About two years ago, I had a family reach out about doing a mini-session at the National Cathedral. They had a new wee one, he wore a jacket with bear ears on the hood, and he was all smiles. Fast forward to this fall and I got the great opportunity to hang out with this family again (and wee one #2 who recently arrived). I love being able to see new family members join and to watch the littles grow up year after year.
Sometimes your photo sessions take you to the most dreamy places, like the local library. And who would ever say no to a morning with great littles and books? No one I want to hang out with, that’s for sure.
Images like this make my heart sing. They also remind me why I do what I do. It is for all the in between moments of life…when it is just a little girl, her bag of goldfish, and a mind that wanders to places we can only imagine.
I think it is fairly safe to say that I love the Son family. I have been friends with Daniel and Kate for quite some time, like pre-babies/marriage/dating quite some time and it has been so fun to watch their lives grow and develop over the years. It has been even more fun to be one of their family photographers! I had the great joy of photographing their first-born Gigi’s newborn and six-month photos and was so pleased to be able to be able to photograph their family before they leave D.C. for the wilds of Buffalo, NY. I’m going to miss you all!
