{a Mama & her birds}

There is something so magical about the raw connection between a mother and her babies. The kind of connection that can calm fears and dry tears. The kind of connection that can promote giggles and cure the wiggles. The kind of connection that can create art and mend a heart. The kind of connection that can read thoughts and entertain tots. For those on the outside looking in, this mother is something. For the three little girls she has created, this mother is everything. And they are everything to her.Image 1  

 

{Lane, Estelle & Dallas}

Some of my most favorite families to photograph are the ones that I've watched grow and expand over the years. These three belong to a very close friend, who I first met in college. I was honored to document an afternoon at the park with them, as they played and wandered and explored. Children are the reason I began this little business of mine, and they continue to be the reason I am still in it. Especially ones like these. Image 2 Image 3
