I love this little family so much. I’m so happy I had the opportunity to work with my friends, Sheila & Rene, and their adorable baby boy Niko. So, I will say that I had a lot to do with this couple getting together. Here is the story (my version! Lol!) – I’ve been friends with Rene since HS. As the years passed by, I became friends with Sheila. As soon as I met Sheila, I KNEW she was perfect for my friend Rene. I would constantly tell Ivan, you know who would be so great for Rene? Sheila! & Ivan would always tell me, not to play matchmaker, “if it happens, it happens! Let it happen naturally!” (insert my epic eye roll here!) Well, one day, our families were at the river together & I told Rene, “I have a friend who would be so perfect for you & I want you to meet her! She loves fitness just like you, she cooks, she speaks Spanish, she’s gorgeous & she has blue eyes!” & Rene said, “Nah, I’m good.” UGH! So then I have a conversation with Sheila, “Shei, you have to meet my friend Rene, I seriously think you guys would get along so well! He loves fitness & he comes from a great family!” & Sheila said, “Nope, not interested!” UGH! FINE!
Well, Ivan was right, because eventually one of them … I think it was Rene (he might say it was Shei! Haha!) reached out to Sheila & the rest is history. 3 weeks later they were married. 🙂
Our day started drizzly, but by the end of the day, the rain drifted & the clouds stayed. That’s okay though, because a cloudy day makes for gorgeous lighting.
Love this one! Needs to be printed asap!
I love working with young ones. At the age of 2, all they want to do is explore. They want to pick up every rock, play with every stick. I say, let them! Let them run & play. It’s my favorite part of every family session. They are only 2 once right? Let them be small & have a blast. It truly makes the best photos.
Kisses are the best!
My friends are good looking people. What in the world!?
Gorgeous. Love this one too!
& of course, I have to include a photo of just mama.
