This special family is very dear to me, as we have been friends for a long time and have girls who are the same age. It’s been such an honor to be invited to document their lives as our kiddos have grown up.
It’s been a fun tradition to do yearly pictures together, but this year when the time came, Covid-19 had tipped the world upside down. As stressful as this time has been, I believe it has absolutely been worth documenting it for our kids, so I proposed a Day in the Life Session. No dragging the kids out, no worrying about what would be open. Just photos in their home, in this moment in their lives.
Someday, I hope our kids have forgotten what it was like sheltering in our homes for months on end. But I hope if they remember anything, it will be that they were surrounded by love. The R family may grow up and leave this home someday, but I hope their girls remember just a little of the magic of a big girl bed with the Frozen comforter, or the feeling when Mom snuggled up close.
