“A friend is someone who knows all about you, and still loves you.”

These girls mean the world to me. Several of us have been friends since grade school. We’ve been through all sorts of stuff together; boyfriends, first kisses, college, weddings, babies, loss of parents, breast cancer, kids graduating, the list goes on. We have lots of pictures together over the decades, but most aren’t ones that you want to put in a frame and show people! 😉 So it took a LOT of planning and coordinating schedules, but we were able to make this quick photo shoot happen, and we didn’t let the rain stop us!  (Although Gale did complain that her hair was getting wet!) 🙂 I’m so glad we made this a priority. There aren’t words to describe what these friendships mean. We know no matter what happens in our lives, good or bad, we can call any one of us and we’ll be there for each other at the drop of a hat.  I look at my own 2 daughters and I pray they will be blessed with friendships like these.  Love you girls!  XOXO.

Special thank you to my daughter Abbey, who in the midst of preparing for her wedding in 3 weeks, took the time to come help me with shooting. Of course what she didn’t know was that Libby and Sandy had planned a big surprise bridal shower for her afterwards! And many of our daughters were there to help celebrate.  I love that our girls have become friends over the years also.  And I can’t wait to celebrate Abbey’s wedding with my BFFS.

I'm an introverted extrovert (for real!) I love meeting new people and making friends, but I also love just chilling at home with my family.  I have a slight obsession with my amazing clients and, as a past teacher, I love to mentor and coach other photographers! I'm so glad you're here!
