I worked with this mama a few years ago before her daughter was born. It was just her and her son at the time. They always stood out to me as having a very special, unique relationship. He was just one of the happiest kids I’d ever met, and it was obvious that he was extremely close with his mother. Well now there is another addition to this family, and she is just as sweet as her brother. This mother is the kind of mother that I aspire to be. Her kids are her life, and she does such a great job of raising them. She lets them be independent, and lets them make their own decisions when possible. She is such a loving, supportive mother to them. And the whole family is just so happy! What warmed my heart was the way these siblings are together. It is clear that little A ADORES her big brother! She isn’t a girly girl at all… she brought her toy dinosaur with her (her “lovey”) and loved chasing her brother barefoot through grassy fields. A lot of kids her big brother’s age wouldn’t want to be bothered with a little sister tagging along, but not J! He looked after her in a way that was so incredibly sweet and mature for his age. I LOVED our shoot, beginning to end!
Thank you SO much C family for having me work with you again. I hope to do this for many years to come as they grow.
