Goodness do I love this little family! Chris and Toni are dear friends of ours, and they are incredible videographers (check out their work, but grab a tissue first: Heart Stone Films and Portico Pictures)! I photographed their sweet maternity session, the birth of their baby boy Elijah, and his newborn session, and to see them now makes me all kinds of happy.
First of all, let me just say: I CANNOT get over this kid’s hair. Seriously? That red hair just like his mama that is SO curly and beautiful? It’s the best.
Secondly, I love love love that I was able to capture them in their home. They just recently moved in, and it’s so sweet to document lives and families in the comfort and familiarity of home. Not to mention, I know it helps the little ones feel even more relaxed!
Finally, we followed our time together with a sushi dinner to celebrate Chris’ birthday, and I stayed to capture bath time in the sink, followed by bedtime, which is pretty much my favorite thing ever. As a mama, I fully realize how quickly babies grow and how precious this season is. Sink baths are part of the daily routine now, but before long, he’ll be running around playing soccer, much too big to fit.
This is why family lifestyle photos are such treasures. Goodness I’m so grateful I was able to capture this sweet family in this season of their lives. Chris, Toni, and Lij – we love you. A whole whole lot.
