I’m an uncle. It’s amazing to see my brother become a father, and my sister-in-law become a mother. The love they have for this new little guy is a beautiful thing to witness. I was privileged enough to spend a long weekend with this small family in South Philly and took advantage of my time to capture these fleeting moments of Otto’s infant days. I can’t wait to watch him grow and continue to see my brother and sister develop as parents. Love this little guy!
The joy between these two is just too great! Ryan was one of the first people I met at college and the actual first friend I made in Lansing. Even though I lived across campus, I would almost always be hanging out on his side; randomly crashing his dorm room and catching his jazz combos (A226!). It’s been great to know each other, live together, work together, play music together, and grow as individuals and as friends over the past six years. And Jill – what a lovely person! I first knew her just as that super-talented artist that I would occasionally see in the art building and with whom I had a few mutual friends. I can say one thing with certainty: the up and coming Freitas household will be packed with a whole lot of artistic ability!
I couldn’t be happier for Jill and Ryan and their choice to join their lives together. I’m pumped to see how they grow together and continue to build each other up. Thanks for being such great friends you two!
