Joelle, Sam and baby Dorian

Joelle is a friend of some friends. Before this shoot I hadn't seen her in a long time (like, before there was a baby or a husband long)! It's not like I ever knew her that well, but it's still so fun to see how people's lives and identity changes as the people in their life change. The last time I saw her I'm sure we were mingling at some dinner party eating fancy cheeses and chocolates, and this time she was crawling around on the floor chasing a lil' babe, and I was chasing her.

At the same time, it's good to know some things stay the same. Joelle and Sam and both musicians; they told me how they actually came back to her apartment and played music together on their first date. And now, they still play music together, but with the accompaniment of some chubby little one-year-old hands attempting the bass line along side them.  

It was so great to hang out with these three on a Saturday afternoon- we crawled up and down the hallway, had some dinner, broke into a few little jam sessions, went for a walk around their colorful block, came back, and got ready for bed. And I can testify that I overheard them telling Dorian they love him at least 100 times in the span of those few hours.

Grace Family

Being completely honest, half of my excitement for doing this shoot of the adorable Grace family was because it meant I would get to see inside their house! I have an obsession with seeing the insides of houses in general (Sometimes I make Shawn drive around a block twice because we passed a house with their curtains open and I want to get a better look at the hutch in their living room). But I have a specific obsession with seeing the inside of this house. We walk by the Grace family's house several times a day on our way to and from the co-op we both go to, and we've briefly been inside the front room a few times for a quick play, and every single time I swoon. Getting to see the rest of it was a fantasy fulfilled!

It's the cutest little beach bungalow ever!

And I'm trying to figure out a way for them to want to give it to me.

And the other half of my excitement for doing this shoot of the adorable Grace family was because- they are the adorable Grace family! These guys are so lovely, and down-to-earth, and adorable. I had an editing crisis trying to do this blog post because I loved too many of them! They were just so lovely, and down-to-earth, and adorable in practically every picture I took of them. So, apologies for this rather lengthy post.
