These images make my heart oh so happy! When I arrived at their home for this session, Asia’s best friend was there helping her get ready. It made me think back to when I first met Asia (and her best friend, Jen). It was 2008 and Jen called me and said she was a maid of honor and was throwing a bridal shower for her best friend, Asia and wanted me to photograph it. It was the beginning of my career as a photographer and since then I’ve been able to photograph Asia with her husband and puppies and then with Jack, for Christmas photos, and now with Dylan. I’m so grateful that they’ve stuck with me even though I’m sure those first photos weren’t all that stellar. I so appreciate their trust in me and for being part of my story as a photographer, but mostly I was really touched by their friendship. As I stood there in the bathroom watching Jen helping Asia do her hair, I secretly said a little prayer for my little girl, that she may be blessed with true friendships that last a lifetime and that she will have a friend who will hold her bouquet on her wedding day and then her newborn between photos.
Have you seen a perfect newborn? Meet Dylan:
Asia really created the perfect nursery for Dylan. I love each and every detail of her beautiful pink, gold and white nursery with touches of mint and black. Yes, you can go ahead and pin it. I know you want to :).
Makes my heart melt…
We ended their session outside right next to their house and I really love these too.
Thanks Asia and Craig for the honor of documenting yet another special moment in your story together!
