This is Mike & Lara. They are two of the most amazing people you will ever meet….and they are about to go from a family of 2…to a family of 3. I went to college with them. Lara was a bridesmaid in my wedding. Whenever we get together- I feel like I’m 22 again. I love that.
I had a great time taking their maternity photos. We laughed, did silly things, saw a crazy lady on a bike in downtown Prior Lake, had many great laughs (Lara-your laugh is so contagious…I love it, and Mike- keep the jokes coming!), and when I looked through their photos the night after our session I had an overwhelming feeling of being so blessed to capture such a unique time in their lives. I am one lucky woman to have some amazing friends and to capture all of those little things for them in a photograph that they may have otherwise long forgotten after the fact.
Baby Pedersen will arrive at the end of July. I am smitten to meet him. (yes HIM….finally a friend who is having a BOY! I cried when I received the call that they were having a little Mr.) And take his photograph. And kiss his little toes. And see two amazing friends grow and change and feel more love than they ever knew was possible in their hearts. Cheers to be coming parents friends-the best is yet to come. Love you. xo.
