Getting the chance to work with families more than once is basically like winning the photographer's lottery--it means the world that they've chosen me to tell another chapter of this beautiful, ongoing story of theirs. I genuinely enjoy hanging out with kids and noticing all the ways they've grown since last time, especially as they transition to being big brothers and sisters. The last time I worked with this family, Lucy was about Jack's age and we were working mostly in quiet, tender moments; now that the kiddo-parent ratio was evened up at 1:1, it was all about running around (on my part, at least) to catch belly giggles and sibling love, of which there was plenty. The sweet little baby girl I met the first time was replaced by an exuberant, independent young lady, and her wide-eyed, charming little brother was clearly taking mental notes on her every move as he followed along. Without a doubt, watching families shift and grow through my lens is one of the most enjoyable & rewarding parts of being a photographer.
