Back in 2016 when I started this wild journey down the path of Documentary photography I put out a model call for families. One of those families was the Thornburgs. Abe and Sarah have two daughters: Emma and Kate. Here is a favorite photo of Emma and Abe during that first session.
I was ecstatic when they then booked a session with me the following year. That first session baby Kate was only a week old. By the second she was doing assisted gymnastics in the pool. See for yourself.
They grow up so fast don't they? I was seriously excited when Sarah decided to do a Motherhood session with me of just her and the girls. I love hanging out with them and this session was particularly special. Full of laughs and also some bubble related tears.
After bath time we moved on to lunch and nap time. Emma let me know that putting chips inside your sandwich is the way to go and that if Kate didn't finish her chips she was happy to help her out. I was also eyeballing the abandoned chips so as always I admired Emma for the honesty. Another new favorite saying of Emma's was "That's ridiculous." and personally I agree with that too.
Baby Kate was understandably tired after all of the fun we were having but Emma had different ideas about nap time that included less napping and more jumping on and off the bed to get various toys. Does anyone else think about how much they could get done as an adult if they only had a child's energy... or just me?
Interested in a Motherhood session? They are the absolute sweetest. And they don't all have to take place in the bathtub! Check out the pricing and details here. I am also currently offering a special for an hour long session for $175. The session must be booked in May but can be for dates through July. Limited spots available so contact me and let's start chatting!
