Circle of Life

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.

You know it’s going to be a precious photo when folks start crying during the session. : )

Believe it or not, this is grandma!    

Congratulations, to my oldest friend – on his new life adventure.

  1. Your blog is always 100% cheese free. And baby Holden is so stinkin’ adorable I could just eat him up. And how did I miss the rest of your NY trip? (I saw much on FB). Love it.

  2. Whitney,
    You just brought tears to my eyes. Scott sent me the link to your blog. Your words are beautiful and touching. Scott feels the same about you. You are both so blessed to have such wonderful memories of your friendship as children. I am so glad you were able to connect again after all of these years. Thank you for taking such amazing photographs of our family, and especially, Holden. we will treasure them always. We hope to see you again very soon. we send lots of love to you and your family.

    Keri
