I love that this family was willing to trust me by letting me take them into some of the more colorful spots in our neighborhood for portraits. And I love that we can accommodate both an urban and verdant setting within just a few blocks. This exemplifies what I find so inspiring about living and working in Riverside.

My version of Throwback Thursday will be to post highlights from some of my favorite sessions. When I recently updated my site, I was reminded how slack I’ve been about blogging over the last few years.

I met this mama wayyyy back in college when we were art students abroad in Italy. It doesn’t seem THAT long ago, does it K? Until we look around and these husbands and little girls, then yeah, it was a LIFETIME  ago. But a good one, for the most part. I love that our friendship has continued and I love seeing you with your family because I know that is what you are really all about.

There are two things in life for which we are never truly prepared: twins. ~Josh Billings

I wouldn’t know first hand – I have a sister and three daughters myself – but the quote below captures what I imagine having a big brother like D might be like for Miss M from what I’ve seen in our times together. I just love this smart and dynamic family. It’s always a pleasure to spend a little time with the four of you.

Best relationship:

Talk like best friends, play like children, argue like husband and wife, protect each other like brother and sister.

It’s one of those annoying cliches that turns out to be true. Blink. Your newborn is walking. Blink. Third grade recital. Blink. Teenaged angst. Blink. Graduation.

Blink. My sweet friends with whom I shared many fun, single adventures are now the parents of these personality-packed kids.

Thanks for the honor of  chasing them down and capturing a little bit of this time. And for allegedly trespassing on a shut-down federal park with me. Who says our adventures are over? 🙂
