Recently, I was discussing with a good friend of mine how I've been working on my photography and developing more technical skills.  She surprised me by asking if I would be willing to do some family photos before their new baby was born (she was about 8 months pregnant at the time).  After quickly explaining that I haven't done much portrait photography - but would be willing to try if they wanted to be my guinea pigs - we agreed to figure out a time and place.

Since the weather has been so gorgeous here in the NW lately, and considering I don't exactly have a studio to use, we decided on a nearby park that her husband and daughter had been to previously.

hope, a dream of possibilities."

It has been fun spending time with Ben, Ania and Hailey recently and to watch them get ready to welcome their new baby girl and sister into the world.  Baby's are truly a blessing and a miracle - a sign that life can be good and innocent and sweet.

I felt blessed as well to have the opportunity to both spend time with my good friends and hopefully give them some memories to hold on to for years to come.

There will be more to come from this family once the baby is here - lots of sister pics on the way...
