This was such a cute day with my four year old and his BFF. Honestly, I've been trying to get to this for so long and am so glad I had a chance to do it!
Brock started at his old daycare when he was six weeks old and Lily was one of the other kiddos. When they were about 2 1/2 or three, Brock would tell anyone that would listen that Lily is his best friend. If you asked Brock "Who is your best friend?" Lily would watch him closely as if she was making sure he was going to say her name. It was so adorable.
They're still best friends even though they go to different preschools now. We get to go do fun things together when we have time and they are most definitely at each other's birthday parties. My husband and I are lucky that Lily's parents are fun too. haha
For their little day out, we dressed them like "grown ups" then took them to various cool places in Kansas City. The Plaza, a museum and probably their favorite spot... the super cute Donutology shop where you get to pick your toppings. They also had to have a cold, glass bottle of local Shatto Milk. Just like your local grocery store, Donutology also buys those bottles back right after you drink them. I love that.
If your toddler through teen has a "bestie" or even if you're a grown up with a "bestie", consider booking a session to have a cool memory of your friendship. I remember when I was in Jr High and High School, best friends would go to a portrait studio to get professional portraits together. I love seeing them pop up on Facebook now in a good throw back Thursday post. It brings back memories of how inseparable we were with people that may be a thousand or more miles away now. Think of this as the next level. This little fun day/session has sparked a lot of fun ideas that I would love to try! Call or message if you want to discuss some options.
I've still got some fall space open and am teaching a Newborn Safety Workshop next month. You may read all about that by clicking HERE. This will be a very busy but very fun fall. I can't wait to see your family in front of my camera!
