Mackenzie bought us crème brûlées, and more Indy adventures. | Central Indiana Life Photographer

“Friendship," said Christopher Robin, "is a very comforting thing to have."  - A.A. Milne

Sarah and Mackenzie were just here for a long weekend. A long weekend filled with late nights, city exploring, lens swapping, and catching up. When you live a hundred miles (and more) away from someone, you learn to appreciate the rare times when you can just be together; and share experiences face to face. I feel thankful, incredibly so, for these girls. That they love me enough to include me in their lives. Into their hearts, homes, and plans. That I even get to know them....and that story is pretty miraculous to me in itself.

♥, Sarah K.

Andrew is ten. | Central Indiana Child Photographer

Andrew, my littlest, most mischievous, surprisingly outgoing brother - is ten. How this happened I'll never know; but it's special and bittersweet to watch him grow. Out of his baby face. Out of his short clothes. Out of his toothless grin. Out of his signature flip hair-do. (Which we opted against for this photoshoot, and he said that we'd taken away his personality. Vain much? Ahaha.) I may have even had a few moments like this. But to see him grow into so many things; that's fun to watch. He's loving the things that I remember loving, books and movies, hobbies and interests.....I love sharing these things and watching him learn. And sometimes, I learn from him. Because as much as I hate to admit it, the kid can run circles around me in math.

He still voluntarily grabs my hand whenever we're out in public, and calls me "sissy" more than Sarah - I'm trying to hold onto these things while they're here.
A friend told me last week that Andrew "made her feel special" by the way he talked to her. Me too.

♥, Sarah K.
