I heard about this young woman, Savannah, before she was even born…and evidently I knew her mom, Jessie, before I was born! Jessie and my mom were both pregnant at the same time and new to Colorado as their husbands were to be playing for the Denver Broncos in the fall of 1977. Long short, Jessie and I spent our early years together but after a few moves and life changes, we didn’t see one another until we were in our late twenties. That’s when destiny brought us back together and I heard Savannah was on her way!
I’ve been blessed to watch Savannah grow up (and get taller too) over the last twelve years and be a part of Jessie’s heart expanding even more as her daughter gets older. They met me in north Parker on a strip of the Cherry Creek Trail and we strolled around finding soft sun and yellow flowers. I enjoyed the mother-daughter moments through the lens and also taking Savannah’s hand down into the flower beds for some off-trail adventures. She did great and we managed to get a good number of giggles out of the almost-teenager.
Sweet Sunday afternoon at the clubhouse with the Socol Family. The flowers were in full bloom and matched perfectly. Each year the girls wear their sparkling ballerina gowns and bare feet for family pictures. I was looking back and found the first time we met – four years ago. The girls have kept their sweet smiles and precious hearts. I included a couple photos from our first session….
We all met up at the Jimmy Carter Center looking for some flowers and a good time. We got combos of all the girls, the fellas, mom and dad pics and we found flowers! The light was sweet and the kids found a ton of fun spots around the center. Thank you Ault family!
