As I mentioned before, Steph is a super talented Maine photographer! She left a career in social work to spend more time with her awesome kiddos and to pursue photography full time (you know how I love it when people put their fears aside and jump in to their dreams…it always gives me chills to think about!). Be sure to check out her site and spend a moment on her blog- her writing is real and beautiful and funny and inspiring! Seriously. Add her to your reader!
So you might imagine how flattered and excited I was when Steph contacted me about doing a session with her family! It’s always a gigantic honor to have clients invite me into their homes and their lives and trust me to capture who they are as a family- ALWAYS. And to add to that honor recognition by a peer…well, it just doesn’t get more exciting!
We had so. much. fun. Eva is so outgoing! After a brief moment of shyness, she invited me into her room to read books and do crafts! I love love love an independent spirit in a child- especially little girls! (no offense fellas, I just have a special place in my heart for a little girl power!). I swear, you could literally see the wheels turning in her head as she moved from one idea to the next! And then sweet, sweet baby Miles. He just kicks back and takes it all in, accented with the occasional huge smile. Their personalities are perfect compliments and I’m already so curious to see how that interaction deepens as the kids get older!
But enough of my chatter!! On to some photos!!
Seriously, how often do you get to jump on the bed without consequences!?!
This little piggy…
Oh how I love squashed baby faces!!!
Eva, gettin’ down!
Did I mention that Steph and John grew up next door to one another? And played on the same rec league soccer team as kids (oh yeah. And the team picture is hanging along the stairway to prove it)? Ummm…can you say A-W-E-S-O-M-E!?!?!?!?!
Eva was ready to get outside! I can hardly blame her, the day was incredible!!
Went a little vintage with this one! I love her hand in her pocket!
2 little wee ones and he still looks at her like that when she smiles like this. Oh, how I LOVE love!
I just love this one for some reason…
Steph wanted to grab a few headshots to use in her marketing materials, so we had a little fun just the two of us! Does she not have the most INCREDIBLE skin and eyes! Gorgeous!!
I can’t get enough of this shot…I love the framed photos behind her and the way the light is hitting her face…
Thank you thank you thank you guys for a SUCH fabulous morning!! You are awesome!!
