This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of photographing Kaitlyn. Our first session together was with her husband for her maternity photos in North Bend in the foothills of Mount Si. This time we met at Discovery Park in Seattle, found a spot in the meadow, and captured little moments of her and Jane, in images and video.
Now imagine with me for a moment how special it’ll be for Jane to grow up seeing images of herself being loved by her mom. Have you ever seen how excited children get when they see a picture of themselves? Research has shown that displaying family photos can be powerful positive affirmations for children, helping cement their sense of belonging and confidence.
This is why creating images for families is one of my favorite things. They’re not just a gift for us parents to always remember this season of our children’s lives, but they’re also a gift to our children. It impacts them now as they grow and will also become treasured memories when they’re older.
