Last week I drove up to my dear friend’s house and spent a few hours photographing her sweet family. Shannon and I have been friends since college. We were roommates and survived nursing school together. We were in each other’s weddings. When I was pregnant with Eli, she was pregnant with her second and we delivered only a few months apart. We live on opposite ends of the cities, yet we still find time to meet in the middle here and there and catch up over coffee or in yummy little new found restaurants in South Minneapolis. Her friendship has been a blessing throughout the past 15+ years.
A year ago she and her husband welcomed baby #3 to their family and I was thrilled to have him to cuddle on our coffee date meet ups. He is one of the sweetest and happiest babies I know. It’s fun to see how his older siblings love him up and play with him. It’s obvious he is adored and a perfect little addition to this crew.
We spent a little time at their house before heading to a park on a warm summer afternoon. I love these story telling sessions, love them even more when it’s a dear friend. See our time together below, music by Joy Williams.
