Baby Rowen is a very lucky girl. She has the good fortune to have amazing parents who I am fortunate to call my friends. I’ve looked up to Ayrielle ever since we were in Junior High algebra together. She has always been a constant in my life regardless of distance between us and distance between phone calls. She is a friend I do not have to talk to every day to still feel close to and be able to confide everything in. I’ve been a better person for knowing her and can only imagine the amazing little girl she will raise. It doesn’t hurt that she has found an amazing partner and husband, Demian. Demian is such a warm and open person; the type of guy who will walk into a room of people he doesn’t know, in a language that is not his first, and delve right into a game of serious game of Taboo
I was over the moon when Ayrielle told me they were expecting so when the time came, I couldn’t bear the thought of NOT meeting Rowen right away. The first chance I had, I drove down to Oceanside for a few hours to meet her and document her tininess. I adore this family beyond words. Simple. As. That.
