I became friends with Sarah through a class at our gym. At first I knew her as the blonde with the killer work ethic that always outran me. 🙂 Over time I got to know her as a loving mother of three, thriving in her growing business, who doesn’t let this life stage thwart her fun or her goals. And then, even for people that I know pretty well, spending a few hours photographing them in real time, with their kids, when it’s 100 degrees and there are snuggles and also tantrums, this always deepens my love for them. There were so many moments of affection between Sean and Sarah and their girls. I felt like I often feel, that I walked away with a handful of collected treasures. Moments of comforting a child, or a little laugh between parents that goes unregistered, but these little moments are what make up the life of their family.
I’ll start with a photo that I love to get- the entire family in one intentionally composed frame, with everyone doing their own natural thing. A truly frozen snapshot in time.
I’m so glad I finally got to photograph you guys! Much love.
