Carla and Colter. One of my favorite couples on the planet. You guys, these two have WAY too much fun together. I think I was laughing so hard this session, that my cheeks hurt all the way home.
Carla is a good friend of mine from my first year of teaching. We were in the trenches of as first year teachers (It is no joke, y'all. That first year is tough!). We quickly became friends as we tried to problem solve all the world's problems together.. and by that I mean our student's problems. We spent probably the first hour to hour and a half after school together decompressing before spending another five to six hours getting ready for the next day before waving goodbye to one or the other at 8 or 9 at night.
Carla has been talking about babies since I first met her, so when she told me she was pregnant, you could see her doing her inner happy dance from the smile on her face. For all those who don't know her, just know she is going to be an AMAZING mother. It doesn't hurt that Colter is also an absolutely, out of this world, stand up kind of guy. I have already seen him in action as a very hands on dad. You can't beat that. Since this shoot earlier this summer, they have had a baby boy named Rowan and he is a total cutie (duh, look at his parents).
Unfortunately, these two have moved to Oregon for Colter's schooling. Luckily, I love Oregon so I am determined to get down there. I am going to seriously miss them. In the mean time, I am going to look at these photos to make myself feel better.
