I was pretty excited when Savannah approached me to do an extended family session. We had known each other for a while through La Leche League and she was expecting her second. Breastfeeding and babies? Yes, please. And an opportunity to photograph her adorable son was totally the icing on the cake.
Grandparents were of course a part of this Extended Family Session. I think there is more than a little bit of Gator blood in this family. Possibly a third generation here in another 16 years?
Watching grandparents dote over their grandchildren is such a joy. I know, for my parents, it was almost more exciting than having their own children.
I loved his little face here. He was finally opening up and making some goofy expressions. As it turns out, this is his poop face. Sorry grandpa! Haha.
Finally, I captured the beautiful shape of her burgeoning belly. Supporting her only child while her arms are still free to.
And then, being supported by her family. Her village. I love finding deep and meaningful images like this for every family I work with. So much love and all the combined years of relationships captured in a single image. Oh, my heart!
