This gorgeous mama of two is the matriarch of one of my favorite families to shoot around the holidays, not just because they are always so much fun to hang out with, but also because this mama happens to be a dear friend of mine. We have known each other for years, but I think it is our mutual love of family that brought us closer together as we morphed into middle-aged ladies who still know how look chill while rocking an off the shoulder sweater and leggings (albeit they’re now stained with baby vomit). As our families have grown and our calendars seem to fill up overnight, life seems to get in the way of getting together more often than I’d like. So when the holidays come around we use family photos as a good excuse to officially schedule time to get together!
I have seen her littlest one grow up from a tiny bebo to a little man, strutting around with an attitude and personality like no other. I have seen her oldest son and first love grow up into a handsome young man, who absolutely adores his baby brother. I also am pretty sure he has a girlfriend but I’ll have to interrogate him on that later when his mama isn’t around. And finally I’ve seen her adoring husband fall more in love with his beautiful family every day. I hope this crazy bunch has a wonderful Christmas, and can’t wait to get together with this mama again soon.
