This tight knit crew was so much fun to photograph; filled with warmth, love and laughter. My friend who belongs to this family is a one of a kind, shirt off her back friend. She fed my family many times while my Jack was in the NICU and then home. She brought me Starbucks, she taught me how to massage his bloated belly, she checked in. She continues to support me in every way possible and I’m lucky to have her as a friend. I’d give her the shirt off my back too.

This family she married into is just the same. They make anyone who comes into contact with them, one of their own. You meet them and bam you’re invited to dinner at their house.

Kindness matters. Love and acceptance matter. We need more of these types. Love you guys <3
