I’ve known Lucas since I was 15. Almost 10 years… which is totally crazy to me. Seriously, where does time go?! Anyway, we were good friends during high school and he and his family will always have a special place in my heart. Since highschool, we haven’t really talked much as he moved out of state, met an incredibly beautiful girl, fell in love, got married and had a baby. :-) Well, this weekend I got the pleasure of meeting not only his gorgeous wife Erin, but also their darling boy Ryder. I was SO blessed to take some photographs of them. They were visiting from Virginia for Ryder’s first birthday, so family portraits needed to happen. :-)
I have so many things I want to say about this amazing family but I’ll try to make it slightly short. Hehe. Lucas and Erin are beyond perfect for each other. They completely fit in a way that you don’t often see. She is so soft, and kind. Not to mention beautiful, and seriously she had a smile that will FORCE you to smile. Which is good, cause Lucas is a sassy butt. ;-) Kidding, Lucas. Haha. In all seriousness, Lucas is a great guy and you can just see the love he has for his family. It’s just so sweet. There is so much love and joy and it just radiates off of them. I know that sounds cheesy, but it’s completely how it is in person. They just have this way about them, and I am always so blessed to see people love each other so dearly. Oh, and Ryder is adorable. Like… SO cute. He totally loves to snuggle on his mom and it full on melts me.
Thank you Lucas, Erin and Ryder for allowing me to document some special moments for you guys! :-)
Total side note, but if you are ever looking for a great graphic artist Lucas is your guy! http://www.facebook.com/designmarie Check his stuff out! He’s super great and way awesome to work with!
Okay, now for the photos!
Miss Erin, you are just lovely.
Ryder, I want to smoosh you.
I love how excited Ryder gets when his momma gives him a smooch!
Jumping photos always make me giggle. :-)
No more photos, please!
Seriously, how cute are they?
Lucas brought this awesome old camera. Not gonna lie… I full on thought about stealing it. ;-) Well, maybe not stealing… more like “borrowing”
Erin, you are absolutely gorgeous.
Thanks again, guys!
