Can I start by saying that I just love this family? I only became friends with this mama recently, but let me tell you what I know to be true about her. She cares. Deeply. I see someone that wants to excel as a mother, as a wife, as a friend. And while mommy guilt is an affliction that we are all plagued with, she’s got this! We chat almost daily and neither of us are perfect, but friends, she is present. She is present with her daughters in a way that I aspire to be present for my sons. These girls know that they are loved. I also got to know her husband a little bit on this shoot, and he is good people, too. From the first jokes in the parking lot I knew we were going to get alone just fine. He loves on his family, and loves on them well. It was truly a privilege to document and capture them all together last weekend <3.
