My best friend, Ashley, has two of the sweetest boys in the whole wide world. Just look at the adorableness! When her first son, Emmett, was born (almost 4 years ago!) I stayed at the hospital late into the night anxiously awaiting his arrival. I still remember the first time I saw him, and how incredible it was to finally hold him. Now he's grown into a hilarious and smart little man who is currently very into Harry Potter. About 6 months ago, Ashley and her husband Matt welcomed their second son, Liam. He is such a sweet and smiley snuggler! Emmett is already the best big brother. I can't wait to watch these boys have so many adventures together. Watch out world, the Dodson boys are bound to break some hearts!
Ashley and Matt wanted to capture Liam's 6 month milestone and get a few photos of the brothers together. I set up a simple white backdrop in their dining room next to the large sliding door. I love working with natural light and the white backdrop created the perfect surface to reflect the light. Capturing how a person looks at a specific point in time is important, but for a photograph to be a true clip of history I believe it should highlight how people interact in their everyday life; photographing this interaction is my favorite part of every session. You will see some of those precious family moments captured below. It has been so special to watch Ashley (someone I've known since we were pre-teens) become such a natural Mama. Her boys love her very much and they are all lucky to have each other.
