As many of our clients know, it is not often that we have the opportunity to fulfill the urgent desire to have family portraits taken within a few days time. With a calendar booked a few months out (we just opened our Fall calendar...so think fast!), the M. family was on the calendar for a late August session, but mom had that sense of immediate need--solidified by the thought that each passing day brings new milestones and growth. I was thrilled to catch Leah as she was, and her bond with each of her parents, just before the sweet age of 1. And the icing on the almost-birthday-cake? The confidence and trust their family had in our ability to do what we do best: capture a moment in time, to cherish forever. And now...what you really come here for. The gorgeous M. Family, ladies first!

Leah’s dad was especially sweet with his little girl. He knew exactly how to make her laugh, and when to give her a break. And I could not get enough of the bright blue eyes on Leah...simply stunning. 2


Thanks for bringing me into your moment, M. family!
