I usually edit to absolutely nothing. No tv, no music, nothing. This time was different, I had my itunes library playing and it made all the difference. As I was sitting here editing a picture of Connor hugging his beautiful mom, the song "feels like home" started playing. I didn't even realize I was signing along until I started getting teary-eyed at the photograph's connection it was verbalizing. I know it's meant to be a (romantic) love song, but in that moment no words could have depicted more perfectly the picture of a mother-son loving, trusting, safe bond. And now on to the pictures:)
Darling little Katherine was such a pleasure to work with for her newborn pictures. She was calm and perfect the entire time whether she was awake or asleep. What a beautiful blessing she is to her family!! look at that little pinky, what a dainty little thing:)

Katie contacted me about doing a themed shoot of her boys, when she described what she wanted it sounded awesome and like so much fun. When we got together the weather was perfect, and her plan was executed perfectly. I had the hardest time narrowing it down because there were so many fun and full-of-emotion shots I got that I couldn't stand the thought of discarding them:/ Maybe she can make a book with all of them;) *As a side note, she wanted everything in a warm B&W but there were a few images (as you'll see) I couldn't just do in B&W, they screamed color to me! I asked the boys to come with me and sit on this bench with no other direction than that, here's what I got: perfect. He kept sliding all over the place (on purpose) and it was darling.
