The old saying goes, “friends are family too” could not have been more true than on a Sunday afternoon in Old Worthington. I was asked to do a photo shoot to capture the love and friendship between the 3 families as they all are about to begin big new adventures. New jobs, new cities, new careers, lots of new things. They have all been friends forever so even though it was bittersweet occasion, nothing but sweetness came from this photo session! Here are the photos from our park and play photo shoot! Yes, play = ice cream!
It is no easy task finding what I call “flat tire friends.” You know, the friend who you ACTUALLY call if you got a flat tire at an inconvenient place and at an inconvenient time. Yes, those people. Some say if you have just one of those friends you are among the luckiest people on earth. These friends have it. The history, the future, the we will be great friends no matter time zone, latitude, or longitude coordinates we live in.
So, needless to say, it was an honor to capture some great photos and help make new memories as these friends get ready to make their next big moves. The kids were simply adorable. Full of energy and spunk, and hopes of getting only the most gigantic chocolate chips in their Graeter’s ice cream ever. The simple equation of kids +sticky fingers + sloppy ice cream cones = photo magic in the summertime.
If this doesn’t serve as a reminder to get off the computer and call your bestie I don’t know what will! #FriendsAreFamilyToo
Lesson of the day: Don’t waste your ice cream, your big brother wants you to do it like him!….
