If you are wondering what Documentary Family Photography is, here is my spin on it.
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.
This session was seriously so much fun! The kids did so well, and were hilarious to work with. Dylan and Nichole’s love for each other and the kids is so present. It made the experience so much more rich to be able to capture this time for them.
Nichole and I met in Kindergarten! (That was awhile ago, just in case you’re wondering.) We spent much of our youth together playing barbies, night time hide and seek, swimming and camping in each others backyards. To see her build her life with Dylan and become the mother she has always dreamed of has been amazing. Then to be able to document it for her — double amazing!!
Thank you Nichole and Dylan for letting me photograph your beautiful family.
