One of the best parts of my full time job, is the people. I became fast friends with Lauren literally from the first moment we met. She was the director on one of my programs, so we spent a ton together making sure everything went smoothly. We both come from a retail background and decided personally it was time for a change for ourselves and our families. So that is how we ended up where we are now. Went spent a lot time over the past two years talking about everything from work, to family, to trips, to her house they were building. I got the honor of being one of the very first people at work to find out she was pregnant and I had to keep to that secret. It's tough too. I can't tell you how excited I was the day I got her gchat, asking me to shoot her maternity photos....AAHH!! I cried!! This was the first time I got to meet John her husband. We met up in downtown Annapolis,...on literally a cold spring evening...I mean cold and windy....like heavy coat cold. But we had a blast!! Such an honor to capture this special time for my awesome friend!!
