There is something about getting to photograph a stage you just left. After I got married, I loved photographing weddings and getting to relive those feelings as I watched others experience the joy. Lately, my heart gets so full from getting to watch other families growing and adjusting and surviving the day to day of bringing a new baby home. I’m always impressed by other moms and their ability to figure it out. It’s hard! I’ve transitioned to doing mostly families lately because it is something I connect with so personally. Having “just” lived through having my second baby and adjusting to all that entails, I’m so aware of how those tiny toes keep growing, but how you are, at times, just living day to day, barely able to see above the fog of fatigue. I want these families to remember how their babe’s little feet fit in the palms of their hands or how their toddler looked at their new sibling, or how the babe kept their arms up or down while they slept or fussed at having a diaper change. The transition to two kids is an adjustment for sure, but it is full of countless sweet moments that I know every mom wants to cement into her mind. Watching your first born fall in love with their first sibling is one of the most heart melting experiences I’ve ever been through. Getting to witness other families walking this path brings back so many fresh memories that warm my heart. I love hearing how the family is doing and watching them rock it! Families are incredible; Moms, Dads, sibling bonds…they are all a joy to watch.
I loved getting to capture this sweet and beautiful family and the moments they shared while I was with them. I felt so privileged to capture the “behind the scenes” of what life looks like for them. Watching these brothers love each other made my heart swell. Please note the guitar serenade that happens in the middle of this session. I’m excited to share a look at some moments highlighted below. I hope the photos bring a smile to your face like they did to mine, the entire time I was editing. Meet Theo and his precious family.
