Carefree Family Photography | The Boulders Waldorf-Astoria Resort

Friendship is such an interesting concept. Most of best friends are friends I’ve met in elementary school, friends I chose when I was 6,7, 10, 12 and are still my very best friends today.

But the Trepeck (and now Harris) family roots way farther back than even those friendships for me. Originally from Michigan, I was so sad to leave my friends and family to move to Arizona. So every summer as far back as 3rd grade I would fly back to Michigan for a month spending a week with grandparents and aunts and uncles AND The Trepecks! Though 2,000 miles spanned between us our friendship always picked up right where we left it every summer and sometimes their visits to Arizona. Even in more recent years where years went by without seeing each other or even talking, the friendship was right where we left it and always full of lots of laughs and inside jokes.

I’m almost tearing up thinking about how touched I am that upon their recent visit to Arizona, they asked me to photograph their now expanding family. Julie’s married to Billy who I adore and they have the cutest 3 month old baby boy!! To be able to capture these memories for them is beyond special for me. Mostly because I know how precious memories are. (see end of post).

When you’re from the midwest, family photos would be incomplete without a little matching!

And now for some nostalgic laughs! I wasn’t lying, we’ve known each other forever! Sorry Jules (and Norm), had to be done! xox
