It's going to be pretty interesting to see what life is like in 20 years. I am in the time of my life where so many friends are starting or growing their families. Our parents did not have social media to maintain contact with every single person from high school and beyond. Today, even if we don't hold long conversations or meet up with everyone we have added from high school or post-secondary, we scroll through their life on a daily basis. We are in a time where we literally are watching everyone's lives every single day, and probably maintain this network long enough to see each other's kids childhood and teenage years. I don't think we will ever be leaving Tsawwassen in this housing market, so I am constantly imagining how all these kids are going to grow up together in the tiny community of Ladner/Tsawwassen. How did I get to this?
Ah yes! Thinking about how long it has been since I have known Steve + Serena. I met Steve and Serena about a year or two before I had Moses which is a whopping 9 years ago. Over the past decade, they have been the ones watching me stumble through parenthood. They have seen me and my kids grow together, they have read my ups and downs, and they are hopefully a little more prepared than I was with what to truly expect when you are expecting. They spent the last couple of years travelling before hunkering down to start their family, and are now proud new parents to Baby Munroe.
As is always the case, I was thrilled to photograph them in these early days of parenthood and I am excited to follow them on their journey!
Congratulations! Welcome to the club!
