This family session was very near to my heart, as I have been friends with this family for many years. I was able to spend a beautiful sunny afternoon with them, and it was nothing short of fun, relaxing and all around awesome.
If you ever have a bad day, and you wonder if there are truly nice people in the world – this family is one of them. There is no way I could capture in a blog what admiration and respect I have for Mo ( the stunning mother of Amanda) who is one of the most grounded and kind people I know. She might be my long lost fashion twin – we both are addicted to jewelry and handbags and designer jeans. We have shopped together so many times it numbers in the thousands!
Not only do I think Mo is amazing, but she is also one incredible mom. Her daughter Amanda is the type of girl that parents dream about. Smart, hardworking, dedicated, beautiful (with a beautiful heart too!) and grounded. She is probably the most traveled person I know ( all this and not even 22 yet… ) which makes me hope that one day she can sneak me in her suitcase on one of her many adventures 😉
Mo’s Hubby Mark, makes you feel instantly at ease. He gave me a fantastic tour of some beautiful area’s I had never been before – spending time with him feels like you have known him for an eternity.
Lastly, the handsome GQ looking model “Rudy” is Amanda’s long time boyfriend. To watch the two of them interact is so sweet, it is obvious that he loves her very much and that he has become a true part of her family. And what a great family to get to be a part of!
Thank so you much for our many years of friendship and for such a wonderful afternoon!
