This family has a special place in my heart. We both moved to Asheville close to the same time. All of our kids line up perfectly age wise (except now they have one up! Can’t believe you have 5 boys, Lew!) and they were all the best of friends which meant many playdates and long hours that we could actually talk while the kids played. Leslie saved my life and kept me (mostly) sane when our kids were just babies and I was learning how to mother.
And then? She moved. And my heart broke.
Thankfully she’s only a few hours away but still, life gets busy and it’s hard to keep in touch. I’m so grateful that when we are able to get together we can just catch up where we left off. There are just no words to explain the impact this sweet mama has had on my life. I feel so blessed to call her friend. And so blessed to be able to photograph her incredible family again. She’s been with me since the beginning of this journey and has always pushed me to follow my dream!
That one on the right is one of my faves! I just love how much this new little man is loved and adored by his older brothers.
Love that last one so much!
Seriously love these boys!
