I met Kim when our daughters were just little toddlers and I joined the playgroup she started. Five years later that playgroup no longer exists, but our friendship continued and we thankfully kept in touch. Now that our daughters are in elementary school, we don’t see each other as much as we would like, but we have the kind of friendship that if we don’t talk for months, we can always pick back up again where we left off as though no time has passed. Over the years I have found it is challenging to maintain friendships with such a busy life at home with kids and running my own business. I’m incredibly grateful for a friendship like ours, and for the opportunity to photograph her family at a beautiful location such as Leo Carrillo Ranch. I love their colorful outfits, the joy and connection this family shares, these adorable little girls/their sweet sisterhood, and the gorgeous light we were lucky to have on this day. This reminds me I need to call her up today and set up a lunch to catch up….
