The End of a Season

My parents recently sold their dream home. They built the house they would raise 2 children in over 25 years ago.  They decided to close this season of their lives to start a new season in a new, smaller home with little maintenance so they can enjoy their lives more.  Before they turned the keys over the the new owner’s I wanted to document this time in their lives.

This mailbox is for my son. My mom and he put little treats in it for each other. He knows when the flag is up he has a little something waiting for him.

I can’t say enough good things about this family. They are great friends as well as clients of mine. I’ve gotten to watch their family grow over the last 15 years and when they found out a new little girl was joining their family, I was beyond excited.  You can see their family grow here, here, and here.

Baby J was a little gassy, mom’s touch relaxed and put her right to sleep.

Instead of the traditional newborn session, Catie and I talked about doing more of a lifestyle session after their sweet baby girl came home.  I love these types of sessions. There are no set expectations, no must-have shots. Just a family being a family and I get to document that. Perfection.

I stopped by Catie and Jason’s home one evening a few weeks ago.  The girls showed me their mad hula hoop skills while Catie showed me her mad cooking skills.  There were also lots of cuddles to be had.

This is the kind of session I love. We go to a great location and just explore. We walk, talk, and have fun. No pressure. We let the session unfold organically and the results make me smile.

Extended family came later in the session and I can’t tell you how good it feels knowing these pictures showing 3 generations will be cherished and passed down for years to come. It’s one of the reasons I love what I do.
