I really don't know how to explain how much this family means to me. I love these kids. They are my kids BEST friends. They have had so many adventures together at their young age! My kids seriously miss these two when they go too long without seeing them. Like right now, it has been a few weeks and Ryder asked me a gazillion times this morning when they were coming over. Their mom, Addy, and I have known each other for a long time. We rode the bus together when we were little and I grew up with her younger brother. We didn't see each other for years until we were re-connceted by a tragedy. Now she is truly one of the most inspirational and important people in my life. I learn so much from her. Addy is a remarkable mom, so creative, authentic, confident, positive and really sees beauty in everything. She is my go to when I need advice (and a super cute outfit!!) She is like my wise older sister. She was a HUGE influence on me starting my photography business and I am so grateful for her push. Mike is pretty awesome too. He is such a great dad and husband, so kind and smart. He and Addy have such a dynamic marriage, they are the perfect couple. Seriously, what isn't there to love about this family?!?!?!
Love you, Addy! Thank you for everything. I cannot wait for this summer and all the fun stuff we will do with our kids, without you I would probably go insane over the summer!!
A little about these photos, we took these in their woods. I am a huge fan of at home sessions!!! The hammock photos brought tears to my eyes!! Totally them... real laughter, real love. AND the kids wore what they want, so no headaches there...so smart Addy!
