These four girls are so very special to me. Nicky is my oldest friend, having met back in Kindergarten, and we grew up having sleepovers, staying up all night, sharing secrets and laughing until we cried. Seeing her as mom has made me think about those nights, and hearing her girls giggle the way they do reminds me so much of the fun times we had. (When I think back to this shoot a couple months ago, I can *still* hear their sweet laughter!) I loved getting a chance to hang out with them that afternoon, making silly jokes, watching bugs jump in the weeds and Lily's sweet face when a dragonfly landed on her arm. This was a session filled with joy, and posting this today makes me smile. I hope it makes you smile too.
