Getting older is crazy. Mainly because you keep getting older without really feeling any older. But then you look around and everyone is married and has kids – including the people you were kids with.
Jamie and I have known each other forever. FOR. EV. ER. (Sandlot reference, Smalls.) There are pictures of us together in preschool, and I remember countless hours riding around the neighborhood on our bikes. This, of course, was back in the day when our parents would just send us out of the house for hours without a clue of where we were. 😂After second grade, she moved to PIEDMONT. I legit thought that was like an hour away, but it was only 20 minutes. LOL! Somehow over the years we’ve always kept in touch and have added mutual friends. (Thanks, social media!)
Jamie messaged me on Instagram last month reaching out about a Mommy + Me session with her ADORABLE little boy, Ryder. He just turned six months old, and this weekend will be her very first Mother’s Day! I immediately knew I wanted to do the session with the lace traveling dress. And *sigh*. So perfect. Jamie was radiant in it (obviously, just look at her!) and seeing her dote on Ryder just about turned me into a puddle.
Ryder has the sweetest little two-tooth grin. I’ve been watching him since he was born on Instagram and I loooooved getting to meet him and his cheeks (seriously, I’ve been mildly obsessed with his cheeks for a while now). He showed off his happy, playful personality, as you can see. Mommy + Me sessions have taken on a whole new meaning for me since becoming a mom myself, and doing a session for someone I’ve known for almost 90% of my life was extra special. I loved getting to hang out, catch up, and discuss all things #boymom and our love of coffee. Scroll down to see a highlight of their gallery!
