The Bailey family was my first family session of 2013 and they kicked it off with a bang! Nick and Elicia are close family friends of mine and I was so excited when Elicia contacted me for family photos. Nick and I have been neighbors since I was in first grade and we have been lucky enough to grow up with one another these last 15 years. When we were kids, my days with Nick were always filled with teasing, exploring, fighting, wrestling, sports, and doing our best to stay out of trouble. Nick has to be one of the most helpful people that I know. He is your regular handy man who will come and help you fix anything and everything without asking for anything in return. I have always admired his selfless heart because even with his full time job and growing family he still makes time to check in with his family and friends just to see if they need any help around the house. Elicia is Nick’s beautiful wife and I am so happy that he was able to find such a kind hearted woman to share his life with. Elicia is so much fun to be around and she is such a great mom to her son, Caleb and to her daughter, Sami. Sami is the newest member of the Bailey family and I enjoyed watching her dad, mom, and older brother gush all over her. They all love and adore her to pieces. I had a wonderful time photographing the Bailey’s and I can’t wait to capture many more memories to come! Congrats on your beautiful new daughter Nick and Elicia!
