I hope this doesn’t end up sounding cheesy, because I really want to try my best to be cheese-free on the blog – but I have to say that this session was a bit of a “circle of life” moment for me. Because this is my lifelong friend Scott. One of the two brothers who I grew up having adventures with – putting on circus performances in their backyard, building massive tent-forts in their playroom and rigging up their red wagon so we could “drive” it down the (what seemed to me to be) giant hill in front of their house. Scott’s dad Wes was the camera buff when I was a little girl. The best pictures of me during my childhood were taken by him. He was actually the first person to photograph me, right after I was born – in the hospital. And now? I’m the one who gets to photograph his first-born grandson – just three days old. What a privilege.
Scott and his wife Keri live in New York now, so we were able to visit them on our trip there a couple weeks ago. Keri is beauty-queen gorgeous and as kind as she is lovely. Baby Holden is going to be one handsome little guy.
