I was blessed to have some great friends growing up and I am fortunate to still call many friends to this day even though the time and distance of the real world has come between many of us. It was a particular pleasure when two of those friends married each other some years ago and as married people often do, their two became three. Even though they live close by, too much time passes between our visits. So when I was asked to take a few pre-birthday pictures of the soon-to be two-year old, I jumped at the chance. Aside from the fact that I have never really photographed people and wanted that experience, it gave me the chance to see two friends I see far too little.
