Project 26 {week 9} Me and Mine | Danville CA Child and Family Photographer

I have started a project 26 this year with a group of incredibly talented woman – 13 to be exact- from across the United States.  This 26 week project will consist of two blog posts each month, one will be a “me & mine” post and the second will be a challenge or theme photo.  This time its “Me & Mine” time.

This image is important to me because not only does it have my immediate family but my oldest and dearest friend Cathey and her baby Zoe.  Growing up in a military family I never had the privilege of establishing long term friendships until I went to college.  Moving every 2-3 years kinda kills it for you.  I am always envious of people who can claim friendships that date back to preschool.  Facebook has been huge for people like me, helping us reconnect with lost friends from years past.  I am very grateful that I have been able to reconnect with so many people.  After all, who doesn’t need the occasional reminder of what a awkward dork you were in the past?

Back to Cathey.   There are friends you don’t see often but when you do you fall right back into step with them as if no time has passed.  With Cathey, we instantly fall back into our old habits and silly jokes like it was yesterday.  She is family to me…the sister I never had but always wanted.  She is amazing, kind, smart, talented, funny and beautiful.  When I look at this picture I see a family as it should be.  Cathey braiding Katie’s hair and Lindsay feeding baby Zoe.  A family taking care of family things together.  I have known Cathey for 25 years.   She has been a part of every major event in my life and I fully expect her to be there when I am turning 90.
This is a picture of us in Seal Beach, CA while we were away on spring break.
