I had the honor of doing an infant photo session inside a beautiful family's home. These photos tell a story. They are a photographic journey into the day of a family who just gave birth to a beautiful 10 pound 11 ounce wonder of a girl! Her eyes are so discerning even at 2 weeks old. They seem to peer into your soul. You just want to curl up and have a long conversation with this little one about all the wonders of heaven! She joins an incredible pair of siblings. One incredible 5 1/2 year old sister whose mothering skills are at equal measure with her ability to dance at one moment in her tutu and then go make a glass of homemade of lemonade and serve it in a wine glass! 18 month old brother has a contagious laugh and smile. His energy and vibrant spirit seemed to fill the room with joy. The beauty of these little ones surrounded two incredibly gentle parents who are just trying to take it all in. Their lives have changed with this newest addition, but it was like she had always been a part of their family. The love in their home just expanded a bit more.
These photo sessions are filled with so much hope and wonder. What an honor it is to see the simple beauty of cuddling on the couch, preparing a bottle, dancing in sunlight, or even a diaper change. These are the moments I try to capture. These are the moments which are so quickly passed by in our day-to-day lives, yet, they hold incredible value. They are moments of nurturing and growth, of creativity and laughter, and most of all, love.
