When I first moved to Phoenix, just over 5 years ago, I was hired as an executive assistant at a financial firm. That’s where I met Julienne. I immediately liked her. She was easy to talk to. She was honest. She was funny. She was real. It didn’t take long for me to considered her a dear friend.
Life has changed a lot since then. We no longer work together. She’s a mommy now. And I don’t see her nearly enough as I’d like to. But even with all those changes, I still consider her one of my dearest friends and feel lucky to know such a special person.
Julienne loves to document her life, especially her son. She takes many, many photos of her own. Anyone who belongs to her flickr page would know this. But every year she has a photographer document her son around his birthday. When she asked me if I’d be interested in taking his photos this year, I was honored and excited.
This was a great excuse to hang out with Julienne and her family. Her little boy is now 3, and he is amazing! He’s beautiful, smart, funny… he’s just perfect. My heart swells with happiness for her.
Julienne and her husband, Rob, are not only amazing people… they are gorgeous!! Seriously, is this a beautiful family or what?
I don’t know why, but these next two photos really got to me… in a good way. I just really like them.
Little “M” is so super cool in his big boy leather jacket. He is such an awesome little dude! When he hugged me at the end of the session, my heart melted. He’s going to be a little heartbreaker in a few more years!
