When I met with Kate, TJ and Amelia for their “brand-new” family portrait session it just so happened to be Valentine’s Day :) So very appropriate because all I could feel and see throughout the entire session was this enormous amount of love they have for each other and of course for their beautiful little girl. It made me think back to a little over a year ago when we had welcomed our little boy, Tommy, into this world. Babies. As tiny as they are, they bring about so much laughter and joy. By the same token being a new parent can be frazzling at times. Let’s face it. It’s challenging. But everything you go through is BEYOND worth it because you have been blessed with a tiny miracle. Kate and TJ made it look VERY easy! They had revealed to me just before the session that they actually had some decent sleep the night before. And they definitely looked very rested! As for little Amelia, she was an angel, of course. Wide awake for pretty much the entire session. But by the end we definitely tired her out and before we knew it she was sleeping soundly in daddy’s arms. Here are some of my favorites from their session – enjoy!
