The Valdez Family | Mesa, Arizona Family Photographer

In my home town there are two junior highs, I went to one and Emma went to the other. Our paths crossed our freshman year when we both tried out for the tennis team. We quickly became friends as our mutual lack of tennis skills lead us to being doubles partners! We didn't get much playing time, and we usually spent practice goofing off! After freshman year Emma's family moved to Arizona where she met Javier. They met in a weights class, Javier told me Emma fell for him after seeing him bench ;).  They were married last April, and have a sweet little boy named Elias. It was so fun to get to catch up with Emma and meet her family!
