“All that dreamy, warm CA sunshine, a stunning white farmhouse by the coast and this lovely family (with roots in the east similar to my own) and I was in heaven!
I pulled my car up to the wooden gate that warm, late summer afternoon and was greeted by the most lovely new mother. She smiled warmly, gave me a hug, and welcomed me up the gravel path, through a beautiful blue Dutch door to introduce me to her wonderful husband and their newest addition, little Kinsley! You could feel their love for her from a mile away. It was palpable. Sometimes I kinda cant believe this is my ‘job’ ~ to document love stories and capture those moments when little ones are brought into the world! It is pretty surreal and honestly, such a gift.
It’s funny, when I meet families for the first time, its honestly a bit hard to have a camera in my hands. I am so interested in ‘them’…in their ‘story’ that I just want to talk. I want to hang out and really get to know them. We moved around the space (indoors and out), capturing sweet moments in those places that mean so much to them as I learned more about their story ~ how they met, how they made their way to CA and about those blissful, sleepless, love-filled first days as new parents. That beautiful, hazy glow that enveloped them was more than I could have ever asked for.”
