Watching families grow is my biggest blessing from this ‘Job’. I use that word lightly, as I have such a soft spot for the families that I am honored to photograph. They let me into their life, their homes to capture some of the most fundamental moments of their lives. I will forever be thankful that I get to meet such amazing women, men, children and families!
This is no different for this family, who has over time become one of my closest friends! Watching her in the first hours with her second girl filled my heart with so much joy for her and her family! Tara invited me to photograph them at the hospital shortly after their second daughter was born. We captured her soft skin, tiny hairs on her body and those first coos for mom. It was a busy day with hearing tests and check ups, but it’s all part of this journey and Tara wanted to capture all of it.
We had a few moments with just mommy and baby and shortly after daddy came by with big sister! I knew before her sister came that she was going to be an amazing big sister! She was kind, soft and soooo excited to meet her!
