Families with babies or really small kids make their way in front of my camera pretty often, but families with big kids don’t. I’m not sure why, but somehow we feel like kids stop growing as quickly when they hit a certain age and we just don’t make photos a priority. I’m sure some people do, like Emily + Matthew, but you know what I mean.
The Smalling’s are friends – we used to live in the same part of town and the kids go to school together. Harper, sister with straight blonde hair, is in the same class as Henry and Stella, sister with curly brown hair was in his class a few years ago.
Emily + Matt just finished building an adorable cottage in the backyard (pictured in the last set of photos) for Emily’s office and an Airbnb space. It’s so cute and I’m so jealous, lol!
