I recently photographed the family of one of my dearest childhood friends. Â One of the things I thought of was how truly fortunate it is to grow up with someone and then watch their children grow up as well. Â There are many special and unique pearls to lifelong friendships, but having that type of intimate knowledge and experience of another person’s life is really such a wonderful privilege. Â Perhaps it is easier for me to reflect upon it as I look at their images, but this one especially jumped out at me as the essence of growing in the way of family. Â Here is baby Halsten being loved on to calm some distress.
Next in line is Laurie Schultz fromÂ Cincinnati, Ohio. Â You can find her post on “grow” here: Â http://schultzeegirl.blogspot.com/2012/10/project-52-wk-39.html
