Sometimes I feel like I’ve grown with certain families. And by that, I mean that they have literally known me ever since I started photography and opened my business. This family came to me for a fall family mini session the very first year I offered the at Southford Falls State Park in Southbury,CT and they’ve become a family that I look forward to seeing them every single year. At the time they had two little boys, aged 4 and 6, and I continued seeing them year after year for Christmas minis and I for sure thought that their little family was complete. This past year, when we did our annual tree farm Christmas mini sessions in Connecticut, I was truly shocked to find out that mama was pregnant. This was such a journey for them as they had to go through IVF to conceive their third and final baby. The excitement for them can’t be described but mom and dad explained to me that every since they started working with me, they always had dreamt of booking me to document their pregnancy journey as well as their newborn baby. To say that I was honored is an understatement. These images mean the world to me, as this beautiful family welcomed their perfect tiny addition!
