“When coming up with the concept for this shoot, the most important component was to let the photographs speak to the artistic lifestyle of the family. The Blacks own their own photography business and frequently travel to South Africa and across Europe with their two little boys. Their gorgeous family embodies what one may consider an artistic and adventurous lifestyle, but I also believe the true art of this family is in them simply being together.
These photos were meant to show the beauty of life in between, the moments we can take for granted as ordinary. Those lazy weekend mornings where everyone stays in there pajamas and mom and dad enjoy an extra cup of coffee. Little ones getting one more hug, an extra tickle fills the room with giggles. This time is what brings sweetness to parenthood and what our babies will remember about weekends at home.
Motherhood, or parenthood, really is one of the most profound things to photograph. The love between a mother and her child is one of the most unconditional and pure things on earth. Through the stress, exhaustion, and ups and downs, nothing is so steadfast as this bond and I think there is such a beauty in that. For me, it creates the most meaningful art.” Cassie, Photographer
