June 1st marked my very first session back since March – nearly 3 months without capturing others in front of my lens. 2020 you certainly have been a year
I was extremely nervous for this session – being off for so long – I just felt like it was my first day of school – but the moment it started all the nerves washed away and a huge sense of excitement was all I could feel. I missed capturing magic and moments like this session – I missed the connection and stories – I missed the love and emotion – I missed it all
It definitely helped that my first session back was with my dear friend and her growing family. According to a recent Facebook memory we became friends nearly 9 years ago – crazy how that time has flown by – she’s one of a kind folks – someone I look up to – an amazing mother to her beautiful girl, an awesome friend and just a genuine good person who I feel blessed to have apart of my life.
There was something symbolic about my first session back being a maternity session – the idea of a new beginning in so many shapes and forms. Documenting growth of family and all the emotions that go along that journey – I really couldn’t ask for a better way to begin capturing sessions again.
A few days later after this session took place this beautiful family welcomed their baby boy – congrats to you all xo
