Cruzing into 2017 with exciting new things....

It is no secret that I enjoy seeing my families year after year. Watching the little ones grow into amazing little people. It shocks me time and time again how much a human can change in a year. It's also so fun to see my friends develop into these incredible parents. These two parents are some of mine and my husbands closest friends. It's hard to believe that almost 10 years has passed. Between the softball games, house parties, wine tastings, weekends away, date nights, pregnancies, new lives and loss of lives, they have been there. Tried and true. They are amazing people, amazing parents and amazing friends. Watching them with their boys is such a blessing. And capturing all the moments through the years has been even more so. But that's not all......

...... just when I thought our day was over, Nicole asked if I could take one more photo! She pulled out the tiniest TOMS I have ever seen! A new little Cruz is coming their way and I couldn't  be more thrilled for them.

Where there is the Speers, there is adventure....

Whenever Jenna calls me about family photos I get extra excited. I know I wont be going to any of my usual stomping grounds. She is always prepared with an adventure, new gorgeous locations and family fashion that is sure to impress. In fact, when it comes to my own family photos, she is my go to girl to figure out what to wear. Not because she is a fashion designer or anything, just because she totally has the eye for it. Things that I would never think to put together, she does and it works! 

Being abound the three of them is always a barrel of laughs as well. Kason sure got a good mix of both Jenna and Mikes personalities. So when the three of them get going, I end up in tears from laughing so much. And oh if I could have a fraction of their energy. This family never stops. Between the workouts, the family boxing sessions, the family hikes, beach days, casting calls for little Kason, preschool, softball and full time jobs. I don't know when they sleep. But whatever they are doing it works. The three of them could take on the world together. 

I cannot wait to see where Jenna's adventures take me next!

Here comes the fast pitch.....

Sometimes life throws you a few curve balls, and sometimes you feel like you are standing in front of a non stop pitching machine that'w throwing nothing but 100 mph fastballs to the face. I have been encouraged time and again by my friends strength, faith and resilience through the past year. Her and Ryan have stayed steady and hopeful that at the pitching machine will break and that the home runs will abundantly follow. 

What I love most is that they put their tribe above it all and make sure that at the core they love each other and take care of each other. That was so clearly shown through out our day together. If one fell they were all there to pick them up and dust them off. They made sure it was fun. The best sessions are the ones when families can be themselves. There is no yelling or demanding. There is love, there is play, there is life lived out loud. And capturing that is the best gift I can give any one. 

Even though it may not have been the BEST year for their family, they can look back on these family and know.....Life is good.
