When becoming a parent, its essential to have those friends that just get it. Those friends that are also experiencing the "I have no idea what I am doing". The people that don't judge you when you cancel plans at the last minute because of a nap or are running late because your kid just peed all over themselves.
This wonderful lady is just one of those people. She has been one of my leading comrades in the adventures of parenting.
Between naps, work, travel and lack of sleep, I am so glad I got the opportunity to photograph her lovely little family in this lovely little park on a perfect summer evening. The outdoors have played such a large roll in the lives of this couple, it only seemed fitting that they be photographed in it.
