This Los Angeles Family Photoshoot was soft and sweet. Ever been in a position to freeze moments in time? I can’t express how grateful I am to be able to do that. It’s the gift I get to give back to the world and to people, and this day was particularly special. I was invited into Kate and Danny's new home, the place that baby Rowe has known for exactly a month. It was so meaningful to photograph and watch a glimpse of these first-time parents doing their best. I captured a “blip of time in their element” using Kate's words, I love that perspective.
I photographed Kate and Danny for the first time over 4 years ago, before they got married. We've stayed in touch but photographing this part of their life made knowing them that much more meaningful. They're first-time parents and watching them do the everyday things was beautiful. I'm biased but I do believe that photographing the everyday parts of life is important. There doesn't have to be a particular event or reason to document your life. In fact, the fleeting moments are the sweetest and the ones you'll want to look back on because they pass by so quickly.
LOS ANGELES FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT
During this hour session, I walked in with baby Rowe Emilia asleep in her mama's hands. We started the session with her feeding time in the nursery. We cut it a bit too short so throughout our shoot sweet Rowe let us know and there was more feeding as we went. It is very normal to go with the baby's schedule, and it's important we embrace it. The point for our session is to photograph their day-to-day, as it is, as it flows, just exactly how it goes without interference. And because we did that, it was absolutely beautiful. I am so proud of these set of images, and I was thrilled to share them with Kate and Danny. Now I'm happy to share them with you.
This blog post includes digital, film, and polaroid photos from the session.
