From the day I met Jo, back in Redondo Beach, we just hit it off. We were neighbors at a special time when a few of us mom’s gathered on the daily to play with our little ones at each others homes. It was heaven. Six am knocks at the door to come play and make salt dough. And of course, our now famous (among us) Butterfly Bon Voyage Party, where we all colored a big butterfly on the wall and took turns having our photo taken there. And of course there was glitter;)
For a little while, we were all family. A family of friends. It really was a magical time. With all of our young children at that magical stage of pure discovery. Slowly life changes and we all one by one moved away and moved on. But we still keep in touch.
So, I was so thrilled when Jo called for me to photograph their family again. This time on a far larger scale. They had a new addition to the family, little Mallory. A destination family reunion with a 50th anniversary thrown in for good measure!
Jo, you have a truly warm and welcoming family. Thank you for making us a part of the adventure!
