I have know Michelle for (gulp) 20 years! Michelle is the kind of friend that is there for you, no matter what - and that isn't just lip service. She literally has shown up for me at my absolute toughest moments. Always ready to help in whatever way she possibly can. We've been through it all, seen each other at our best and at our absolute worst and loved each other regardless. Michelle moved to New York 10 years ago and even as I said goodbye to her at her going away party I fully expected her to come back within 6 months.
Years passed, I visited her in New York and got to know her life (and her love). Michelle got married and had 2 beautiful kids. I got married and was blessed with kids of my own. Then one day; "We are moving to Scottsdale!" and just like that she was back and it was as if no time had passed at all.
So this photo session was special beyond words. Getting to photograph one of my dearest friends with her beautiful family. What could possibly be sweeter.
