Baby Peter proved to live up to his namesake during his first photo session. He was determined, strong and unfazed by his older “sister”, Lucy. Nicole & Trent are first time parents, just shy of their first wedding anniversary. They have so much to be thankful for! 

Marriage isn’t always roses and butterfly kisses. While it definitely has it’s perks, we all go through phases where it’s just tough for awhile. I think most married couples will agree, the 7th year is the hardest. You’ve been married for awhile now, so you think you should just hit your stride, but then kids come along, or jobs change, or you move and all of a sudden, it’s just tough.

A few weeks ago, I spent the weekend with the Rosas family at their new home in Scottsdale, AZ. It’s beautiful and we had the best time. As Jennifer and I chatted, she shared that this was their 7th year of marriage. They have a 3 yr old and a brand new 1 yr old, have both changed jobs, and have moved across the country. Wow! Undergoing so much in such a short period of time can be unnerving, and I’m sure they’ve had their moments, which makes looking at their photos even more precious to me. The friendship they share and the love they have for each other is beautiful, and I think it shows from the inside out.

Happy Anniversary, Jennifer & Gary! Here’s to a Great 8th Year!
