The Goodwins | Lifestyle Family Session

Katherinekcagle-TheGoodwins-153.JPG

One of my favorite humans and her family. ! I am so lucky to have been able to photograph her and her beautiful family again. She has been my long-time friend. (We met in middle school. I the awkward new girl in "Young Writers Club" and her the outgoing girl doing Monty Python imitations.) Life has ebbed and flowed, and we always make it back to each other. True friendship.

We ventured to Eastern Market to visit the sheds and the murals. Then to Belle Isle where we got to play in the unforgiving July sun and say hello to Canada. I feel so fortunate to be able to document my friend and her family for the third time. This season of life looks good on you. Miss your faces.

Talk soon,
Kate

It is more often than not my three year old will try to make it to the backyard. It is summertime, and Bug would almost always rather be outside. Even in the sweltering heat.

Talk soon,

If you are wondering what Documentary Family Photography is, here is my spin on it.

Why is your son crying hysterically you ask?

Because I wouldn't let him watch TV in the bathtub. #worstmomever

My mom always told me to find the humor in motherhood or else you will go crazy. Boy was she right! The raw honest emotion flowing from him was too much. I had to capture it. It is hard to see your child this upset, but the reason why was just too golden.

Life has been moving fast. How has my baby grown so much in what feels like a blink of an eye? While Bug is doing circles around us while it happens. Both boys are coming into themselves. I can't wait to see what sort of human Bean becomes.

Talk soon,
Kate

14/52: Beautiful, tenacious infuriating sweet love-able boy.

This beautiful, tenacious infuriating sweet love-able boy. I won't pretend I haven't been struggling. Motherhood is messy sometimes; it is hard and beautiful and challenging and heartbreaking. I was so glad to hear that my girlfriend had a similar experience with her little one. I cried with relief.

Those beautiful brown eyes.

We have to share our stories, mamas. Building our tribe around one another and supporting each other is so important.

February 21st, at Paint Nail Bar in Rochester Michigan, Anna blogger and founder of The Lipstick Journey officially launched her lipstick line. Her product line is cruelty-free, toxin-free and each lipstick purchase helps to give back to the fight against cancer. It was an evening filled with nail pampering, sweet treats, and laughter

Anna is documenting her 10 year journey through cancer in her blog Anna’s Lipstick Journey. She created her line to empower women and to encourage them to express themselves using the lipsticks. Knowing Anna and her “why” I was so stoked to be the one documenting the event. Her cause is one that is close to my heart.

Thank you Anna for letting me document your day.

Talk soon,
