Dear Perry Family,
I adore you.
When I look at this day I remember:
The way he looks at her
No matter how many times he tried to whisper David still couldn’t stop laughing
Space between them but a dear closeness still
How high he flies in the air and his fearless laugh
Hudson’s really wide eyes always carefully watching what I was doing
Bald babies…and kids. My favorite…maybe because almost all of my kids were bald until almost 3 years old.
How they are a little rumply laying on the bed together because all real families are a little rumply
The way she’s cuddling him and breathing him in
Those squishy, little chunky legs. Love them!
Brothers who share…spoons, ice cream…whatever
Eating lunch together and being so grateful to know you.
How do you do it all with so much grace? You are amazing.
Things you reminded me of that day:
There’s always time to slow down
Dogs are hilarious
My favorite part of the session:
The altoids mints that couldn’t be abandoned
Both girls wanting to be carried and how beautiful Clair looked in that moment
The upside down book
Dear Little Mister,
I loved following you in the orchard and watching how sweet you were with your sister.
I love when:
Parents get down on their kids’ level to talk to them, play with them
Dad’s chase their kids and the kids laugh and laugh
How excited everyone gets about lots of bubbles
Everyone lays on a blanket and there are lots of funny faces and laughing and talking
It looks like a rooster pooped an apple
I meet families like yours
Dear Cute Family,
Thank you for inviting me into one of the most intimate moments of life. Being at the birth of your sweet baby was a highlight of the year.
How can I not smile at:
That face looking up at you while you both kiss?
The way she’s nestled between you both?
The way you look at your new baby?
The sweet way you are with each other?
The tiny little back rolls of baby skin?
The cloth diaper?
it’s okay if you still have questions. I love to give you answers!
