Last weekend, I met a dear friend of mine and her little one for a morning walk. With a new little one about to join the family, Molly was hoping I'd be able to capture a few precious moments of her and her first born.
Though I take plenty of pictures around my home and at school, this was my first time ever intentionally photographing a family. My first time out of my photography comfort zone! I was so nervous at first.
But... what an honor and a delight it turned out to be. These two are like family to me. They are such special, special people and I love to watch them -- their relationship -- unfurl as they grow together as mama and daughter. I had the most fun, simply tagging along with them on their nature walk and then quietly wondering around and snapping shots while they hung out together and played on the bank of the pond.
Being there for them, to document this small time and space of just the two of them, seemed like the most natural thing ever!
The air was warm and fragrant with the sweet aroma of summer wafting all around, whispering secrets of the day's possibilities.
