Thankful for Velvet Gowns and Burgundy Jackets

Funny story. Before this session, I was literally thinking to myself, "Man it'd be really awesome to photograph a pregnant mama in a velvet dress later this winter if I'm lucky". Fast forward to this session. When Lauren stepped out of her car, my heart skipped a beat...AND THEN DEVIN PULLED OUT HIS JACKET. Internally I was like, "no waaaaaaaay omg YAAAAAAAAAY". Externally, I...didn't want to scare them away with my excitement so I played it real cool hahahaha

Lauren and Devin, thank you so much for finding me and trusting in me to capture your pregnancy and your growing little family. It was such a pleasure getting to know you both a little bit during our time together. You are both the kindest souls and little Remy is already so incredibly loved by you.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, to yours, to this universe we live in. It for sure isn't perfect and there's so much injustice of so many kinds across the globe but yet, at the same time, there is so much goodness in it too, only as long as we look for it and help add to it instead of negate it. We can help make the world a better place in all the ways that we are capable of. We can still be thankful for all that we are afforded with to live on this earth. I have such a feeling of gratefulness for this body that gave me my son, for this creativity that drives my photography and artwork, for the relationships I have cultivated throughout my life. For all of it. Thank you for being here in this space with me.
