The great thing about being a family photographer who sees her clients on a regular basis is that we always do something a little bit different, and always fun. Being this family’s Westport kid and family photographer is a great example of that. Whether we play basketball or ride scooters or play in the pool or get to know a new puppy, it’s always something a little different. And we add a chapter each time to the storybook album collection at each session. (Stay tuned to the end of this post for some sample spreads that will show up in this most recent chapter, and some links to their past sessions!)
Mom’s birthday had just passed, and the boys showed me the origami cranes they had made for her for her birthday. (My favorite from this part of the session is HERE — so much love in a paper crane and a big hug!)
Here are two of my favorite spreads from their most recent storybook album. You know that I love these albums — they’re the perfect medium for telling the story. Here, we see boys sitting sweetly together on the chair, and then mom comes and tickles them from behind, and then it’s a tickly unraveling from there. Love it.
So there’s my little glimpse into this chapter of this family’s life, and into mine as a Westport kid and family photographer. (There’s one more HERE). I’d say we’re both pretty lucky — wouldn’t you?
The mom in this family is a lot like me in the way she values photos — her enjoyment of the moments with her boys is almost bittersweet because she realizes how wonderful they are and how quickly they go by. I imagine her looking through her storybook album years from now, and it makes me really happy that she’s got these moments — all of them — to enjoy over and over. You can see their most recent session — one of my all time faves — HERE if you like!
Thanks for looking!
