tara and i met in 6th grade. with both of us having last names at the beginning of the alphabet, we were sat next to each other for every class we had together (which was 4 out of 6 classes!)
we quickly became great friends, with sleep overs, movies and even a trip to disneyland (this was huge since we were living in san jose still)
sadly, we lost contact after jr high, but thanks to facebook, we reunited just after she had gotten married.
last month, tara and her husband troy welcomed their first daughter, haley, into the world.
it was fun getting to see tara, her mom and dad, and her new baby girl for an afternoon! walking into her parents house almost made me feel like i was 11 again! all i needed was my NKOTB sleeping bag and a scrunchi in my hair!
thank you tara, troy and haley, for giving me the pleasure of capturing your first family photos! i can't wait to see you grow!
