One of my biggest joys in life is capturing moms and dads with their kids.  It’s common to prioritize the kids in pictures.  They are the “cute” ones.  They are changing so much every year.  As parents, we are tired and maybe have looked better in other seasons of life.  It’s not about us anymore, or that’s what we say.  But for our kids, it IS about us.  We are the center of their world.  And they will treasure the pictures that they have of us as young parents down the road when they try to wrap their heads around their own history and also try to understand where they may be going.

I especially love to capture photographers with their families, because I understand so well the feeling that we are capturing the beauty in other people’s lives all the time, and our moments are passing by unrecorded.  So I was so honored and excited when Rebecca Peters Haas wrote me to ask me to take some portraits of her and her husband and 19 month old daughter Elena.

I loved getting to know this family.  They are laid back loving parents.  They just let Elena do her thing, and they sat back and watched what happened and we all laughed at her hilarious expressions.  Here is are some favorites…
