I have been making magic with this wonderful family since very soon after I launched my photography business. I have been able to photograph each of their (now three!) pregnancies and it's been such great fun! They are a goofy, active and energetic bunch. I always know that our shoots will be full of laughing, running, playing, and definitely have a dance party of some sort thrown in at some point. I love so many things about this family but what I love most is their deep appreciation for LIFE. And LOVE. And TOGETHERNESS. They truly understand what's important in life and don't fret the small stuff. They focus on their priorities and their priorities are each other. There is a solid foundation of love and respect upon which the entire family has been built and they've never lost their sense of humor and goofiness along the way despite how exhausting it is to have two littles and jobs to juggle and all that comes with life in general. If anyone can handle, with grace and humor, three kids 5 and under it's Kevin and Carly. When we were walking down from the parking lot and I was commenting on how gorgeous the light was, Kevin turned to me with the biggest smile and proclaimed: "I'm just happy to be alive!" And that pretty much encapsulates their constant, ever present joy. They are just HAPPY. Through and through. Happy and playful and light hearted and loving and compassionate. There is a gentleness about them that is just so utterly palpable. It's always such a joy to be around them and be able to participate in the goofiness and encourage the displays of their inherently playful nature. Engaging with each other and connecting is their "happy place", this is what they focus on. You can just sense that they don't get swallowed up by the nitty gritty details that bog so many of us down. Their sense of persepctive is firmly in place. Their commitment to each other is unwavering. I see them as a model of how I want to live my life and the kind of relationships I strive for. With my kids and with all my other relationships in my life. They are just truly fantastic people and it's an honor & delight to have them as clients and friends.
Carly & Kevin, here is your sneak peek with just a few favorites of mine. I cannot wait to meet your new addition, find out his/her name and see you all as your newly expanded family unit! ENJOY the sneak peek!
