I have a special place in my heart for this family. I was really taken by Rob + Janine when I met them + photographed their wedding in 2011. I found them to be so incredibly lovely, so in love, and such good people. Really good people. I wanted only the best for them and felt privileged to know them.
You can imagine how delighted I was to discover they’d had a baby, and that their goodness was expanding! Feeling this way, it was meaningful for me to be invited back into their lives to document their world with their wonderful new baby son.
I was invited back the following year for a toddler shoot, and again this past Spring — this time to document them as a family of four. We laughed our way through the shoot, with their eldest being such an innocent ham. What a pleasure it has been to know this family in this way.
I know the photos are for them, but each time I leave feeling better from our time together. I leave with this comforting sense that with people like this in the world, all is as it should be.
