Angela is one of the coolest women on the planet. Three days before she gave birth, we were at the park and she was doing pushups.
We go way back. Our husbands were roommates in college. My husband set the two of them up on their first date. We ended up in Moab a few years after them. We have kids the exact same ages (until now!!). We both have a craving for adventure/physically exhausting fun. A few of my favorites include riding the White Rim in day, summiting the Grand Teton in a day, and backpacking the Grand Canyon (in 2 days). We are pros at cramming in as much fun as possible into short increments of time. We know the exact amount of time it takes to mountain bike or trail run a large majoirty of the trails around here, making it possible to squeeze in adventure during preschool or before work.
Angela is also a fantastic photographer. Check her out at Angela Hays Photography.
Anyway- lets get to the point. Two weeks ago, Angela had a baby in the middle of the night. Eight hours later, I drove to the hospital to film this beautiful bundle of joy and to capture three sisters meeting little Ms. Bridgette for the first time.
I cried at least 3 times in that hospital room, and then multiple times again as I edited.
There is nothing like the love and joy a newborn brings to a family.
