This beautiful young lady (haha – I feel like one of our moms) is my cousin. But honestly, my cousins have always felt more like sisters & brothers to me since I am an only child. We spent endless summers splashing in the pool, running around the yard, & traipsing through the fields that surround my childhood home. Sometimes my heart longs to be closer to “home” so I could be in their lives more than I am now. But, I love & appreciate the fact that we all make it priority to be present in each other’s lives – through texts, calls, birthday parties, holidays, & all that jazz. And thankfully, we are not that far from one another.
Last Christmas, we were introduced to this new guy…Matt. He was quiet, but then again, I would be too around our not-so-quiet-most-of-the-time family. haha! I suppose we can be a bit to take in at times. Obviously we didn’t scare him away. So, when Kayla asked me to do a session with them, I was beyond excited to. We met up at LMU in Harrogate & enjoyed quite a few laughs as we walked around, climbed not so easy hills to find a great spot, & took a few shots in between. I loved watching them together – they were giggly, happy, & oh so in love…just as it should be.
Is she not gorgeous?! Matt, you are a lucky man, my dear.
