A Mother’s Pride and Joy + Two Goofballs
So… what’s the weather like in Michigan??? Well to be quite honest, I know nothing about Michigan other than the fact that my very close friend Alexis, my official restaurant buddy, is pursuing her Law degree there. I imagine it’s quite cold right now, and she is either digging her car out of snow, experimenting with a new recipe, or spending the day at the school library. What a life!
On one of her last trips home, Lexi asked me to take photos of her and her number one fan… her Mom. I just love to see these two together. They are the best of friends and are constantly looking out for each other. Lexi’s Mom is the perfect example of what a mother should be: nurturing, patient, strong and always counting on her daughter to do the best at EVERYTHING she does. As her rock, her Mom waits in anticipation for the day her daughter walks across that stage (for the third time) towards her dream of being a lawyer (and returning home).
Until then, they continue to treasure quick visits, and endless calls to each other, checking in and sending love.
On a beautiful day in December, we were able to capture the following shots at Tree Tops Park with a proud Mom and her loving daughter. Wondering where the Goodball part comes in? Well, at the end of this session, I made the mistake of asking Lexi and her beau if they wanted me to snap a few shots of them and after a weak 10 seconds of denial, they both ran over to a walking path and went into full foolishness mode!
I hope you guys enjoy and I look forward to documenting more moments with you!
