“You feel like family,” my friends told me after I photographed the birth of their first child. The experience wasn’t without some complications that left me driving back and forth between the three of their separated family from our homes in Tahoe to both Reno and Carson City, but in the end, and many miles and sleepless nights later, everyone was able to return home together for some sleepless nights there, as nights are apt to be when you have a newborn.
I’m proud of my friends, who also feel like family to me, and their newest addition. They are already parenting like pros (or, at least, the type of parenting pros that I prefer). Their kid is pretty damn cute, but then again, I’m biased.
