I love capturing families in their own homes, it's a privilege that I take great honor in. I love being welcomed into a home to capture a family in their everyday beauty. When Lauren contacted me that's exactly what she had in mind, I was so excited as I feel it's so important to hold onto these precious and fleeting moments.
Lauren and Nick have two beautiful little girls and crazy schedules; Lauren runs a business from home with a 3 year old and 6 month (seriously, super mom!) and Nick has a busy work schedule, as well. It was just serendipitous that we got together days before Mother's Day, and I got to capture a lot of mothering moments. The beautiful moments that occur all the time and need to be celebrated more; nursing the baby while the toddler plays, preparing dinner with a special little helper, Dad's home coming the toddler and surprising Mom with flowers <3.
Lauren is such a gorgeous mother and I'm so glad she let me be a fly on the wall in her home for a while. I hope these images serve as a permanent reminder of the beauty in the everyday. The nights are long, but the years are short.
