being a military family, we have the fortunate opportunity to make friends everywhere we go…and on the contrary, the unfortunate realization that we will ultimately move away. i’ve been reminded of many of my san diego friends over the last week as i’ve been archiving files on my overloaded hard drives–and preparing friends and family galleries for them to retrieve photos taken over the last year. these are some of my recent faves of our good friends joel and stephanie. young, beautiful and with hearts of gold, there’s nothing not to love about this family. these were taken when steph was pregnant with her second daughter, haven, and at her newborn session.
