The job of a child is to play. (See: Hadley twirling in a dress, and Henry playing with Mama’s face, above). I am so, so grateful to parents like Billy and Jacque, who recognize the value of documenting their child not only outside in our beautiful PNW, but also in their babies’ natural habitat-their home.
Already, my oldest daughter loves to snuggle in my lap and look through the photo books we have made of her daily life. (Thank you, Instagram and http://www.artifact uprising.com!) She tells me about what she sees in the pictures-what she’s doing, who she’s playing with, what’s she’s eating, who loves her, who she loves, how much she loves playing babies or the park…etc. It is such a sense of security for a child, I think- knowing there is photographic proof that they are loved.
Thank you, Billy and Jacque, for letting me into your life on a Saturday morning so I can document your family doing what you do on a daily basis (see Jacque holding baby + coffee, above. Right, moms?!) Thank you for being yourselves, recognizing that these photos are also for your kids, and not worrying about “the perfect photo”. You guys are why I love what I do!
