These two have been best friends and a “couple” since birth. Their first two years of life, they lived a few doors down from each other, and basically between Trey’s Mommy (One of my very best friends- Antoinette- Owner of Not Too Shabby Lady) and me, we conformed into some type of communal living, persay, especially because both our husbands had weird late hours at that time, so it was always just us and the two kids. I would always be at her house or vice versa. Baths, dinner, evening walks, we did it all together. Okay, Antoinette would do all the cooking, and I would do all the picture taking 😉 They grew up together every.single.day. Maren took her very first step in Trey’s bedroom after a bath there one evening. I’ll never forget. They have this connection that is inseparable. When these two are together, it truly is like nothing else exists to them in the world. <3 Now they are 4 1/2, and since 2011, we moved 30 minutes south, so we are not quite the spoiled neighbors we used to be. The school year has kept us apart a lot this year due to after school activities, and school schedules, etc, although we always manage to get these two together. Im super excited about summer, because just as last summer, we basically spent every day with the Rourke family. This week, I think I spent everyday at their house! It’s a home to me, as they are family to us, and always will be. Now, Antoinette and myself, both have our seconds who are ironically both boys, around the same age (two and almost two), and these two stinkers are pretty funny together too!
I shot this session with Sandra Bianco Photography a couple weeks ago, and just had the chance yesterday to dive into these and edit them! Can you believe I almost forgot about these?!!?!
