There are so many things I love about being a photographer and I feel so fortunate to be able to do this full time. One of the things that I love so much about photography is the ability to freeze time. My camera is to me what Thor's hammer is to him. It is my superpower. I am able to take a moment that otherwise would have been lost and preserve it for a lifetime. I only have seconds to grab those moments because in a blink of an eye they are gone forever. When I became a mother is when I heard the calling. I was desperate to hold on to every little moment because before you know it that little baby you held through the night is heading off to kindergarten. I needed to stop time and the only way to do it was through my lens.
I was so excited to photograph the Phipp's newest addition to their family. I had the honor of photographing Melanie during her first pregnancy and then photographing sweet Natalie when she was born. It was such a thrill to be able to now photograph Natalie as a new big sister and what an awesome big sister she is to Charlotte!
There is no greater thing on earth than the love and strength of a family. Melanie & Derek have the sweetest little family! Natalie & Charlotte are so lucky to have such loving and fun parents. I'm so grateful that I was invited into their home and allowed to share some moments of their life, welcoming baby Charlotte to the family, with all of you!
I chose to publish this session in mostly black & white because black & white make me feel the moment so much more!
Most important rule when visiting a brand new big sister spend some time with her first!
