It is always SO much fun to photograph and old friend. I’ve known Sibyl since high school, but we haven’t kept in very good touch. So seeing her in her mama roll with two sweet kiddos was pretty cool. I loved watching the whole family interact with lots of smiles and silliness. And considering that the color orange always makes me think of Sibyl, the Fall colors at Gabriel Park were an extra bonus! Thanks for asking me to photograph your family, Sibyl!

Oh how it rained on this day! But we made the best of it, and even found a rainbow (of sorts) at the end. You might recognize this sweet girl and her parents from a session we did a year ago (!!). It was a pleasure to get them in front of my camera again. (And thank you for hanging in there, despite the weather!)

It’s 10:30 at night. I shouldn’t be blogging. But the cuuuuute! I can hardly stand it. Twin sessions are so much fun. And I think about this mama waking up in the night to feed her littles…and I wonder if maybe she’ll take a quick peek at her phone. And see these photos. And be reminded that everything changes so fast…and to soak up every minute. Or maybe she doesn’t need reminding. Because, I mean, seriously…look at these faces!

These are my friends. Sometimes finding the words to talk about your friends is harder than talking about near strangers. How do you capture them in words? Knowing how little I can say about them in just a few, it’s hardly worth it to try. But I will. Knowing that you’ll get more from the images than what I have to say. I love how this family loves. I love the play. I love the snuggles. I love the silly. I love each member of this family as an individual and absolutely cannot wait to meet the fourth family member. Three hours is far away to live, but not too far. I’ll be there to love this baby too. See you four soon!!
