“Back in February, before the chaos of COVID-19 hit our nation, I was fortunate to photograph this sweet family, who welcomed their first baby girl, Piper, into the world in August 2019. Lindsey and her husband, Garret, live close to the beach and frequent it often with their daughter. I loved watching them celebrate their growing family in a spot so close to their home. They are such laidback parents – it was very easy and natural to direct them, especially during interactions with their sweet baby girl, Piper. Despite the strong breeze and cool temps (these images were taken in February), Lindsey was happy to get down and play in the sand with her daughter. I love that they weren’t afraid to get a little messy!
I have always loved photographing mothers with their children – it’s a special relationship, one that can stand the test of time. Since becoming a mother myself, I have a newfound appreciation for these sessions. The photographs taken with your children are truly priceless; these are the images that you will treasure now and your children will treasure years later, when they are grown and the seasons have changed. They will always hold meaning. I love knowing that I’m creating something special for that family, but in particular, the mother.” Justine, Photographer
