Where to begin with these 3.... 3 of my favourite people in this life!
I met Amanda at a salon we both worked at almost 5 years ago and instantly fell in love with her bubbly and positive personality. Her smile lights up a room. Her faith is admirable and she is an uber talented hairstylist, if I do say so myself! :)
Her family grew from 2 to 3 when her and her husband Josh welcomed their son Zaydon into the world 2 1/2 years ago. This kid STOLE my heart!
I attended Z's 1st birthday and decided to get him a soft, plush, cuddly stuffed Monkey (I like to get things for people that I myself would enjoy, haha) Little did I realize then, that this Monkey would become his favorite toy! (See images below for said Monkey!) So much so that his mom and dad had to buy a second one in order to swap them out, every now and then!
I was super excited when Amanda suggested a coffee shop/urban/lifestyle shoot with the boys. And after having to reschedule several times due to weather.... We finally made it happen late September! We hit up two locations; Alforno Bakery and Cafe in Eau Claire and my favorite; The Simmons Building in East Village. They were the perfect compliment to their style.
I loved this shoot and I love this family. And, I am blessed to call them my friends. :)
