Three years ago I drove to Paragould, Arkansas to meet my best friend for the FIRST time! The first time you guys. We met through my husband, Dakota. Shyla and I texted everyday, and I seriously mean EVERYDAY! Well, three years ago Shyla found out she was pregnant!! Pregnant with miss Maycie Kay! We did a photoshoot announcing her pregnancy, and here we are three years later doing a family session while she is pregnant with baby #2! Two October babies, but hey, Maycie is going to be a BIG SISTER!
Shyla and Damian have been together since 2012, they got married on their anniversary in 2018! This year they celebrated their first anniversary. These two met with some friends and the rest was history (sorry that was cliché) but it is true, they have been together ever since. They are both originally from California, thankfully they live in Arkansas now which means they are SO much closer to Dakota and I.
This weekend was the first weekend they came up to Fayetteville, usually I will travel down to Paragould and visit these guys, so it was so nice to have theme here at our home this time! Saturday was beautiful outside (besides the crazy winds that almost blew us away) Sunday was a bit of a change. We got cloudy skies and colder temperatures, but we managed to sneak in a cute photoshoot before these guys left town.
Maycie wasn’t a fan of the cold, she kept saying “I’m cold, I’m cold!” and would run to daddy for his jacket (as you can see from the photos!) Her dress was super cute though, don’t you think?! Don’t let the cute hair fool you, it was a bit of a struggle getting to that point! Oh and the mommy and me photos? Dakota may have given Maycie a quarter to get her to take those ones, whatever works, right?
We had a great weekend with The Kovalsky Family, we can’t wait to see them again!! Congratulations on the new addition to the family, Dakota and I are so excited for you guys! We love you!!
