After that crazy storm today, I looked outside and could not believe how beautiful the light was! Lyla and I managed to get outside for a few minutes before the light disappeared. It almost felt magical.
Sometimes life works in beautiful ways and you meet someone who has such a strong impact on you at the exact time in life when you need it. I really like to live my life being open to new people, conversations and adventures. I met this absolutely stunning women on a train a few weeks ago, we were sat together, and ended up talking for hours about our personal lives, and our stories. A few days later we arranged to meet so I could take her portrait. I feel pretty darn lucky that I now get to call her a friend, and that I got to learn her life story. I’m deeply grateful for special people coming into my life when I didn’t see it coming.
I’m feeling a little nostalgic these days. My little girl is getting so old and our conversations are often so deep and important and big now, there are so many big feelings happening. Don’t get me wrong there are still so many moments of joy, but it’s hard on a mamas heart to watch your child learn that growing up comes with a lot of growing pains, a lot of emotions and a lot of hard feelings that don’t make sense sometimes. I feel pretty lucky that we have such an open honest relationship and we get to talk through all of it. I’m so proud of her beautiful brain every single day. ❤️❤️
I know summer still isn’t here, but I’m already thinking about what summer brings. Convincing my clients to get in the water for photos is one of my absolute favorite things to do. It’s hilarious and ridiculous and romantic, and it always creates such beautiful images. I’m counting the days until it’s warm enough!
