Molly, Erik, and Ellen have another baby sister joining their family later this fall, so they wanted some photos of them as they are now- before the family grows.  I spent a few hours with them on a Saturday morning, and as I’ve gone through the photos I’ve smiled and laughed out loud- and been reminded how exhausting it is to have a three year old!  I think one of my favorite things about shooting journalistically, is that sometimes the action is moving so fast, that you don’t even get to see the story come out until you’re going through your shoot.  Besides Ellen’s hilarious, adorable antics, I noticed a few things in particular about their family.  I noticed that both Molly and Erik consistently give Ellen affectionate looks and touches.  I bet they don’t even know how often they do it, but it’s so evident how much they love her.  I also love that they go with the flow of her playfulness, and allow themselves to be surprised by it.  Hope these make you smile like they did for me!

I have truly never met anyone like Angela and James.  They are one of the most positive, joyful, loving couples I have ever met.  They describe themselves as true soul mates; even their two sets of parents have become best friends.  Each time I have spent with them, I can’t help but get excited by their excitement about life and each other.  The day was a beautiful mix of sacred and celebration.  Thank you guys, it has been such a joy getting to know you.
