Camille is Neve’s BFF. They were born two days apart, and have been inseparable ever since. A couple of months ago, I had the pleasure of capturing Camille’s portraits to commemorate her first birthday. She brought along her parents, Melina & Joe, some of my BFFs, and we basically had a crazy fun baby party.
I haven’t had a chance to blog much lately thanks to the (wonderful) craziness of life with a baby, but I wanted to get this post up before Camille turns 18.
But in all seriousness, I did wanted to post the photos before Camille, Melina, & Joe leave for Japan. They move in 2 weeks.
Two short weeks left with some of our best friends. I’ve known about their move for several months, but it’s only becoming real now. Having and raising a baby is an experience you can describe until you are blue in the face, but it’s just something you don’t get it until you experience it yourself. I cannot tell you how much of a difference it has made to have a close friend as a fellow mom, experiencing the same daily joys, struggles, and magical weirdness of life with a human being you are responsible for keeping alive and happy. We’ve spent Camille’s & Neve’s first 15 months of life side by side. We love each others’ babies as if they are our own. It’s going to be a completely different experience of raising Neve without Camille by her side, and without Melina in my daily life.
Melina, I love you so much. I’m going to miss you so much. Thank you for being my friend and for bringing Camille into our lives. I’m so glad we did this baby thing together.
