a couple of years ago, a new photographer moved to town.
always happy to make new friends (and since i loved her work) i emailed her. a few emails later this lovely lady, wearing a fun hat and carrying her little boy, showed up at my house to purchase my PC version of Photoshop (since i had just bought my first Mac).
that was the beginning of our friendship, and i can truly say that i am blessed to have such a wonderful friend.
Jayme is a local wedding photographer (just like yours truly) and has become someone that is near and dear to my heart. we love sharing stories and hearing about each other’s adventures in life, and would love nothing more than to live next door to each other (even though i’m pretty sure we’d never get any work done if that were the case). we are not that different in age (well, i think it’s 6 years or something) but we are at totally different stages in life, so i get to enjoy watching her little ones grow up and she gets to see me have fun with teenagers. it’s all good.
i was blessed to have been able to document Jayme’s baby bump last month, and i’m thrilled to tell you that she now holds a beautiful little boy in her arms. he’s the sweetest thing and will make a wonderful addition to the family.
true friends don’t come around every day, but i’m thankful for the ones that do, and especially for the ones that ask me to do some family and maternity photos for them. it was an honour.
