little boy blond | a session with that family next door.

More and more I’m realizing just how much fun neighbors can make your life. They can become friends conveniently located right next door or down the street. I consider us so lucky to have made incredible, lifelong friends through a few of our neighbors. So when the house right next door emptied out this summer, Mike and I became pretty nervous. BUT. But all our fears went out the window when we met Renee and Steve, and their little guy Barrett, who is just six months older than Sophia. Four crazy short months later I feel like I’ve known them forever. It’s a strange and wonderful feeling all at once. That feeling where, if Renee stops by, I really don’t feel the need to move the unfolded clean clothes off my couch. I’m not sure if that makes me come off as a complete slob or just impolite…but I like to think of it as having a certain amount of comfort with her. And there’s only a small amount of people I don’t move my wrinkled clothes for. 🙂

Ok, I’ll let you fall in love with them now…and Wrigley too!

So we decided to have an ice cream break. I don’t think Barrett was too unhappy with that decision!

Possibly my favorite from the session:I love haze. And a beautiful couple. You guys are simply awesome.

    Alyson, I bought them all and I have a few idea where to put them all. I’m keeping a few walls bare just for these! 🙂ReplyCancel
