours to talk about their wedding day. From the moment they walked into our little condo in a not-so-great neighborhood in the early days of SMP – I knew they were my people. We talked for hours! We laughed, we shared excitement about the same things and I knew taking their wedding pictures would change my life. Sure enough, it did. Lyndsay and Mike let every wall down, invited me in and helped me create images that are, to this day, some of the most cherished I’ve ever created. Our friendship and photo love affair didn’t stop with their wedding though. We did their day after session, their 1st anniversary portraits and then the day came that I got the email telling me that my favorite couple was on their way to become my favorite family. They were having a baby! There began the year of Everly Mae. If I have things go the way I want them to, this beautiful girl will someday marry my son and Lyndsay and Mike and Dustin and I will be the worlds coolest, globe-trotting grandparents of some undoubtedly adorable grandkids. Fingers crossed! With Everly having her first birthday last month I wanted to share what the Year of Everly Mae looked like. The photo above turned me into a puddle. I always tell people I love watching the beginnings of a family – but Lyndsay and Mike have taught me that I REALLY love watching the growing of a family. I feel so incredibly blessed to have been able to witness the beginning of this family – from becoming husband and wife to becoming mom and dad. Have a peek at Everly and ALL the joy she brings!
