I have known Leanna and her family for years and years; since I was a little girl. However, mine and Leanna's friendship flourished when I began going to the same high school as her my junior year. We immediately hit it off and the rest is history. I love Leanna because of her kind and gentle nature. She is a faithful friend who somehow holds the ability to pick up right where we left off each and every time we see one another. Thankfully, we see each other MUCH more now that I'm back in North Carolina but, even while we were stationed in Tennessee, Leanna found the time to come visit, she set aside time for me when I came home and no period of time ever made things awkward for us. I just attribute that to true friendship. I consider her one of my very best friends and I'm blessed to know her.
Little did we know, back in high school, that, today, we would have husbands and families of our own. That we would be trying to figure out this grown up world one day at a time. But, here we are. I have had the absolute honor of photographing many of Leanna's milestone moments in life: her engagement photos, her bridal portraits, her pregnancy announcements, maternity, birth, newborn and, this year, her first family photos.
Noah was such a little trooper and gave me the absolute best grins the whole evening. I love that sweet, little, red headed boy! He is something special to me. And, I think a lot of Leanna's husband, Justin. I love how he loves Leanna and I love the father that he is. Noah already looks up to him, I can tell.
Enjoy some highlights from our afternoon together!
Thank you again, Leanna, Justin and now, baby Noah, for trusting me with your most precious memories.
