oh man do we love these three. kait and i grew up just miles from each other in the same small town of east tennessee but had never met until our husband's respective creative pursuits brought us to sunny l.a. and what a special milestone to witness, the birth of a first baby, the beginning of a family. we couldn't be more in love with little lewis wolfgang (bangarang name, right?!), and can't wait to watch this little los angeles native grow. also, how stunning is kait especially in those black and white film images? what a classic beauty. thanks for sharing life with us, you three. xo
you know when you meet a baby that keeps getting better and better with age which is hard to believe because they started out so great already? this little munchkin can flash the most contagious full-face smile and all your worries go away. 6-7months is hands down my favorite age to photograph. smiley, snuggly and oh so squishy. and i can't even get started about the light in this bedroom or the way those stripes look on that ilford 400 film. it's been so fun to watch this mama come into her own. she sure is good at lovin' that baby.
Last month our little family had the privilege of exploring L.A. with our good friends and fellow creatives of Ginger & Birch. Our trip included so much yummy food, lots of sunshine and even a trip to the Painstakingly Made Pop-up Shop hosted by Geronimo Balloons! I'm anxiously awaiting the return of my 35mm from Richard's Photo Lab (also in L.A.!), but until it arrives, here is a little Instagram sneak-peek of #ruthiesbigadventure. xo
