Paris, France

Emily and I have been friends for nearly 6 years. We met at a mom/baby group back in Tucson when our babies were infants. I was the “seasoned” parent in the group, having already had one child. Although, in reality, I (still) had no idea what I was doing. Who knows what kind of advice I gave them! I was worse off in a sense, having a baby that never napped and a toddler that slept, however woke up rearing to go. The group met weekly (and sometimes twice/week to share advice or just support one another). I know that this group of women helped shape the mother I am today and because of that, I truly hold these friendships so dear to me.

As life goes, many of us moved away and are now living far away from Tucson. Since we don’t see each other often, it was a great shock to me when Emily and her family planned a trip to France because it meant that I would have the chance to see them again.

Our meet-up went a bit like this:

We packed for our flight, just Annie and I.

Then, my knight in shining armour drove the whole family to Paris that evening. We got in pretty late, but we had a quick nightcap with Emily’s family and headed to bed.  (not before jumping on it first)frankfurt newborn photographerWe woke up and watched some french “Alvin and the Chipmunks”.frankfurt newborn photographerwiesbaden, Frankfurt newborn photographerwiesbaden, Frankfurt newborn photographerWe had crepes for breakfast with both families thanks to Geoff.wiesbaden, Frankfurt newborn photographerThen, we headed out for the subway.

P.S. For approximately 2 excruciatingly long weeks I thought I had lost all of my data from the past 18 months. That means, everything I’ve photographed since we moved to Germany. 600 Euros later, I am so incredibly thankful to find that all the images were recoverable. It has made me realise that I need to be better about sharing my images sooner and with all the people in them much earlier. It would have been so devastating to never have shared these with our dear friends from Tucson, Arizona. Thanks Emily and family for a brilliant weekend in Paris. I’ll never forget it. XO
