There are times in your life when you can feel like it is the first day of school all over again.  “Will they like me?  Will I know anyone?  Do I look as nervous as I feel?”  I had one of those moments when we signed our kiddos up for soccer last fall.  I showed up to the field where there were about 50 kids and sadly I did not know one parent.  And there I was alone in a sea of parents…until a cute blonde sitting close by introduced herself.  And from there on, three practices a week I had a friendly face to look forward to seeing and the practices & games (all three of them a week!) flew by.  So, meet one of the sweetest people I have ever met, Staci, along with her husband Ben and adorable little kiddos.  And if Ben looks familiar, it’s probably because I photographed his brother’s family a few months ago (check out their cute fam here.)

Ben & Staci thanks so much for going with the flow and being so fun and easy to photograph!  Your kids are so hilarious, I totally enjoyed them.  And Staci, I’m so grateful to have you as a friend!


The photo below is on my top five pics of all time.  I don’t even know what they were giggling about, but it became contagious until all of us adults were joining in too!  I so love these ages!  A lot of photographers give titles to their photos, and I think I would title this one “follow your joy.”  Cheesy?  Maybe, but whatever.  I took the photo, so I decide, right?  :)  I feel joy when I look at this…leskeblog-9
