Lindy and I met a long, long time ago. I was 12, she was exactly one year older. We believed our same birth date was a sign that we were destined to be best friends. Thankfully, she was pretty outgoing while I was still a bit shy. That didn't last long... Lindy was home schooled, so I would write her notes during class that I saved and gave to her on my walk home. It was a good time in my life filled with adolescent day dreams and hazy summer afternoons; ridiculous antics and a free spiritedness that would stick with me into my adult life. I was so glad to be able to see Lindy again and photograph her Christmas themed baby shower. We are both real grown ups now, a complete contrast to the youth we were then. We're married, I with two children and Lindy with one on the way. It's so sad to me that Lindy lives in Washington now, because I really believe watching our girls go through the stages that we went though together would just be amazing.
It was such a pleasure to photograph Savannah and Scott last week! They have such apparent love for each other, and the excitement that they share about bringing baby Troy into the world is written all over their faces! They are going to be amazing parents whose foundation is sound in their faith. I can't wait to see baby Troy, as are they and all their family and friends!
