You don't have to be tattooed, you just have to be awesome.
February 19, 2014

The first time I met this family, they had just added baby K to their family, were figuring things out and living in a home that Dad had renovated in the city. They were my first clients of 2012, I may have even shot them on New Years’ Day 2012. Fast forward, they were my very last clients of 2013 – I met up with them the day after Christmas this year, after adding a new baby on the same exact day, two years later. They’ve got this parenting thing down, now. New house, same pup, same awesome parents. I loved them the minute I met them and was happy to get to catch up with them again.

The Spark Notes version is here: they’re gorgeous, they make gorgeous babies, and their house is amazingly cool. But don’t hate them, cause they’re super real and fantastic.

Exhibit A: New Baby’s Nursery
Mama says she’s been a Star Wars girl since she was a kid. I loved Darth Vader and Sons! How cute is that?!

It’s hard to choose, but this is definitely one of my top favorites from the session!

Oh, gosh. I just realized this is going to be a very long blog post. Because I haven’t even gotten to any of the images of the brothers. Or the family photos. Or the parent and baby shots. Okay, I’ll pick this up. I feel like this is a great time to pull out my favorite Annie Leibovitz quote: “A thing that you see in my work is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.” I mean, not in a creepy stalker way, but like, you know what I mean, right? I can’t help it. It happens a lot. When people show you themselves in a photo, that thing that makes them THEM makes you fall in love. I feel like Rust Cohle in True Detective, but it’s true.

Proud big brother. Last one, I promise.
cool family photographer

And, I would be remiss if I signed this off without saying thank you to this fantastic family for trusting me to capture this amazing slice of your life again. I feel so honored to get the nod for the second time. I feel like Sally Field – “You like me, you really like me!” (If you follow all of my non-sequitors and weird references, well, good on you!) Seriously, though, you guys are awesome and I so enjoy working with and for you. I hope you will enjoy and will visit me again when these two are big. <3


PS – I realized that I wrote this whole blog post without explaining why I called this carbon copies. I mean – obvious, right? Two brothers, look alike? You honestly can’t tell these dudes apart in some of the photos, though. DNA wizardry.
