I've known Danielle since the 4th grade. We are two Southern California girls who found ourselves moving to and settling down in the Bay Area. Down south, we went to different high schools and actually lost touch for a bit. Then one day, we bumped into each other in the hallway of our dormitory (we coincidentally lived in the same building!) during the first weeks of college. Since then it's been great catching up with her. I was more than honored when she asked me to take her family portraits and capture her son at this adorable, smiley, but not quite mobile age.
