Oh, how I adore this darling little girl!  Miss Ingrid was so, so sweet during her newborn session ... I could have cuddled her forever!  As a mommy myself, I think that one of the most amazing things to witness are friends thriving in their newfound role as parents; and these two are absolute naturals!  Watching the connection between Tessa and Ingrid (whom she affectionately called 'Peanut'), and Josh and Ingrid (whom he cheekily called 'Scallywag' ... after a certain potty incident occurred) tugged at my heartstrings and warmed my soul.  This little girl is equal parts blessing and blessed ... a blessing in so many people's lives, and blessed beyond measure to have Tessa and Josh for parents. .

I think that one of the most amazing 'perks' of marrying my husband, was getting to claim his group of friends as my own ... whether they like it or not ;)   I feel as though I've known these two forever (and maybe through osmosis, I have?) and as with any good friendship, you can pick right up where you left off the last time you saw each other.  My time with this sweet family was just that, and as we said our goodbyes, I couldn't wait to see them again - to continue the conversation, and of course love on Ingrid some more.  I may or may not have stopped by their house after the session under the guise of dropping dinner off for them ... but really I think we all know it was to see Ingrid again :)


I truly can not wait to watch Ingrid grow up along side my children ... as they say, history has a way of repeating itself - and I pray that this is the case with a second generation friendship :)


xo, Jessie
