I present to you all, The Hoffmann Family. I'm not even sure where to start to share with you all about this wonderful family. It's a funny story actually.
I remember exactly a year ago, that Kevin, Emeri and I were shopping at the cheese section in Walmart and we came across Taryn and Maven. Our little babies were the struck of a conversation and they were so little back then! It just hit off! We made some small talks and since I didn't have any mommy friends yet at the time, I asked for Taryn's phone number. That following next week, we all met at Chuy's (BEST MEXICAN FOOD EVER!) and did proper introductions and got to know one another!
I didn't think that Taryn, Mark and Maven would become such a great impact on my little family. We've had numerous play dates and family dates. It's always refreshing when we all got together because having the company of another family with a toddler was nice. My family is far from me, along with my niece and nephew, whereas Kevin's side of the family doesn't have any other children near Emeri's age to play with. Maven is only 6 months older than Emeri, and so we all got to watch them grow together. They're still getting used to playing with one another (haha) but it's still pretty awesome!
When Taryn told me that they would like to have a family session and include Isaiah, who they've been fostering since the end of last year, I was more than happy to gift them this session. Seeing how this experience has made them and their family stronger was uplifting. It takes a great responsibility and selfless heart to take someone in and provide for them. Isaiah is just the sweetest teenage boy that is musically talented. I know that he will go far, as long as he doesn't stop chasing his dreams. It's cliche to say but it's so true. Never stop chasing your dreams!
Our session was so much fun and we had the most gorgeous light after a couple weeks of thunderstorms! It couldn't have been more perfect.
I'm so blessed to have met this family and proudly call them our friends! I hope that these memories captured will forever be in their heart no matter where this road takes them. We love you guys! <3
