Kyle and Kristine are the kind of couple who you become close friends with in college and even after years of not seeing each other, it seems just like old times when we're together! Kristine was one of my college roommates and closest friends-- one of those few friends you find in a lifetime that is so genuine and compassionate.
A few months ago, one of Kristine's friends contacted me about the idea of surprising Kristine with a Lifestyle Session in celebration of a special milestone happening in their family...beginning their adoption journey! I was looking forward to this surprise for months...and it definitely was a surprise! Kyle planned to meet us at one of our favorite coffee shops here in Manheim, where we'd be waiting to surprise Kristine with not only our visit (after several years of not seeing each other!), but also that we'd be following them back to their new house to do a Lifestyle Session to document the start of their family. I feel like surprises are hard to pull off, but we did it! It was such a sweet reunion and wonderful time to catch up on life.
I've said this MANY times before, but truly the greatest joy of being a photographer the past year has been the chance to bless friends, family, and others with documenting momentous occasions where they have photos to remember these special times. Kyle and Kristine, thank you so much for letting me capture these pictures for you as you start your little family! We are thankful for your friendship and are so excited for this new adventure you're headed on! Here's a peek at some highlights from their Lifestyle Session!
