Growing Up, Growing Down

Watching your friends grow up is wild. I've known Milford since 7th grade, so about the age of 12, and we've made it to 28...incredible. That's roughly 16 years, meaning it's the kind of friendship where you have plenty of embarrassing stories to tell about each other since at this point, you're basically brother and sister. 

Now he has a beautiful wife, Sarah, an adorable babe, Callie, and another babe on the way, Sadie Grey, Who I'm sure will be just as beautiful. He loves his family so well and wonderfully. It's fun watching them interact. Also, they are super silly when trying to take photos.

I haven't known Sarah quite as long as I've known Milford, but I've had the pleasure of calling her my friend for a solid 5 years. Not only is she absolutely hilarious, but she's also stunning. I was so excited when she asked me to photograph their maternity session last week. We went to the Botanical Gardens at Skylands Manor in Ringwood, New Jersey during the most perfect time on a gorgeous day.

Oh stahhhp, they are just so dang cute.

As we grow up, we also grow down. Having kids (I don't have any of my own, but I've been a camp counselor for uhm forever haha) seems like such a sweet season in life. Sure, you have to discipline, but you can also play again and pretend. There's a magic in childhood that we can live once again.

And this little girl is a sweetie...even when she's giving angry fists, haha!

These are just some more of my favorites. Some more of my friends.

Love you guys. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of this adventure!
