I had the privilege to have a another session with my best friend’s beautiful daughter, Avery. I became friends with her mom Leah when she was my daughter’s teacher for third grade. Our relationship grew over the course of that year (and not, necessarily, due to any phone calls or emails about Kaitlyn’s behavior in class *insert winky face emoji). We found that we had numerous common interests. She started coming over to the studio to do crafts and fun artsy things with a club I hosted every month. We became very fast friends, so close that when Avery was being born I was with Leah every step of the way. We did a maternity session, and Leah was absolutely glowing. I photographed Avery's birth, and even had to the honor of cutting the cord. Needless to say, I’ve been able to photograph Avery many times since she was welcomed into this world, and she is always a joy to be around.
