I love taking pictures of families in their element. For this one I just said, “Pretend you’re on a picnic and that I’m not even here.” Immediately they started playing “I Spy” and it was the cutest thing.
Also… have you ever met a friend and loved them right from the start? This is Lacey and her beautiful family. She is one of those girls that uplifts anyone she talks to and I am so blessed to have met her. I love her attitude towards mothering her kids and she does it so beautifully. Not only were her colors on point for their pics (Those of you needing inspiration… check it!) but afterwards she said, “Thanks for reminding us what’s really important in life.” Um. I love her. This family is as beautiful on the inside as they are on the out!
(Thanks for letting me take your pics, girl!)
It’s been a few weeks since I did this session at the hospital for my cute friend and I still am in love. There is nothing sweeter than seeing a sibling love on their one day old brother. (For those of you wondering about my “Mamahood Gallery” — I am working on a photography portfolio because I love capturing and celebrating motherhood (obvi.) and families! I don’t claim to be an amazing pro that makes millions and travels the world, I have so much to learn and I’m excited about it! I know it’s one more hobby to add to my crazy long list, but it’s been so fun and there’s always a tender feeling in the hospital when I take these kinds of pics, there’s nothing like it!)
Also excited to let you in on all the “Must-Haves” for your hospital bag if you are having a baby soon – stay tuned!
