Today’s blog post takes you to Des Moines! For those of you who might not know, I went to college in Des Moines (s/o to Drake) and also lived there after graduate school for 3 years. I love and miss all my friends dearly, so I always love getting to go back and visit! This visit was a little extra special.
Megan, a good friend and sorority sister of mine, asked if I would be able to take some in-home, family photos for her son, Noah’s, first birthday. It just so happened that I would be passing through Des Moines on his exact birthday, so it worked out perfect in truly capturing him turning the big O-N-E. When I got to their house, Megan and Buddy’s two labs greeted me with some puppy love and got a little too excited waking sweet Noah up from his nap, a little freaked out. Noah is just too stinking cute that even with red eyes I couldn’t help but snap photos. It made my heart so happy seeing a friend be the best version of herself as a mom. The three of them read books, played with blocks, and being there to capture this milestone was truly an honor!
