This newborn session is incredibly special to me. You see, Taylor has been my best friend since freshman year of high school. That means we have been through a plethora of life events together (awkward stage of wearing braces, chemistry exams, high school graduation, moving away to school, graduating college, first *real jobs*, living on our own in Philadelphia, meeting, dating, and marrying the loves of our lives who became great friends, being each other’s bridesmaids, etc.). But the most amazing life event we’ve celebrated together thus far has been becoming mothers within 8 months of each other.
Seeing Taylor hold her baby girl, Parker, is so surreal. When I visited her in the hospital I felt as though the past 16 years flashed in front of my eyes. Taylor has grown from this sweet, silly, and hilarious young girl into the most beautiful, intelligent, and loving woman and I am proud to call her my friend and it fills my heart with so much joy to know that Parker gets to call her, “Mom.”
Taylor and Lex, I am so incredibly happy for the two of you and I feel so blessed to be a part of your lives. Thank you for entrusting me with your precious first memories of your sweet angel, Parker, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for your beautiful family!
