It was such a wonderful experience to work with this family to build their photoshoot! We met way back in November to plan out our 2 part session- the first part took place in this family’s house and the second out in the snow! Mom and Dad wanted to capture their little loves in their home environment, in their pj’s playing and interacting together. They also wanted to capture some photos out in the snow since the kids LOVE playing outside with Mom and Dad. Scroll to the bottom to read a beautiful letter written about the kids by their parents.
Of course our session manager was on hand during the shoot to make sure everything went smoothly and was consistent with the plan! The goal is to help everyone to relax and have FUN
Here is a letter Mom and Dad wrote for their session….
Suzie was born in the winter and it was this bewildering, wonderful rush. We weren’t ready for any of it, not taking her home, not the awesome responsibility, not for how much she would completely change our lives. Some of it has gone by so quickly and so pictures have become this invaluable part of the process since we get to look back and see these tiny slices of our lives. The photos keep so many memories fresh, even for her. Suzie has always loved going through the pages of her photo books, pointing to everyone, and now naming them and describing the place they were taken.
Owen always seemed so small in contrast to his sister. His cries, his smiles, his arms around your neck were all remarkable because of how much younger he was than his sister. And yet now they are almost the same size. We were so prepared to love both of them, but neither of us had expected how much they were going to love eachother, how inseparable they would become. We love that we’ve been able to capture all of this, especially in the winter when they absolutely love to be outside, in the snow, singing refrains from Frozen.
