“As a fine art photographer, sometimes it is easy to get caught up in what aesthetic I am trying to show, or what will look best as my next Instagram post. The reason why I love capturing families on film so much is because it forces you to look at the embodiment of love through a lens. There is nothing I adore more than capturing a mother’s love for her child. Asa is Eric and Shelby’s first baby, and he is the sweetest little boy in the world. It is so obvious to anyone watching that his parents adore every single thing about him. Shelby & Eric have been married a little under two years, and when I asked Shelby how her love for Eric has changed since Asa has come along, her answer blew me away.
She says, “I still feel like the luckiest girl in the world to be able to stand by his side as his wife. Seeing him as a father to our son has caused me to fall in love with him in a whole new way. During the birth, he never left my side and was such an encouraging and gentle partner throughout. Walking through this new season of life as parents has been an incredible adventure already. I am so thankful for his love and daily encouragement, but most importantly for always leading me back to Jesus.” Abigail, Photographer
