I first met Jolene at our church youthgroup when I was 12 and she was 15. We have been best friends, and more like sisters, ever since then. We basically grew up together, and I’ve now been friends with her for more than half my life. What’s really cool is that we married men that we met at the same place… Campus Crusade for Christ at UC Riverside. Our kids are only months and weeks apart in age and not only are Jolene and I best friends, but our husbands are very close and our kids adore one another as well. We try to get together about once a week for dinner and if we miss a week, we miss each other. All that to say that friendships like that are rare, and a true blessing.
This was actually my first time photographing the Flores family in an official “photoshoot”. We went out to my favorite spring location and ran around in the tall green grass for a bit. The Flores is family is quite photogenic and I walked away with A LOT of great pictures of them. I really had a hard time choosing my favorites!
