I’m not sure why I’ve chosen the following photographs as ‘best’. I don’t know if they’re the very best photographs or if I just absolutely love these people. Maybe I cried when I watched their slide show or when I got in the car after the shoot. I had an incredible year. I was in California, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin twice. And of course, my Massachusetts family has continued to blow me away with your support and love. Thank you, EVERYONE. You’re the very best families in the whole. wide. world.
Some girls have all the luck. Anna Lee invited me over THE WEEK before she gave birth to Mari. This is a smart, successful, ultra kind, chill, gorgeous mama. I’m lucky to know her and be trusted. Enjoy! The very next post is her baby! yay!
Man, it is soooo special to be invited into people’s homes when they’re just bringing home their child. I can literally feel the emotion in the room and I can see that new parents are utterly crushed with love. I love that. And watching Jimmy, who is a very cool headed doctor/entrepreneur fall madly in love with his daughter every second absolutely broke my heart wide open. Anna’s awesome mom was in from North Carolina to help out, and when she started singing old Puerto Rican (where they’re from) lullabies to Mari, there was not a dry eye in the house. Welcome to the world, Mari. You are crushed with love.
