I love capturing growing families and especially when there is an extra special connection. Nicole and I met in high school and our lives intertwined again recently when my son began going to the same preschool as her sweet daughter Mikayla. That said, I was delighted when she asked me to document the arrival of their second child, Ryder - now already a month old! Each time I photograph a maternity session I fall more in love with the process. And seriously, how could I not?!! Growing families are such a joyous celebration and something that I will continue to treasure artistically as long as I am blessed with the task of capturing them. Welcome to the world Ryder and congratulations Nicole, Travis and Mikayla!
