it’s really really fun to photograph someone i’ve known for a long time. karen and i go back to the awkward middle school years, where neither of us can quite remember how we met, but we were friends through high school. we lost touch during the college and post-college years, but thanks to facebook have gotten reacquainted! she married keith 6 years ago sunday, when we met at the malibu pier to do their maternity session. they are expecting a little boy in august, whose name is chosen but they are keeping for a surprise, so they have taken to calling him ziggy the zygote, which is my favorite temporary baby name ever! it’s extra special for me to photograph friends, knowing they trust me to capture their special moments really warms my heart. keith and karen, i had so much fun with you two (three!) yesterday. i’m so excited to join you for your baby shower and meet baby boy in august!!!
here are my favorites from our session:
