My friend, Kristy, along with Ben, was the one who totally validated and pushed me towards opening up my own photography business three years ago. She's been a constant help to me and her amazing graphic design has definitely enriched my "look". She went through a ton of back and forth with me before I settled on my new logo earlier this year and went through my website with a fine tooth comb. Even more than I appreciate the generosity of how she shares her skills and knowledge, is how much I admire her as a mom. I love the value that she puts in her family. She cares for her guys so very much and supports them with her words and with the heart that she has for them. She's been a real example to me of helping sons develop a really close friendship and love for each other.

We met up the other night at Des Moines Marina. It was super bright so we found some little spots where we could get some fun shots of their family. She's great at slapstick humor which gets her boys to laugh and may even have given her husband a little slap on the bottom to get a laugh out of him too :).
