Oh, where to begin with this family….sweet, funny, busy, utterly adorable….and one of my favorite to photograph! Three years ago now, I received a somewhat urgent email from this mom, hoping that I had availability right before a busy holiday weekend. Thankfully, I was able to fit them in and capture precious newborn Emily….which is where it all began.
Three years later, I’m thinking back on how I’ve been lucky enough to capture Emily as she turned one, sweet Katherine as a newborn, and now….this sweet family of 4. Not only their first full family shoot, but capturing Katherine as part of her exciting milestone of turning one!! One of the best parts of this shoot was being able to collaborate with their mom, Kristen, about her vision, the location, the colors, and the walls in her home that I know she wanted to fill. And watching it all come together?? Well, I may have done a little happy dance when I pulled up and saw this crew in these outfits….LOVE would be an understatement. :)
We started our morning with little Emily (as little sister finished up her morning nap in the car :) …watching her grow has been such a joy. Her longer hair, sweet smile, little mini-conversations…I could have followed her around all morning.
How much do I love an image with a big, tall daddy in contrast with his adoring little girl??
And why just walk, when you can hop along instead? :)
And then sweet Katherine joined the show! She flashed me that adorable smile from the word go and was quickly on the move! Thankfully, we wrangled her in for some mama love….adore these 3!!
I loved capturing these next few…knowing that this was their first full family shoot and how much it meant to have them all captured together!
And did I mention that Katherine was quick?? Look at that mama move in those fabulous heels….color me impressed, Kristen! :)
And these little smiles. These little people. My heart while I was taking these…
And yes, something about capturing two little sisters…I’ll always have a special place in my heart for these moments.
Barrett Family…as always, I loved my time with all of you….chasing your little ones and capturing all of you. As we know, these moments go so, so fast and I love that we captured this chapter in your story!!! xoxo
