MATERNITY & NEWBORN
This family is always the MOST spontaneous and joyful, and this session was no exception. I loved the little pop of red in mom's shirt, which perfectly complemented the greenery in our surroundings; I love ANYTHING involving tossing kids around; and I love the awe kids exhibit when experiencing nature. So good. Thanks for hanging out with me as always, M fam :-).
It was actually, literally freezing during this shoot - in fact it even started snowing in the middle of it! Brrrr. But these friends of ours (mom and I are colleagues from more than 15 years ago) were total troopers and we even managed to have some fun throwing leaves around in the process :-). So great to see you guys!
I'd like to formally offer this little one a newly-created position here at Turtle Street, available every fall: Chief Leaf Officer. Primary responsibilities include gathering leaves, sharing said leaves with others, and throwing them around :-). Seriously, HOW CUTE IS SHE?! So nice to meet you, M family!
It is absolutely amazing how far this guy has come in our many years of photographing him. He gained a new sister, and his mom is absolutely ROCKING IT at advocating for him. Not to mention, he took some of his first solo steps a few days ago, and you'll notice we have a picture of him sitting up, solo, unassisted. WAY TO GO, MOE!!
Moe's family is working on a GoFundMe for a special van, because currently his mom has to do a LOT of heavy lifting to get him in and out of the car. You can donate to that here. We hope you have a wonderful 10th birthday, Moe!
You know we love this family and they are one of our all-time faves. This session was no exception! I like to think playground sessions are my specialty, and luckily Miss Mona wanted her five-year photo shoot at one. As you can see, we did all the things and it was a blast.
Thanks for driving all the way to my side of town, and for your patience with this sneak peek! XO
