Hi! In the past two years a lot has changed for me, and this year for my birthday all I wanted was to have family photos taken in our local park. We had pictures taken when I was pregnant, and when Cole was first born, but clearly he’s changed quite a bit since he’s been a newborn! We joke that Erin has become our life photographer because I originally met her when she was a second shooter at our wedding. We look like such babies in those pictures, but I digress…
In the past two years I learned a lot about my marriage, my role as a mother, and really, truly getting to know myself. I see my life through new eyes and with a lighter heart and I wanted these photos to capture my family: My husband who has taught me what true unconditional love and patience is, and my sweet little boy who can make my eyes tear from simply reaching to hold my hand, grabbing my face for a slobbery kiss, or saying “waterlemon” instead of “watermelon”.
Life can be strange, challenging, difficult, and beautiful, emotional and amazing. Through it all, I’m so ridiculously grateful to have these two by my side.
