Featured: A Family Park Documentary Session

The joy that 1 year old Lillian shows when she sees swings is seriously unmatched - I meeeean, that girl loves her some park time and in this season, it's a favorite activity with mom and dad.

When planning what activity to do for their session, Kelsey told me that swinging is what really lights her daughter up. She wanted to always remember that look of pure happiness on her daughters’ face and this simple family time together.

These daily activities— they seem so average sometimes, right? We snap a quick picture with our phone to send to grandma or a selfie when we're having fun and go about the day.

But when Lillian sees these pictures in the book on their side table 10 years from now, she'll be reminded that her mom and dad love each other and could be really goofy sometimes.

  • She'll see the park she visited so often in her childhood, a park that will likely change or maybe not even be there anymore.

  • She'll learn that she was obsessed with Micky Mouse and had no fear of heights from a young age.

  • She’ll see her mom being herself, laughing with her hair in a ponytail— how she was right there on the playground with her and ready with a hug or push one more time on the swings.

  • She'll see her dad's playful side, how he'd do anything to make her laugh.

It's the little things we fall in love with about our kiddos and what they fall in love with about us, too.

I'm so grateful for every client who says 'yes' to being brave and real, to letting me in to capture their story.
