"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life..." -Henry David Thoreau, WALDEN
“The soul is healed by being with children.” - Fyodor Dostoyevsky
A little child enters your life and fills a special place in your heart.
A place you never knew was empty.
Another 3 months have passed and Miss R is really mobile and exploring her world - Her older brother Mr L is growing up so fast too - "Hi Miss Amy", "Cheese", "Boats" -
We broke up their 9th month session by shooting on location as well as more lifestyle coverage at home - These fleeting moments are just so precious!
"Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero." ~Marc Brown
Mr. C now has a baby sister and wow does she dig him! His smiles and silliness makes her giggle and chatter back at him in such a sweet way. Darling Miss C (yes, they both are C's!) truly adores her big brother!
I have been photographing this family for the last three years and being able to watch their family grow has been such a privilege. Time certainly goes fast, everyone tells you that. Documenting their milestones and the simple joys of life, like riding the swing at the park, is something that I do not take for granted. Each time a session like this ends, I just smile!
"When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses." ~Joyce Brothers
After many years of photographing this family, their oldest will be off to college later this summer. We have had many great sessions full of laughter and smiles. It is so exciting to see kids I have gotten to know grow up to be great teens and now adults with so much ahead of them. Wishing Mr. S the best at college and Miss G continued success in High School!
A lovely evening reception was just that for Tracy and Tom as they celebrated their vows. Attended by so many family and friends, the guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the new couple beamed.
Beautiful flowers and lovely lighting at Cafe La Cave
