the past few months have produced some of my favorite family sessions of my career. the initial inquiries are detailed and each unique in their own story but can be summarized as folks just wanting to remember their particular stage of life. and i get so excited because this is exactly why I do what I do. to document moments and create visuals for the memories you already hold so dear. to offer fresh eyes and grace in the midst of a busy or trying or exciting season. take allison+peter with their sweet little Viv, saying goodbye to their home in l.a. for a new adventure out east. most people gearing up for a cross country move and 18 weeks pregnant wouldn't think about adding "photo session" to their to-do list but they wanted to document this home, this time before three become four, and the obvious love that will followthem wherever they go. thank you for sharing this time with me, friends. xo
These two adorable girls are proud, new big sisters to baby brother Jackson and helped me welcome in this fabulous fall weather. Emma and Elizabeth had me cracking up the entire session as they grunted and lifted pumpkins, talking about the faces they would soon carve and their exciting Halloween costumes. Elizabeth might be one of the most expressive little girls I've ever met -- she'd say "I'm mad" and scrunch up her face, but then explode in giggles. The girls did such a good job as we played around their beautiful house. I love doing family portrait sessions in/around the family's home - it adds a personal touch to the photos and makes the little ones extra comfortable. Thank you guys for inviting me to spend the morning with your wonderful family, and Happy Autumn!
