There are several friends I will miss living a hop, skip and a jump away from when we move, and this family is certainly no exception. Vanessa and I have been friends for a few years now and met when she hired me to work at Liberty Market back when they opened in 2008. Since then we have both become mamas, changed jobs, shared a garden plot in a local community co-op, discovered new talents and passions, and supported and prayed for each other through it all. When Vanessa and Jason were expecting their son, Lincoln, their maternity photos were my very first shoot ever and they really encouraged me to pursue my journey as a photographer. I will forever be grateful to them for that 🙂 In the meantime, check out this digital preview of a gorgeous family captured on an Arizona winter morning.
