I first met Kaleb when he was only twenty-four hours old in the hospital. It wasn’t until I saw him and immediately wanted to take some photos of him with his mama that I realized I had forgotten my camera. What was I thinking?! Kaleb’s mama, Mirjam is a good friend of mine from long before either of us was married. I appreciate her and her friendship in so many ways, and I especially I love her ability to share about life as if no time has passed since we last talked. Recently, Mirjam and her family moved right up the road from us and she contacted me about taking Kaleb’s three month old pictures (although technically at the time of the shoot he was four months old). She invited me to spend an afternoon with the two of them in their new home. Mirjam is a natural mother- so loving, caring, and comforting. Some things I loved about this shoot: his little toes, a blanket made by his grandmother, a dinosaur hat, airplane ride, his sock monkey, falling sleep in his mama’s arms, and Mirjam rocking him quietly on their front porch. These are their everyday moments that I love to capture.
