The title of this post seems very appropriate. Yes, Thanksgiving is just around the corner…which encourages me to reflect on all that I am thankful for – including my health, my family, the love in my life, happiness and of course, the opportunity to make heartfelt connections with the families I photograph. There are too many things about what I do that I love…but on the top of the list has got to be becoming more than just a photographer to families – but becoming friends. It’s the most fulfilling aspect of what I do, and what makes it so special. The sweet angel below was only 7 days young for our session — and I thoroughly enjoyed capturing his itty bitty newborness….AND of course, getting to see his big brother again! These boys have such amazing parents….and I am so fortunate to be a part of their journey!
